Blackmagic URSA Broadcast Fly Pack Kit (Lens / Fiber / Camera / Viewfinder)

Introducing URSA Broadcast, the world’s most affordable and most flexible professional broadcast camera. URSA Broadcast is two cameras in one, an incredible field camera for ENG and programming work, as well as a professional studio camera! URSA Broadcast is perfect for traditional broadcasters because it uses the lenses and batteries you already own, and it also eliminates weird media cards and file formats found on traditional cameras. It records onto regular SD cards and uses the same common file formats found on broadcast media management systems and most NLE software. Plus URSA Broadcast is perfect for web broadcasters because it works with both older after market HD lenses and inexpensive photo lenses. No other broadcast camera is more flexible and more affordable!

Two Cameras in One - Switch instantly between live work or field shooting!

URSA Broadcast is two cameras in one! The compact design, familiar controls and broadcast camera features are ideal for ENG style shooting and vital for working quickly when you’re trying to capture breaking news. Whether you’re in the studio or out in the field, URSA Broadcast will give you incredible image quality, accurate skin tones and vibrant colors that are far superior to cameras costing ten times more. The key is URSA Broadcast's new extended video mode that produces pictures you don’t need to color grade so you can shoot, edit and get stories on air faster than ever before. URSA Broadcast is also the first camera that finally lets AV and web broadcasters afford a true professional broadcast solution that’s dramatically better than DSLRs!

Standard Media and File Formats - Work faster by eliminating expensive media and video transcodes!

URSA Broadcast is the first professional broadcast camera designed to work with standard media cards and file formats that are compatible with virtually all broadcast systems and editing software. URSA Broadcast records onto inexpensive standard SD cards, UHS-II cards and CFast cards, and records 1080i or 2160p video into standard .mov files, with .mxf to be added in future updates. URSA Broadcast records using DNx145, DNx220X or ProRes so the files will work with your existing broadcast systems and workflows. You also get a B4 lens mount that works with your existing lenses, or you can swap it for optional EF, F and PL lens mounts so you can use standard photographic lenses. If you’re building a complete broadcast camera chain, the optional URSA Viewfinder, URSA Studio Viewfinder and SMPTE fiber converters feature familiar controls and design, so they operate exactly as experienced camera operators expect. URSA Broadcast helps you get the most value out of your investment in cameras, lenses and accessories, which means you’ll save time and money, so the camera virtually pays for itself!

Broadcast B4 Lens Mount - Use your existing high quality HD lenses or new Ultra HD lenses!

With par-focal B4 lenses, you don’t need to refocus as you follow the action!

The broadcast B4 lens mount on URSA Broadcast features high performance cinema quality optics with spherical aberration correction specifically designed to match the camera’s sensor. The ⅔” mount lets you use existing HD lenses or Ultra HD lenses. Many high quality HD lenses can be used at resolutions well beyond HD, all the way up to 2.5K or 3K. Because B4 lenses are par-focal and have a very wide depth of field, the image stays in focus as you zoom in and out, so you don't need to chase focus as you shoot. That lets you work much faster because you don’t need to change lenses or refocus between close up, medium and wide shots, which is perfect when you’re following the action in fast paced sport! You also get full electronic B4 lens control so you can adjust the focus, iris and zoom using the camera’s controls, or remotely from an ATEM switcher using the SDI camera control protocol.

Work in HD or Ultra HD - Incredible 4K image sensor for wide dynamic range and wide depth of field

URSA Broadcast features an incredible 4K image sensor and a new extended video mode with better dynamic range and color fidelity. The image sensor is designed for both HD and Ultra HD so you get amazing texture and detail, accurate skin tones, vibrant color and high dynamic range video, all without the need for post production. That means you can shoot, edit and get stories on air fast! The high resolution sensor is a huge advantage, even when working in HD, because you get sub pixel image processing and superior anti-aliasing for super sharp images. URSA Broadcast is a future proof camera that’s versatile enough to use on any HD or Ultra HD production!

