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.
