The Limited Old Tripod System offers... The Multi-Patented MYT Quatripod sytem...
In most current designs, the legs are set at a 120-degree angle from one another. This is a nearly universal standard with a set range that is extremely limiting.
In telescoping systems, mostly used in still photography, a latch at the base can offer up to three angled positions in each leg: a slight angle for an upright position, one close to 45-degrees, and an obtuse one that allows the tripod to be close to the ground. However, there is still no capacity for adjustment beyond these fixed positions.
In traditional tripods, the angle is controlled by a spreader located in-between the legs at mid-level. This circumstance limits range and does not allow for low shots. It is possible to remove the spreaders in order to use the tripod on uneven terrain. This configuration, however, is very difficult to control as each leg moves freely since they are now mounted as free-standing rods. Lower heights can only be attained by using baby legs of hi-hats.
The tripod height is inherently limited to the height of the legs (which rarely exceeds 80").
In order for the camera head to be mounted with stability and security, the base needs to be set up level.
The adjustment of one leg angle in relation to another, no matter how minimal, can only be accomplished by releasing the spreader and/or securing each leg independently.
Traditional tripods cannot be used upside down. Even with adaptors, they cannot be underslung.
Traditional tripods cannot function as a stand-alone hi-hat or with baby legs. Telescoping systems can
do this, but only within the ranges determined by the length to which the legs are extended.
No system is able to seamlessly switch from a tripod to a Glider/Slider setup with a one-latch release system.
Traditional tripods do not allow for unlimited mounting options on the base itself.
The MYT Quatripod, on the other hand, can do all that and a lot more because:
The base can be used as a regular hi-hat base with a one-latch release for a MYT Hi-Hat.
The revolutionary, modular design includes a base with detachable MYT Lip-Locks.
The MYT Lip-Lock is designed with two Rosette rings that lock into position when pressed against one another. Up to 60 positions are available (depending on the number of teeth on the Rosette) in three dimensions, made possible by the MYT Lip-Locks which allow for top, bottom, and rotational motion.
The knee joint features eight to sixteen holes that can be positioned on a fixed dowel pin, which allows for lateral and horizontal positioning of the legs.
The combination of the Rosette and the dowel pin with guide holes allows for unlimited combinations of angles for the legs, which are now capable of shifting independently from one another.
Revolutionary new design that allows adjustment of leg height by simply releasing the latch on the MYT Lip-Lock. This is the first system that allows the legs to pass through the knee joint.
The design allows for a secondary pass through hole that provides underslung capabilities in addition to square-legs set-up by allowing legs to go through the base in a vertical position.
The system allows for horizontal mounting of the legs and for pass-through as well.
The system can be utilized with either three or four legs, hence the name. It can be implemented as a Tripod, a Quadpod, or even as a Pentapod.
While utilizing the system with the four leg setup, there is no weak tipping angle.
The MYT system is entirely modular, meaning that the leg height is adjustable to any length, be it long or short. The MYT Legs are stack-able, screw-able, lock-able, and ratchet-able.
Unlimited mounting options for camera accessories are available on the base itself, with a galaxy of ½ 13", 3/8", and ¼ 20"'s.
The base plate design allows for Tripod, Quadpod, and multi-pod configurations.
All in all, you are offered a set of unique features not found anywhere else in the world with application potential in the film industry and a number of other fields.