Built in Optical ND Filters - High quality neutral density filters with IR compensation

URSA Broadcast features high quality neutral density (ND) filters that let you quickly reduce the amount of light entering the camera. The ¼, 1/16th and 1/64th stop filters have been specifically designed to match the image sensor and color science of URSA Broadcast, providing you with additional latitude and better colorimetry, even under harsh lighting conditions. This lets you use different combinations of aperture and shutter angle, in a wider range of situations. The IR filters have been designed to evenly filter both optical and IR wavelengths. This eliminates the IR contamination usually associated with most ND filters. The ND filters are true optical filters with a precision mechanism that quickly moves them into place when the ND filter dial is turned. The filter settings can be displayed as either a fraction, number, or stop reduction on the LCD.

Non Stop Recording - Works with both standard CFast and SD card media!

Choose the media that works best for you!

SD and UHS‑II cards are inexpensive and commonly available, perfect for recording DNx or ProRes Ultra HD files or RAW HD files. CFast cards are ideal for recording RAW.

URSA Broadcast features both dual CFast 2.0 recorders and dual SD/UHS-II card recorders so you can choose the media that works best for you. Both types of media are standard, non-proprietary, inexpensive and readily available at most computer and camera stores. You can record 10-bit broadcast quality DNxHD 145, DNxHD 220X or ProRes files with metadata, making URSA Broadcast compatible with virtually all editing software. That means URSA Broadcast is easy to integrate and fit in to your existing broadcast systems. You can even record lossless 12-bit CinemaDNG RAW files for high quality programming and post production workflows. With dual slots for each media type, URSA Broadcast gives you redundant recorders and non stop recording! When the first card is full, recording automatically continues onto the next card so you can swap one card while recording continues on the other.

Super Tough and Redundant Design - Extremely tough and lightweight magnesium metal design

URSA Broadcast features a super strong, lightweight magnesium alloy body that’s perfectly balanced and designed to be comfortable enough for all day use. Like traditional broadcast cameras, it features familiar externally mounted mechanical switches and controls that give you direct access to the most important camera settings. The controls are laid out logically, making them easy to remember and locate by feel, so you can adjust settings without having to look at the buttons or take the camera off your shoulder. You also get a 4” foldout touchscreen for monitoring, or controlling the camera via a revolutionary software interface that provides full redundancy for all of the external controls and camera functions. There are even redundant controls for the power switch! URSA Broadcast also includes full size standard connections for audio via XLR connectors, SDI via BNC connectors and broadcast power input via a standard 4 pin XLR 12V DC connector!

Familiar Broadcast Control - Quickly change settings without taking the camera off your shoulder!

URSA Broadcast features independent controls for direct access to the most important camera settings. Buttons, switches and dials are laid out in a logical order that makes them easy to find by feel while using the viewfinder. This means you’ll be able to adjust settings, add an ND filter or even change frame rate without having to fold out the touchscreen or take the camera off your shoulder.

Status Display - See critical shooting information in bright daylight!

The status display is a high visibility LCD screen that’s designed to be easily seen, even in bright light! The status display shows record timecode, locked timecode and reference timecode, along with the current shooting frame rate, shutter angle, aperture, white balance, gain and iris. It also features a battery indicator, card recording status and audio meters for monitoring levels. The screen’s backlight can be turned on when you’re shooting in dimly lit locations, and off when you’re shooting outdoors and in bright light to increase contrast, making it easy to read under any condition!

Dramatic Slow Motion - Capture fast action with smooth flowing slow motion!

Whether you’re shooting a sporting event or breaking news story, URSA Broadcast can shoot super smooth, crystal clear slow motion video. To shoot slow motion video, URSA Broadcast records at higher frame rates and plays back at standard video frame rates. You can set up your preferred high speed frame rate using the camera’s on screen menus and then switch between standard sync speed and off speed frame rates with the touch of a button on the side of the camera. URSA Broadcast can capture full resolution Ultra HD at up to 60 frames per second.

