Blackmagic Design URSA Broadcast G2 with the Fujinon LA16x8BRM-XB1A Lens
Blackmagic Design URSA Broadcast G2
The new Blackmagic Design URSA Broadcast G2 is an incredibly powerful camera designed for both traditional and online broadcasters. The 3 cameras in 1 design allow it to work as a 4K production camera, a 4K studio camera, or a 6K digital film camera! 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. You can even change the lens mount! No other broadcast camera is so flexible!
Three Cameras in One!
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.
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 the 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.
Exceptional Low Light Performance
The new URSA Broadcast features incredible low-light performance so you can shoot using ambient light or even under the 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.
Compatible with B4 Broadcast Lenses
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 a 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.
Use Common Media and File Formats!
URSA Broadcast is designed to work with standard file formats that are used by all broadcast systems and editing software. You can record in ProRes 422 HQ and ProRes 422 into QuickTime files. The new Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 model can even record into H.265 for incredibly small files at 60:1 to 285:1 compression ratios, in 10-bit broadcast quality.
Dual Media Slots for Non‑Stop Recording
With dual CFast 2.0 recorders and dual SD/UHS-II card recorders, you can choose the media that's best for you! Both types of media are standard, inexpensive, and readily available at computer and camera stores. Plus with dual media slots, URSA Broadcast gives you a nonstop recording! When a card is full, the recording automatically continues onto the next card so you can swap a full card while the recording continues.
USB-C for Recording Direct to External Media Disks
The Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 features a high-speed USB-C expansion port on the rear of the camera that allows you to record to external disks or connect to a wide range of accessories. If you plug in a large and low-cost external USB flash disk, you can record ProRes, H.265, or even high-quality 12-bit Blackmagic RAW files for later editing and color correction. That means you can just move the disk to a computer to work, and you don't need to waste time with file copying.
Strong and Lightweight Magnesium Design
URSA Broadcast G2 features a super strong, lightweight magnesium alloy body that’s perfectly balanced and designed to be comfortable to use all day! The controls are laid out logically, making them easy to locate by feel, so you can adjust settings without having to look at the buttons. You also get a foldout touchscreen for monitoring, viewing camera status, and changing settings using on-screen menus. URSA Broadcast G2 also includes standard 12G-SDI connections, XLR audio inputs, USB-C, and an industry-standard 4-pin XLR broadcast 12V DC connection!
Built-in LCD with Touch Controls
With a built-in LCD that folds out, you can both monitor and control the camera. The built-in touchscreen also includes a heads-up display with the most important shooting information, as well as menus for all camera settings, LUTs, and custom presets. Plus behind the LCD there are extra buttons, as well as knobs for audio levels. There are even programmable function buttons that can have functions assigned to them, such as zebra, false color, focus peaking, LUTs, and more!
External Status Display
The status display is a high-visibility LCD screen that’s designed to be easily seen, even in bright light! The status display shows the record timecode, locked timecode and reference timecode, along with the current shooting frame rate, shutter angle, aperture, white balance, gain, and iris. The screen’s backlight can be turned on when you are shooting in dimly lit locations, and off when you are shooting outdoors and in bright light to increase contrast, making it easy to read under any condition!
Program Video Monitoring
If you're doing live production, sometimes you need to monitor the program video back from the switcher. Simply press the camera’s PGM button and the viewfinder will switch from the camera display to the program return feed from the switcher. A built-in speaker also lets you monitor the switcher audio as well.
Load Custom 3D LUTs to Recreate Film Looks!
Digital film cameras shoot logarithmic colorspace to preserve the dynamic range, which is great for later post-production. However, when these files are viewed on a monitor they can look flat and washed out, 3D LUTs solve this problem as they allow you to apply a "look" to the monitor so you get an idea of how the finished images will look when editing.
Standard Television Industry Connections
The 12G-SDI connections are multi-rate and switch between all HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60. Other connections include a headphone connection, USB-C, balanced XLR audio with phantom power, and timecode/reference input. There's also a front-mounted 12-pin Hirose connector for broadcast lens control which can also power the lens. Plus for connecting a viewfinder or on-set monitor there's even an HD-SDI monitoring output and a broadcast-style 4-pin XLR 12V DC power output!
Supports All Broadcast Frame Rates
Whether you’re shooting a sporting event or a breaking news story, Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 can shoot super smooth, crystal-clear slow-motion video. You can set up your preferred high-speed frame rate using the camera’s on-screen menus, then switch between standard sync speed and off-speed frame rates using the HFR button on the side of the camera. That means you can have a higher frame rate setup and be ready to go, so it's instantly available when the action gets exciting!
Professional Audio Connections and Built-In Microphones
URSA Broadcast G2 has a high-quality microphone and professional audio recorder built in so you don’t have to carry any extra sound equipment that means you can use the built-in stereo microphone or you can connect external microphones! The XLR connections have 48V phantom power so you can plug in everything from shotgun to wireless clip-on mics.
