News Image
Miller Camera Support Equipment is to showcase a diverse group of tripod systems, including the new Cineline 70 Tripod System and robust Air Tripod System, suitable for an array of applications at Broadcast Asia 2015 (Stand 5L6-05).

"We received an incredibly positive response when we first introduced the Cineline 70 fluid head to the Asian market and are thrilled to be returning this year to showcase the new Cineline 70 tripod system along with the agile Air tripod system," says Greg Thomson, Miller regional sales manager for Southeast Asia. "With both systems on display, Miller caters to both the cinematographic and broadcast markets, offering a range of industry professionals robust, lightweight, cost-effective solutions designed to enhance media productions."

Ideal for cinematographers, the complete Cineline 70 Tripod System includes a new heavy-duty (HD) Mitchell Base 1-Stage alloy tripod and HD alloy ground spreader to complement the Cineline 70 fluid head. The tripod boasts a fast and easy setup, with features that include a high-capacity leg-lock system, deploying turn-lock levers with rapid lock/release action, as well as a heavy duty Mitchell Base with a built-in bubble level. Additionally, the sturdy ground spreader, designed for rapid setup and pull-down, easily attaches to the tripod and is optimal for use on flat surfaces. The fluid head, constructed of corrosion resistant alloy, offers advanced precision fluid drag control with ultra-soft starts, smooth stops and perfect diagonal drag transition, as well as counterbalance systems with "all-in-one-location" control layout. It is set to accommodate industry-leading camera mountings, including Arri, Sony, RED, and Canon, and it also features an Arri-compatible, side-loading camera platform, along with an optional, easy-to-fit Mitchell base adaptor.

Additionally, the fluid head comes equipped with an extended sliding range to promote quick and seamless rebalancing of the rig when lens and accessory changes result in weight distributions. As an added bonus, the fluid head offers dual side mounts for monitors and accessories, as well as an assistant's box front mount. Built with the strength and torsional rigidity to take on heavy payloads, the Cineline 70 tripod system has a capacity of 82.7 pounds, providing stability and security when supporting varying rigging configurations. Alternatively, Miller's Air Tripod Systems are the ideal, lightweight travel companions for professionals who are shooting both videos and photos in rugged, outdoor conditions. Both are compact, adaptable and durable. Each system 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 two kilograms (4.4 pounds) to five kilograms (11 pounds).

The Air Alloy System (3001) consists of the Air fluid head and the Solo 75 2-Stage alloy tripod, which is designed to provide the single operator with a complete run-and-gun system. Selectable leg angle locks ensure rapid stabilization at any height, with the tripod boasting an impressive range, capable of extending from 234 millimeters (9.2 inches) to 1625 millimeters (64 inches). Its sturdy alloy, magnesium design ensures durability and its new rapid lock system can lock or unlock with less than one quarter of a turn. The tripod's Neoprene leg protection allows for exceptional grip and is ideal for users who are either carrying or setting up the tripod in extreme weather conditions.

The Air Carbon Fibre System (3005) consists of the Air fluid head and the Solo 75 2-Stage carbon fibre tripod, which is purpose-built for professionals who desire to work with the most lightweight camera support technology.

The Air Carbon Fibre System features all the same benefits of the Air Alloy System but at a much lighter weight, totaling at 4.5 kilograms (9.9 pounds) versus the Air Alloy System's weight of 4.9 kilograms (10.8 pounds), while still retaining its durability. The Air Carbon Fibre System offers both cinematographers and photographers rock solid stability and is ideal for rugged, outdoor shooting conditions.