Broadcast Quality Audio - Built in broadcast quality sound recording

URSA Broadcast has a high quality microphone and professional audio recorder built in so you don’t have to carry any extra sound equipment! The built in stereo microphone can be used for recording or you can connect professional microphones using the two XLR mic inputs. The XLR connections have 48V of switchable phantom power so you can plug in everything from shotgun to wireless clip on mics. With two microphone inputs, you can record a reporter in the field wearing a lapel or handheld mic, while also capturing ambient sounds from the second input. You can also record the same microphone to both channels using different levels to avoid clipping from unexpected loud noises in the field. URSA Broadcast also features external knobs for adjusting levels and onscreen meters so you can trim audio levels even when shoulder mounted.

Professional Studio Camera - Transform URSA Broadcast into the ultimate studio camera!

URSA Broadcast has built in remote control, color correction, talkback, tally and other features designed to make it the ultimate studio camera for live switched production. It can be remote controlled via SDI using the Blackmagic SDI Camera Control protocol. You can add the optional URSA Studio Viewfinder, Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter and Studio Fiber Converter to get the exact same workflow and features of studio cameras costing hundreds of thousands of dollars. But best of all, when the live production is complete, you can quickly transform URSA Broadcast back into a normal shooting camera! URSA Broadcast lets you get the most out of your investment in cameras and lenses because you can use it every day out in the field or in the studio! That’s the ultimate in flexibility because every URSA Broadcast camera you own can be used on live programs, allowing you to easily handle very large live jobs with lots of cameras, all without any extra equipment rental costs!

Professional Connections
Eliminate custom cables with standard television industry connections that work with regular cables

Blackmagic URSA Broadcast features the latest technology and connections such as 12G-SDI. All connections use standard broadcast connectors so you don't need expensive, proprietary cables that are hard to find. This means you can get cables from your favorite supplier or even make your own! You get multi rate12G-SDI connections for video output and return program feed input. Both connections automatically switch speed so they work with all HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60 over a single cable! You also get HD-SDI monitoring out, 2 LANC inputs, balanced XLR audio with phantom power, and timecode/reference input. On the front right side of the camera is a 12 pin Hirose connector for broadcast lens control which can both power and control SD, HD and Ultra HD lenses with both analog and digital control. There’s also a 4 pin XLR 12V DC power output and HD-SDI monitor output that can be used with an URSA Viewfinder, URSA Studio Viewfinder, any viewfinder or external monitor you’d like.

Works with Low Cost Lenses - Compatible with B4, PL, EF and F mount lenses!

URSA Broadcast features an interchangeable lens mount so you can easily swap the included B4 lens mount for an EF, PL or even F mount. That means if you’re just starting out you can use low cost, high quality EF photographic lenses and then change to more expensive lenses when you’re ready. Using an EF, PL or F mount lens is a fantastic option when permanently rigging and mounting cameras in locked off positions on set, so you don't tie up broadcast lenses for camera positions without operators. Because the lens mounts are easy to change, you can also quickly reconfigure cameras from job to job. URSA Broadcast comes with a B4 mount already installed, and you can also purchase optional PL, EF and F mounts separately as needed. With URSA Broadcast, you get a single camera that works with virtually all professional lenses so you can choose precisely the lens you need!

Advanced Blackmagic OS - Advanced operating system and user interface allows access to all camera settings fast!

URSA Broadcast features the advanced Blackmagic OS with an intuitive user interface that lets you use simple tap and swipe gestures. Plus, you get many features from the URSA Mini digital film camera if you need to do more advanced programming work! You can set up the camera, enter metadata and more. Plus, the software duplicates all of the physical buttons and switches on the camera so you get full redundancy! The unique heads up display puts commonly used functions at your fingertips so you can tap on a control and quickly make adjustments without having to navigate through complex menus. The digital slate makes entering metadata fast with its built in dictionary, predictive text entry and on screen keyboard.

Flexible Power - Compatible with industry standard batteries and power

 

URSA Broadcast includes a 4-pin XLR industry standard power connector that works from 12V to 20V for external power supplies and battery packs. The standard power connector also means it’s easy to use the camera with all of your existing power supplies and batteries. All URSA cameras use the same battery power connector and mounting points on the rear of the camera so you can use a wide range of battery plates from manufacturers such as IDX, Blueshape, Anton Bauer and more. For ease of installation, you can also add the optional Blackmagic URSA VLock Battery Plate or Blackmagic URSA Gold Battery Plate for using popular V‑Mount and Gold Mount batteries, because they include a power plug that's designed to plug directly into URSA Broadcast.

