Encoded Manual Pedestal
Up to 85 kg (187 lbs)
The Quattro SE is a lightweight and compact manually operated pedestal with built in encoders, making it perfect for today’s virtual studios.
Building on the award winning Quattro S, the SE variant maintains all of the benefits of the ergonomically assisted lifting column, the small doorway width, and the on shot performance of any Vinten pedestal.
To provide the tracking solution, high quality precision encoders have been integrated into the wheels and column. Also included are two electronics modules, a base processor and a head processor, which deliver the accurate position data for all axes. This combination provides precise real time digital electronic positioning over the floor and in elevation.
A PDA is included to provide the configuration and operator’s user interface, significantly simplifying the set up in the virtual studio. This is delivered through the latest calibration routines, head set up and optical axis offset input, whilst also providing the operator with enhanced functionality such as quick homing, and virtual set trimming.
The homing procedure has been simplified further for ease of operation, with flexibility on the direction and angle of approach, and a fast targeting option. A cable management system is incorporated into the pedestal, to prevent the cable being caught or tangled during repositioning.
In keeping with Vinten Radamec’s aim to simplify virtual tracking solutions, the output from the pedestal is integrated with the Vision 250E, Vector 430i, Vector 750i and Vector 950i head and lens position feedback into a single data channel to the rendering system of a virtual software image generator.
The combination of simplified homing and set up procedures, precise digital electronic positioning and on shot performance ensure that the Quattro SE is an ideal solution for virtual studios around the world.
