OBM Series: Complete Line of 4K Production Monitors

HOUSTON, Texas, (April 17, 2017) — Ikan and Postium announced earlier this year that they were teaming up to create a feature-rich line of 4K production monitors. In addition to the two monitors announced previously, there are now two additional monitors to add to the lineup. Ikan will have the OBM series of monitors at their booth at the NAB Show this year held at the Las Vegas Convention Center from April 24-27.

The two new monitors include the OBM-U310 and OBM-U550L. The OBM-U310 is a 31” native 4K (4096 x 2160) HDR LCD professional monitor. The OBM-U550L is a 55” native Ultra HD 4K HDR professional monitor. The monitors announced previously include the OBM-U170 and OBM-U240 with a 1920 x 1080 10-bit LCD panel and 3840 x 2160 10-bit LCD panel respectively.

All monitors in the OBM series have a SFP Optical interface, allowing users to take advantage of broadcast cameras and switchers that utilize this system. In addition, the OBM monitor series is equipped with a standard 12G-SDI input interface, 3G/HD-SDI input interface, and supports 4K Quad Link 2-Sample interleave signals and 4K Quad Link Square Division signals. The OBM 4K series can display High Dynamic Range (HDR) footage. With the HDR function in these monitors, users can easily view both highlights and shadow detail of scenes simultaneously, resulting in more realistic and natural images.

Features of the OBM monitor series include high resolution waveform and vector scopes, wide color space and 3D-LUT support, focus assist and Zebra, and the ability to adjust the gamma value.

“With the addition of the OBM-U310 and the OBM-U550L, Ikan now has a comprehensive lineup of 4K production monitors. These monitors are packed with the features professionals are looking for like HDR functions, Scopes, 3D LUTs, and much more,” says Dariel Resendez, Product Manager.
