Are you filming in 4K? Even if you aren’t, you might as well be prepared for it. As everything starts moving towards 4K, you’ll need to invest in equipment that is compatible with it. Once display equipment, such as your TVs and projectors, catch up to cameras and other equipment used to capture footage, you’ll want to have everything that you need for 4K.

At Ikan, we have products that can support 4K and 6K filmmaking. When you have the right equipment, you have the right tools for the job.

4K Compatible Camera Monitors

We have a complete line of 4K compatible camera monitors that will support your filmmaking. Even if you’re not shooting in 4K and only shooting in HD, it’s better to have more room to work with than having a cap on what you need. Our 4K compatible monitor line includes:

VL35 – Our smallest 4K compatible monitor proves that big things can come in small packages. Its 3.5” display can handle 4K and Ultra HD footage and can also help you focus with a Pixel-to-Pixel mode.

DH5e – Our 5” lightweight monitor is a great follow-up to the popular DH5. With 4K and Ultra HD support, the DH5e also has an intuitive touch screen that allows for “pinch to zoom” pixel to pixel.

DH7 – This 4K compatible monitor is 7” and has an HD resolution of 1920×1200 combined with an IPS screen that delivers vibrant color and strong viewing angles.

VXF7 – Looking for a professional monitor with a full HD+ 1920 x 1200 IPS LCD panel and 4K support? The VXF7 has all that plus it comes with standard features such as zooming, focus peaking, pixel-to-pixel mapping, false color, and more.

NiSi Filters – 6K Filmmaking

When you’re using high quality filters, you won’t even be able to notice that your filter is there. With our line of NiSi filters, you can apply a filter on anything that you shoot up to 6K. These filters have the right qualities to resolve the image properly. All the NiSi filters are cut with precision, polished, optically processed, and tested to strictly control the flatness and high parallelism of the glass surface in order to produce the highest quality glass and digital cinema image. The optical nano coating also allows the NiSi filters to tightly control color, reflection, and density, which helps alleviate solar glare. You can choose between three different types of NiSi filters: IRND, graduated, or polarizing filters. Since they are high end filters, you won’t have to buy a filter every year and it’ll be a long term investment. If you treat these filters right, they will last a long time. Of course, to utilize these filters in the best way, remember to have a matte box.
