Add professional monitoring and recording to any SDI or HDMI camera with Blackmagic Video Assist – You get a super bright touch screen display that’s much larger than the displays found on DSLR cameras. The monitor supports 3D LUTs and includes powerful focus assist and exposure tools that make it easier to accurately set focus, expose and frame shots. Blackmagic Video Assist features high speed SD card recorders for HD or Ultra HD recording in incredible 10‑bit 4:2:2 quality ProRes, DNxHD and DNxHR files in Quicktime and MXF formats.
Whether it’s a wedding, an indie film, or a television commercial, you need to make sure your images are perfectly sharp and captured at the highest possible quality, no matter what type of camera you use. Blackmagic Video Assist works with everything from DSLR’s to older tape based camcorders, and even the latest digital film cameras. Blackmagic Video Assist helps you make sure every shot is in focus and gives you professional images with the same recording quality used by major motion pictures and prime time TV shows.
The 5” Video Assist features a 1920 x 1080 screen, HD recorder, and a down converter for monitoring and recording HD from Ultra HD cameras. The large screen makes it easier to focus and frame shots, and the recorder saves files that are far superior quality than the highly compressed files that DSLRs record. It’s also a fast and inexpensive way to add modern file based recording to your existing HD cameras. You get 10‑bit 4:2:2 broadcast quality files that work with all major editing software, so you’ll never have to worry about tape, optical discs or other proprietary and slow media formats again.
