(Burbank, CA--April 7, 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 challenges. This year one of their coolest new tools is the MQ Mount, a simple but highly creative way to mount T-12 light tube fixtures with minimal light loss.
“The T-12 LED lighting market is booming as technology continues to advance beyond incandescent and fluorescent fixtures,” says Tyler Phillips Vice President Matthews Studio Equipment. “From three-point lighting to practical, the low-profile of the T-12 LED has endless applications. The new challenge – rigging these low-profile lights securely and quickly without crushing the lamp. The stem-rod for the MQ Mount can be expanded in a variety of lengths, making the placement of lights simple.”
The mount features the industry standard 3/8” pin which can be used with any industry grip head. The pin is knurled to prevent unwanted rotations and is internally tapped ¼”-20 to expand its length and rigging capabilities. (Patent Pending). Manufactured from lightweight, high-impact plastic and aluminum parts, it is compatible with all T-12 fixtures, both fluorescent and LED.
