Extra bright display

New EVO series has new super bright screens, exactly 500 nits!

Routed outputs

Up to 12 SDI outputs

Ovide Smart Assist 4 EVO has 12 SDI outputs to send the video to whatever source you need such as monitors, transmitters, streaming equipment...

Of course, Smart Assist can also send video to iDevices via WiFi.

Connect up to 128 cameras

It's uncommon, but when it happens, Smart Assist could save you a lot of time.

Thanks to its 4 inputs (Smart Assist 4 EVO), you can control up to 4 different cameras at the same time, but you could link 8 Smart Assist 4 EVO to control up to 32 cameras, but if your multicam shooting is a total wildness you could also add 4 quadsplits and control up to 128 cameras!

Smart Assist 2 EVO works the same way:
1x Smart Assist 2 EVO: Connect up to 2 cameras
8x Smart Assist 2 EVO: Connect up to 16 cameras
8x Smart Assist 2 EVO + 4x Quadsplits: Connect up to 32 cameras

Routed outputs

Ovide Smart Assist 4 EVO has a built-in video router you to feed and control your complex video village using the touchscreen or an iPhone. Choose a feed and name it and the OLED display will show it next to the BNC connector, this way cabling it's really simple.

Not only the label is displayed, also the video content (live, camera, quad split…).


Work with mains or batteries

Ovide Smart Assist EVO Series can be powered by mains, block batteries and camera batteries (IDX or Anton Bauer mount).

Both EVO systems have hot swap between power sources and an internal UPS system: it will warn when all power sources are disconnected and will run the system for 2 minutes without any power source to put a new battery without any shutdown.

EVO Series also inform about remaining capacity of the battery and running time. In case UPS kicks in, a warning countdown of the remaining UPS time will appear in the display.

Lower power consumption

New EVO Series has a lot less power consumption, just 150w! That's a 40% less power cosumption than Smart Assist 4 Mark II.

WiFi & Bluetooth

Smart Assist EVO have SMA connectors to connect the suitable wifi antennas for every shooting: regular antennas for closer distances or bigger high gain antennas for a longer range of operation.


Down to the smallest detail

Ovide Smart Assist EVO have been designed and carefully planned to the smallest detail:

Ergonomics: All connectors have enough space between them so that it is comfortable to plug and unplug. Video inputs, video outputs, audio and special connectors are clearly separated to quickly locate them.

Organize: Special inserts allow the use of Velcro ties to fasten cables or other accessories.

Cheeseplates: Mount accessories such as mini monitors or wireless video transmitters.

Handles: Made like cheeseplates, they allow to transport your Ovide Smart Assist EVO in a easiest way and also attach accessories.

Quality: Best materials, including top quality connectors brings the highest performance and durability to the unit.

Lighting: You may also connect a reading light to the output, to read scripts or camera reports. You can choose from the front panel between a white or a red light (for sets with dimmed light).
