The Matthews Panel Stand.
At IBC, Matthews Studio Equipment will introduce the Panel Stand for fast set-up and mobility for a variety of compact video production tools.
Matthews said the Panel Stand was designed to match the portability of lighter weight production tools. It has low profile legs like that of a medium roller stand, mixed with wind up columns used in Matthews Mini-Vator stands.
These allow for clearance of long, wide or low hanging lights, large monitors and other devices. The rolling base makes it easy to roll underneath a variety of setups with little clearance.
The stands come equipped with a balanced and built-in carry handle for transport and will fold up for storage. The main crank column can be adjusted and lowered at the leg base. The low rolling base makes it possible to roll underneath furniture, vehicles and many other set ups with low clearance.
The Panel Stand features a wide height range from 55-inches to 130-inches and holds up to 100 pounds.
