    Now it's easy to add professional monitoring and recording to your camera with the Blackmagic Video Assist! With a bright 5 inch high resolution 1920 x 1080 monitor, Blackmagic Video Assist can be added to any 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 color depth! Blackmagic Video Assist works with any camera where you need better monitoring and more professional high quality file recording.

    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. The 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. The Blackmagic Video Assist helps you make sure every shot is in focus and gives you professional images with the quality used by major motion pictures and prime time TV shows.

    The Blackmagic Video Assist records your video at the highest 10-bit 4:2:2 quality, which means that you get incredible color, clarity and detail. Files are recorded on fast, inexpensive and readily available SD cards and saved as standard ProRes HQ or DNxHD files so you can start editing immediately without having to convert the files. Recording is automatically triggered on your Blackmagic Video Assist using your video camera's start/stop button, so you can remain focused on getting the shot without having to worry about operating additional gear.

    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� 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.
