Blackmagic URSA Broadcast Camera

New Product

 

The world’s most affordable and flexible professional HD and Ultra HD broadcast camera for live production and studio programs, at the same price of a DSLR camera!

Blackmagic Design today announced Blackmagic URSA Broadcast, a new high end, professional broadcast camera designed for both studio programming and live production. URSA Broadcast works with existing B4 broadcast HD lenses, can be used for both HD and Ultra HD production, features a 4K sensor, extended video dynamic range, traditional external controls and buttons, built in optical ND filters, dual CFast and dual SD card recorders, and much more.

URSA Broadcast is like two cameras in one, an incredible field camera for ENG and programming work, as well as a professional studio camera. The camera features traditional broadcast controls along with exceptional image quality, all in a compact design that is ideal for fast paced, fast turn around production work. The key is URSA Broadcast’s new extended video mode which captures incredible looking video with accurate skin tones and vibrant colors. That means customers don’t have to color correct images before going to air, making URSA Broadcast perfect for news, live sports, studio talk and game shows and more. URSA Broadcast lets customers shoot, edit and get stories on air faster than ever before. 

“URSA Broadcast lets customers get the most out of their investment in cameras and lenses because it can be re-purposed and used on every type of project, whether it’s out in the field or in the studio. It’s like getting two cameras in one.” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “URSA Broadcast is exciting because it makes high end broadcast camera technology available to everyone from AV and web producers all the way up to professional broadcasters, for the same price as a common DSLR!”

Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter and Blackmagic Studio Fiber Converter

New Products

 

Now customers can extend and power cameras from up to 2 km away, all over a single SMPTE fiber optic cable. 

Blackmagic Design today announced the all new Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter and Blackmagic Studio Fiber Converter which convert standard television industry connections for video, audio, power, talkback, tally and more into a single SMPTE hybrid electrical and fiber optic cable. This allows cameras to be placed up to 2 km away from a studio or outside broadcast truck using a single cable.

Whether it’s in a studio or out at a large sporting venue, customers working in live production often need to place their cameras both far away and close to the action. SDI connections are common, but they have limited range. Plus, when working in large theaters or massive stadiums, it can also be hard to find locations with power. Running multiple cables for power, talkback, tally, video and audio feeds normally requires expensive interfaces and extenders. This can make set up incredibly complex and increases the chances of a technical error. 

The Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter and Blackmagic Studio Fiber Converter solve this problem by converting all essential connections and full camera power into a single convenient SMPTE hybrid electrical and fiber optic cable that can be run long distances up to 2 km away. That means cameras can be placed anywhere and connected back to broadcast trucks parked outside of a venue or back to a central control room in a studio. 

“The new Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter and Blackmagic Studio Fiber Converter enable customers to finally create a complete professional broadcast camera chain that’s actually affordable,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “It’s exciting because the new converters, along with URSA Broadcast and the upcoming ATEM Camera Control Panel, make it affordable for professional broadcasters to use more cameras than ever. This also means that web producers, educators, AV companies and anyone else that wants to create high quality programs can now afford the same professional technology that high end broadcasters have used for years!”

The ATEM 1 M/E Advanced Panel features the latest broadcast technology, smooth professional buttons, knobs, T-Bar fader and joystick, a built in LCD and more. The ATEM 1 M/E Advanced Panel is available at a new low price from Blackmagic Design resellers worldwide. 

The ATEM 1 M/E Advanced Panel is designed to give customers a new elegantly designed control panel that ensures precise control over their ATEM live production switcher when producing complex live television programs with multiple cameras and sources. The compact size fits in a standard equipment rack, making it perfect for use in fly away kits, outside broadcast trucks, and at live events with limited space. 

“The new ATEM 1 M/E Advanced Panel is exciting because it gives customers total control of up to 20 inputs and four mix effects rows, all in a compact design that can be taken virtually anywhere,” said Grant Petty, Blackmagic Design CEO. “The built in LCD along with the dynamic button screens, customizable colors and labels takes the ATEM 1 M/E Advanced to a whole new level of design and features for live production. We’ve worked hard to build a state of the art panel that will enable customers to work on their live programs faster and more accurately than ever before!”

In addition, the ATEM 4 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K features 2 Ultra HD multi viewers, full 2D DVE, built in SuperSource compositing engines with 4 picture in picture DVEs, full re-synchronization on each input and much more.

In addition, Blackmagic Design has also announced a free software upgrade that adds all of the same new features to the previous ATEM 2 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K model. That means customers using the ATEM 2 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K get twice as many mix effects rows and 16 new next generation ATEM Advanced Chroma Keyers added to their switcher, absolutely free

The all new ATEM 4 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K lets customers create live, switched, high frame rate HD and Ultra HD programs at up to 60 frames per second. Featuring advanced 12G-SDI technology, customers can connect the latest 2160p60 cameras using a single, standard SDI cable. The multi rate 12G-SDI connections automatically switch to 6G-SDI, 3G-SDI and HD-SDI so the switcher is compatible with existing HD equipment. The ATEM 4 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K can be used to master programs in 2160p60 while simultaneously outputting them in HD with realtime down conversion. It’s a future proof switcher that lets broadcasters start building a library of amazing Ultra HD content, even if they need to continue broadcasting 1080HD today. 

“The new ATEM 4 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K gives customers 4 mix effects rows and 16 amazing new ATEM Advanced Chroma Keyers in the same design as our previous 2 M/E switcher,” said Grant Petty, Blackmagic Design CEO. “Customers can now get a high end live production switcher with more power and creative effects than ever before so they can produce incredible television programs. Plus, existing ATEM 2 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K customers can upgrade and get these incredible new features for free!”
