Key Features

Digital Film Quality for Broadcast

Employing the 6K sensor enables you to use resolutions of up to 6144 x 3456, making it flexible enough for broadcast as well as digital film work.

Low-Light Performance

With next level low light performance you can shoot in almost any light condition, even moonlight.
The Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 features gain from -12dB (100 ISO) up to +36dB (25,600 ISO), so it's optimized to reduce grain and noise in images while maintaining the full dynamic range of the sensor. The primary native ISO is 400, which is ideal for use under studio lighting. Then the secondary high base ISO of 3200 is perfect when shooting in dimly lit environments. The gain can be set via a camera switch, the LCD menu, or remotely using the SDI remote camera control protocol.

Built-In Optical ND Filters

With the use of built-in 1/4, /1/16th and 1/64th stop filter you can easily reduce the amount of light entering the camera and reaching the sensor. This feature enables you to use different combinations of aperture and shutter angles in a wider range of situations.

Common Media and File Formats

With the Blackmagic Design URSA Broadcast G 2 Camera you can record in ProRes 422 HQ and ProRes 422 into quick time files. The new Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 model can even record into H.265 for incredibly small files at 60:1 to 285:1 compression ratios, in 10-bit broadcast quality.

Dual Media Slots for Nonstop Recording

The unit features two CFast 2.0 as well as dual SD/UHS-II card slots. Meaning, while recording and the one card is full the recording will continue to the second card effectively doubling your recording time.

USB Type-C for Recording Direct to External Media Disks

The Blackmagic Design URSA Broadcast G2 Camera features a high-speed USB Type-C connection port enabling you to record to external devices.

Strong and Lightweight Magnesium Design

The Black Magic URSA Broadcast G-2 Camera features a super-strong, lightweight magnesium alloy body that's perfectly balanced and designed to be comfortable to use all day. It features familiar, externally mounted switches and controls that give you direct access to the most important camera settings. The controls are laid out logically, making them easy to locate by feel, so you can adjust settings without having to look at the buttons. You also get a foldout touchscreen for monitoring, viewing camera status, and changing settings using on-screen menus. URSA Broadcast G2 also includes standard 12G-SDI connections, XLR audio inputs, USB Type-C, and an industry-standard 4-pin XLR broadcast 12 VDC connection.

External Status Display

Even in bright light the LCD screen is designed to be easily seen displaying record, locked, and reference timecodes, along with the current shooting frame rate, shutter angle, aperture, white balance, gain, and iris. Additionally, it also displays battery indicators, card recording status as well as audio meters.

Load Custom 3D LUT's to Recreate Film Looks

Cameras shoot logarithmic colour space to preserve dynamic range. When these images are viewed on a monitor they may look washed out.
When the 3D LUT's are added you can apply a look to the monitor to get an idea of what the finished image will look like. This can be applied temporarily for monitoring only or can be recorded into the BlackMagic RAW to be used in post-production. Industry-standard 17- and 33-point 3D LUT files or you can work with the built-in LUTs such as Extended Video, Film to Video, Film to Rec.2020, and more.

BlackMagic RAW Quality

Blackmagic RAW is a revolutionary new format designed to capture and preserve the quality of the sensor data from your camera. Common video files have a lot of video processing, so you can lose some of the original sensor detail. Blackmagic RAW eliminates this problem, so you get stunning images with incredible detail and rich colour throughout the whole post-production pipeline. Blackmagic RAW also saves camera settings as metadata, so you can change ISO, white balance, and exposure later in DaVinci Resolve. Plus, the files are small and fast, so editing responsiveness is incredible. Only Blackmagic RAW gives you the highest quality, smallest files, and fastest performance.

Wireless Bluetooth Camera Remote Control

When the Black Magic Design URSA Broadcast G 2 Camera is mounted on a boom, or other hard to reach location, the built-in Bluetooth can be activated for the camera to be controlled from up to 10m away.

You will find a pre-installed plate on the back of the camera, all BlackMagic V-Mount plates will be compatible with this unit.
