Matthews Studio Equipment brings several updates to classic product lines as well as new equipment to their growing catalog of grip gear. An update to the K-Stacker, the K-Stacker II allows for (3) Kino Flo Select 31 fixtures to be mounted vertically on one position, or (2) classic 4-bank Select fixtures. The unit features junior pins at the base and out the side, for horizontal or vertical rigging, and a baby pin on the top for grip heads and other accessories. Also updated was the Dutti line with the Dutti Dock, which is a camera sled that, when paired with a quick release plate, allows for convenient camera support on any medium-duty light stand.
New products from Matthews included the MQ mount, a rugged T12 clamp that is designed to be a tight fit without the possibility of over-tightening and damaging the fixture. Also new is the panel stand, a crank-driven light stand with a combo mount and a low base, specifically designed to support long 120-profile fixtures in a vertical orientation without their running into the legs of the stand.
