Introducing Blackmagic Video Assist 4K

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!Shoot Better Video

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.

Focus and Exposure Tools

Accurately expose and focus every shot!

Blackmagic Video Assist features powerful focus and exposure tools that help you get the best shots! Focus peaking indicators can be displayed as red, green, blue or white overlays that indicate exactly which parts of the image are in focus. In addition, false color tools make it easy to properly set exposure. The false color tools work by highlighting specific color ranges of luminance with a solid color overlay. Green indicates neutral grey, while pink tones are good references for skin, which is typically one stop over neutral grey. Using false color helps you keep exposure consistent from shot to shot!

Powerful Scopes

Accurate professional scopes!

Blackmagic Video Assist 4K features built in professional scopes! You get a set of highly accurate tools such as waveform monitor, RGB parade, vectorscope and histogram that can be used to precisely evaluate signal quality. The scopes can be viewed full screen or as an overlay superimposed on the image. When using the vectorscope, it can be set at either 2x or 4x zoom to assist with more accurate color calibration. This makes Blackmagic Video Assist 4K perfect for live production monitoring, for use as a portable test scope, and even for balancing color when grading and viewing the RGB parade.

Technical Specifications

Description

Now it’s easy to add professional monitoring and broadcast quality recording to any SDI or HDMI camera! With a bright 7 inch monitor that’s larger than the built in screen on most cameras, Video Assist 4K makes it easier to frame your shots and get absolutely perfect focus! The dual built in high speed UHS-II recorders use commonly available SD cards to record HD and Ultra HD video as professional 10-bit 4:2:2 ProRes or DNxHD files. Unlike DSLRs, which record heavily compressed files that are hard to use with video software, Video Assist records professional, 10 bit broadcast quality files such as ProRes and DNxHR that are compatible with all leading video software so you can start editing immediately, without time wasting file conversions!
