News Image
Miller Camera Support Equipment will unveil two new product ranges – the arrowX Series and the Combo Live Pedestal Series – at Broadcast Asia 2016, it has been announced.

Going on show to the Asian market for the first time, the Arrow range has evolved to include new fluid heads arrowX 3, arrowX 5 and arrowX 7. A new feature of the series is Miller's CB PLUS – a sequential counterbalance design to allow for repeatable and accurate setup. CB PLUS features eight large counterbalance steps to enable the user to get to their needed position quickly, while a switch adds a half step, enabling counterbalance refinement. The arrowX Series is suited for ENG, EFP, Studio and field OB, as well as other situations were fast re-rigging is required.

All arrowX models come with 120mm sliding plate travel to help quickly re-balance changing camera payloads, and precision ball bearing supported pan-tilt movements help deliver smooth starts and soft stop fluid actions. Precise floating pan-tilt calliper locks ensure bounce free on-off locking.

The arrowX 3 has a payload range of 1 to 19kg, 16 positions of counterbalance and 5+0 pan and tilt drag positions. It is designed for lighter cameras used in ENG, documentaries and EFP applications.

The arrowX 5 has a wide payload range from 2 to 21kg, 16 positions of counterbalance and 7+0 pan and tilt drag positions. It is designed for larger ENG and EFP applications including documentaries, drama and television commercials.

The arrowX 7 has a payload range from 6 to 25kg, 16 positions of counterbalance and 7+0 pan and tilt drag positions. It is designed for heavier rigs, including in-studio and OB applications.

At Broadcast Asia 2016, Miller will also demonstrate the new Combo Live Pedestal Series. With a carry handle for the column and dolly, this compact and portable pedestal range offers an easy setup with column tension control and a safety lock. Its air adjustable column system also allows for quick payload balancing.

Joseph White, Regional Sales Manager, Asia and Africa, Miller Camera Support Equipment, said: "We have always monitored the Asian markets closely, and with the introduction of both the arrowX and Combo Live Pedestal Series, we have taken the feedback our users in Asia and across the globe to create our most broadcast-friendly products to date. With new features such as the CB PLUSTM counterbalance system featured on the arrowX, as well as the easy adjustments for the Combo Live Pedestals, broadcasters are now able to rig and re-rig for quick and efficient shoots with ease – both in the studio and on location."
