New build HD video assist for Arricam LT, modern outputs.
IndieAssist mounts directly on the fixing position of the original Arricam LT assist.
It is fitted within minutes. With the same dimensions, but with nowadays HD quality and modern outputs, with global shutter / HDSDI / 12 stops Dynamic Range.
The Indie Assist unit can be set to 4:3 when shooting in 4perf mode
or to 16:9 when shooting in 3 or 2 perf.
This is set internally and can be changed by a technician when changing movement.
Indieassist has no desqueeze option build in, main reason is that most monitors on-set have the de-squeeze option build in anyway. Also onscreen information is not realised yet, this will be done at a later stage.
The latest version has the controls build-in and does not need to be controlled via a remote control.
Both manuals are available for download. You can use the remote on both versions.

indieASSIST is a HD video assist system for ARRICAM-LT film cameras. With a sensor of
1920 x 1080 pixels, the resolution of the video assist is noticeable higher than of
conventional systems. This results in exceptional image quality.
The system works internally with 14 bit pixel depth and outputs HDSDI 4:2:2 10 bit. It
facilitates better judgment of the scene including focus and actors with high visible detail
in shadow and highlight areas.
indieASSIST provides a superior image for the director and cinematographer on set,
allowing them to judge each take while shooting a film. The high resolution preview
images show true colours and sharp, high contrast images.
The video assist system can output both 16:9 and 4:3 images with only one internal lens. Other
features are various white balance presets, automatic or manual exposure control,
flicker free operation and a simple user interface.
Focuspulling from the video image is possible, bear in mind that Indieassist is an assisting tool.
It is not the final image, that is recorded on 35mm film stock.
