Filmmakers are storytellers, and how they choose to tell a story is conceived as a unique vision. In realizing this vision, creativity and innovation abound.
Over the years Cinevate has been blessed to know many of you in the filmmaking community. Through these relationships, you’ve instilled great insights, which have allowed us a glimpse into your creative minds. Call it insight, or call it plain old feedback, whichever you choose; we’ve poured every ounce of it into Hedron.
The Hedron Slider is the culmination of years of customer input, product research and development. Hedron is a premium slider that delivers smooth slider shots, under extreme payloads, vertically or horizontally, manually or electronically, each and every time. In short, Hedron is one less thing you have to worry about on your shoot.
Along with the Hedron Slider comes an evolved line of add-ons, aimed at expanding the physical possibilities for filmmakers alike. Each new add-on brings a new perspective, through which to convey your vision.
All of us at Cinevate feel honoured to have been included in the storytelling process of so many filmmakers. We’re excited and looking forward to being part of many more.
Really? Another Slider?
Why did we make another slider? Because we wanted to make a better slider. By “better slider”, we mean a slider that’s quieter and smoother than its predecessors; a slider that is lighter yet stronger; a slider that is simple in design and operation, however, able to achieve complex movements with extreme precision.
Made in Cinevate
Hedron was built from the ground up using only proprietary components. This process gave us maximum control over the design and the development of Hedron, which ensured we were delivering the absolute best product.
Heavy Metal Lover
Cinevate’s tradition of producing apocalypse-proof gear has been honoured in Hedron. Solid CNC machined aluminum, reinforced steel drive belts, and stainless steel fasteners are standard fare throughout.
With a 100 lbs weight capacity, Hedron will comfortably support your rig.
Emotion through motion control
Cinevate’s advanced motion control system, Moco, is fully integrated into the design of the Hedron Slider, making it faster and easier to capture timelapse, real time motion and stop motion, with macro precision.
Using the same motor, vertical and angled motion timelapse shots are now possible with rigs up to 25 lbs.
The Fly-Wheel enables consistent and smooth movement, that ramps in and out seamlessly, allowing you to use the start and finish of every shot, every slide.
A Balanced Approach
Vertical, angled, or horizontal slider shots are achieved effortlessly when using the Counterbalance add-on.
Combine this with Moco, and you can shoot that vertical timelapse shot you had in mind, using your camera and rig up to 25lbs.
