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. Cinema Vibration Isolators addresses these problems by supporting the gimbal with flexible wire rope modules. It is designed to isolate the upper mounting plate from vibration, and move freely relative to the vehicle, thus absorbing torsional force.
The CVI-Underslung allows for the gimbal to be mounted on the bottom of the isolator. The CVI-U can also be converted for upright use (for payloads under 11Lbs/5kg) by simply removing the standoffs and swapping out the lower ring plate with the upper mounting plate.

The CVI-U Quick mount makes it easy to turn any vehicle into a chase car within minutes. It uses two vacuum cups and a nylon strap to secure the isolator in place. Simply stick the vacuum cups on any door, hatch, side panel or tail gate, and attach the nylon strap to the roof rack or any secure fixture.
The system also offers 150mm of Z-axis (up and down) damping for additional smoothness. This is achieved with silicone gel links in series with the nylon straps. Silicone links can be added/removed to adjust stiffness.
