Matthews Studio Equipment will feature their innovative MatthewsSLIDER at IBC 2014.

The MatthewsSLIDER camera platform has open construction “that makes our new slider stand out,” explains Robert Kulesh, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for MSE. “MSE designed it to be both camera operator and grip friendly. As long as it is kept clean, it is virtually maintenance free. And it is totally field adjustable with few basic tools.”

The slider can work upside-down for low-angle shots, can support more than one carriage at a time for A-camera and B-camera shots. It has positive lock at 90 degrees when in use on most dollies. Each carriage can support up to 175lbs (80kg) (bracing of track might be necessary). The proprietary wheels with ABEC5 stainless bearings and ceramic balls make MatthewsSLIDER very fast and extremely quiet.

MatthewsSLIDER comes in four basic sizes: 29”, 35”, 45” and 70” (74cm, 89cm, 114cm, and 178cm) and can also be customized to the user’s specifications.

Fully factory assembled, MatthewsSLIDER will accept any gear head/fluid head/camera combination. The package includes a Mitchell swivel base and Mitchell carriage, as well as Mitchell 2” risers, filter plate, slim design locking handle, a set of leveling legs, and extras. Additional accessories are also available from MSE.

Matthews Studio Equipment are at IBC 2014  in Hall 11, Row G, #71.
