Las Vegas, NV, NAB Booth # C12033 -- (April 11, 2011)-- Cinevate debuts their line of Simplis DSLR handheld rigs. The Simplis DSLR Rig is the ideal solution for any filmmaker needing a lightweight, “run and gun” support rig.

To complement the Simplis Rigs, Cinevate also launches its line of mounting accessories called Grip Sticks.
