Why just video assist when you can Smart Assist®? QTAKE HD in a self-contained 22" touchscreen!
Finally, video assist has reached the high quality latest cameras can offer. It was non sense to use old SD video assist with 4k and beyond cameras. We are introducing Smart Assist®, a system developed by Ovide based on QTAKE HD® software. Ovide is the exclusive dealer in Spain for QTAKE HD and has developed a compact self-contained system in a 22" touch screeen.
Before this, QTAKE HD needed bulky computers, capture cards, monitors, and was AC powered. Ovide has developed Smart Assist® hardware that reduces the size to a 22" monitor, 11cm (4 1/3 inch) thick.
Everything needed is inside. QTAKE HD® is world's best video assist software, with a huge list of feature films under its belt: Prometheus, The Hobbit, Spider Man, Underworld, James Bond: Skyfall, Hugo, X-Men, Men In Black 3D,and the list goes on.
High Quality Recording
The recordings are compressed using Apple's ProRes® codec. It is the same codec Arri Alexa® and Final Cut® use. The builtin touchscreen is 22" FullHD (1920x1080), and you can of course use external monitors.
System supports two HD cameras, but you can always link upto 8 systems controlling a total of 16 cameras. All of them will record and payback simultaneously, just with a click.
It can read camera's metadata: filename, roll, take, etc. Therefore, together with the manually entered info (ie cameraman, take rating, shot type...) will be incorporated to the automatically generated PDF camera report, which also includes thumbnails of each clip.
You can use it in 3D shootings without the need of Stereobrain or similar 3D processing hardware. You can adjust convergence live, preview 3D, measure differences, etc.
You can power the system with anything you like, from 10 to 30v. You can use regular camera batteries, block batteries... the 24v input connector is the same Fischer connector found on Arri cameras, this way you don't have to worry about 3pin connector's polarity: if it fits, it will work. The system will automatically switch to whatever power source is available (hot swap), only one source is needed.
Thanks to system optimization, from the instant you press the power button, system will be ready to record in 15 seconds. When you need to find a take, even between thoundands of takes in a tv series season, you can instantly load a clip. The builtin graphic browser is very intuitive and you will find the desired clip the a blink of an eye.
You can color correct, even import LUTs from finishing software sucn as DaVinci. You can compensate for anamorphic lenses, move it, rescale it... You will see it in the touch screen and in the external monitors.
With the amazing built in Composite Room, you can chroma key, blend, wipe, using pre-recorded or imported clips, stills, import CGI imagery.
System will record and playback when camera does: it will detect when camera starts and stops so that you don't need to worry while playing back takes. When playing back one take, the system looks for the matching pair of the other camera and plays them back in sync.
