Add professional monitoring and high-quality recording to virtually any camera with the Video Assist 5" 12G-SDI/HDMI HDR Recording Monitor from Blackmagic Design. It features a bright 5", 1920 x 1080 display with 2500 cd/m² brightness to help you frame and focus your shots, and provides 12G-SDI and HDMI inputs for recording the video output from professional and consumer cameras. You can monitor and record HDR video up to DCI 4K, UHD 4K, 2K, or HD 10-bit 4:22 and up to 16 channels of embedded 24-bit 48 kHz audio.

The Video Assist records using a single high-speed UHS-II SD slot to SDHC/XC memory cards. You can also use the USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C port to record to an external drive, as well as use it for configuring and upgrading the monitor. Video is recorded using industry-standard Apple ProRes (HQ, 422, LT, or Proxy) and Avid DNxHD and DNxHR codecs.

The monitor's touchscreen interface allows you to adjust settings and access monitoring features such as histogram, waveform, RGB parade, vectorscope, and many more scopes and exposure tools. There is also a tally light on top of the monitor to indicate that it is operating and recording. To power the monitor, a 12V power adapter is included. It also has dual battery slots on the rear to power the monitor using separately available Sony L-series type batteries.

Bright 5" Full HD Display

The display features a bright 5" 1920 x 1080 display with 2500 cd/m² brightness for evaluating your shots. On-screen controls allow you to vary the brightness and contrast depending on the shooting situation.

4K Support

Monitor and record DCI 4K, UHD 4K, 2K, and HD resolutions with 10-bit 4:2:2 HDR support. 3D LUTs are also supported

12G-SDI and HDMI Connections

Video and audio are captured using 12G-SDI and HDMI 1.4 inputs, allowing you to record from professional cameras and camcorders, as well as popular DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. The 12G-SDI BNC input even allows you to monitor Ultra HD footage. Loop-through outputs are provided so you can simultaneously display the live video or recorded clips on larger screens like 4K, 2K, or HD broadcast monitors or HDMI projectors while you monitor and record on the Video Assist. Up to eight channels of audio are embedded in the output and can also be monitored on headphones using the 3.5mm stereo jack.

Touchscreen Interface

The display provides intuitive capacitive touchscreen controls. Swipe gestures make it simple and quick to show or hide settings, such as capture resolution and format, as well as screen brightness and contrast. You'll have access to additional controls, recording status, histogram, waveform, vectorscope, battery status, and more. The controls have a semi-transparent overlay, so you can still be able to keep an eye on every part of your shots.

10-Bit 4:2:2 ProRes & DNxHD Recording

The Blackmagic Video Assist records your video at the 10-bit 4:2:2 quality. Files are recorded to a single high-speed UHS-II slot using SDXC/HC cards in Apple ProRes (HQ, 422, LT, Proxy) or DNxHD and DNxHR codecs. These are industry-standard formats, so you can start editing immediately without having to convert the files.

Power

A universal power supply is included so you can use the Video Assist anywhere using the 12 VDC input, or run off two Sony L-series type batteries in the dual battery slots.
