  • New Video Assist

    While waiting on my um46 order I'm pondering a monitor. I have an old lilliput monitor but i its hdmi only. So before I buy a VA, is there a possibility that a new VA with 4K support could be announced?
    Has there been any news of anything like this in that price range from BM or anyone else?

    4k on a screen with less than 14" would not make much sense IMHO

      Like Frank said its a question of being able to notice. Apple has already done the heavy lifting for the industry in millions of research dollars. They have determined what the maximum resolution a human eye can render for a given viewing distance and screen size. iPhone plus which is 5.5 inch screen has a PPI of 400. The VA which is 5 inch and is 1080p should have 440. So well above what Apple considers "Retina".
      So better than iPhones. I have a VA and that thing is extremely clear.

        Also. The VA can accept a UHD signal via SDI and downscaled it to HD for display/recording.
        What yiou are more likely to see at this year's NAB is a VA around 7-inches, with color calibration and possibly LUT support.

          I think you might see a Video Assist Plus, that's 7", and records 4k to SSDs. I don't see a reason why not since other companies have similar products.

            If so, a 7-inch VA 4K will probably record to CFast cards vice SSDs, as BM is moving away from SSD for recording. The Pix 5/7 uses the next generation of smaller SSD "SpeedDrive" in a USB3 key enclosure, about 1/3rd size of a 2.5-inch SSD, only Atomos is still using SSDs in the newer 4K recorders.

              This is what I meant. The HD screen is perfect, its the 4k recording functionality that I was looking for! I guess I'll wait for NAB!

                As you're getting a UM46K you don't really need an external recorder, so I'd suggest picking this up for a couple of hundred bucks instead:

                Either that or spend more and get the wonderful SmallHD 502! :-D (or their 702)

                  I'm pretty sure the UM46 doesn't have an HDMI out, so that monitor would be utterly pointless

                    Do you think they will update the video assist to have pull down working with c100 camera for Nab. Just got the phonecalls to order 1 and I'm scared.....

                      Nah, not at all, just get an HDMI/SDI convertor for a couple of bucks

                        You can always remove the pull down in post, you get the same results, as if you removed it during recording. . By adding the 2/3 pulldown, Canon degraded the image at the start, so only advantage of removing the pull down when recording to the VA, is convience.
