Rock-Solid Multi-Stage Leveled Camera Platform For Checkout Bays

With its unique structural design, the MYT Works Camera Pedestal represents a radical departure from the traditional, single-column pedestal design. The Pedestal can be configured with three, four or five legs of any length to insure a rock-solid platform that takes up minimal floor space. Each leg passes through their clamps allowing the height to be adjusted on the fly. It can even be mounted “underslung” to the ceiling, clearing the floor entirely and providing better access to equipment around the camera.

Camera Pedestal Structure

Unlike a traditional Pedestal Column structure, our Camera Pedestal’s unique design features 4 independent legs which can be set at any desired height. The 4-leg-design allows for an extremely rigid and leveled surface.

Multiple Attachment Points

The Pedestal upper-plate doubles as a working area around the camera setup. It is also fitted with numerous 1/4 20 and 3/8 threads to mount monitors, accessories and/or any support all around the plate.

Extension Arms

The MYT Pedestal extension arm can be mounted on any one of the legs to support ether 1 inch and 1/4 rods or our 1/2 13 rods. They can be used for lights, monitors and/or any accessory needed for your project.

Base Flange

The 4 Pedestal legs are secured via 4 base flanges on the floor. Lateral bolts hold the Pedestal in place for easy removal if needed. Four countersunk holes allow for all types of bolts and screws to be used to secure the Pedestal. One recommended option for hard floors including concrete is to use anchored steel inserts and 1/4 20 bolts. This option allows the base flange to be removed from the floor when the pedestal needs to be moved temporarily.

Hi-Hat Configuration

The pedestal can accept our Hi-Hat fitted with either a Mitchell, 150/100/75 mm mount. The system comes with four 1-inch rods but can be switched for longer rods. Locking bolts secure the Hi-Hat, which can be easily removed by simply unthreading the bolts. This feature is helpful with putting any mount on the Pedestals and removing the camera and head without taking the whole setup apart.

Dovetail Plate Mounting

Compounded with its unique capabilities in handling a removable Hi-Hat, the MYT Pedestal can also support a Dovetail Plate mounted directly onto the upper plate. This option allows mounting a camera or projector directly, and is particularly helpful for environments where multiple uses of the pedestal are needed.

Dovetail Plate on Half Ball Adapter

With the addition of our half ball adapter, a Dovetail plate can be mounted on the Hi-Hat and bypass the use of a tripod head. This configuration is particularly helpful when a head is not available. In this configuration, the camera must be adjusted and leveled every time.

Working Sliding Platform

Located on the side facing the camera, the sliding platform, made of solid wood, can be used to set any accessory on its surface. It was intentionally designed to support a laptop. Once closed a laptop can be stowed away under the upper plate.

Sliding Utility Drawer

A solid walnut wood drawer, the drawer can be mounted under any of the plates on the Pedestal, including the top one. It is designed to store tools and accessories.

Numerous Storing Options

The MYT Pedestal can support more than one intermediate plate for a wood tray and/or any additional equipment needed around the pedestal. A third plate near the floor is often used to support power supplies and batteries.

Adjustable Tray

Similar to a camera box, this adjustable swinging tray can be mounted on any of the 4 legs at any height. The camera operator or assistant can use it in close proximity of the camera and/or lens in the same way that they would on a film set.

Second Stage Tray

Made out of solid walnut, the tray snaps securely into place atop any of the sub-plates on the Pedestal. It is particularly useful as a working tray that can be removed in and out at a moment's notice.
