MAT-TOWERCAM ® TWIN PEEK 5000

MAT-TOWERCAM ® TWIN PEEK 5000

We created and started manufacturing the telescoping, original MAT-TOWERCAM® column in 2003 – an innovation for the DoPs worldwide. With the MAT-TOWERCAM® we offered brand new perspectives, which were infeasible before. We took the camera to places where no crane would ever be able to go.

For the concept and development of the MAT-TOWERCAM® TWIN PEEK we were honored 2015 in Los Angeles with a SCI-TECH ACADEMY AWARD® (Technical Achievement Award) and subsequently triggered an unbelievable boom. Today, TOWERCAM is the official term and definition for a telescopic camera column – a complete new genre in the branch created by MAT: an icon, used and followed by many lovers. If you want a smooth and steady, fast or slow, high or low shot, just the best camera position or a fluent move – then stay with THE ORIGINAL! We are proud of our successful idea and as an influencer our ongoing mission calls for: new horizons, new ideas, new inventions!

CUSTOMIZE YOUR MAT-TOWERCAM® TWIN PEEK

The MAT-TOWERCAM® TWIN PEEK can be operated in both orientations (upright or inverted) by using a handset or foot pedal – with a top ascension or descending speed of approx. 3,00 ft per second. A digital, computer-assisted mode is also available. When switched to this mode, it is possible to store and recall variable positions. The actual position can be detected by an additional encoder.

This makes the system very precise and also allows for the implementation in a virtual / augmented environment. MAT-TOWERCAM® TWIN PEEK can be controlled from up to 1.500 ft away from the initial setup, has a short setup time and comes in customized sizes and colors.

UPRIGHT VERSIONS: EVERY SIZE YOU WANT.

YES, WE HAVE IT

The ACADEMY OF MOTION PICTURE ARTS AND SCIENCES© decided to bestow a TECHNICAL ACHIEVEMENT AWARD to Peter Braun for the concept and development of the MAT-TOWERCAM® TWIN PEEK.

The ACADEMY: “This small cross-section system from MAT – MAD ABOUT TECHNOLOGY can operate from above or below the camera, achieving nearly impossible shots with repeatable movements through openings no larger than the camera itself.”
