This B&H Kit
includes the ikan VK7I 7" HDMI Monitor
and the IndiPRO Tools LINK SDI to HDMI Converter
. This kit has been put together so that you can use the VK7I monitor to view output from cameras with SDI outputs. The VK7I features 1280 x 800 HD resolution and 800:1 contrast ratio for a crisp image. The monitor supports SD and HD resolutions, and incorporates composite, component, and HDMI in and out. The monitor features useful production display modes such as Peaking, False Color, and Clip Guides. The monitor will scale DSLR video (HDMI input only), and it features a 1 to 1 pixel mode so you can look at your image at full HD resolution. The VK7I also features an interchangeable battery plate that is compatible with Sony BP-U series type batteries.
The IndiPRO Link Converter does more than just convert SDI signals to HDMI signals. Monitors with an HDMI input may not support signals that run at frequencies other than 60Hz, and may not display signals converted from SDI. However, the Link Converter auto detects the input frequency and converts the signal from SDI to an HDMI signal at 60Hz. This makes it simple to use cameras, such as the Blackmagic Cinema Camera, that output SDI at frequencies other than 60Hz with HDMI monitors.
