Now available to hire, the Blackmagic Video Assist 4K 7 inch monitor/recorder. Now with 3D LUT support in latest firmware release 2.3.

Now it’s easy to add professional monitoring and broadcast quality HD & 4K video and audio 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.

The new firmware 2.2 update lets customers save DNxHD and DNxHR files in MXF containers which improves compatibility with Avid systems running on Windows and removes dependencies on the .mov file format. In addition, customers can now choose between DNxHD 220, 145 and 45 bit rates, or between DNxHR HQ, SQ and LB formats when recording. In addition, Video Assist 2.2 update also expands the options for focus assist so customers can now choose whether they want to see red, green, blue, black, white or traditional focus peaking indicators. With the latest 2.3 firmware you can install up to 6 different 3D LUTs so you can dial in a look in post and save it as a LUT file onto the monitor so you can view how you final grade will look while you shoot.

This unit has great audio capability and offers Phantom power -48v over XLR for attaching two microphones. You can adjust levels for each mic and monitor the signals on headphones or record embedded audio from the video input. There are plenty of screw holes to mount a radio mic or a shock mount to the top and to mount brackets to mount the monitor on your rig.

This monitor is supplied with:

  • 4x Canon LP-E6 batteries
  • 1x Canon battery charger with mains adapter
  • 1 x mains power adapter (UK)
  • 2x mini XLR to female XLR cables to plug in your mic's
  • 2x 256GB 1000x SD cards that are compatible for 4K UHD and 1080 recording
  • 1x SD card reader

If you need longer battery life (this unit is quite power hungry!) we have extra batteries or you can use our dummy LE6 battery with DTAP and power the monitor from your rig batteries.
