Blackmagic Design URSA Broadcast: A New Level
All hands on deckThe URSA Mini Pro from Blackmagic Design was a powerhouse and a half. 4K video, perfect for broadcasters or filmmakers and flexible with multiple lens types. It shot at 60fps and had unreal smooth footage. It’s ideal for professionals, but what if it was a little more accessible for the smaller outfits?
Introducing the Blackmagic Design URSA Broadcast, designed specifically for those within TV news, reality TV shows, online broadcasting or smaller scale film projects like documentaries. This is the camera that should be accompanying you on the field or in the studio.
Break the News
Same Quality, Cheaper Price The URSA Broadcast is perfect for capturing breaking news, with its smaller size and lightweight frame, capturing at 4K has never been easier, bringing another level to stories on the scene. Vibrant colours and accurate skin tones give you the kind of quality that is usually only available – and with the URSA Broadcast is sometimes actually superior – in cameras costing ten times the price.
This is thanks to Blackmagic Design’s extended video mode, which produces images that don’t need colour grading, allowing you to eliminate part of the workflow that usually slows everything down, letting you actually break the news, rather than cling to coattails.
Top Quality 4K Sensor
Brilliant Resolution Blackmagic have fitted a 4K image sensor, giving you a wide dynamic range and depth of field that just can’t be beaten by other cameras. The sensor is designed for both HD and Ultra HD so you can capture every detail, every texture to bring your stories and shows to life. With brilliant resolution being outputted by the sensor, you can the similar quality sub pixel image processing and anti-aliasing for sharp images, even when working at lower quality resolutions.
All Your Storage, No Exceptions
SD, CFast, it doesn't matter! Making the URSA Broadcast even easier is the new option to use almost any sort of media card. Inexpensive SD Cards that you can buy anywhere to professional grade CFast cards. Recording is also flexible based on what storage is inside, with the option to record 1080i or 2160p, the URSA will record into .mov files (with .mxf to be added in a future update), so you can either save space or go full on with full UHD footage for sublime viewing.
With such easy access and wide selection of storage options, this allows you to take advantage of the URSA Broadcast’s Non Stop Recording. Even in 10-bit broadcast quality, you can carry on recording once one card is full and instantly move to another. The outputted files all use DNxHD 145, DNxHD 220X or ProRes with metadata, making them compatible with essentially all editing software.
Interchangeable Lens Mounts
Compatability with Flexibility Blackmagic have taken making the URSA Broadcast as flexible as possible very seriously. In conjunction with the release of this fantastic new camera, Blackmagic have released a new set of accessories for the camera to allow you to build a camera chain. Viewfinders, SMPTE fibre converters and there’s the option to use all your lenses that you’ve invested in with the included B4 mount or optional EF, F and PL lens mounts that are available separately.
B4 Lens The B4 lens mount is incredible, with the option to use existing HD or Ultra HD lenses with the 2/3” mount. With a high quality HD lens in tow, you’ll be able to use resolutions all the way up to 3K and go even further with an UHD lens. B4 lenses also don’t need to be refocused when zooming in, allowing you to follow the story and shoot without having to even think too hard about it and just worry about getting the story in all its glory. While using a B4 lens, you have full control remotely with the ATEM switcher using the SDI camera control protocol, or through the camera’s controls.
ND Filters The URSA Broadcast can deal with harsh lighting through the use of the built in ND Filters. ¼, 1/16 and 1/64 stop filters are available to darken your image, allowing you to fight off odd lighting when on the scene or even studio lights without having to alter settings. They’re all controlled through a little knob on the front, allowing for easy access to each filter.
Never Miss a Beat
Always Prepared When on location or trying to capture that one specific moment, sometimes just hitting record without a complete set up is just easier than making sure a microphone is connected to get high quality sound from something happening in the moment. Luckily, the URSA Broadcast comes with a broadcast quality microphone built in and an additional two XLR ports for additional microphones. The URSA will also record two audio channels at once, allowing you record something that will not only envelop a viewer, but allows you a backup for anything that one microphone doesn’t pick up.
The URSA Broadcast brings the Blackmagic OS with it too, allowing you to get right into the nitty gritty of how you want to shoot, what you want the camera to do and how you want things saved, incredibly quickly, so you never miss a moment fiddling with settings. The software will also duplicate all physical buttons should anything happen to them too, giving you redundancy options in the event that anything does break.
Versatile Broadcast Camera
See the URSA Broadcast's Status Day or Night But, there isn’t much of an issue with damage, as the URSA Broadcast is super tough and built with magnesium, giving it a sleek look that doesn’t get in the way of functionality. The monitor on the side of the camera displaying time and all the information you’d need quickly is viewable in both daylight and at night.
Go from Great to Perfect Transform your URSA Broadcast from great to perfect with this range of accessories. With its built in remote control, colour correction, talkback, tally and other studio features, the additional components that can be bought separately give you the edge over other productions, without breaking the bank.
The Studio Viewfinder gives you a 7-inch monitor to view all the action, while the Camera Fiber Converter allows you to connect a camera to a live switcher up to 2km away with video, talkback, control and power over a single cable. Finally, the Studio Fiber Converter lets you connect to cameras dotted about with just that single cable.
