New Matthews Docking System
Burbank, California: Matthews presents the latest in a long line of problem solving equipment stands. In response to the increased use of gimbals on a multitude of shoots, Matthews created the new Docking System to keep these essential tools safely out of the way yet ready for action between shots. Matthews’ solution combines the dependable Slider Stand and rugged Dutti Dock. The result is a handy platform for making rig adjustments with a 3’ footprint, a fraction the size of the traditional cart—making it much easier to position close to set.
The wide-based Slider Stand comes with two rocky mountain legs for easy leveling on hills, mountainsides, rocky environments, stairs and other uneven terrain. Built for travel, it collapses to just 25”/64cm and comes with black anodized aerospace-design-inspired braces. With black chrome plating, it is at home on any set, especially when combined with the stealth black Dutti Dock. Constructed of 6061 T6 aircraft-grade aluminum, the docking sled offers a multitude of mounting options including 2 long cheese plate slots for adjustable plate balance position, 18 holes, along with four removable accessory hangers to support a fully loaded gimbal rig or camera setup.
The Docking System is available in three versions: The 99045 offers the Dutti Dock/Slider Stand, the 99046 adds a Matthews sturdy Caster Wheel set of 3, and the 99047 ships complete with the heavy-duty Rock n’ Rollers wheel set with rigid safety locks—for extremely rough terrain locations.
