Blackmagic Video Assist

Blackmagic Video Assist

Incredible all in one design for monitoring and recording!

Blackmagic Video Assist 12G HDR is packed with high end recording and monitoring features in a small, lightweight package that can be connected to virtually any camera. The front features a large HDR touchscreen, there are video connections and SD card slots on the side, and space for two NP‑F batteries on the back. The outer frame is made out of durable aluminum and features standard ¼" mount points on the top and bottom for attaching it to cameras and rigs. Blackmagic Video Assist 12G HDR is designed to be self contained and light weight, making it easy to hold in your hands or mount to your camera.

Lightweight, Durable Construction

The frame of Blackmagic Video Assist 12G HDR is made from extremely durable and lightweight aircraft grade aluminum, so it’s incredibly sturdy and doesn’t add a lot of extra weight to your camera. The aluminum is precision machined into the intricate shape needed to house the connections and touchscreen display. The mounting points are designed into the strong aluminum frame for maximum durability. You get a heavy duty metal that is comfortable enough to hold in your hand and still light enough to be mounted on even the smallest rig.

Bright and Vivid 5" or 7" Display

The 5 inch and 7 inch Blackmagic Video Assist 12G HDR models both feature a super bright HDR monitor and built in 3D LUT processor so you can clearly evaluate every shot. The 5" model gives you a full 1920 x 1080 display, while the 7" model features a higher resolution 1920 x 1200 screen. That means the 7 inch model lets you see 16:9 video clearly without covering up the image with the on-screen heads up display! The fully adjustable 2500 nit screen is incredibly bright, making it perfect for shooting indoors or out. The wide 135º viewing angle makes it easy for multiple members of the crew to watch it at the same time. Image rotation can be locked or set to auto rotate, so no matter which way you set it up the picture is always displayed correctly.

Interface Mobile

Modern and Intuitive User Interface

The built in display is also an incredibly intuitive and responsive capacitive touchscreen that can be used for both monitoring and setup. Blackmagic Video Assist 12G HDR runs Blackmagic OS, which uses simple tap and swipe gestures to show or hide settings for the capture resolution and format as well as brightness and contrast of the screen. Swipe in another direction and you’ll have access to transport controls, recording status, histogram, audio level, timecode, battery status, and more. Best of all, the controls are overlaid using a semi transparent heads up display, which allows you to always keep an eye on your shot!

Plug into Cameras, Projectors and More

Video and audio are captured using multi‑rate 12G‑SDI and HDMI, allowing you to record from almost any kind of camera. You also get loop thru outputs so you can display live video or recorded clips on external screens or projectors with embedded audio. You can also monitor audio using the 3.5mm stereo headphone jack or the built in front panel speaker. For power, there’s a 12V DC input and two NP‑F battery slots. The 7 inch Blackmagic Video Assist 12G HDR also features LANC, dual SDHC card recorders and two mini XLR microphone inputs!

Mount it upside down or right side up

Mount It Upside Down or Right Side Up!

Both models of Blackmagic Video Assist 12G HDR feature a built in accelerometer, so whether you mount it right side up or upside down, the image will always auto rotate so you can see it perfectly! You can also lock the screen to a specific orientation, just in case you’re flying to Mars with no gravity or on a gimbal that’s rotating unpredictably! This flexibility means that you can mount Video Assist to the top or bottom of your rig, orienting it in whichever direction makes it easier to connect cables!

Multiple mounting points

Attach to Cameras, Equipment Carts or Hang It Anywhere

There are 3 mounting points located on the top and 3 mounting points located on the bottom of Video Assist. Using the bottom ¼ inch holes, you can securely attach it to the top of your camera as the ultimate viewfinder! The three ¼" holes on top allow you to hang it from rigs and use it as a monitor for the entire crew. The standard sized mounting points make it easy to mount and are compatible with third party rigging equipment.

Portable Design

Plug It In or Go Mobile

Blackmagic Video Assist 12G HDR includes a universal 110V ‑ 240V external power supply so you can use it anywhere. When connected to the 12V DC input you get continuous power or it can be run off of dual Sony compatible NP-F rechargeable batteries. Intelligent battery management will use the battery with less charge first, ensuring one battery is drained of its power before using any of the power from the next battery.
