The ikan VX17e is a variable format, full-screen, portable, 17” monitor with 1440 x 900 native resolution. It comes loaded with pro features without compromise.



Equipped with HD-SDI , HDMI, YPbPr, Y/C, Composite inputs and outputs, the VX17e gives you multi-resolution and frame rate compatibility, including DSLR Scaling for enlarging the lower resolution output from your DSLR.











Broadcast evaluation features include False Color, Peaking, Clip Guides, and on-screen, three-color (red, yellow, green) Tally Display, along with a clean signal loop-through you can send to your director or editor’s tent.










The heavy-duty metal construction includes built-in handles and adjustable rack ears for easy carrying and mounting in your studio or in the field. For use in the field, just grab the YK17 and mount it on a C-stand, but don’t forget to grab a hood (SH17) if you’re shooting in bright sunlight. As an additional option, you can mount the VX17e using the included table stand and plug into the DVI input for use with your editing suite.













To give you true flexibility and mobility, we included multiple power options. The VX17e can be powered from 12-20 Volts DC via 4-pin XLR or with the included AC adapter. For more mobility, use the three sets of 100 x 100mm VESA mounting holes on the rear panel for pro battery plates to keep you shooting all day long in the remotest of locations.

    Ikan monitors are equipped with Monochrome Peaking features which highlight the desired focus area in a bright, red outline. The operator adjusts the focus control until the red indicator outlines on the desired area are razor sharp, indicating optimal focus. For the best results, be sure the subject is properly exposed.

    False Color

    The False Color feature utilizes a full spectrum of assigned color indicators, ensuring flawless shot exposure. The under/ over luminance warning enables the video professional to get the quality he/ she desires every time. By adjusting the camera’s Iris, the subject of the image will change color based on specific brightness values indicating optimal exposure.

    Movable pixel to pixel

    The 1:1 pixel-to-pixel mapping allows the video professional to emphasize on individual chosen elements in the shot. This feature is essential for capturing optimum detail.

    Clip Guides

    Ikan offers adjustable upper Clip Guide levels to accurately display overexposed images in any shooting condition. The operator simply assigns the upper IRE to their preference and any exposure over the set IRE limit will flash in a vivid purple, indicating only the over exposed area.

    DSLR Scaling

    The DSLR Scaling function enables users to extend their DSLR camera’s HDMI video output to any option of four: Normal, 3:2, 16:9 or Full Screen – convenience made simple.


    Underscan constrains the size of your image so the monitor shows everything the camera is seeing.
