Matthews VRig S30 Virtual Reality VR 360 Spherical Camera Support Kit – 64.5” (1.64m) (249566)
Matthews Studio Equipment is proud to announce the introduction of VRig. The industry’s first professional level camera support system for Virtual Reality (VR) production.
Capturing 360 spherical images requires a whole new aesthetic. So why cobble together a support system from parts originally designed for traditional still or motion capture? Well now you no longer have to, VRig was specifically designed to meet the challenges of this new medium.
The S30 Kit is the lightweight option, taking a max payload of 30 lbs.

By their very nature, spherical cameras see everything and are often left unattended amidst the action. They require a strong support system that is unobtrusive on set, and can be easily removed from the shot in post. The VRig is a system specifically designed to have a small footprint to minimize nadir hole and shadow obstruction, yet maintains rock solid stability. Its unique steadiness design with a built-in center Barbell Weight Retainer uses either standard or Olympic plates, and lowers the center of gravity to reduce tipping.
In live event applications, the spherical camera is often positioned front row and center of the action to offer viewers the desired immersive experience. It’s essential that the camera and rigging remain inconspicuous and minimize the obstruction to the live audience. With discretion in mind, the VRig is designed with a slim vertical riser and is equipped with a Black Elastic Leg Skirt allowing ancillary equipment to be concealed from view. Integrated tapped female mounts for lighting fixtures and binaural microphones are also included to help address the rigging challenges of a spherical environment while still remaining inconspicuous.
Matthews’ half century of designing grip equipment is evident in the VRig robust and modular system design. Its aluminum construction includes features like a rocky mountain leg, brass riser locks and an integrated handle for quick relocation. The system can also be reconfigured as a low-angle mount for a car, tabletop, window, lawn, etc. and its ¼”-20, 3/8”, Baby and Junior Pin interfaces integrate seamlessly with standard grip equipment to allow the creation of custom built rigging.
