(Burbank, CA--March 12, 2018) Matthews Studio Equipment
, a leading manufacturer of camera and lighting support for the entertainment industry, is set to debut their new DuttiDOCK
, the perfect support for operators on the go, at NAB 2018. The company is creating equipment that lasts, support equipment that not only stands the test of time but adapts to all types of shooting challenges – and supports creative ideas, whenever a shooter discovers the possibilities.
“We have all seen camera operators or assistants rest the camera on their knee between takes, to change out a lens, or make a change to the camera,” says Tyler Phillips, Vice President Matthews Grip. “We knew there had to be a faster and safer way to do this without having to drag your tripod around everywhere.
“The DuttiDOCK was designed to be a safe home to quickly mount your camera in between shots – and it works with any grip or lighting stand.”
The DuttiDOCK, a camera docking sled that, when paired with a Ronford Baker Quick Release Plate, or similar locking plate, can convert a medium weight light stand into a convenient camera support. Being able to access your camera safely and quickly, whether you are on set and need to make changes between takes or just rest your shoulder or doing data transfers or easy maintenance is a must in this current high-pressure world of production. It’s even great for positioning the camera during set lighting, talent blocking and rehearsals.
Made of strong aircraft grade aluminum, the DuttiDOCK features long mounting slots for adjustable plate balance position, rear cut outs to enable easy access to camera plate release and more. It even has removable hooks for hanging tools and camera accessories. And more.
Come see Matthews’ new DuttiDOCK and other support gear at NAB 2018, Booth C5437 – under the big white Matthews balloon.
