Product Description

Details

The Blackmagic Design Video Assist means it’s now simple to add professional monitoring and recording to your camera with a bright 5” high resolution 1920 x 1080 monitor. Compatible with any modern camera to ensure perfect focus and framing, the built in recorder uses high speed SD cards to record professional ProRes and DNxHD files with incredible quality and 10-bit colour depth.

Whether it’s a wedding, an indie film, or a television advert, it’s crucial to ensure your images are perfectly sharp and captured at the highest possible quality, no matter what type of camera you use. The Blackmagic Video Assist is compatible with everything from DSLR’s to older tape based camcorders and even the latest digital film cameras. The Blackmagic Design Video Assist will deliver professional images with the quality used by major motion pictures and keep every single shot in focus.

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.
