New NiSi Circular Polarizers for Matte Boxes from Ikan at NAB 2017

HOUSTON, Texas, (April 17, 2017) — At this year’s NAB Show held at the Las Vegas Convention Center from April 24-27, Ikan has introduced a new NiSi Circular Polarizer for matte box trays that are available in two sizes: the NIC-4565-CPL (4 x 5.65 inches) and the NIC-66-CPL (6.6 x 6.6 inches).

Made out of high quality optical glass and Nitto polarizing film, the NiSi Circular Polarizer can effectively prevent reflections on the surface from non-metallic or polarized light. By using the NiSi Circular Polarizer, you’re able to see the real color of objects, highlight the texture, and get an improved color saturation and color tone in the sky.

Designed with a filter clip dial that can turn the polarizer, you can easily adjust the polarizer to an optimal spot. This feature greatly improves the effectiveness and efficiency for anyone with time-sensitive shoots, making it a very useful accessory for any videographer, photographer, or cinematographer.

Users of the NiSi Circular Polarizer don’t have to worry about changes in weather and the environment while shooting. With a double-sided waterproof coating, NiSi Circular Polarizers can work even if it’s raining. Once water hits the filter, the water will drop off and leave no trace on the polarizer. The waterproof coating ensures that you get a clean and clear picture. With the filter’s sides sealed, it can effectively prevent moisture from entering.

“I love the simplicity of using a NiSi CPL on run-and-gun shoots. I can dial in my polarizer without having to put my camera down. That way I’m always ready for whatever is in front of my lens,” says Macon Leiper, Product Manager.
