Today, Vitec Group brands Sachtler and Vinten introduce Flowtech 75 - an all-new camera tripod technology with unique quick release brakes and easy adjust levers. Planned to be showcased at this year's IBC show, the Flowtech™ tripods enable camera operators to set up and begin using the tripod in an instant.
“In the arctic, from atop mountains, on the beach or on the sea, flowtech has been used and tested in every single environment you can imagine. We believe it’s the next evolution in tripod technology, and it promises to transform the way camera operators work,” said Tobias Keuthen, Director of Global Product Marketing Management. “flowtech is the type of innovation that happens when two legendary brands from the broadcast, film, and video industries join forces.”
The revolutionary new tripod technology is designed to simplify and accelerate camera operator's workflows with instant and easy setup, versatile height range and exceptional torsional stiffness.
Lightweight and easy to transport, flowtech 75 is specifically designed to be carried comfortably on the camera operator’s shoulder, with magnetic locks ensuring that the tripod legs are stable during transport. flowtech 75 can be deployed as low as 26 cm (10 inches) and as high as 153 cm (60 inches) without the detachable spreader, and between 63 cm (25 inches) to 157 cm (62 inches) with the spreader.

The flowtech design offers a set of two-stage carbon-fibre tripod legs with an easy-to-remove mid-level spreader, rubber feet, and a payload capacity of 20kg (44lb).
Unique quick-release brakes located at the top of the tripod enable all of the legs to be deployed simultaneously and adjust automatically to the ground’s surface, eliminating the need for operators to bend over or manually adjust multiple brakes on each leg.
The Flowtech 75 is compatible with all major 75-mm fluid heads and is ideally suited for fluid heads from the Sachtler or Vinten range. The tripod is an ideal to use with digital cinema cameras such as the Sony FS7, Blackmagic URSA Mini, and Canon C300 MKII.
