Introducing the Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2

Introducing the Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2

The new Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 is an incredibly powerful camera designed for both traditional and online broadcasters. The 3 cameras in 1 design allows it to work as a 4K production camera, a 4K studio camera or a 6K digital film camera! It's a perfect solution for broadcasters because it uses the lenses and batteries you already own! 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. This means it's compatible with all video software and broadcast media management systems. You can even change the lens mount! No other broadcast camera is so flexible!

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 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. Then if you change to a PL or EF lens mount, you can use the full 6K resolution of the sensor for digital film! Using digital film in broadcast is a revolution in image quality!

Professional Audio

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. You can also select to link audio inputs on the camera so you can plug in lapel microphones that often only have a single mono connection, if you want to record the mic onto both channels of the recorded file. URSA Broadcast G2 also features knobs for adjusting levels and onscreen meters so you can trim audio levels even when shoulder mounted.
