The Zacuto Horizontal Zwiss Plate for Mounting Accessories to Your Rig will let you add multiple accessories and devices to your camera rig, accessories such as an articulating arm, and devices such as an AJA Ki Pro Mini recorder, an audio receiver or transmitter, or a V-mount or 3-stud battery plate. And you can attach multiple of these at the same time.
The plate is a combination of a standard Zwiss Plate and a MiniMount Rod-Mount. The standard normally mounts a rig vertically. The addition of the MiniMount lets you mount horizontally. You can switch between vertical and horizontal at anytime simply by removing or connecting the MiniMount. In either way, you would mount the plate onto any two 15mm rods of your rig. And either way you get numerous 1/4"-20, 3/8"-16 and 10/32" screw-holes to attach accessories and devices to.
You also get a total of six 15mm rod openings. Two are on the MiniMount. Four are each on one corner of the plate. Two of these four are what you would attach the plate vertically by. And otherwise, into any one of the four you can attach a Zacuto Zamerican Articulating Arm, which unlike other articulating arms attaches by a 15mm rod-tip. You can likewise attach any 15mm rod accessory to one of these four.
The example devices mentioned above, the Ki Pro, the battery plates, and the receiver and transmitter, are the most common ones to mount. For the Ki Pro and battery plates, a set of mounting screws comes included. What's more, if you attach the plate vertically onto your rig, you can mount both the Ki Pro and a battery plate at the same time, with one on the front and one on the back. As for mounting the receiver and transmitter, the best way is via an additional, optional Zacuto component called Wireless Plate Pro, which attaches onto the Zwiss Plate and then a receiver or transmitter conveniently attaches onto it and off of it.
