Vistek’s Pro Video Solutions Group Technical Account Manager Richard Bacsa introduces us to five powerful video accessories that are designed to help improve your video workflow.
Let’s start with one of the most convenient units I’ve had the pleasure of working with. The LaCie Co-Pilot. Early on in my career I’ve dabbled with handling onset data, archiving was always tedious and time consuming. Let me tell you, for projects requiring fast turnaround and seamless backup, without a computer this puppy checks all the right boxes.
Looking to back up on the go? (Backup On-Set Solution) it has an SD card slot and USB port to copy files directly from devices, no laptop needed. Plus, you can sort and manage files on the go with the Copilot BOSS app—less to do once you’re at your desk.

Sennheiser Memory Mic
Next up the Sennheiser Memory Mic. This is a multi faceted device, from Realtors to Doctors, students and Professors can easily record their thoughts and keep it as an audio file or seamlessly sync it with the phone’s video file for a quick and efficient delivery.
With the Memory Mic, you can capture amazing sound in broadcast quality, the perfect accompaniment to your video. Memory Mic initially connects via Bluetooth and you don’t have to worry about getting out of range. The microphone continues to record at any distance from your smartphone. The Memory Mic records up to 4 hours of audio which will automatically synchronize with your smartphone video via a Sennheiser Memory Mic App, downloadable through App Store or Google Play.

X-Rite Color-Checker for Video
I feel that colour checkers are not being utilized as they should be. With today’s cameras shooting Raw/Log where colour is not represented truthfully these devices are super useful. Take a quick shot of it and throw it into your favourite NLE for colour calibration.
X-Rite ColorChecker – Video is a convenient pocket-sized tool to quickly get you to a worry-free, colour balanced and consistently neutral place with ideal camera exposure.
The X-Rite ColorChecker Passport Video will get you to a worry-free, colour balanced and consistently neutral place, with ideal camera exposure, faster than ever before. The ColorChecker Passport Video will help to reduce your video editing time, allowing you to get to your creative look faster.
I’ve seen some fascinating product demos and propositions, most of the time that unit never makes it to market. Not this time! Backed by Dish, SlingStudio is a portable streamer, switcher, recorder. It’s affordability and powerful software makes this unit a must have in a scenario where
With SlingStudio‘s video-grade wireless technology, you can connect a combination of up to 10 smartphones, professional DSLR cameras, or camcorders. SlingStudio’s robust wireless technology operates with minimal interference at distances up to 300 feet – without cables – greatly reducing your setup time.

Insta360 Pro 2
Insta360 Pro 2, the newest addition to their camera family. With improved optics and software this will most certainly turn some heads when it’s set up. The real power of this unit comes in the form of automated stitching and stabilization.
Insta360 Pro 2 The ultimate tool for professional VR filmmaking. Using six lenses, the Pro 2 covers every angle, and captures 2x 8K videos simultaneously. Together, they create immersive, life-like experiences. 60 & 120 fps modes keep action smooth. New in-camera HDR means that lighting stays natural, even when conditions vary in every direction.
