Matthews Panel Stand Cranks Up Production Accessories

Matthews Studio Equipment has announced the Panel Stand, a quick set-up stand that supports panel and balloon-style lighting fixtures, LED monitors, screens, overhead frames and backdrops. 

Matthews said the heavy-duty wheeled crank support offers a maximum height of 11-feet and a minimum of just 55-inches. With a load capacity of up to 80 pounds, it can support panel lights as well as 45 to 85-inch monitors.

Built for low clearance, Panel Stand’s main column can be adjusted and lowered at the leg base while its shallow wheelbase facilitates rolling underneath furniture, vehicles or other obstacles.

This wheeled carrier also comes equipped with premium Tente caster wheels, pins to hang a door rack for truck storage, a 1-⅛-inch Junior receiver, a ⅝-inch Baby pin, and a built-in ergonomically balanced carrying handle for transport.
