Blackmagic Video Assist
With Blackmagic Video Assist, it's now easy to add professional monitoring and high quality recording to any camera. SDI and HDMI inputs mean Video Assist works with everything from DSLRs to older tape-based camcorders. Whether you are filming a wedding or an indie movie project, you will get the same quality used by major motion pictures and major television shows!
The 5" full resolution HD monitor ensures perfect focus and framing every time. The screen has a wide 135º viewing angle, which means it's easy to see, even when several people are watching. The image also auto rotates, so your cables can always plug easily into the side you need them to. The professional ProRes and DNxHD recorder uses affordable high speed SD cards and saves files compatible with modern NLE software. Record up to 3 hrs of 1080p24 ProRes HQ on a single 256GB card. By connecting to your existing camera, you can record direct to an SD card and bypass any expensive proprietary media your camera may have required. The touchscreen allows settings, histogram, audio meters, timecode display and much more. With a durable yet lightweight design, Video Assist is as portable as it is functional. It includes slots for two rechargeable LP-E6 batteries which are hot-swappable so you can always keep the shoot going. The 12V universal power supply contributes further to continuous operation, and you can monitor audio from the 3.5mm stereo headphone jack. Blackmagic Video Assist works with any camera where you need better monitoring and more professional high quality file recording.
