(Burbank, CA--March 20, 2018) Burbank, CA-based manufacturer of camera and lighting support for the entertainment industry, Matthews Studio Equipment
, mantra 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. So, this year they are set to debut their new KStackers II lighting support at NAB 2018.
“Often, today’s shooters, who work mostly with LED and FLO lights, find themselves in situations where they need to get larger soft light out of the lights they have, but don’t have the gear they need to make it happen,” says Tyler Phillips, Vice President of Matthews Grip. “With our new K-Stacker II it’s easy. Based on a concept from Canadian-based gaffer Alex Amyot, Matthews has created a strong and robust tool that turns Kino Flo LED Panels and Fluorescent Fixtures into larger light sources.”
K-Stackers mount three FreeStyle 31 LED Panels or two 4’/4’ Banks in a row. The LED controllers and 4Bank ballasts rig on the stand, or remotely up to 75 feet away via head extension cables. Or power the LED’s via 24VDC batteries mounted on the K-Stacker. 4Bank Fixtures can rotate from a horizontal to a vertical light fixture mode.
Now it’s simple to build several of the world’s popular, professional, fluorescent fixtures into a compact configuration – easily – quickly – and save money at the same time!
Come see Matthews’ new KStackers and other support gear at NAB 2018, Booth C5437 – under the big white Matthews balloon.
