The MS21 21.5" SD/HD-SDI Studio Monitor from ikan is a full-featured, color-calibrated monitor with Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution. The MS21 features a 21.5" LED backlit screen with 250 Nit brightness, 3000:1 contrast ratio, and wide 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles. It accepts two SD/HD-SDI signals and easily switches between the two input signals with the touch of a button on the front of the monitor. Each signal has its own loop-through port for sharing it with other monitors. The color-calibrated panel lets you enjoy the same color representation between MS21 models - ideal for cooperative use on set or in the studio.

The MS21 provides two SD/HD-SDI inputs, one HDMI input, and one DVI input. It also provides three BNC connectors for analog component, composite, and S-Video signals. The MS21 supports resolutions up to 2048x1080p at 24 fps via HD-SDI, and 1920x1080p at up to 60 fps via HDMI. NTSC and PAL signals are supported over HDMI and analog inputs. The monitor scales video to fit its screen.

The MS21 features built-in advanced focus and exposure assist tools such as, Peaking, False Color, Waveform display, and Clip Guides. There is also a 1:1 pixel mode for checking fine details of your image, guide lines for framing your shot, and underscan/overscan modes. The MS21 accepts 12 to 24 volt DC via the 4-pin XLR connector, and the VESA mounting holes on the back of the unit allow you to attach available battery plates for powering the unit with batteries. You can also power it via the included AC adapter.
