Blackmagic URSA Broadcast -4K broadcasting on a budget
Blackmagic has officially announced the URSA Broadcast - 4K camera . The system , designed on the successful URSA Mini platform is now optimized for Studio and broadcasting environments and therefore it has a smaller 13.056mm x 7.344mm (Somewhat close to the Nikon 1's custom sensor) and a B4. mount for broadcasting lenses (But there is support for PL, EF and Nikon F mounts as well) . The camera , which has an internal carousel ND with 1/4, 1/16th and 1/64th stops works in the same way as the Ursa Mini . The camera records 1080i and goes all the way unto UHD 2160p in DNx145, DNx220X or ProRES with record formats in .Mov or .Mxf. The camera is also capable of recording to two CF cards or 2 SD cards as well . Pricing for the camera is $3500 which makes this quite a bargain if you want a Multicam set up without breaking much bank.
