Via ikan press:
HOUSTON, Texas, (Apr. 11, 2016) — At the 2016 NAB Show held at the Las Vegas Convention Center April 16-21, Ikan International Corp will present their full line of 4K compatible monitors. At Ikan’s booth (C9911), NAB attendees will see firsthand the quality and attention to detail given in constructing these well-known monitors. New this year, Ikan will be debuting a full line-up of 4K compatible monitors including their highly sought after DH7, a new version of the DH5 called the DH5e which includes a touchscreen, and a completely new model called the VXF7.
The DH5e is a newly released camera field monitor, now with Ultra HD 4K HDMI capabilities. It is outfitted with 1920 X 1080 HD resolution and enables the video professional to deliver precision shots, as well as access the features through a new touchscreen. The DH5e comes loaded with tons of value, making it the ideal choice for lightweight rigs and cameras. This monitor is equipped with all of the necessary software features to create the perfect shot: false color, peaking, zooming, guides as well as histogram and audio meters. It also features image flip so you can adjust the 5″ monitor according to your needs. It’s incredibly easy to set your HDMI input and output signals on the DH5e. This small, lightweight design is perfect for handheld rigs and delivers breathtaking image quality within a small, affordable package!
The Ikan DH7 Full HD monitor also features 4K HDMI capabilities with 1920 x 1080 HD resolution and combined with an IPS screen that delivers vibrant color and strong viewing angles. It can handle 4K signals from the most popular 4K HDMI cameras and offers two programmable feature buttons. It’s no surprise the DH7’s simple, practical design makes it the ideal size and weight for field production. The DH7 supports HDMI input/output signals up to 3840×2160 video resolution and offers 1:1 pixel mapping and peaking to ensure everything stays in sharp focus. This monitor truly is the perfect companion for the shooter on the go.
Lastly, NAB attendees will be the first to see the just released VXF7 which is the newest monitor to the VX7c family, but now with 4K capabilities and a full HD panel. Product Manager, Dariel Resendez says, “I am extremely happy to be introducing Ikan’s most advanced line-up of monitors yet. At NAB, we will have at least 4 new monitors that are 4K compatible as well as a few that support 3D LUTs and other industry leading features. No matter what camera you are shooting with, Ikan has a monitor that will help you get the perfect shot.”
