I have run a small batch of black anodized aluminum, Preston Single Channel Cheeseplates. The cheeseplate screws onto the back of the handset using the existing mounting holes. You will need longer screws (supplied by me) and after mounted to the handset the cheeseplate offers many 1/4-20" and 3/8-16" threaded mounting holes on the top, bottom and back of the handset, creating endless cart mounting possibilities.
The cheese plate was designed to create solutions for hard mounting multiple single channel handsets to a monitor cart to avoid handsets hitting the ground while moving the cart. The productions that I work on tend to have multiple single channel handsets at the DIT cart, one for each cameras iris control, I know this is quite common in other parts of North America too.
I think DIT's will benefit from this product, keeping a very organized cart with all single channel handsets mounted and presented in an organized fashion. FIZ owners will benefit by supplying a means (the cheese plate) of ensuring their $4500 handset isn't just sitting on top of a monitor cart amongst the scripts and coffee cups, instead mounted to the cart in a rock solid way.
Mounting the handsets could be done with cinelocks and noga arms or Ultralight monitor arm components for quick removal and endless articulation, and I know there will be as many ways to mount them as there are members of this forum.
I'm selling these Preston Single Channel Cheeseplates for $150 Canadian each plus shipping. I currently have 10 of them left after selling to some friends here in Vancouver, Canada, and will be ordering more once I see how much interest there might be. Feel free to email me if you're interested.
Thanks for reading!
