Use your iPad as an external monitor and recording device with compatible USB Capture Cards. Easily record videos or capture frame grabs from any HDMI or SDI Video Source.

Verified HDMI Capture Cards:
Elgato HD60 X
Elgato HD60 S+
Elgato CamLink 4K
AverMedia Live Gamer Mini
AverMedia ExtremeCap UV (BU110)
UGREEN Video Capture Dongle

Verified SDI Capture Cards:

Review captured video with our suite of in-built playback tools. Set multiple in/out points for a video to quickly get an idea of how it will feel in an edit. Our Playback Controls allow you to scrub to any point in time and navigate frame by frame when required. Playback will loop between different in/out points for takes with multiple actions. The Playback Browser makes finding and sharing specific video clips a breeze, you can even assign each clip a rating to keep track of preferred takes.

Clean Video Output is supported for both live video and playback. Simply connect an external monitor to your iPad with a USB-C to HDMI/DisplayPort Adaptor or via AirPlay. You’ll then be able to control Video Assist from your iPad while providing a clean video feed to another monitor. When using USB Video Output in tandem with a USB Capture Card you will need to use a USB Hub.

Professional Tools such as Color Correction, Video Transform, Grid Lines, Center Marks, Aspect Ratio Masks, Anamorphic Desqueeze, RGB/Luminance Histograms and Audio Meters are built-in. Apply video effects in real-time to a Live Video Feed or while in Playback Mode for a previously captured clip.

Automatic Record Trigger is supported for all ARRI Alexa, Sony Venice, RED and Blackmagic Cameras via a custom built computer vision model. Record Trigger requires status info on your camera output, it will not work on a clean video feed. If we don’t support Record Trigger for a camera you own please get in touch, we’d love to bring that functionality to Video Assist.

All Videos and Frame Grabs are stored on your iPad and can be accessed from the ‘Files’ App. Create Projects for better organisation when using Video Assist on different jobs or for breaking things down episode to episode on longer projects.

By default Videos and Frame Grabs are saved to ‘Files → iCloud Drive → Video Assist → Projects → Default’. This can be changed to save ‘On My iPad’ via the iPad ‘Settings’ App. This is recommended if you don’t want your recorded videos automatically uploading to iCloud.

A pre-release demo of ‘Video Assist’ can be viewed here:

What’s New

Version 1.0.7

• Introducing Contact Sheets! Easily generate Contact Sheets from Frame Grabs. Contact Sheets can be created for an entire Shoot Day or you can manually select specific Frame Grabs to be included. Customise your Contact Sheets with a Title, Subtitle and Logo. Supported file types for logos are .heic, .jpeg, .tiff and .png.

• Fixed issue where Metadata would not update for the following shot/take when changed during recording.

• The Audio Meter Output for Live Audio is now processed on a background thread. This should fix a crash that some crew members experienced in certain situations.
