Ikan Shows Blitz Wireless Production Support

New Ikan system provides uncompressed, zero delay wireless video to monitor performance of untethered camera systems.

At IBC, Ikan showed its Blitz 400 line of wireless production support gear, essential in today’s increasingly wireless production world. The Blitz features uncompressed, zero delay wireless video in a lightweight and affordable package. With a 400-foot range, this system is perfect for various types of uses such as with wireless follow focus systems as well as gimbal and steadicam operators. The Blitz 400 is specifically designed for untethered production cameras.

Blitz supports both HDMI 1.3 and 3G-SDI delivering uncompressed high definition video up to 1080 60p.

The Blitz 400 is made from durable machined aluminum and is extremely easy to set up. After power on the units will sync in about 20 seconds or less. There are no complicated menus with its easy-to-use wireless channel selection switch. The transmitter is small and lightweight, so it can be mounted just about anywhere, like a camera shoe mount. The receiver features five internal antennas to ensure a strong signal as well as 4 signal strength LED indicators, making it easy to objectively observe signal strengths.

Blitz 400 systems on display at IBC were the BZ400-S7H-KIT, BZ400-DH7-KIT, and BZ400-2R-KIT with two receivers.