Blackmagic Design URSA Broadcast Camera G2 6K Camera


Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2

The world’s most flexible broadcast camera!

The new Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 is an incredibly powerful camera designed for both traditional and online broadcasters. The 3 cameras in 1 design allows it to work as a 4K production camera, a 4K studio camera or a 6K digital film camera! It's a perfect solution for broadcasters because it uses the lenses and batteries you already own! You can record to common SD cards, UHS-II cards, CFast 2.0 cards or external USB disks, using common file formats such as H.265, ProRes and Blackmagic RAW. This means it's compatible with all video software and broadcast media management systems. You can even change the lens mount! No other broadcast camera is so flexible!

Broadcast Production Camera

The perfect solution for broadcasters, URSA Broadcast G2 includes ENG camera controls positioned around the camera so you can locate them by feel. It also features a low light sensor so you get amazing images using natural light. That's the perfect combination for broadcast news and programming.

Live Studio Camera

URSA Broadcast includes an advanced YRGB color corrector built in and full remote camera control. You can use B4 ENG lenses, large studio box lenses, or even change the lens mount and use any lens! Plus the optional Blackmagic focus and zoom demands let you control the lens from the tripod handles.

Digital Cinema Camera

URSA Broadcast G2 includes an advanced 6K digital film sensor, and you can change the lens mount! Use a PL mount for digital film lenses or EF for photo lenses. Plus the high dynamic range, great low light performance and Blackmagic RAW means you get a true "Hollywood" quality digital film camera.

Get Digital Film Quality for Broadcast

The large 6K sensor combined with Blackmagic generation 5 color science gives you the same imaging technology used in digital film cameras. This means broadcasters can now use digital cinema quality in broadcast! The 6K sensor features a resolution of 6144 x 3456 so it's flexible enough for broadcast and digital film work. When using B4 lenses, you get a 4K window of the sensor for Ultra HD broadcast use. Then if you change to a PL or EF lens mount, you can use the full 6K resolution of the sensor for digital film! With 13 stops of dynamic range, you get darker blacks and brighter whites, so it's perfect for color correction. Using digital film in broadcast is a revolution in image quality!

Exceptional Low Light Performance

The new URSA Broadcast features incredible low light performance so you can shoot using ambient light or even under moonlight! In advanced cameras, ISO is a measurement of the image sensor’s sensitivity to light. The Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 features gain from -12dB (100 ISO) up to +36dB (25,600 ISO) so it's optimized to reduce grain and noise in images, while maintaining the full dynamic range of the sensor. The primary native ISO is 400, which is ideal for use under studio lighting. Then the secondary high base ISO of 3200 is perfect when shooting in dimly lit environments. The gain can be set via a camera switch, the LCD menu or remotely using the SDI remote camera control protocol.

Compatible with B4 Broadcast Lenses (Standard)

The URSA Broadcast G2 features a B4 broadcast lens mount that includes optics specifically designed to match the camera’s sensor. The B4 lens mount lets you use modern Ultra HD lenses or lower cost HD lenses. Older HD lenses often feature resolutions well beyond HD, so you get great quality at low cost! B4 lenses are fantastic because they are par-focal, so the image stays in focus as you zoom in and out, so you don't need to constantly chase focus as you shoot. That lets you work much faster! You also get full electronic lens control to adjust focus, iris and zoom using the camera’s controls, or remotely! Plus if you want to use alternative lenses, you can change the mount to PL, EF and more!

Built In Optical ND Filters

URSA Broadcast G2 features high quality neutral density (ND) filters that let you quickly reduce the amount of light entering the camera. The ¼, 1/16th and 1/64th stop filters have been specifically designed to match the image sensor and color science of URSA Broadcast G2, providing you with additional latitude and better colorimetry. This lets you use different combinations of aperture and shutter angle, in a wider range of situations. The IR filters have been designed to evenly filter both optical and IR wavelengths, eliminating IR contamination. Plus the filter status on the LCD can be displayed as a fraction, number, or stop reduction!

