Blackmagic Video Assist 4K

Add professional monitoring and broadcast quality recording to any HD or Ultra HD camera with the Blackmagic Video Assist 4K!

Blackmagic Design Video Assist 4K 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. It’s the prefect recorder for use with Blackmagic Micro Cameras and, if you’re using a true digital film camera, like the Blackmagic URSA or URSA Mini, you can use it to record HD while your camera simultaneously records RAW!

Blackmagic Video Assist 4K features high speed SD card recorders for HD or Ultra HD recording in incredible 10-bit 4:2:2 quality ProRes, DNxHD and DNxHR files in Quicktime and MXF formats. Blackmagic Video Assist works with any camera that needs better quality monitoring and professional format file recording!Blackmagic Video Assist 4K

Featuring two high speed recorders for non-stop Ultra HD recording, the Blackmagic Video Assist 4K has 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!
