Blackmagic Video Assist 4K

7” high resolution monitor with Ultra HD recorder!

Video Assist 4K features a 7” high resolution screen, two high speed recorders for non-stop Ultra HD recording, XLR mic inputs, a built in speaker and more! The larger screen is 1920 x 1200, so you can see a full 16:9 image without the status bar covering the picture. Video Assist 4K features the latest high speed UHS-II SD card recorders and can record 1080 HD as well as Ultra HD up to 2160p30 on low cost, readily available SD cards! You also get two extremely low noise professional analog mini XLR connections so you can bypass low quality DSLR audio and connect professional microphones directly.

Shoot Better Video

See and capture every detail with confidence!

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. When you’re shooting a wedding, there’s only one chance to get it right and if you’re an indie filmmaker, you want your film to look as good as a Hollywood movie when projected at festivals. 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!

Available in 2 exciting models, you can choose the Blackmagic Video Assist with a 5” screen and HD recorder, or the 7” Blackmagic Video Assist 4K with HD and Ultra HD recording, low noise balanced analog mini XLR mic inputs, a built in speaker and more! Both feature 6G-SDI and HDMI connections, making it easy to add professional monitoring and recording to any camera!

Professional HD and Ultra HD Recorder

10-bit 4:2:2 ProRes and DNxHD recording!

The 5” Video Assist records all HD formats up to 1080p60, and the 7” Video Assist 4K records HD and Ultra HD up to 2160p30. You get incredible looking, broadcast quality 10-bit, 4:2:2 ProRes or DNxHD files that work with all major editing software so you can start editing without having to convert them! Recording can be automatically triggered from SDI and HDMI so you can stay focussed on getting the shot, without having to worry about operating additional gear! The 7” Video Assist 4K also has two recorders so when one card is full, it automatically continues recording onto the next!

 

Records to High Speed SD Card

Low cost, high performance storage you can get anywhere!

Both models record HD video using standard SD memory cards and the 7” Video Assist 4K can also record to super high performance UHS-II cards which are fast enough to record Ultra HD! That means it’s now possible to record Ultra HD using low cost cards that cost less than $2 per GB. By connecting Video Assist to your existing camera, you can eliminate proprietary and expensive media such as XDCAM, P2 and SxS. UHS-II cards are fully backwards compatible with regular SD card slots so you can just insert them into your computer to start editing the media immediately.
