Are we looking at the world’s most affordable 4K studio?
The latest products in the Blackmagic stable have completed a jigsaw puzzle that has everyone from corporate producers to television studio owners seriously taking notice.
Kitting out a studio with three cameras, switcher, tally, talkback and remote camera set up, has traditionally only been within the reach of national broadcasters such as the BBC and Sky. Now, because of Blackmagic’s vision, more modest budgets can realise broadcast standard HD and even 4K UHD workflows.
So, who does the Blackmagic studio system appeal to? Nearly everyone.
An URSA Broadcast Camera, Camera Fibre Converter and Studio Fibre Converter cost less than certain 4K monitors. You can now even set up and colour match that camera with the addition of an ATEM Camera Control Panel or RCP.
To add value, that control panel can reference all of your cameras, not just one. These products work together seamlessly and therein lies the magic, you do not need to be a studio engineer to be able to put together a Blackmagic Design 4K camera chain.
