Fact: 1 in 3 matte boxes can’t read at a 1st-grade level. Fact: matte box illiteracy remains one of the most overlooked issues facing the film/video production industry. Now, what reading-age level black widows and other arachnids are remains unsure; but, as this product attests to, their ability to read numbers and fractions up to one decimal place is making significant strides in this ongoing struggle. 

 

The FRS-Light Matte Box System from Lightwidow is a lightweight matte box with a patent pending filter reading system. Using small RFID sticker tags, It detects the type and position of each inserted filter and displays the information so that the cam op and AC can easily keep track of what is in the matte box.. It also logs filter information to removable memory and / or camera video file for later reference during post-production. 

 

The RFID sticker tags are easily programmable using a phone app. Each filter tag can be programmed to include a custom display name, as well as different background colors and display modes.
