Blackmagic Design Video Assist 4K 7" Recording Monitor

The Blackmagic Design Video Assist 4K makes it 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.

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.


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.


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

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

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.


Super bright and clear display

Blackmagic Video Assist has a bright 5” or 7” display so you don’t have to carry extra monitors and scopes on set. The large screens make it easy to see focus peaking and overlays such as histogram, audio meters, controls and more. You can mount it on cameras as a large crew monitor, hand it to the cinematographer for composing shots, or set it in front of the director to review each take. The screen has a wide 135º viewing angle, which means it’s easy to see, even when several crew members are watching. The image also auto rotates, so you can even rig it upside down.


High Quality Audio Recorder

Blackmagic Video Assist 4K is also an extremely high quality audio recorder. You get two mini XLR inputs with 48V of phantom power so you can attach external microphones to record audio with Video Assist, instead of your camera. This totally eliminates the problems with auto gain controls on DLSR cameras. With an amazing equivalent input noise floor of -128dBV, you get high quality, crystal clear audio that sounds dramatically better than camera audio. Sound is recorded into the same file as the video so you don’t have to worry about AV sync between separate audio and video files.


Easy Touchscreen Controls

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 tap and swipe gestures to display camera information, change settings and evaluate audio and video levels. The elegant heads up display let’s 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

Designed to be durable and light weight, both models are incredibly small yet still incorporate large LCD monitors and touch screens. Both models include high speed SD card recorders and space for two rechargeable batteries, which are hot swappable so you never have to stop shooting. 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 the crew. The 7” Video Assist 4K even features a built in speaker, making it easy for everyone to review shots.


Professional Connections. Connects to professional cameras, camcorders and DSLR’s

The compact design of the Blackmagic Video Assist includes HDMI and 6G-SDI so you can connect them to virtually any DSLR, prosumer or professional camera. The loop thru output lets you monitor on larger displays or projectors. The 12V universal power supply gives you continuous operation. When you’re on location, two side by side LP-E6 batteries give you enough power for longer shoots. The Blackmagic Video Assist 4K also features a LANC connector and two mini XLR inputs with 48V of phantom power for connecting microphones, along with a built in speaker that automatically mutes while recording.


Record files that are ready for editing and grading

Blackmagic Video Assist captures ProRes and Avid DNxHD 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.
