Ikan Corp presents new production equipment and solutions for film/video makers at all levels.
ikan International Corp will be displaying a full spectrum of equipment solutions for motion picture and broadcast production at the 2015 NAB Show. From prosumer to ENG to pro cinema, it’s likely that users of all stripes will discover a production solution that suits their needs this year at the Ikan showcase.
At the annual industry confab held at the Las Vegas Convention Center April 13-16, Ikan will present a 50 x 50-foot booth — its largest ever — with an array of equipment pods that span the continuum of user segments. The “Just Add Camera” vignettes will feature production setups custom-designed for corporate and institutional venues, budget and high-end studios, news gathering, documentaries, indie film, and new media. With help from a full complement of knowledgeable Ikan staffers, NAB attendees have the opportunity to get ‘up-close and hands-on’ with all the products. The Ikan booth is located in the Central Hall, number C6537.
Making its debut at NAB 2015 will be Ikan’s newest production monitor, the 8.9 inch VX9i, featuring dazzling imagery generated by an IPS LCD panel with 1920×1200 resolution. The monitor is also configured with waveform as the VX9w. Other new products on demo include Ikan’s Piatto Lights, LED Ring Light, White Star Fresnels, the very popular Fly-X3-PLUS handheld gimbal stabilizer for Smartphones and GoPro cameras, the lightweight and flexible ELE-ENG shoulder rig support system, five new teleprompters designed for use in the field and small studios, and more.
Joining Ikan in its booth this year will be representatives of Tilta Technology, maker of the popular camera rigs and cage systems for which Ikan is the exclusive North American distributor. In addition to showing its “armed” cage systems for the Sony FS7 and a7S cameras, Tilta will introduce the TMax line, which includes its new wireless follow-focus, EVF (electronic view finder) and “Armor Man,” a remarkable gimbal stabilizer system worn by the camera operator.
