The Studio Camera 4K lets you produce multiple camera live production in any location. The super bright large viewfinder and compact size of the Studio Camera makes it perfect for talk shows, sitcoms and broadcast news in the studio, or even live concerts and sporting events. The incredible lightweight compact design, foldable sunshade and interchangeable lenses mean you can pack an entire multi camera live production rig into a single road case. Because it’s so easy to setup and use, the Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K is also perfect for corporate AV departments, houses of worship, schools and more.
The Studio Camera 4K features a compact and durable magnesium alloy body that is packed with innovative technology, making it the most rugged, portable and advanced studio camera in the world. You get a huge 10” viewfinder with sunshade for optimal viewing and control, a flexible MFT mount that gives you more lens options than any other studio camera, multiple mounting points and professional broadcast connections. Designed with the latest miniaturization technology and features, the Studio Camera 4K is the world’s most advanced camera that's specifically designed for multiple camera live production.
Ultra HD is the broadcast standard of the future and 4K content is already being delivered to consumers today through web video channels like YouTube and Vimeo. New Ultra HD displays deliver a picture that has 4 times the resolution of 1080 HD, that’s a massive 3840 x 2160 pixels. From the newsroom to live sporting and theatrical events, there’s no faster way to capture the beauty and realism of Ultra HD 4K than to record a live switched program with Blackmagic Studio Cameras.
The Studio Camera 4K features an active Micro Four Thirds lens mount that is compatible with an incredibly wide range of lenses and adapters. You can use your existing photo lenses for smaller setups or fixed camera use, or then bolt on incredible broadcast ENG lenses for large live broadcasts. Third party lens adapters let you connect to all kinds of lens mounts for any type of lens you choose, and you can even add feature film PL mount lenses, allowing you to customize your camera to suit any size production.
The Studio Camera 4K is the world’s first to include a built in fiber optic connection, allowing you to use a single thin tether cable to connect cameras to your live production switchers. The optical fiber connection is bi-directional and carries HD or Ultra HD video with embedded audio, talkback, tally and even camera remote control. And because it uses standard, low cost fiber optic cable, you can connect cameras over massive distances almost anywhere, even at the largest outdoor venues.
Built in talkback allows the camera operator and crew to communicate at all times during production. General aviation headset connections let you choose from a wide range of aviation headsets, so you get better quality talkback headsets with better noise canceling and a much lower cost. Setup is easy because talkback is embedded in the optical or SDI video connection to the camera, so you don’t have to run separate talkback cables.
Featuring broadcast quality connections you get bi-directional optical fiber and SDI connections for connecting to live production switchers or recorders. Also included is a professional aviation headsets jack, stereo XLR microphone inputs, and more. All connections are logically organized on the left and right sides of the camera, making them accessible and easy to use. Because the Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K uses standard connectors, you don’t need expensive custom cables.
The Studio Camera can be remotely controlled from your ATEM live production switcher via the SDI connections for more professional production. The Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K also has a full DaVinci Resolve primary color corrector so you can color balance your cameras as well as add creativity to your live production. All settings in the camera can be controlled including color, full lens control, camera settings and more, all remotely from the live production switcher. That leaves you free to focus on the shot.
