Vortex Media EasySLATE Slating Set


Fastest, easiest, and most convenient professional slating system


The EasySLATE system is the fastest, easiest, and most convenient way to incorporate slating into your production workflow. EasySLATE comes complete with three slates designed to meet all of your shooting needs and includes a handy back focus chart.

How many times have you been frustrated in post-production trying to find the proper spelling or title of someone you interviewed because you didn’t document it on site? Using the Interview slate will allow you or an editor to easily see and verify the information in post-production saving you valuable time and money.

Successful professionals know that slating is an essential production element for scene identification, production notes, or matching shots to a script in post-production. Making it a habit to slate and log your shots while shooting will save you hours in the edit suite.

EasySLATE comes with two double sided, lightweight, heavy duty, 6” X 9” dry erase cards consisting of three slate templates that can be easily written on with dry erase markers, and because the writing surface of EasySLATE is made from state-of-the-art polymers, clean up is easy.

EasySLATE can be wiped clean with either the eraser end of the dry erase markers or with a soft cloth, all of which are included with the EasySLATE system. Regular cleaning and maintenance is quick and easy.

The lightweight EasySLATE system is packaged in a durable, custom designed black nylon carrying case to allow for easy storage, travel, organization, and protection.
