Ikan introduces MR7 field monitor/recorder
Ikan announces the MR7 HD field monitor. With built-in H.264 recording abilities for instant playback, optional wireless transmitter and handheld rig, it untethers the director and set-heads from the camera, eliminating those awkward over-the-shoulder moments of checking the shot. View 2K footage via 3G-SDI inHD with a 170 degree viewing angle. Analyze the 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.
