Quiet

The Patented Silent Cat™ Camera Sliders allow sound recording to occur in any circumstance. We manufacture every component of our wheel bearing assemblies and track extrusions. Our custom axle and wheel design in conjunction with a single radial bearing packed with our own grease/fill specifications ensures a superior level of quality and consistency with these components. Our track extrusions are produced from our own die and design which gives us ultimate control to assure that the Silent CatTM Camera Sliders remain the quietest ride in the Motion Picture industry. Tom Hollman, Local 52 Sound Mixer “The other sliders say they’re quiet, The Silent Cat™ is!”

Resistance

The Silent Cat™ Camera Slider is the first and only camera slider with a true resistance mechanism for the trolley. This feature allows the operator to adjust the resistance on the slider to match the resistance on a fluid camera head as desired.

True Resistance Mechanism

Soft Stop Dampeners

THE SOFT STOP PLUNGER SYSTEM incorporates the repelling polarity of magnets with our traditional dampeners to provide a soft stop when the operator approaches the end of the Silent Cat™ Camera Slider or one of the start/stop blocks.


Over-Under Slung Feature

The Over/Under Silent Mitchell Mount Trolley is the most advanced and unique mounting system of this genre. Its exclusive design enables the user to switch from top mount to under slung, requiring no tools.


Adjustable Mounting Positions

The New Light Weight Perimeter Tubular Structure is mounted to a newly designed 360 Degree Mitchell Mount Pan Mechanism. Most unique is that the mounting pattern of this mechanism and the construction of The New Light Weight Perimeter Tubular Structure allow The 360 Degree Pan Mechanism to be mounted anywhere on the patented Silent Cat™ Camera Slider. This allows the Silent Cat™ Camera Slider to be canter levered, center mounted, and mounted virtually any position over the length of the Silent Cat™. The Silent Cat™ Camera Slider can also be inverted and mounted to any under slung Mitchell Mount.


Trolley Brake

The Over Under Silent Mitchell Mount Trolley has an easily accessible brake that is solid.


Pan Brake

The Pan Brake is solid and can be locked at any position on the Pan Mechanism without regard to gears lining up and changing the desired pan position.
