Tether Tools® iPad Wallee Connect Integrates iPad and iPad 2 into Photographer & Filmmaker's Workflow
Scottsdale, ARIZ. (Aug. 2, 2011) - Tether Tools® and The Wallee are partnering on the Tether Tools iPad Wallee Connect. "The Connect" for short, is a mounting system that seamlessly brings the Apple iPad and iPad 2 into the photography and film workflow. This new product integrates a secure way to mount an iPad on a tripod, light stand, SuperClamp, or articulating arm for the first time.
"The Wallee iPad modular case and mount system is a market leader with iPad lovers around the world," said Alon Tamir, president of The Wallee. "We're always on the lookout for other leaders in innovation to extend the utility of our products. Tether Tools brings The Wallee into the professional photography and film industry supplying this important user-group with a quality solution for working with the iPad."
Coupling The Wallee's patented locking X mechanism with the versatility of Tether Tools LAJO-4 ProBracket, The Connect allows the iPad or iPad 2 to safely mount to the most popular photography and cinematography equipment. Once attached with a simple 45-degree twist, the locking mechanism allows for 90-degree turns that change the iPad from landscape to portrait orientation without disconnecting from the bracket or stand. The Wallee case remains on the iPad for use with Wallee's extensive line of mounts and stands.
"The Wallee is a great system for every iPad owner and now with Tether Tools Wallee Connect, it's the ultimate solution for photographers and filmmakers who want to use the iPad as a teleprompter or for tethered shooting, image viewing, editing, presentations and even selling, " said Josh Simons, president of Tether Tools. In addition to offering the iPad Wallee Connect and all Wallee mounts and accessories, Tether Tools is also distributing the complete line of Wallee products.
The Wallee case is meticulously designed so buttons, speaker, and cameras are always accessible. Photographers tethering wireless, importing with Apple's Camera Connection Kit, or using one of the many photo apps designed for the iPad, can now incorporate the device into their workflow anywhere, anytime.
