4 X 5.65 compact matte box.

A fusion of clamp-on, rod mount & swing-away,
Viv is a lightweight hybrid with an impressive
field of view. Combining adjustable flags with
revolutionary filter stages, Viv contains all the
features you'll ever need in a matte box.

Stack cassette technology.

1, 2, 3, expandable filter stages.

Undo the screws, remove the back, and insert
another filter tray. It's that simple. No costly
cassettes to buy. No time wasted changing
back plates.

Viv - Matte Box - Mattebox - Stack Cassette Technology


Revolutionary filter stages.

As well as being removable, the 2nd and 3rd stages
rotate through 360 degrees. And of course, you can
rotate a round filter in our donuts.

Smaller and lighter.

It's better to be compact.

Beyond being a studio matte box, Viv is flexible
enough to transform in to a lightweight clamp-on.
Light enough to take to any location, and small
enough to manoeuvre in any space.

Quick release.

Swing away to clamp-on in seconds.

With the addition of the lightweight arm, Viv
becomes a fully functioning studio matte box.

Once attached the arm can be removed in seconds.
Simply release the lock, slide the matte box off the
arm, and you're ready to go in clamp on mode.

Swing away slide core.

Faster lens changes.

Viv is able to slide forward and swing
away in an effortless motion to make lens
changes quick and simple, giving you
more time to focus on what's important.

Adjustable lightweight flags.

Superior light control.

Our matte boxes aren't just filter holders.
Protecting your lens from stray light improves
contrast and resolution. The carbon fibre blades
are fixed to light alloy axles that stay with the
flag. Remove the flag, remove the weight.

Incredibly robust.

A step up in strength.

Viv is engineered to achieve an incredibly high
strength to weight ratio. Combining a rock solid
carbon fibre core with sophisticated hard anodised
alloys, Viv is extremely tough and built to last.

We stand by our products, and on them.

Adjustable glide rail.

A mounting point with a difference.

A feather light floating hole. The 3/8" mounting point
means you can attach a small LED light, a monitor or
best of all, a Cinetape for tracking distance. Simply
twist, slide and place it wherever you want, or remove it
in seconds.

Self servicing.

It just got easy.

Normal filter stages get clogged up. Thanks to
our Stack Cassette Technology, trapped debris
and lubrication are now a thing of the past.

Servicing only takes a few minutes.
You're done with just the swipe of a brush.

Vertical rise

Everything lines up nicely

There are many great new accessories out there,
but sometimes things don’t line up.

Our vertical height adjustment system allows
you 12.5mm of movement. Meaning whatever
accessories you use, your matte box works.

Swing away up to 12.5mm (tool less)
Rod bracket up to 10.5mm

Wider field of view.

It's what we do best.

Cover lenses as wide as a 14mm Cooke S4, and still
use 3 filter stages. Use RED Pro Zooms at 5K.

Vignettes are a thing of the past.

What are boundaries for?

At Bright Tangerine, we believe they are there to be pushed.
And we design for those who push them.  

Viv is a hybrid matte box. Designed for all situations it can be a clamp-on, rod mount, or swing-away making it uniquely flexible. Use swing-away for larger setups, then quickly switch to lightweight clamp-on mode for Steadicam or handheld. Use 3-stage if you need a lot of filters, or 2-stage to maximize field of view. Filter stages rotate through 360 degrees so you can set your ND grads in the right position, or adjust your polarizer to the perfect angle. Remote and dusty locations aren’t a problem as dust and dirt can be easily removed without special tools.

Use the French Flag mount for additional light control, or the adjustable glide rail to mount a Cinetape. With fully adjustable flags you can get the best out of your lenses by protecting them from stray light. Built from incredibly strong materials, Viv is designed for serious shoots.
