The Intel-A-Jib is a unique modular jib arm system manufactured using the latest techniques, processes and equipment, resulting in superior quality. Among the many features that differentiate the Intel-A-Jib from the competition is the one-piece X-Box Extrusion modular beam. This design element offers superior anti-deflection and anti-distortion of the arm. The Intel-A-Jib sets up in less than two minutes without any tools due to the innovative V-Lock component connector system. With extensions of either 10 or 6 feet in length, the Intel-A-Jib can accept virtually any camera package, expanding great image making creativity.

The Intel-A-Jib uses the internationally accepted Mitchell Mounting System to interface with the supporting tripod system and for camera mounting.

We also carry many accessories designed to expand the jib arm's capability and functionality. Mounting the Intel-A-Jib to Matthews MT-1 Heavy-Duty Tripod and the DL-7 Dolly (sold separately) allows the operator to quickly and easily position the fixture, thereby ensuring many more opportunities to capture that 'perfect' shot. We think you'll be impressed!

The Matthews MT-1 Tripod System (part number 812170) is the strongest and most stable location, broadcast camera support system available in the industry. The MT-1 is a "heavyweight" system that weighs over 24 pounds and is made of castings that are machined to close tolerances. This system will support camera packages up to 265 Lbs. Nearly every sports remote broadcast, including auto racing, baseball, football, and wrestling depend on the MT-1 for the firm, stable platform required for "whip" pans and other rapid camera movements with no tripod, jitter, twist or swaying. And now, the MT1 uses brass brakes that maintain a secure locking system. 

From archery to the X Games, the Matthews MT-1 tripod system provides a very strong and robust support system. There are different types of feet to ensure a firm footing for the system: steel spikes for soft ground or tarmac; and wide, non slip rubber feet for hard surfaces to ensure system stability and non-creeping during the operation. 

In studio the MT1 uses the Matthews DL-7 Dolly (Part# 811171) that will allow the camera to transit smoothly across the studio floor. Cable guards are built in and isolate the camera from bumping into the cables on the floor. The MT-1 Tripod system can also be used for supporting jib arms and other devices. By adding a Matthews leveling head the jib arm is guaranteed a straight and level camera move.
