EasySlate comes with two double sided, lightweight, heavy duty, 6" X 9" dry erase cards (the EasySlate Production Slate and the EasySlate Interview Slate) consisting of three slate templates that can be easily written on with dry erase markers. Because the writing surface of EasySLATE is made from state-of-the-art polymers, clean up is easy. The fourth template (backside of the production slate) contains a Back Focus Chart.

EasySlate Production Slate - Side 1
Modeled after traditional slates, this slate has fields useful for shooting scripted scenes. Great for Independent films, or "run & gun" style documentary shooting when budget counts and in the field ease of use is a must. Don't sacrifice your workflow, just because you are in a hurry. A few extra minutes in the field slating can save you hours in the edit.

EasySlate Productin Slate - Side 2 - Back Focus Chart.
Ensuring critical back focus is crucial for today's high definition cameras. This easy to use Back Focus Chart is a valuable tool that will help you set your camera's back focus.

EasySlate Interview Slate - Side 1
This Slate was designed for slating interviews, and has fields for documenting the most commonly needed information for post-production or future reference. Don't waste your time in post-production looking for proper spellings and titles of interviewees. Slate it on-site and confidently move on knowing that it can be recalled in post production as easily as the interview you are shooting.

EasySlate Interview Slate - Side 2 - Notes
Production situations vary, so can the information needed for slating. That's why we have included a large notes section for recording information specific to your shooting situation. This section is a useful area for documenting shooting conditions, type of camera used, FPS, picture profiles, changes made to default styles, "best take" indications, messages to the editor, and shooter contact information. It's up to you how this is used. The surface of EasySLATE is made with state of the art polymers that can be wiped clean with the eraser end of the dry erase markers included, or with a soft cloth. Regular maintenance cleaning is quick and easy with alcohol swabs also included in the starter kit.

The EasySlate system comes packaged in a custom 10.5" X 7.5" compact, black, texturized nylon bag with loop handle complete with individual slate dividers and pockets for markers, swabs, and cleaning cloth.
