Sachtler Scores Government Video Salute Award for FSB 6
is proud to have received the Government Video Salute award for the new FSB 6
fluid head and revolutionary FSB Cell at GV Expo Nov. 15-16, 2007, at the
Sachtler’s new FSB 6 fluid head, designed for MiniDV and (H)DV offers low mass
cameras the same smooth pan and tilt movement that operators have enjoyed with
larger camera packages on Sachtler’s heavy-duty fluid heads. FSB 6 is
engineered especially to support payloads from 2.2 to 13.2 lbs (1 to 6 kg).
When combined with Sachtler’s revolutionary FSB Cell, a new concept in battery
design, the new fluid head becomes a real powerhouse. This 10.5 AH lithium
rechargeable camera battery, which fits directly below the camera, provides 8
hours of shooting time to new generation compact DV and (H)DV camcorders.
The awards were presented by NewBay Media’s Government Video Magazine for the
best new and innovative products in the professional video industry. The Salute
Awards focus on products that are particularly appealing to the government
video marketplace. To be eligible for a Salute, products must have been new and
on display at GVExpo for the first time.
The FSB 6 fluid head and the FSB Cell also received three prestigious awards at
NAB this year: the TV Technology Star Award, the Videography Vidy Award and the
DV Black Diamond Award (FSB 6).
