Video Assist as a audio monitor

PostWed Nov 23, 2022 9:24 am

I need a way to monitor the audio channels on a SDI feed.
A friend suggested using a Video Assist to see levels of the audio channels.

Can anyone on the forum confirm if it is possible to see audio meters for 16 channels of audio at the same time on the Video Assist 3G 5"?

I have not been able to read anything on the specs saying if it is possible or not.

You can monitor 16 channels of audio with the Blackmagic SmartScope Duo.
