Whaley Rail II

(8 customer reviews)


The Whaley Rail II is a collaborative design between Ben Whaley (667 DIT) & Upgrade Innovations. This system provides DIT’s with a solid lightweight mounting frame to hold multiple production monitors and other accessories.

Designed to integrate with Inovativ Echo without needing holes drilled through the cart deck, the Whaley Rail II can also be mounted to other Inovativ carts, including Scout, Voyager & Apollo models. The Whaley Rail can be built to practically any cart deck, so other camera carts such as Adicam, Magliner & Yaegar among others can be upgraded with this professional monitor mounting frame.

The modular mounting rails eliminate unwanted motion & provide strength and stability, while still allowing for horizontal and vertical adjustments. You can customize your Whaley Rail II to be either a single or double rail system, offering various setup options for monitors and accessories. Both the single rail and double rail systems include two rail clamps to 5/8 baby pin in the base setup. See the Additional Information tab for further details on the available systems.

For a tight location move or for transport, quick release the Whaley Rail II frame from the deck via tool-less levers.

Control height and various frame positions to maximize and respect the length and depth of your cart build. This modular design allows for various options including the Packed and Studio versions and provides build flexibility.

The build flexibility allows for the Whaley Rail components to be easily moved between multiple cart sizes so you can adapt to your project scope. With a few extra components, swap your rail frame to another cart by making use of a different length cross rail. Contact us to discuss this type of modular build!

The Packed and Studio versions have established rail lengths and vertical post heights based on cart model length. Contact us for custom lengths or to mount the Whaley Rail II to a cart not listed.

The Whaley Rail II system is designed to integrate with our popular Ball-Lock Monitor Mounts and Quick Release VESA Plates. The Ball-Lock system is a positive-lock system for rock solid monitor support when static and dynamic forces are at play. Check out the MMS09 VESA Mount, MMS11-MC VESA Mount and the Quick Release VESA Plate.

    If your looking to add monitors to any production cart this is the go to.

  3. Andrew R. (verified owner)

    Excellent design and very sturdy. Flexible mounting options make this work in a variety of on-set scenarios. Easily supports four 25″ OLED monitors

  4. Michael A. (verified owner)

  5. Lee (verified owner)

    The Whaley Rail ll has Supreme build quality with simple and robust design.

  6. Jim Denault, ASC (verified owner)

    The simplicity of the design is the key advantage to this amazing system. No cumbersome articulating arms (unless you want them, I guess). The rail is absolutely rigid; with the support bars there’s no flex at all in the top of my Voyager 30. The system feels like a solid part of the cart. Easily supports my cluster of SmallHD 1703s. With UI’s ingenious QR VESA plates, the monitors hang close to the rail, freeing up the surface of my cart and keeping the CG of the load balanced close to the vertical posts. This is definitely the way to go, whatever cart you are using.

    Great look and finish! The install is a little tricky but just read through a few times and you’re all set!

    • Darrel Voser (store manager)

      Thanks for the feedback! If there’s a certain part of the Voyager assembly instructions that could be clarified, let us know!
