7 Reasons Why You Should Be Using Blackmagic’s URSA Mini Pro 4.6k Camera
NEW! DeckLink Duo 2 Mini
Featuring 4 independent mini 3G-SDI connections, DeckLink Duo 2 Mini is a low profile, multi channel PCI Express capture and playback card that supports all SD and HD formats up to 1080p60! You get the flexibility of 4 separate capture or playback cards in one! Plus, it’s completely customizable so it’s perfect for media play-out systems, multi screen digital signage servers, real time multi channel capture systems and more!
DeckLink 8K Pro – Desktop Video 11.0 update
This software update includes new features for DeckLink 8K Pro along with improvements for UltraStudio HD Mini and Media Express. DeckLink 8K Pro can now be configured to support up to 4 completely independent 12G-SDI capture and playback channels using the DeckLink SDK. In addition, support for 47.95 and 48 frame per second signal formats has been added, along with HDR metadata packing (ST2108-1), HLG and PQ transfer characteristics (ST2082-10), and support for synchronized capture and playback. Desktop Video 11.0 update also fixes an issue for audio meter updates when using UltraStudio HD Mini with a Teranex Mini Smart Panel and improves Media Express so that video captured with drop-frame timecode is now detected correctly in Adobe Premiere Pro CC.
Pocket Cinema Camera 4K – Camera 6.2 Update
Pocket Cinema Camera 4K now supports Blackmagic RAW
The new Blackmagic Camera 6.2 update adds support for Blackmagic RAW to the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K, giving you the quality of full, visually lossless camera RAW images, with the size and speed of traditional video file formats! Because the files are so small, you’ll be able to record much longer programs on the media you already own. You’ll also be able to change parameters such as exposure, saturation, midtone detail, and more. Best of all, just like traditional RAW formats, these changes are completely non-destructive! You’ll be able to choose between 3:1, 5:1, 8:1 and 12:1 constant bit-rate recording or between constant quality Q0 and Q5 recording. With Blackmagic RAW 12:1, you can record more than 2 hours of 4K DCI footage to a single 256GB SD UHS-II card, giving you stunning cinematic quality images on incredibly small, inexpensive cards!
