Add professional monitoring and high–quality recording to virtually any camera with the Blackmagic Design Video Assist 7″ 12G HDR Recording Monitor. It features a bright 7″, 1920 x 1200 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. The monitor also features two balanced 3-pin mini-XLR inputs with 48V phantom power support for crisp audio recording. You can monitor and record HDR video up to DCI 4K, UHD 4K, 2K, or HD 10-bit 4:2:2 and up to 16 channels of embedded 24-bit 48 kHz audio.
The Video Assist records using dual high-speed UHS-II SD slots 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 Blackmagic Design Video Assist 7″ 12G HDR Recording Monitor has a 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.
When you update the firmware to version 3.3, Blackmagic has introduced USB webcam output, so the monitor can send a full 1080p signal to your computer over USB in a streaming-friendly format. Also added is audio monitoring channel selection. This 7″ version also gains XLR audio mapping to different channels and XLR external timecode.
