Now it’s easy to 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, making it easier to accurately set focus and frame shots, plus you get high speed SD card recorders for HD or Ultra HD recording in incredible 10-bit 4:2:2 quality ProRes or DNxHD files. Now, with both a 7” Ultra HD and 5” HD model, Blackmagic Video Assist works with any camera where you need better monitoring and more professional high quality file recording!
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!
