Video Assist 7" 12G downscale output

We're thinking about getting one of these at work but I couldn't find any info on if it can take a UHD input and downscale it to FHD for the output. I know the VA 4k can't, but does anyone know if it's possible with the 7" 12G? Thanks! I've tried emailing Blackmagic Support a few times but usually don't get a reply...

Only the original VA could downscale a UHD signal to HD, as it was an HD monitor
/recorder. The new VA’s, including the 12G I do not believe can down or upscale, what comes in, goes out.
Cheers

Thanks Denny! Blackmagic support got back to me a couple hours after posting this and confirmed what you said, that the 12G doesn't downscale unfortunately. Hopefully they add that as well as allowing you to apply luts to scopes, change the waveform scale so that Voltage isn't prioritized, and calibrate the screen. For now we'll most likely pass on a Video Assist until those are added.
