Now it's 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!
