URSA Mini PL adapterURSA Mini Update

  • Connectivity

URSA Mini now includes reference video input and the timecode on the same connector so there is now have a free connection for adding 12G-SDI input. This will let operators use the URSA Mini with an external recorder better but more importantly it allows users to integrate URSA Mini as a live production or studio camera. There is a program button that lets you select to see the 12G-SDI input on the fold out screen or the viewfinder. Both the EF and PL models of URSA Mini will have this 12G-SDI input.

  • B4 Lens Mount

An extremely common request is for the ability to keep using their older HD broadcast lenses. People have spent a lot of money on these lenses and they need the parfocal ability to be able to zoom and keep the focus through the range of the zoom.

A new lens mount lets you take the mount off a PL URSA Mini and add a B4 lens mount. You simply plug the lens into the new lens mount connection to power and control the lens. This new lens control connector on the URSA Mini PL supports both analogue and digital lens control standards and will also power the lens.

When the URSA Mini is running HD with these HD lenses, you can get up to 80 frames per second. As these B4 lenses are HD rated, this is a fantastic solution because you get modern file formats such as RAW, ProRes and DNX, plus you get metadata and much more.

New Teranex Mini SDI Distribution 12G

This new model is a 12G-SDI distribution converter. Send any SD, HD or Ultra HD video connection out to 8 separate 12G-SDI outputs. Like all the Teranex Mini converters it will automatically switch to the SDI input format and handles all SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, 6G-SDI and 12G-SDI rates. Because these new models are part of the Teranex Mini family, you can also add the Teranex Mini Smart Panel to see what you are converting on the front panel.

The Teranex Mini 12G-SDI to Quad Link SDI model can also act as a video wall processor as you can take the Ultra HD and send a HD tile out to 4 separate screens.

New Teranex Mini Quad SDI to 12G SDI Converter

If you want to connect Quad Link SDI to the new HyperDeck Studio 12G then you just use the Quad Link SDI to 12G-SDI model to do it. Doing this would let you record from any Quad Link Ultra HD device direct onto the SSD in the HyperDeck Studio 12G. With 12G-SDI there is only 1 cable instead of 4 cables and it will instantly switch between SD, HD and Ultra HD without changing cabling.

Teranex Express Update

New Teranex Express adds extremely powerful recursive noise reduction, so you can clean up noise video sources such as older videotapes. Another new feature is a new home screen that now shows you video, audio meters, video standard and timecode displayed.

Blackmagic MultiView Update

The 4K MultiView 16 software update includes new audio meters and on screen labels.

The VU meters let you see the audio levels on each video input and they feature correct VU ballistics that accurately conform to the VU meter standard. The meters are displayed independent of how many views you have selected and because the output can be Ultra HD, the meter graphics are very sharp and clear.

Decklink Quad 2

Decklink 2DeckLink Quad capture and playback card. This new model is designed for developers, system integrators and OEM's who need multiple channels of video in and out of the computer in a single card.

The new model has 3G-SDI on all channels so it can do SD and HD video formats up to 1080p60. What's really exciting is this new model actually has 8 channels internally so it's a lot more powerful and configurable than the previous model. For example, you might need 8 channels of capture, or you might need 8 channels of playback. You might need 1 channel of capture and 7 channels of playback.
