A Silent Motor with high-speed and an XL Motion Controller make the MS SWIFT the perfect tool for many Filming Tasks

High-Speed, Whisper Quiet and fully controllable

The MS SWIFT has all the advantages of the Multi Slider PRO. In Addition to that, it includes the features below.

High-Speed and Silent Motor

The Top-Speed of the new Brushless DC Motor of the MS SWIFT is 1 m/sec and is therefore ideal for every filming task that requires speed. Moreover the Motor is super silent and perfect for Interviews.

Ball Bearings

The Carriage of the MS SWIFT runs on Ball Bearings for ultra smooth gliding and less noise. Highest stability is guaranteed thanks to industry standard high-end bearings.

SWIFT Motion Control

Control via DMX Protocol and Bluetooth provides full range of controllability and easy integration into existing systems as well as using our Joystick or Pedal solutions.

Carrying made Easy

Just bend the Multi Slider and wrap it around your backpack. Or put it in your suitcase. Easy travelling guaranteed.

Mounting on every Segment

Each segment of the Multi Slider has a 3/8″-16 mounting port on the bottom for tripod mounting to ensure highest stability while filming. The mounting ports are in a distance of about 10 cm.

Straight To Curve? NO Problem!

Allen keys on all segments allow a user-defined adjustment of the system  for even greater precision or for a combination of straight and curved tracks.
