Miller Camera is to debut its Air Tripod System, newly released to the U.S. market, at the 61st annual Texas Association of Broadcasters (TAB) 2014 (Booth 91).

The Air Tripod Systems are lightweight travel companions for ENG crews shooting videos and photos in outdoor conditions. The systems come in two versions; the Air Carbon Fibre System and the Air Alloy System. Each consists of an Air Fluid Head, offering professionals authentic Miller fluid head pan and tilt technology, and a variant of the Solo 75 2-Stage Tripod. The Air Fluid Head, composed of magnesium alloy housing and precision components, comes with two positions of selectable counterbalance and a dual pan handle option. Both systems have the ability to support payloads ranging from 5.5 pounds to 11 pounds.
Miller will be showcasing the Air Carbon Fibre System, which consists of the Air Fluid Head and the Solo 75 2-Stage Carbon Fibre Tripod, at the show. It features all the benefits of the Air Alloy System but at a lighter weight - totaling at 9.9 pounds versus the Air Alloy System's weight of 10.8 pounds.
Miller will also be showcasing its Compass 12 Solo 75 2-Stage Carbon Fibre Tripod, Arrow 40 Solo ENG 3-Stage Carbon Fibre System, Compass 25 Sprinter II 2-Stage Carbon Fibre System and Skyline 70 Heavy Duty Studio Alloy Tripod System.
Sitting atop the tripods will be prompting solutions company CueScript's new CSM17 17" LED High Brightness HD-SDI Prompter Monitor, which was built to exceed all necessary requirements for today's broadcast productions.
"Texas Association of Broadcasters is the ideal tradeshow to introduce the Air Tripod System to the U.S. market, as it is attended by an array of forward-thinking leaders in the broadcast industry who are interested in learning about cost-effective technical solutions that can help their productions to operate smoother," says Gus Harilaou, regional manager for the Americas, Miller Camera Support, LLC. "Our products are well-suited for ENG crews, both for their exceptional durability and versatility.
