Blackmagic Studio Camera

The Blackmagic Studio line has the same functionality as large cameras, but with a single compact body. With an ISO setting of up to 25,600, the image will be excellent even in low light conditions. Also includes an intercom and status indicator, remote control, built-in color grading tool, and Blackmagic RAW codec recording to USB drives.

The large 7-inch display makes framing easier, the touchscreen gives you access to settings, and the circular knobs allow you to adjust brightness, contrast, and peaking.

Gain from -12 dB (ISO 100) to +36 dB (ISO 25,600) produces footage with low digital noise and graininess while maintaining the entire dynamic range of the sensor. The required value is set by the operator himself on the camera or remotely from the switcher (via SDI or via the control protocol via the Ethernet port).

Blackmagic Studio camera models are equipped with an MFT mount that is compatible with a wide range of available photo optics. The Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K Pro has SDI interfaces and a 5-pin XLR connector on the side of the case for connecting a standard broadcast-grade headset.

Blackmagic Studio 4K Pro supports multi-camera connections with just one Ethernet cable. As a rule, the infrastructure with traditional broadcasting technology uses expensive optical fiber according to the SMPTE standard. However, thanks to the built-in 10G Ethernet port, the cost of this model is much lower than that of analogs. It is used for control, power, and transmission of program and return streams, talkback messages, and tally signals. The Blackmagic Studio Converter converts footage from the switcher and supplies power over the power cable. Thus, there is no need to plug equipment into outlets.

Additionally, there is a USB output with support for both formats to simulate a webcam signal when connected to a computer.

Blackmagic Web Presenter also has features to ensure continuous streaming. The solution allows you to connect to the Internet in two ways: via the built-in Ethernet port, or using a 5G or 4G smartphone as a wireless hotspot. In case of failure of one channel, the other will be automatically activated. If necessary, it is possible to use a pair of devices for streaming to the primary and secondary YouTube servers. In addition, the model has power connectors for AC and DC power supplies.

While the Blackmagic Web Presenter is primarily intended for streaming across multiple platforms, it can be used as a custom SDI link between studios. ATEM Streaming Bridge is a converter that accepts H.264 streams from the Blackmagic Web Presenter and converts them back to SDI output. This allows the signal to be transmitted to remote locations on the local Ethernet network, and when connected to the Internet, to anywhere in the world. This functionality is possible thanks to the hardware decoding of the H.264 image.

Like traditional TV station transmitters, streaming servers are critical infrastructure components. For this reason, the Blackmagic Web Presenter has a dedicated output for monitoring technical parameters in full 1080 HD resolution. It can be used to display the image itself, accurate audio indicators, graphs of the stream rate and cache status, as well as a complete picture of settings and detailed information about the SDI signal on an SDI display or HDMI TV.
