Wireless FPV (first-person viewing) monitors are popular for unmanned aerial vehicle applications, and can be used for traditional productions, giving directors an untethered screen to monitor camera output in real time. With its new 7-, 8- and 10-inch units, Ianiro claims to have hit a new price point, with prices starting at £169 + VAT.
The screens are optimised for use outdoors in full sunlight and can receive and decode 5.8GHz wireless signals. With an HDMI input as well as a receiver, the £275 7-inch 1280×800 LED offers wide viewing angles, supports V-lock, Anton Bauer and Sony battery mounts, with on screen displays for histograms and peaking for use as a focus and confidence monitor. The £235 10-inch wireless Field Monitor has HDMI and composite inputs and 1024×600 resolution, while the £169 8-inch Ground Station offers 450cd/m2 brightness, 500:1 contrast ratio, and has a power consumption of less than 8W 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,” said Nick Allen-Miles, MD of Ianiro International.
Ianiro has two further 7-inch monitors: a 1280×800 unit with HDMI input and loop through; plus a £129 lower-resolution model with HDMI input.
