At NAB 2016, we talked with Ryan at the Triad-Orbit booth. Triad-Orbit makes an ecosystem of premium stands for lights, microphones, and most other production equipment. If you’re investing for the long-term, Triad-Orbit stands and accessories are worth a look.
Special thanks to Scott Vanderbilt who was kind enough to bring his brand new Sony FS5 camera to film this series and schlep it around most of the Las Vegas convention center - no small feat.
