Ikan to Display Their Complete Line of 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizers at NAB 2016


HOUSTON, Texas, (Apr. 11, 2016) — At the 2016 NAB Show held at the Las Vegas Convention Center April 16-21, Ikan International Corp will be one of the first to present a complete line of handheld gimbal stabilizers designed for cameras of any size. At Ikan’s booth (C9911), NAB attendees will be able to gain complete access to put these gimbals to the test. Highlighted in this year’s lineup include the FLY-X3-PLUS (for smartphones), FLY-X3-GO (for GoPros), MS1 (for mirrorless cameras), and the DS1 (for DSLR cameras). Not to be left out, the newly released WenPod MD2 has been generating excitement from all over the world and will be sure to impress.


The FLY-X3-PLUS is one of the smoothest and best performing handheld gimbals on the market and turns your mobile phone or GoPro camera into a powerful image capture tool, shooting fluid professional video and eliminating shaky camera moves. Another product from the FLY-X3 family is the new FLY-X3-GO that offers creative mounting and smooth operation for your GoPro. It provides better control and stability for those unique shots that set it apart from other competitors. The FLY-X3-GO can also be mounted on a monopod, boom pole or roll bar mount. Best of all, this GoPro gimbal stabilizer comes pre-programmed to use straight out of the box!


Stepping up to the larger handheld gimbals, Ikan provides the MS1 Beholder Gimbal for Mirrorless Cameras up to 1.9 pounds. The MS1 is equipped with a 3-axis gyro stabilized brushless motor to help make balancing the camera a quick and easy setup. The slightly larger DS1 Beholder Gimbal is designed for large DSLRs and mirrorless cameras to achieve smooth, stable footage. The DS1 uses brushless gimbal motors to stabilize movement on tilt-and-roll axes and provide incredibly smooth image capture while shooting in any situation in which the camera is moving and can support up to 3.7 pounds (1700 grams) of camera. Lastly, the WenPod MD2 provided by Ikan is a next generation 3-axis gimbal with advanced A.I. technology that will bring a videographer’s work to the next level and has a load capacity of 6.6 pounds.


Product Manager Julio Ramon is excited for this year’s lineup that will give customers a chance to feel the quality that Ikan gimbals provide. “We were able to listen to our customers and provide products that truly fit every step of their stabilization needs,” Ramon stated. “It’s exciting to be leading the pack regarding stabilization and be one of the few that can outfit a videographer for each of their devices.”


Ikan Corp: Taking Mobile Compatibility to the Next Level


HOUSTON, Texas, (Apr. 11, 2016) — In a world where everyone demands mobile options, Ikan is now able to provide that for sliders and follow focus systems. At the NAB 2016 show, the PD Movie Remote Air Pro (PD3) will be on display and will be sure to impress attendees as a ground-breaking wireless follow focus system. Also, just released is the Magic Motor for the ES Series Slider from E-Image which will quickly convert a manually operated camera slider into a precise imaging machine controlled wirelessly.

The goal of the PD Movie Remote Air Pro (PD3) from Ikan was to create an innovative wireless follow focus with a rapid response system. In order to achieve such a distinctive design, they incorporated the high quality delicate touch screen of iOS devices, as well as combined the motor and receiver into a single unit for maximum convenience. The PD Movie Remote Air Pro represents a full range of advanced technology achievements that produce the most outstanding performance yet. Best of all, it barely makes any noise! Because of its internal structure, the controller motor accommodates both the driver and receiver making it lighter, thinner and extremely compact. The new Remote Air Pro is also built to withstand harsh environments including severe weather, extreme shaking and long-term operation. The low-profile design, which measures only 19mm, makes it the perfect choice for gimbal and steadicam work and can operate ANY lens on the market! The Remote Air Pro controller handwheel has a resolution of 7200 dpi which is 13.4 times more precise than the first generation Remote Air.


It takes very little time for the Magic Motor to seamlessly integrate with any E-Image ES Series slider. For the first time, three camera control modes allows users to achieve cinematic quality previously unavailable except to the highest levels of video production. The accurate, powerful stepless motor allows the camera to move in both vertical and horizontal positions without hesitation, all the while maintaining steady, anti-shake motion the entire time! But it’s the included shutter control that unlocks the real power of the Magic Motor’s software. It allows you to easily capture beautiful time-lapse video and stop motion images with the simple touch of a button. The Bluetooth app, available for both IOS and Android, provides the option of adjusting almost any parameter of operation. Once you combine this power and precision with an ES series slider, you will undoubtedly understand why it will be one of the best cinematic tools in anyone’s filmmaking belt.

“The need to be able to provide remote control from mobile devices is becoming very popular in the industry. We are extremely excited to show off these two new products at this year’s show,” says Product Manager Julio Ramon.
