Miller Highlights 60th Anniversary with Raffle of a Replica of its Original Tripod

Miller gives back in honour of its 60th Anniversary.

The company hosted a charitable raffle at IBC to commemorate the company’s 60th anniversary with a champagne toast and a raffle of a limited edition Miller LP ’54 Classic Tripod. All proceeds from the raffle were donated to the IABM Educational Foundation, which supports broadcast students interested in furthering their technical education.

“We are honoured to partner with the IABM Educational Foundation at this year’s show, as the charity is committed in its efforts to advance engineering skills in broadcast and media technology on a global basis through education,” said Mike Lippmann, European Manager, Miller Fluid Heads (Europe) Ltd. “As a company that strives to continuously develop camera support solutions that help cameramen improve the way in which they capture imagery, Miller is committed to assisting the next generation of forward-thinking creators and fortifying the future of broadcasting through education. We are happy to raise money for the cause.”

If you want the replica Miller LP ’54 Classic Tripod, you’ll have to win one as the company only made 60 of them and they are not for sale.
