Miller Fluid Heads (Europe) has announced that its Skyline 90 Fluid Head is to make its debut at IBC2017 next month.

The Skyline 90 supports payloads of up to 75kg and features all-alloy heavy duty construction. It has been designed to meet the standards presented by challenging environments and the often harsh conditions of outside broadcast.

It has a sliding platform featuring 300mm of sliding range that glides with a full payload and balances heavy camera loads.

The Skyline 90 also comes with an auto safety lock to ensure a secure horizontal position when loading or dismantling heavy box lenses. Two bubble levels located at either side of the head allow for convenient levelling. The floating calliper pan and tilt locks with large metal levers and can be operated simultaneously with one hand without causing picture disturbance.

Optional features of the Skyline 90 include a quick release wedge plate for sturdy camera mounting and heavy duty, industry standard telescopic pan handles.

Mike Lippmann, European Manager, Miller Fluid Heads (Europe), said: "The Skyline 90 was created with the demanding broadcast professional in mind and is the perfect fluid head for OB productions. IBC is the perfect opportunity for Miller to showcase its latest technology to the European broadcast industry. We look forward to providing visitors with the opportunity to experience the Skyline 90 and the right feel associated with Miller's product line."
