Our friends over at ikan have announced a new HD Field Monitor called the “MR7” – please read the press release below.

ikan Proudly Introduces the MR7— A True Director’s Monitor!

ikan announces the fully equipped MR7 high definition field monitor, packed with features that cannot be found in its price range. With built-in H.264 recording abilities for instant playback, optional wireless transmitter and handheld rig, it will have your director and set-heads salivating untethered from the camera, eliminating those awkward over-the-shoulder moments of checking the shot. View 2K footage via 3G-SDI in high definition the way it should be—with a 170 degree viewing angle. Analyze your camera’s image for color accuracy and intensity on the fly with Waveform and Vectorscope features. Confirm the recorded audio for each take with an internal headphone jack. Expand the MR7 to cover all territories, with ikan’s Dragonfly Support rig and Wireless transmitter, available this summer.
