The Blackmagic URSA features standard broadcast connections so you don’t need to worry about buying expensive custom cables! You get 12G-SDI output that can be down converted to HD or used directly at amazing Ultra HD quality. There’s also a 12G-SDI input that can display return video on the 10 inch monitor when working on live events or an external video source! A separate SDI output is available for attaching external viewfinders and eye pieces. For audio, there are 2 professional XLR connections with 48v phantom power so you can use the audio industry’s best quality microphones. You also get timecode in/out and a LANC connector for controlling the camera, lenses, and accessories remotely.
The Blackmagic URSA features a larger professional size that has the space for powerful cooling that allows higher frame rates while keeping the chassis cool and the fan super quiet. The machined aluminum design is incredibly strong and has been designed for large film crew use and to be field upgradable to new sensors by the user. Each area of the camera has been divided into separate DOP, camera assistant and audio engineer work stations. The DOP station features a large 10 inch fold out on set monitor and separate 5 inch screen for settings, camera status and scopes. The camera assist station features a separate screen for camera settings, status and scopes and an audio station features audio meters, controls and audio connections. The big screen means you don’t need extra on set equipment so it’s easy to move around quickly between shots. Simply fold in the monitor and go!
URSA now includes a new professional digital film 4.6K image sensor that captures a spectacular 4608 x 2592 pixels with 15 stops of dynamic range! That’s larger than DCI 4K! The sensor features an incredible 15 stops of dynamic range for true digital film imaging. The wide dynamic range is dramatically better than regular video cameras or even high end broadcast cameras, so you get dramatically better images that look like true digital film. The wide dynamic range preserves detail in dark shadows as well as bright highlights so you have a wider range of brightness levels to work with when color grading in post production. The extra large Super 35 size allows for creative shallow depth of field shooting and the high resolution 12-bit lossless CinemaDNG RAW recording means you get incredible quality! You can also record HD or Ultra HD using ProRes for easy post production workflow with broadcast quality images and minimum storage requirements!
URSA uses a standard 4-pin 12V to 30V XLR broadcast power connector for plugging into external power supplies. There are also mounting points and a power transfer connector for mounting third party V-Mount and Anton/Bauer gold mount back plates and batteries onto the rear of the camera itself. This means you can integrate the battery as part of the camera itself. You also get a standard 4 pin XLR 12V output power connector so you can use a wide range of third party viewfinders without needing expensive custom cables. That means it’s easy to integrate the camera with all of your existing gear and accessories!
Blackmagic URSA includes the full version of DaVinci Resolve software for Mac and Windows, so you get a professional editing and color correction system with your camera! For color correction of your wide dynamic range camera files, you get the full creative power of primaries, secondaries, power windows and much more! For editing you get DaVinci Resolve’s new advanced editing features including a full multi layer timeline with ripple, roll, slide and slip clip trimming, multi cam, title tools and more! You can even use Resolve Live to grade live pictures direct from the camera while on set. Imagine lighting your set and color grading all at the same time! Blackmagic URSA and DaVinci Resolve mean you get a complete production and post production solution!
