Better Monitoring – Super Bright and Clear HD Display
The Blackmagic Video Assist has a bright 5 inch 1920 x 1080 high resolution display so you don’t have to carry extra on set monitors and scopes. You can mount it on cameras as a large monitor for the crew, hand it to the cinematographer for composing the shot, or set it in front of the director to review each take. The screen has a wide 135 degree viewing angle, which means it’s easy to see, even when several crew members are watching. Plus, the image auto rotates so no matter which way you set it up your cables 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!

The built in monitor is also an interactive touchscreen that makes setting up the Blackmagic Video Assist incredibly intuitive. All of the functions are at your fingertips allowing you to use simple swipe gestures to display camera information, change settings and evaluate audio and video levels. The elegant heads up display is a semi transparent overlay that lets you change recording formats or view the current input frame rate, histogram, audio meters, timecode, and more, all while still keeping your eyes on the shot!

Portable All-in-One Design – Integrated On-Set Monitoring and Recording
Designed to be durable and light weight, Video Assist is incredibly small yet still incorporates a bright 5 inch 1920 x 1080 LCD monitor and touchscreen. It includes a built in high speed SD recorder and space for two rechargeable batteries which are hot swappable so you always have a battery to keep the shoot going. You can use the mounting points to attach it to the top of a camera or use the built in kick stand to set it up on a table. It’s even comfortable enough to hold in your hands so you can pass it around to crew members, letting everyone from the cinematographer to the boom operator see the shot!

Video, Audio and Power Connections – Connect to Professional Cameras, Camcorders and DSLR’s
The compact design of the Blackmagic Video Assist includes HDMI and 6G-SDI inputs so you can record from virtually any video camera or DSLR. The loop through output lets you monitor on larger HD broadcast displays or HDMI projectors. Audio can be monitored from the 3.5mm stereo headphone jack and for studio shoots, the 12V universal power supply gives you continuous operation. When you’re on location the two side by side LP-E6 battery slots let you go completely mobile and give you enough power for longer shoots!

High Speed SD Card – Low Cost, High Performance Storage
The built in recorder uses SD memory cards which are even fast enough to capture and playback high frame rate 1080 HD video at 60 frames per second! That means you can use low cost removable media that’s less than $1 per GB. SD cards are readily available and allow you to record up to 3 hrs of 1080p24 ProRes HQ on a single 256GB card! By connecting the Blackmagic Video Assist to your existing camera, you can eliminate proprietary and expensive media such as XDCAM, P2 and SXS. SD cards can even be mounted directly on your computer, so you don’t have to deal with external card readers or docking units!

Work with Professional Software
The Blackmagic Video Assist captures ProRes 422 HQ and Avid DNxHD MXF files which are the most widely accepted post production video formats in the world. If you are working with popular editing software such as DaVinci Resolve, Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere Pro or Avid Media Composer, you can start editing and color correcting without having to transcode or convert the files. Since it comes bundled with DaVinci Resolve Lite, you can begin editing and creating looks on set! Even motion graphics and visual effects artists using software like Fusion and After Effects, or sound editors using ProTools can easily work with the files for fantastic collaboration!

On-Set Monitoring Recording and Playback
The Blackmagic Video Assist is the perfect accessory for any camera because it gives you everything you need to properly frame, focus and capture your shots! Any production using a DVCPRO, HDCAM or even a brand new full frame DSLR camera will instantly benefit from the larger high resolution screen and can use it to record professional quality ProRes or DNxHD video with full 10 bit quality. If you’re using a true digital film camera, like the Blackmagic URSA, you can use the Video Assist to record HD while your camera simultaneously records RAW, allowing you to future proof every production and still quickly deliver incredible quality HD today.

Aluminum Metal Frame – Light Weight, Durable Construction
The frame of the Blackmagic Video Assist is made from aircraft grade aluminum which means you get an incredibly sturdy metal that barely adds any weight to your camera. The aluminum is precision machined into the intricate shape needed to house the connections and touchscreen display. It’s also extremely strong, which makes it perfect for bracing the mounting points. You get a heavy duty metal that is comfortable enough to hold in your hand and still light enough to be mounted on even the smallest rig.

Large 5-Inch HD Monitor
The entire front of the Blackmagic Video Assist features the built in display, giving you a big bright monitor for clearly evaluating every shot. The on screen controls allow you to vary the brightness and contrast so it’s perfect for shooting indoors or out. The wide 135 viewing angle makes it easy for multiple members of the crew to watch it at the same time. It even auto rotates so no matter which way you set it up the picture is always displayed correctly.

Touchscreen Control – Modern and Intuitive User Interface
The built in display is also an incredibly intuitive and responsive capacitive touchscreen, which is used to configure and control the Video Assist. Swipe gestures make it simple and quick to show or hide settings for the capture resolution and format as well as brightness and contrast of the screen. Swipe in another direction and you’ll have access to transport controls, recording status, histogram, audio level, timecode, battery status, and more. Best of all, the controls are overlaid using a semi transparent heads up display, which allows you to always keep an eye on your shot!

Uninterruptible Power
The Blackmagic Video Assist includes a universal 110V – 240V power supply so you can use it anywhere. When connected to the 12V DC input you get continuous power or you can run it off of dual Canon compatible LP-E6 rechargeable batteries. Intelligent battery management will use the battery with less charge first, then immediately switch to the other battery without interrupting recording. When connected to AC power, the batteries can be charged in parallel while the Video Assist is still being used. That means you never have to turn the Video Assist monitor off while you’re on a shoot!
