VL5e – 5″ HDMI Field Monitor – VIDEO

September 17th, 2015|

  Slim, lightweight and affordable, the VL5e is a 5" ultra-portable, on-camera monitor. Its slender build allows it to fit in any camera bag and, at less than half a pound, is ideal for handheld rigs. But don't mistake its compact size for lack of capacity - it has tons of software features to help you get the images you want. It's small in size, but big on value. Size makes the VL5e ideal for any type of mobile production - perfect for gimbals, handheld rigs, or shoulder rigs. To assist with those outdoor shoots, a sun visor and full sunhood [...]

New Products for NAB 2012 (part 2): D5, VH8

April 10th, 2012|

With most of the information available regarding the D7 covered in the post previous, this post is more dedicated to our other monitors coming out with some images to boot. However, I am going to sprinkle in some D7W photos because I can't stop looking at them! With regards to the D5, our newest and smallest all-digital monitor, much of the same specs and abilities found in the D7 are present, with a smaller form factor. Lightweight and still packed with features, the D5 is another example of ikan's desire to set a new standard with our flagship monitors at [...]

New Monitors for NAB 2012 (part 1): D7 & D7W

April 5th, 2012|

I had the chance to taste the digital-only panels we're going to demo at NAB this year and I think you'll like the results. Starting with the aptly named D7, it's a 7" IPS-based panel viewing in 1280x800 resolution (true 720p). Moving forward, the D series of monitors from ikan (the D5, D7, D7W and D9) will be our new flagship line as we phase out our VX series of HDMI & SDI monitors (though we will still support you). By placing this technology in our latest monitors, we hope to stay on the cutting edge of on-camera monitor options [...]

ikan VX7e + Arri ALEXA

July 29th, 2011|

These are some very kind words from our local friends Blue Ribbon Digital Media. They're one of the few Alexa owners here in H-town and some really tech-savvy and cool guys. “Recently, we had the opportunity to demo the new ikan VX7e 7” HD-SDI monitor. What made this demo unique was that we demoed the ikan VX7e with Blue Ribbon Digital Media’s new ARRI Alexa and Alura 18-80 zoom lens.” “Remarkably, the VX7e held its own with the new powerhouse ARRI digital cinema camera. Not only was it a nice size, light weight, onboard field monitor, but the new features [...]
