The Ikan VX9e 8.9" HD-SDI LCD Monitor with Panasonic D54 Battery Plate is a professional field production monitor for camcorders and DSLR cameras. The VX9e features a full range of digital and analog inputs, including HDMI and HD-SDI. Its included battery plate allows you to use high-capacity Panasonic D54 series batteries.

The 1024 x 600 monitor offers a wealth of features that professionals require for critical focusing tasks and setting proper exposure, as well as blue gun for calibration. With loop-through outputs for the HD/SD-SDI, analog component, composite, and S-Video inputs, the VX9e is a highly compatible component in a video system, especially if you're using a HD-SDI-based recorder or a second monitor with analog inputs.

At only 1.6 lb, it's lightweight enough to ride along on DSLR and camcorder rigs, giving the operator a large, bright display that facilitates the judgment of critical parameters of the picture.

Peaking
The VX9e is equipped with both monochrome and color Peaking features, which highlight the desired focus area in a bright silver outline. The operator adjusts the focus control until the silver indicator outlines on the desired area are razor-sharp, indicating optimal focus. For the best results, be sure the subject is properly exposed
False Color
The False Color feature utilizes a full spectrum of assigned color indicators, ensuring flawless shot exposure. As the camera iris is adjusted, the subject of the image will change color based on specific brightness values indicating optimal exposure
Adjustable Under Exposure & Over Exposure Warning
As an additional tool associated with the VX9e's False Color feature, Ikan's Adjustable Over Luminance and Under Luminance Warning features give the operator full control of the VX9e False Color brightness values. By setting the preferred IRE exposure limits, the operator is warned when the image exposure is exceeding or falling under the preset IRE limit, providing customizable, full-image exposure control
Clip Guides
The VX9e offers adjustable upper Clip Guide levels to accurately display overexposed images in any shooting condition. The operator simply assigns the upper IRE to their preference and any exposure over the set IRE limit will flash in a vivid purple, indicating only the over exposed area
Battery Plate & AC Adapter Included
The days of purchasing a separate battery plate for your monitor are over. In addition to the included AC adapter, the VX9e comes complete with the BP2 battery adapter plate for Panasonic D54 series batteries. This way you have a complete, self-powered DSLR or camcorder field monitor with the quality and reliability you have come to expect from Ikan
It's All About Connections
The VX9e offers HD-SDI (which also converts the signal to analog component out), HDMI, HD/SD component, S-Video, and composite inputs, giving you ability to use the VX9e with any video device in the industry. All of the inputs (besides S-Video) use professional-grade BNC connectors to insure you stay connected while offering full loop-through capabilities for each input save for HDMI

          Comments about ikan VX9e 8.9" HD-SDI LCD Monitor with Panasonic D54 Battery Plate:

          So far, so good. The VX9e monitor has nearly every professional input you will ever need. I bought this because of the types of inputs and having the ability to go AC/DC. As a jib operator, you never know what type of camera someone wants you to fly. The HDMI and SDI are great plus having RGB component and SDI to RGB breakout is a cool feature that I have not used YET. Time will tell.

          Good Value for an SDI Field Monitor

                Comments about ikan VX9e 8.9" HD-SDI LCD Monitor with Panasonic D54 Battery Plate:

                If you've been using the flip out monitor on your HD camcorder, you're going to be surprised at the clarity that you can get with this 8.9-inch screen. The peaking and false color settings aren't that useful - this unit would be better served with a waveform. The side by side freeze frame feature is really good for comparing exposure on clips already shot with what you're lining up to shoot. The build quality seems OK - the plastic frame doesn't flex too much when connecting video. If you're mounting this monitor to your camera, consider using the 4-pin power tap to keep from having to weigh down the monitor with a battery. Overall, this is a good sized monitor for judging color and exposure on set.
