MATTHEWS PANEL STAND CRANKS UP LIGHTS, MONITORS, & MORE
by Valerie Taylor
Matthews Studio Equipment, offers yet another smart solution that makes life on set a bit more convenient. New Panel Stand answers the need for a quick set-up stand that aptly supports today’s panel and balloon-style lighting fixtures, LED monitors, screens, overhead frames and backdrops. What’s more, convenient wheels add on-set mobility especially combined with the low profile legs to maximize leeway and maneuverability, even with low hanging equipment.
This heavy-duty wheeled crank support offers a maximum height of 11’ and a minimum of just 55”. With a load capacity of 70/80 pounds, it is an ideal mate for popular panel lights as well as 45” to 85” monitors that it supports either horizontally or vertically, so it is handy when creating content for mobile mediums and vertical advertisement aspect ratios. Built for low clearance, Panel Stand’s main column can be adjusted and lowered at the leg base while its shallow wheelbase facilitates rolling underneath furniture, vehicles, or other obstacles.
Rugged yet compact, this versatile wheeled carrier also comes equipped with premium Tente® caster wheels, pins to hang a door rack for truck storage, a 1-1/8″ Junior receiver, a 5/8″ Baby pin, and a built-in ergonomically balanced carrying handle for transport. The tough black powder coat finish provides a professional look that blends in well on set.
The Panel Stand is ready for action in a moment, then quickly folds up tight, ready for its next use.
Like their full complement of industry leading stands and other equipment, Panel Stand is available through Matthews Studio Equipment dealers. For more information visit www.msegrip.com
