Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 – Ultra HD Broadcast Camera for UHD and HD using B4 Lenses (BMD-CINEURSAMWC6KG2). 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!
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
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!
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.