Use Common Media and File Formats!

URSA Broadcast is designed to work with standard file formats that are used by all broadcast systems and editing software. You can record in ProRes 422 HQ and ProRes 422 into QuickTime files. The new Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 model can even record into H.265 for incredibly small files at 60:1 to 285:1 compression ratios, in 10-bit broadcast quality. Plus you can record to Blackmagic RAW files, a revolutionary new format designed to capture and preserve the quality of the sensor data from the camera. That means you get the perfect range of file formats designed for all types of workflows.

Dual Media Slots for Non‑Stop Recording

With dual CFast 2.0 recorders and dual SD/UHS-II card recorders, you can choose the media that's best for you! Both types of media are standard, inexpensive and readily available at computer and camera stores. Plus with dual media slots, URSA Broadcast gives you non stop recording! When a card is full, recording automatically continues onto the next card so you can swap a full card while recording continues. You get enough speed to record high quality ProRes and H.265 video file formats, even when working in Ultra HD at high frame rates. That means URSA Broadcast G2 is easy to integrate into your existing broadcast systems. You can even record 12-bit Blackmagic RAW cinema files!

USB-C for Recording Direct to External Media Disks

The Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 features a high speed USB-C expansion port on the rear of the camera that allows you to record to external disks or connect to a wide range of accessories. If you plug in a large and low cost external USB flash disk, you can record ProRes, H.265 or even high quality 12-bit Blackmagic RAW files for later editing and color correction. That means you can just move the disk to a computer to work, and you don't need to waste time with file copying. Plus the USB port will power the disk that’s plugged in! You can even plug in optional focus and zoom demands to allow full lens control.

Program Video Monitoring

If you're doing live production, sometimes you need to monitor program video back from the switcher. Simply press the camera’s PGM button and the viewfinder will switch from the camera display to the program return feed from the switcher. A built in speaker also lets you monitor the switcher audio as well. Program return is a fantastic feature as sometimes on large live shows, camera operators can be left waiting a long time for their camera to be used, so program return lets them watch the show while they wait. This means that even if the camera operator is a large distance away from the switcher, they can still keep up with what is happening and remain alert.

Standard Television Industry Connections

Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 features the latest technology and connections such as 12G-SDI. This includes 12G-SDI connections for both video output and return program feed input. The 12G-SDI connections are multi rate and switch between all HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60. Other connections include a headphone connection, USB-C, balanced XLR audio with phantom power, and timecode/reference input. There's also a front mounted 12 pin Hirose connector for broadcast lens control which can also power the lens. Plus for connecting a viewfinder or on set monitor there's even an HD-SDI monitoring output and a broadcast style 4 pin XLR 12V DC power output!

Professional Audio Connections and Built In Microphones

URSA Broadcast G2 has a high quality microphone and professional audio recorder built in so you don’t have to carry any extra sound equipment! That means you can use the built in stereo microphone or you can connect external microphones. The XLR connections have 48V phantom power so you can plug in everything from shotgun to wireless clip on mics. You can also select to link audio inputs on the camera so you can plug in lapel microphones that often only have a single mono connection, if you want to record the mic onto both channels of the recorded file. URSA Broadcast G2 also features knobs for adjusting levels and onscreen meters so you can trim audio levels even when shoulder mounted.

Get Studio Camera Control via SDI

All Blackmagic Design ATEM switchers can control cameras via a protocol embedded into the URSA Broadcast G2's SDI video connections. Setup is easy because all ATEM switchers broadcast control commands from the switcher’s SDI program output to the camera via the SDI program input. The switcher can perform color correction, tally and lens control and these are sent to all cameras. All you need to do is select the correct camera number and it all works. This means someone can manage the image color and gain so the camera operator is not distracted trying to adjust their camera, and they are then free to focus on framing the shots.

Change to PL, EF and F Lens Mounts (optional)!

