New additions to its monitoring and recording solution introduces Blackmagic Design -- Video Assist 12G HDR scores with its very bright 2500-nit touch display with Wide Color Gamut (WCG) and records via 12G SDI and HDMI 2.0 ports in formats up to 2160p/60 (DCI 4K), with codec options for recording in Apple ProRes, Avid DNx and Blackmagic RAW.
In addition to a brighter screen for HDR work, the new design works with more powerful batteries and is now powered by two standard Sony L-Series batteries (or via a 12V DC power connector). The Video Assist records as before on standard SD cards or, thanks to a new USB-C connection, on flash drives (SSD) or data carrier arrays. There is also a tally indicator, four integrated scopes (waveform, vectorscope, RGB parade, histogram) and extended focus assist functions. Overlays can now be displayed full screen.
The Video Assist 12G HDR comes in two versions, 5" and 7"; the 7" model of the Blackmagic Video Assist 12G features two SD card slots for continuous recording and two mini XLR inputs with phantom power for incoming sound from microphones and external audio mixers.
The LCD with its particularly wide colour gamut masters the colour spaces Rec.2020 and Rec.709 as well as the DCI-P3 format 100 percent. Video Assist supports industry-standard 17- and 33-point 3D LUTs. Alternatively, integrated LUTs such as "Extended Video", "Film to Video", "Film to Rec.2020" and others can be used.
The Blackmagic Video Assist 12G HDR monitor recorders will be delivered in September, the 5" version for 865 Euro, the 7 inch one for 1069 Euro.
