Ikan is bringing a lot of new kit to NAB 2018. The new announcements include the release of the new Ikan CB8 canvas fabric LED light and the Helia Studio Fresnel LED. The latest light is flexible enough to be used in unconventional or compact spaces, but the light also functions as a full light kit. The CB8 comes in both two point and three point kits, which include light stands, bags and a soft box diffuser.
“Sometimes the hardest part of videography is carrying the equipment,” says Product Manager Barry Garcia. “The best part about our new bi-colour fabric lights is the portability and the light weight when traveling with them.”
The lightweight and portable LED light is bi-colour between 3200K and 5600K. The CB8 hits a high mark of 95 on both the Colour Rendering Index (CRI) and Television Lighting Consistency Index (TLCI). The light can be used in a variety of videography including broadcast, music, documentary, filmmaking, corporate video and more.
Flexible, canvas LEDs are in vogue for sure, and Ikan are the latest manufacturer to join the sub-segment of the LED game. In case you missed it, you can also check out my BVE 2018 coverage where I checked out the Aladdin flex lights (link here).

The other new lighting product Ikan is bringing to NAB 2018 is the new Helia HF150 LED fresnel light. The Helia is a bi-colour light, allowing for use in a variety of videography including broadcast, music, documentary filmmaking, corporate video and more.
“Since the light is a bi-color Fresnel, the HF150 light will give a lot of broadcast studios a chance to mix color more,” says Product Manager Barry Garcia.
The Helia is a 4″ fresnel glass fitted with a bi-colour 150 watt COB LED bulb with virtually no heat displacement. The HF150 is equivalent to a 650 incandescent watt. Ikan’s newest light has a CRI/TLCI of 96, which is very good.

The third LED announcements from Ikan is the two ring lights called Oryon, a new line of large diameter ring lights. The line includes 14″ and two 18″ ring lights with an option for a cosmetic mirror. The soft light produced from these ring lights is ideal for close-up photography or videography, particularly in vlogging or social influencer photography.
“The best thing about these new large diameter ring lights is just how soft they are when you’re using them for close-up work,” says Product Manager Barry Garcia. “The lights are dynamic and can be used in photography, music videography, filmmaking, vlogging, and so much more.”
