    RGB Parade

    RGB Parade splits the image into separate red, green, and blue channels. It is useful for viewing the distribution of the color components in a clip. It’s fundamental in balancing out the shadow region when leveling a shot. It also helps the video professional instantly see what the color cast might be in the image, thus making it helpful when verifying the white balance.

    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.
