Cinema Vibration Isolator

Mounting camera stabilizer gimbals to vehicles has proven difficult because of vibrations caused by tires, engines, rotor blades, or any other moving parts. Also, jerky movements of the vehicle can put huge amounts of stress on the gimbals bearings. The Cinema Vibration Isolator addresses these problems by supporting the gimbal with flexible wire rope modules.  It is designed to isolate the upper mounting plate from vibration, and allow the gimbal to smooth out the lower frequency movements that the CVI does not remove. 


If a gimbal is hard-mounted to a vehicle, the cameras mass and inertia will fight against the vehicles movement. This creates huge amounts of torsion on the gimbal and can quickly cause damage, especially while on bumpy roads. The CVI allows the gimbal to move around relative to the vehicle, and thus absorb torsional force. 


The CVI can be customized to hold multiple payload sizes ranging in weight from 4-13 lbs This is achieved by adding or removing wire rope modules. 

  • 3 wire rope modules - 4-7 lbs
  • 4 wire rope modules - 5-8 lbs
  • 6 wire rope modules - 8-12 lbs
  • For heavier payloads: CVI-XL