Get Studio Camera Control via SDI
All Blackmagic Design ATEM switchers can control cameras via a protocol embedded into the URSA Broadcast G2's SDI video connections. Setup is easy because all ATEM switchers broadcast control commands from the switcher’s SDI program output to the camera via the SDI program input. The switcher can perform color correction, tally and lens control, and these are sent to all cameras. All you need to do is select the correct camera number and it all works.
Work in Both HD or Ultra HD
The Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 is not just a great Ultra HD camera, but it’s also an amazing HD camera too! The high-resolution sensor and generation 5 color science create amazing images with high dynamic range and wide color fidelity. But when you need to do HD work, the camera will scale the image sensor down to 1080HD video standards. This helps you get stories on air fast, in HD or Ultra HD video standards, anywhere in the world! Plus when working in HD, the high-resolution sensor allows sub-pixel image processing for superior anti-aliasing and sharp images. Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 is a future-proof camera that's perfect for both HD and Ultra HD production!
Change to PL, EF, and F Lens Mounts!
URSA Broadcast G2 features an interchangeable lens mount so you can easily swap the included B4 lens mount for an EF, PL, or even F mount. URSA Broadcast G2 comes with a B4 mount already installed, plus a spare EF mount is included. That means if you’re starting out you can change the mount and use low-cost photographic lenses. If you're shooting for digital film, the PL mount is best as it's the most common lens mount for cinema lenses. With URSA Broadcast G2, you get a single camera that works with virtually all modern lenses!
Latest Generation 5 Color Science
Featuring the same generation 5 color science as the high-end URSA Mini Pro 12K, the new URSA Broadcast G2 delivers an even greater advancement in image quality with stunning, accurate skin tones and faithful color in every shot. The color science also handles some of the complex Blackmagic RAW image processing, so color and dynamic range data from the sensor is preserved via metadata which you can use in post-production. That means you get images that have a natural, film-like response to color adjustments in post with DaVinci Resolve Studio.
Incredible Blackmagic RAW Quality
Blackmagic RAW is a revolutionary new format designed to capture and preserve the quality of the sensor data from your camera. Common video files have a lot of video processing, so you can lose some of the original sensor detail. Blackmagic RAW eliminates this problem so you get stunning images with incredible detail and rich color throughout the whole post-production pipeline. Plus the files are small and fast, so editing responsiveness is incredible. Only Blackmagic RAW gives you the highest quality, smallest files, and fastest performance!
Powered by Blackmagic OS
With the advanced Blackmagic OS, you get an intuitive and user-friendly camera operating system based on the latest technology. Blackmagic OS is a truly modern operating system where all camera features run independently for smoother control, plus URSA Broadcast G2 powers on virtually instantly. The interface uses simple tap and swipe gestures to adjust settings, add metadata and view recording status. You also get full control over advanced camera features such as on-screen focus and exposure tools, 3D LUTs, HDR, metadata entry, timecode, Blackmagic RAW settings, and more!
Built-in Timecode Generator
All models of Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 have a built-in time-of-day timecode generator, so you can sync all the cameras and then do multi-cam editing later because all the recordings will have the same timecode. Simply plug in an external timecode generator to the BNC timecode input and the camera will automatically detect the timecode and lock the internal generator. Now each camera can start and stop recording and the shots from all cameras will have matched timecodes. Imagine shooting a music festival with multiple cameras!
Focus and Zoom Demands
The optional zoom and focus demands allow you to use photography lenses for live production! The focus and zoom demands have USB-C connections so they control the lens via the camera’s electronic lens control. Each zoom and focus demand has 2 USB-C ports, so you can daisy chain them and then connect them to the camera with a single USB connection. The design has an incredibly precise feel so you get very fine lens control, and you can frame and adjust the lens without taking your hands off the tripod handles. The buttons can be customized so you can assign different camera functions to them! Plus, hardware is included for mounting the focus and zoom demands onto tripod handles.
Add Viewfinders, SMPTE Fiber, and Lens Mounts
There's a wide range of accessories that are specifically designed to work perfectly with URSA Broadcast G2. However, a shoulder mount kit, V-Lock battery plate, and top handle are included so you don't need to purchase anything extra! Plus you get a spare EF lens mount if you don't own a B4 lens and would like to start out using a photography lens. You can add the optional Blackmagic URSA Viewfinder or for live production, you can add a Blackmagic URSA Studio Viewfinder! There's also an optional fiber converter that can power the camera from 2 km away via the single SMPTE fiber! For long-duration recording, URSA Mini Recorder gives you the option to record to external SSDs!
Record to SSDs and U.2 Media
The optional Blackmagic URSA Mini Recorder lets you record files onto large 2.5-inch SSDs, as well as the latest U.2 NVMe Enterprise SSDs! SSDs such as the latest 7mm U.2 NVMe disks are super fast, delivering data transfer speeds of up to 900 MB/s! This blazing-fast performance allows you longer recording times for full resolution 4K and 6K 12-bit Blackmagic RAW files in the highest quality Q0 encoding. The unique design of the Blackmagic URSA Mini Recorder means it attaches directly to the back of your URSA Broadcast G2 between the camera and the battery.