URSA Broadcast G2 features an interchangeable lens mount so you can easily swap the included B4 lens mount for an EF, PL or even F mount. URSA Broadcast G2 comes with a B4 mount already installed, plus a spare EF mount is included. That means if you’re starting out you can change the mount and use low cost photographic lenses. Photographic lenses are incredible quality because they're designed for high resolution photography. You can also purchase optional PL and F mounts separately. If you're shooting for digital film, the PL mount is best as it's the most common lens mount for cinema lenses. With URSA Broadcast G2, you get a single camera that works with virtually all modern lenses!

Built in Timecode Generator

All models of Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 have a built in time of day timecode generator, so you can sync all the cameras and then do multi-cam editing later because all the recordings will have the same timecode. Simply plug in an external timecode generator to the BNC timecode input and the camera will automatically detect timecode and lock the internal generator. Now each camera can start and stop recording and the shots from all cameras will have matched timecode. Imagine shooting a music festival with multiple cameras! Then the DaVinci Resolve sync bin can be used to automatically sync the recordings and display them in a multiview for easy editing.

Focus and Zoom Demands (Optional)

The optional zoom and focus demands allow you to use photography lenses for live production! The focus and zoom demands have USB-C connections so they control the lens via the camera’s electronic lens control. Each zoom and focus demand has 2 USB-C ports, so you can daisy chain them then connect to the camera with a single USB connection. The design has an incredibly precise feel so you get very fine lens control, and you can frame and adjust the lens without taking your hands off the tripod handles. The buttons can be customized so you can assign different camera functions to them! Plus, hardware is included for mounting the focus and zoom demands onto tripod handles.

Add Viewfinders, SMPTE Fiber and Lens Mounts

There's a wide range of accessories that are specifically designed to work perfectly with URSA Broadcast G2. However, a shoulder mount kit, V-Lock battery plate and top handle are included so you don't need to purchase anything extra! Plus you get a spare EF lens mount if you don't own a B4 lens and would like to start out using a photography lens. You can add the optional Blackmagic URSA Viewfinder, or for live production you can add a Blackmagic URSA Studio Viewfinder! There's also an optional fiber converter that can power the camera from 2 km away via the single SMPTE fiber! For long duration recording, URSA Mini Recorder gives you the option to record to external SSDs!

SSDs such as the latest 7mm U.2 NVMe disks are super fast, delivering data transfer speeds of up to 900 MB/s! This blazing fast performance allows you longer recording times for full resolution 4K and 6K 12-bit Blackmagic RAW files in the highest quality Q0 encoding. The unique design of the Blackmagic URSA Mini Recorder means it attaches directly to the back of your URSA Broadcast G2 between the camera and the battery. It’s controlled via the USB-C so you don’t have to worry about manually starting or stopping the SSD recorder.

Wireless Bluetooth Camera Remote Control

If you're positioning the camera on the end of a boom, or in another hard to reach location, you can get full control via Bluetooth from up to 30 feet away. You can download the Blackmagic Camera Control app for your iPad or use third party apps such as Bluetooth+ or tRigger on your iOS and Android devices. There’s even a free developer SDK with sample code available from the Blackmagic Design developer website, so you can create your own remote camera control and digital slate solutions! Imagine building an app that can jam sync timecode and trigger all cameras to record at the same time. The possibilities are endless!

Compatible with Industry Standard Batteries

All URSA cameras support a wide range of battery plates from manufacturers such as IDX, Blueshape, Anton Bauer and more. A V-Lock battery plate is installed on the camera, or you can change to an optional Blackmagic URSA Gold Battery Plate. All Blackmagic battery plates are designed to mount directly onto the camera.

Blackmagic Design Camera Fiber Converter


The Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter attaches to the back of your URSA Mini or URSA Broadcast camera. In addition to converting all of the audio, video, camera control and talkback into fiber, it also adds professional studio camera controls to the back of your camera. You get control for return feeds, dual intercom controls with the ability to mix in program audio, record, focus and iris controls, headset connectors, audio and more. The camera converter also includes a VLock mount plate on the top for attaching accessories such as a professional Blackmagic Studio Viewfinder. The Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter has connections for your Ultra HD camera feed, 3 HD return feeds, full remote camera control, PTZ, multiple channels of talkback, tally and more!

