Let BMD VA see the pocket menu scree.

I wonder why something is this is only available in a portkeys monitor even if it not the pocket screen but it works like it. And BMD can do it better,

this is the special feature of the portkeys monitors.
complete remote control of the camera via bluetooth.

I’ve been asking for a few years now for Blackmagic to add wireless camera control to their Video Assists. So, hopefully it will happen with the next versions. As long as people keep requesting it it will happen.
