Vinten said Ceiling Track is integrated with the Vinten control system so that it can work alongside Vinten's existing line of pedestals, heads and elevation units to create a flexible combination for modern broadcasts.

Also integrated into the Vinten Control System, the Vantage compact robotic head represents a flashcam solution for larger studios with the HD-VRC software. For smaller studios and users such as theaters and houses of worship, Vinten has developed the µVRC [micro VRC]. This cost-effective, modular version of the control software allows smaller budgets to leverage the Vantage compact robotic head with a variety of cameras and lenses.

Vinten will also introduce an External Lens Drive for its Vantage compact robotic head. With this solution, users will be able to upgrade their manual lenses with full servo control when used in conjunction with the Vantage pan/tilt head. The external lens drive can motorize 1-3 axis of the lens and provide encoded data suitable for use in virtual reality sets.
