Blackmagic Design has released Blackmagic Video Assist 3.3 update, which adds Webcam support to the USB-C connection. Furthermore, this update allows users to connect Video Assist to computers and live stream video in Full HD 1080p using any major streaming software or platform. Supported platforms and services include OBS, YouTube Live, Facebook Live, Skype, Zoom, Twitch and more.

Live Stream Your Video Production Shoot to Clients Remotely

When connecting your Video Assist recorder/monitor to your computer the software is tricked into seeing it as a common webcam, when it’s actually streaming the incoming SDI or HDMI source from a camera or playing back previously recorded content.

With the new webcam support users can even live stream the video shoot to their clients from a remote location, anywhere in the world.
