Burbank, California –Matthews Studio Equipment, manufacturer of specialized support for the entertainment industry will debut five new products at Broadcast Asia 2013, Booth #4G1-01. Known for discovering and nurturing unique specialized hardware, camera and lighting support – like Matthews Max Menace Arm, which recently won inventor Key Grip Richard Mall an Academy Award, MSE plans to introduce five new products: Technology that Complements Your Imagination.
The Makalu System is a unique remote head package designed for live action, time lapse, visual effects, cinematography and videography. What makes this remote head different is the user interface, which is a multi-axis jog box with a professional joystick connected via WiFi to an iPad Mini, iPad 2&3 or iphone. “We are excited about our new partnership with MotionPeak, creator of the Makalu System,” says Robert Kulesh, V.P. Sales and Marketing for MSE. “The system gives the user the ability to connect to a Mac running the accompanying eSpinO software, allowing for endless programming and tweaking of motion control camera moves.”
