LAS VEGAS, April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- At the National Association of Broadcasters show, Manfrotto Distribution, world leader in the equipment and accessories industry for photography and imaging, has released the "500" tripod head and 4 systems at NAB this year. This completes the series of 4 heads that incorporate the Bridging Technology originally introduced 3 years ago with the release of the 504HD head and tripod systems.

"It is great that we are introducing the "500" heads as replacements for the 701HDV this year at NAB," said Wayne Schulman, Sales & Product Manager, Video. "The 504HD, 509HD and the "502" heads have been a huge success and Bridging Technology has proven itself as a great design in the field. I look forward to extending this technology to smaller payloads that are handled by the "MVH500AH" flat base head and the "MVH500A" 60mm half ball version."

Bridging Technology was born out of the need for different payloads in different configurations to be balanced on the same tripod and tripod head. It also took into account the need for smooth, consistent, fluid movement required by the larger sensors. The revolutionary ergonomics of Bridging Technology was designed for better handling of the weight variations while the inner workings of fluid cartridges and ball bearings created the smooth and consistent fluidity. There truly are no other heads in the industry quite like it. 

The "500" and "502" heads are also available with a flat base that allows for easy use on sliders and mini-jibs. The 4 heads are available in aluminum tripod systems and carbon fiber tripod systems, all also coming with a tripod bag.
