The D7w is one of the newest, sturdiest additions to the family of Ikan field monitors. The D7w is a 7” (digital only) on camera field monitor devised for the video professional who utilizes various input types and power options. Its sleek yet durable aluminum construction dissipates heat and greatly enhances the D7w’s longevity. The D7w is equipped with peaking and false color features that the VX series is renown for plus it has an IPS (In-plane switching) panel which puts out vibrant colors and great viewing angles. The D7w’s technological advances give you the features you need at prices you want.
Waveform This essential feature assists with the calibration of professional video cameras. It shows the overall brightness of the image assisting the video professional in correcting exposure. The waveform feature also checks the evenness of the lighting when lighting a chromakey or background. Vectorscope The D7w uses vectorscope to help set and verify skin tones and monitor white balance. The vectorscope function also verifies and checks the overall tint and hue of an image. RGB Parade The RGB parade splits the image into separate red, green, and blue channels and shows you the color values for each. RGB Parade is fundamental in balancing out the shadow region when leveling a shot. Furthermore, this feature helps the video professional to instantly see what color cast might be in an image; thus, making it extremely helpful when verifying the white balance.

Features You Need 1280 X 800 IPS HD PANEL With the D7w’s 7-inch 1280 X 800 IPS HD panel what you see is truly what you get! The IPS HD Panel delivers near perfect viewing angles outputting crisp, clear shots on the field, which means less time in the editing room.

Its solid, roughed design ensures the D7w performs at its best even in the roughest terrains. The D7w’s durable chassis protects the monitor from the element’s and unpredictable weather ensuring the monitor’s reliability and longevity.

Flexible Battery System The D7w has a flexible battery system that supports ikan’s BP5 battery plate of your choice.

ADVANCED SOFTWARE FEATURES The D7w is loaded with advanced software features like false color, peaking, movable pixel-to-pixel and DSLR scaling.

Color Stability and Accuracy for Video Production

Color Stability and Accuracy for Video Production

For any type of professional video editing or post production work, a monitor that accurately displays color to industry standards is an indispensable tool. ColorEdge offers a wide selection of monitors that meet a studio or broadcaster’s needs for both editing and reference monitors. In addition, 3D LUTs can be imported using the bundled ColorNavigator software to emulate filmlook on a ColorEdge monitor’s screen.

5-Year Warranty

A 5-year manufacturer’s warranty ensures longevity and brings piece of mind. In addition, the backlight is warranted for three years at a brightness of up to 100 cd/m2 or more depending on the model with the usage time at a maximum of 10,000 hours. (See individual product specifications for further details on brightness warranty.)

Convenience and Performance

Convenience and Performance

Display of black is critical when editing video in a dark studio. Bringing out the details in blacks is usually difficult with an LCD monitor because its backlight is always lit up, but the ColorEdge CG246 and CG276 have high contrast ratios so the dark tones retain their depth. They also come with backlit control buttons to improve visibility in dimly-lit environments and an on-screen button guide to indicate what each button is for. 1080/24p playback, 10-bit grayscale range display, and a 3D lut are also included with most ColorEdge CG monitors so you can use them for a wide range of tasks from editing to confirmation.

Predictable Color with Any Media

With content published on so many different types of printed and digital media it’s critical to know how your clients will see color. A ColorEdge monitor and the bundled ColorNavigator software let you do just that as they are designed for both softproofing and digital device emulation. So now you can “predict” how color will appear to your clients whether you produce content for printed media like books and magazines or for digital media devices like tablets, smart phones, and notebook computers.

Editing and Master Monitor

The ColorEdge CG232W meets the various demands of post-production, including color grading, image evaluation, and nonlinear editing for broadcasting. A button on the monitor’s front bezel for switching between PC and SDI signals lets studio professionals do both video editing and reference (playback) on a single monitor.

Continuous extension of ZEISS cinema lenses

OBERKOCHEN/Germany, April 3, 2013
Carl Zeiss presents its entire Compact Family at the NAB Show 2013 (8-11 April) in Las Vegas at its booth C9043. This popular lens family currently consists of 14 fixed focal lengths – the Compact Prime CP.2 lenses – and two Compact Zoom CZ.2 lenses. Thanks to the large focal range of the Compact Family (15-200mm), full-frame coverage (24x36mm) and the interchangeable mount system, the lenses in the Compact Family are a safe investment for cinematographers and rental companies.

Thanks to five different interchangeable mounts for PL, EF, F, MFT and E, the lenses of the ZEISS Compact Family can be used on a wide selection of cameras. The interchangeable mount and the 24×36 mm image circle illumination make the lenses very versatile to use, whether on HDSLR and HD video cameras or on professional cine cameras. The lenses are characterized by their robustness and a uniform focus rotation angle of 300 degrees, making them ideally suited to deal with any demand on the set. All Compact Family lenses also have a cine-style housing with gears for mounting follow-focus systems. “We get a lot of positive feedback from clients and cinematographers who work with our lenses. Not only because of the many available focal lengths but also because our lenses are ideally suited for every possible demand on the set. Furthermore, they are broadly compatible and have very good value,” says Richard Schleuning, National Sales Manager, Americas for the Carl Zeiss Camera Lens Division.

Thanks to the full-frame feature, the lenses can create a ‘sweet spot’ effect when used on Super 35 sensors. Due to the same front diameter across the different lens types as well as the uniform positioning of the gears, the lenses can be changed quickly without a lot of adjustments to the mounted accessories. The interchangeable mount system makes these lenses the only cine lenses on the market that can be used directly on the latest full-frame cine cameras. “ZEISS lenses from the Compact Family give me the flexibility and consistent look I need, regardless of what format I am shooting. Whether I am shooting full frame DSLR or Super 35, ZEISS Compact lenses deliver the consistency and resolving power I want,” says Den Lennie, a director of photography.

Other advantages include a compact design and a light weight ranging from 1 to a maximum of 2.8 kg (2.2 to 6.1 pound), which makes it possible to do hand-held shooting. The front diameter is uniform at 114 mm for prime and 95 mm for the zoom lenses. The Compact Family lenses come with calibrated focus scales and the ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating as well as internal stray light reduction. The 14 aperture blades on the prime lenses and 18 blades on the Compact Zoom CZ.2 70-200/T2.9 ensure natural looking out-of-focus details. All lenses from the Compact Family fulfill 4K production standards.

With a track record of 75 years in developing and manufacturing high-end lenses for big-screen productions, the success of the Compact Family is testament to Carl Zeiss’s ability to spot and react quickly to the latest market developments. Carl Zeiss engineers have received three Scientific and Engineering Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS). ZEISS cine lenses have been used for such well-known Hollywood movies as ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and ‘Life of Pi’.