Extend and fully power cameras up to 2 kmaway using an open standard SMPTE fiber cable!

The Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter and Blackmagic Studio Fiber Converter convert standard television industry connections for video, audio, power, talkback, and tally into a single SMPTE fiber optic cable. This allows cameras to be placed up to 2 km away from a studio or outside broadcast truck using a single convenient and incredibly durable cable. The Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter also adds familiar broadcast studio camera controls to the rear of the camera, plus additional connections so you can use it with the talkback systems and switchers you already have. The Blackmagic fiber converters feature 12G-SDI and are designed to work with all HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60. Now you can transform professional cameras such as URSA Broadcast and URSA Mini into a complete professional studio camera with all of the features you need for high end work!

Get cameras much closer to the action!

If you’re working in a studio or out at a large sporting venue, you often need to place cameras far apart. While SDI connections are common, the limited range of SDI makes it hard to use it over long distances. Traditionally, you would need to run multiple cables and expensive extenders for power, talkback, tally, video and audio. This makes set up incredibly complex and increases the chances of a technical problem. Now you can solve this problem by converting all essential connections and power into a single convenient SMPTE fiber cable that can run incredibly long distances. 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. Best of all, SMPTE fiber is a global broadcast industry standard so you can use cables and connection points that are commonly available. Blackmagic fiber converters are also affordable, so traditional broadcasters, new web broadcasters, AV producers, houses of worship and educators can all use the same high end broadcast technology!

Built in multi layer fail safe instantlycuts power to eliminate danger

Blackmagic fiber converters work with standard SMPTE 311M hybrid electrical and fiber optic cables with standard SMPTE 304 connectors on each end. These cables feature a 2 way fiber pair, data pair and power pair, along with a central strength member that gives it the needed durability for continuous use. Once plugged in, the Blackmagic Studio Fiber Converter automatically performs safety checks and then powers up, sending an industry standard 200 volts of power over the SMPTE cable for the camera and accessories. This means you can install cameras in remote locations without having to worry about power drops over long distances. Both the studio and camera converters at each end have dedicated micro controllers that continuously monitor power status. The converters communicate with each other to ensure that both a stable optical signal is present and that the power supply is operating within safe parameters. If a damaged cable or a earth leak is detected, the power is instantly shut down to eliminate any danger to personnel.

Transform broadcast camerasinto dedicated studio cameras!

Studio cameras are typically operated from the rear of the camera, but broadcast cameras usually have controls on the side of the camera. To solve this problem, the Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter adds support for SMPTE fiber to your camera along with a wide range of controls and features to the rear of the camera, transforming it into a professional studio camera. You get 2 separate broadcast standard 5 pin talkback connections, 3 return video feeds, 2 extra audio inputs, connections for PTZ and trackers, plus additional DC and D-tap outputs for powering accessories. With all these extra controls added to the rear of the camera, you can operate the camera in the same way as traditional studio cameras!

Super fast, low latency ethernetlink for video, audio and control!

The Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter and the Blackmagic Studio Fiber Converter use IP video because the SMPTE fiber connection is an open standard 10G Ethernet link. That means all of your video and return feeds are IP video based using high end, lossless broadcast quality 10-bit video encoding and decoding. All other connections such as talkback, tally, camera control and lens control are also converted to low latency IP so you get incredibly reliable performance and high quality. Using IP video means the Blackmagic fiber converters are future proof and ready for customization using high speed Ethernet infrastructure in future!

Two dual channel talkbackintercoms with backup!

The Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter and Blackmagic Studio Fiber Converter provide 2 dual channel digital talkback connections that are compatible with professional 5 pin XLR talkback headsets. The camera converter even has convenient controls for mixing in program return audio with your talkback headset so you can adjust the volume as needed while talking to the rest of the crew. The talkback intercoms can be used for both production and engineering. In addition, there is a backup channel available for troubleshooting in case the fiber link is down. This backup talkback channel automatically switches over and uses the data pair in the SMPTE cable if the fiber is not working. The Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter also includes a standard 10 pin connection for tracker talkback, which is perfect when both headset connections are in use and you need to feed an additional talkback connection through to your crane operator.
