  • Tech Specs

The 3 cameras in 1 design allows it to work as a 4K production camera, a 4K studio camera or a 6K digital film camera! It's a perfect solution for broadcasters because it uses the lenses and batteries you already own! You can record to common SD cards, UHS-II cards, CFast 2.0 cards or external USB disks, using common file formats such as H.265, ProRes and Blackmagic RAW. This means it's compatible with all video software and broadcast media management systems. You can even change the lens mount! No other broadcast camera is so flexible!

3 Cameras in One

Broadcast Production Camera
The perfect solution for broadcasters, URSA Broadcast G2 includes ENG camera controls positioned around the camera so you can locate them by feel. It also features a low light sensor so you get amazing images using natural light. That's the perfect combination for broadcast news and programming.

Live Studio Camera
URSA Broadcast includes an advanced YRGB color corrector built in and full remote camera control. You can use B4 ENG lenses, large studio box lenses, or even change the lens mount and use any lens! Plus the optional Blackmagic focus and zoom demands let you control the lens from the tripod handles.

Digital Cinema Camera
URSA Broadcast G2 includes an advanced 6K digital film sensor, and you can change the lens mount! Use a PL mount for digital film lenses or EF for photo lenses. Plus the high dynamic range, great low light performance and Blackmagic RAW means you get a true "Hollywood" quality digital film camera.
