16x9 Inc. introduces the Cine Lock, a convenient new quick-release mounting device designed to work with all Noga Articulating arms.
The Cine Lock's ingenious design enables fast and easy non-thread mounting and removal of the arm and its cargo through an ingenious dove tail design. The device is made up of two parts, a male and female wedge/dove tail plate. The male plate is fitted onto the top and bottom of a Noga articulating arm. The female piece is attached both to the surface where the arm will be anchored, and onto whatever object the arm will hold. Once all pieces of the device are in place, the arm can easily be mounted onto a camera handle or tripod, for example ﾗ and a monitor or light can easily be mounted onto the arm itself.
Cine Lock is so simple and easy to use, you'll wonder why you didn't pick one up sooner. By sliding the dove-tail to the wedge plates, the unit is locked into place. Simple and easy to use, the Cine Lock speeds up camera set ups and break downs on set by eliminating laborious and time consuming threading. The system mounts quickly and effortlessly onto virtually all 1/4" - 20 and 3/8" threaded female threaded surfaces.
