Overview
  • 1Description

This B&H Kit includes the ikan VK5 5.6" HD LCD Monitor and the IndiPRO Tools LINK SDI to HDMI Converter. This kit has been put together so that you can use the VK5 monitor to view output from cameras with SDI outputs. The VK5 features 1024 x 600 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 from the HDMI input. The VK5 also features an interchangeable battery plate that is compatible with Panasonic D-54 series type batteries.

The IndiPRO Link Converter does more than just convert SDI signals to HDMI signals; it also converts the frequency to 60Hz. This is important, as monitors with an HDMI input may not support signals that run at frequencies other than 60Hz, and cameras don't always output a 60Hz signal. Most SDI to HDMI signal converters do not convert the frequency, which means that you may not be able to see the converted output on an HDMI monitor. However, the Link Converter auto detects the input frequency and converts the source 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.
