NEWS MANAGE & MONITOR Wireless Monitoring Launching at BVE 2015, Ianiro International is introducing a new range of cost-effective wireless monitors. The new models feature 7, 8 and 10.1 screens, are optimized for use outdoors in full sunlight and can receive and decode 5.8GHz wireless signals. Wireless FPV (first-person viewing) monitors have recently become extremely popular for unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) photography. They are also in regular use with traditional video productions, giving the director an untethered screen to monitor camera output in real-time. With its new units, Ianiro is introducing a new price point, with prices starting at a mere £169 + VAT. Featuring an HDMI input as well as a receiver, its 7 LED is a high resolution, broadcast quality monitor with wide viewing angles. It supports a variety of battery plates including V-lock, Anton Bauer and Sony mounts. Boasting a range of on screen displays for histograms and peaking, it is useful as a focus and confidence monitor, in addition to its role in UAV set ups. The 10 wireless Field Monitor is equally well suited to a dual role, with its built-in wireless receiver, HDMI and composite inputs, sharp 1024 x 600 resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio. Completing the range is the very low cost 8 Ground Station. It is very bright at 450cd/m2 and its contrast ratio of 500:1 makes it easy to see in strong sunlight. It is PAL / NTSC switchable and has a power consumption of less than 8 watts making it ideal for extended shoots. The ability to use these monitors for location shoots or remote UAV flights makes them exceptionally versatile. Traditional shooters can also simply mount the units to their DSLR or system camera for very low cost monitoring, or detach them for use cable-free. Says Nick Allen-Miles, MD of Ianiro International. Users that do not require wireless receivers have two further options. Ianiro is now also distributing two 7 monitors a 1280 x 800 high resolution unit with an HDMI input and loop through as well as a lower resolution model with an HDMI input. All are available from resellers across Europe. 26 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 96 DECEMBER 2014 Microphones DPA Microphones played a prominent role in the making of Becoming California, a two-hour documentary sponsored by The California Environmental Legacy Project that explores the history and future of the states national parks.
