Ikan notes their 2.5 inch V2500 monitor is not only their smallest (and cheapest) LCD, itís also their most versatile. The unit features both audio and video connections along with a built-in stand for tabletop use. "The V2500 is so small and light you can stick it anywhere video monitoring is needed,Ē says ikanís Kan Yeung.
The V7000 ($349) is a 7-inch widescreen monitor (antiglare TFT display) for mounting onto cameras for field or studio use. It features horizontal and vertical display flipping to accommodate various mounting positions, a single connector disconnect for quick setups and strikes, and a switchable aspect ratio for 16:9 and 4:3. The monitor is compatible with NTSC or PAL.
On the WEVA Trade Show floor, ikan also displayed their new line of fluorescent lights, which includes eight fixtures ranging from a 110 watt two-tube model ($799) to a 12-tube 660 watt fixture ($1,699). Click Here!
All units use an economical 55 watt biax tube available in tungsten and daylight color balances. Each fixture is equipped with a dimmable, flicker-free ballast and onboard dimming controls, along with a four-way barn door intensifier system.
The two and four tube models are available in two configurations, either a stacked array for maximum light output or in a strip for low clearance installations. For larger studio applications the DMX-512 (dimming control unit) is also available as an accessory.
