Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K Plus G2 is a mini studio camera that features a 4K sensor with up to 25,600 ISO, MFT lens mount, 12G-SDI and HDMI, 3.5mm talkback, and 7″ LCD with sunshade. Advanced features include talkback, tally, camera control, built in color corrector, Blackmagic RAW recording to USB disks, and live streaming capabilities. Focus and zoom demand are also integrated for lens control. Available now at an MSRP of $1,345 US.
Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K G2 is an ultra compact, Ultra HD live production camera with upgraded 4K sensor and 12G-SDI. The new 4K G2 represents the next generation model of the Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K. The new model retains the same compact design of the original model, but now has an upgraded 4K sensor with a stated 13 stops of dynamic range and dual native ISO up to 25,600. The Micro Studio Camera 4K G2 also adds 12G-SDI for operation up to 2160p60, and a new USB-C expansion port for recording Blackmagic RAW to external disks as well as network control via Ethernet adapters. The 4K G2 will be available in October at an MSRP of $995 US.
The new Blackmagic Videohub 12G-SDI is a video router that allows connection of a large number and variety of equipment. Videohub routers support 12G-SDI so they allow you to connect and route any combination of SD, HD and Ultra HD on the same router at the same time. Plus they have zero latency, so they are well suited for live production and broadcast. The design features a front panel with LCD for labels and live video, shortcut buttons, and a machined metal spin knob that allows browsing between multiple video sources. Ethernet is also included to remotely control the router using a range of external hardware or software control panels. The new Videohub 80×80 is available now for an MSRP of $9,995 US.
The latest ATEM Advanced Panels offer professional control of multiple sources at affordable prices. The new ATEM Advanced Panels open up the power of ATEM and allow the setup of more complex effects. They can also offer a preferable way to work because they have physical broadcast quality buttons, knobs and a t‑bar fader to access all features in the switcher. The two new ATEM 1 M/E Panels now offer either 20 or 30 buttons with 2 system control LCDs, control of 4 upstream keys, 4 downstream keyers, and 4 M/E rows. Available now for MSRPs starting at $3,899 US.
