Get unbelievable colour, clarity and detail: Video Assist records at the highest 10-bit 4:2:2 quality. Files are recorded on fast, inexpensive and readily available SD cards and saved as standard ProRes HQ or DNxHD files - start editing immediately without having to convert the files. Recording is automatically triggered on the Video Assist using your video camera’s start/stop button, meaning the user can remain focused on getting the shot without having to worry about operating additional gear.
The Blackmagic Video Assist uses a bright 5” 1920 x 1080 high resolution display so you won’t have to carry extra on set monitors and scopes. It can be mounted on cameras as a large monitor for the crew, handed to the cinematographer for composing a shot, or set in front of the director to review each take. The screen has a wide 135º viewing angle, making it easy to see, even when several crew members are watching. In addition, the image auto rotates. No matter which way you set it up, your cables will always plug into the side you need them to. You can view any SD or HD format and, since it includes a 6G-SDI connection, you can even monitor Ultra HD.
Supports: Uncompressed 10-bit QuickTime, Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) QuickTime, Avid DNxHD QuickTime, Avid DNxHD MXF.
