When you're doing ENG work, you need a balanced shoulder mount camera that’s comfortable enough to use all day. You don't need any additional equipment or rigging because the camera includes a low light sensor, built in ND filters, fold out LCD monitor, dual media recording that uses common memory cards and professional audio all built into the compact design. The wide dynamic range sensor provides incredible color, accurate skin tones and professional looking images. Plus you can record in ProRes or H.265 so the media can be quickly edited and put to air. It can even shoot ENG material in Blackmagic RAW so you can reuse the content for magazine programs or current affairs.
URSA Broadcast G2 is perfect for covering large events such as concerts and sports. You can have handheld cameras shooting from the sidelines, or set up tripods all around the stadium. If you need to work far away from the switcher, you can add the optional fiber converter. The Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter provides remote talkback, tally, camera control from 2 km away using an industry standard SMPTE fiber cable. It even powers the camera up to 2 km away! Or if you are starting out, you can simply plug the camera SDI output directly into your switcher! This means you can use the same camera to start with and then add more "high end" live production workflows as your company grows and your needs change!
Imagine using broadcast cameras when streaming to platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and more! Blackmagic Design makes a complete line of cameras, switchers and streaming products that are specifically designed for web broadcasters. You can start with URSA Broadcast G2 connected to a switcher all via simple BNC cable. Just fold out the built in LCD to access the setup menus and get started! You can add an optional OLED viewfinder, or large screen studio viewfinder. You can even control the cameras from the switcher, using fixed cameras so you don't need a crew! That means you get camera control, talkback and tally from the switcher, all built in, without adding anything extra.
Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 makes it possible to produce unscripted studio shows, such as live cooking competitions or a bake off, at full broadcast quality. You can mix handheld URSA Broadcast cameras with shoulder kits and viewfinders, alongside tripod based cameras with URSA Studio Viewfinders. All of the cameras can be connected to an ATEM switcher with integrated hardware control panel so you can cut the show live. That’s because one person can use an ATEM Advanced Panel for switching, while someone else uses an ATEM Camera Control Panel to balance color, all at the same time! The program output can be recorded to a HyperDeck Studio so you create the master recording all in real time!
Whether you’re managing a global brand or a local independent brand, you always want your TVC to look perfect! That's why it's vital that television commercials are shot using digital film.

Any product can benefit from the luxurious visual treatment that using URSA Broadcast G2 cameras and DaVinci Resolve color correction will provide.
When you’re working on high end studio based television production, you need a camera that can be adapted to the studio environment. Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 works with professional fluid heads and gas pedestals, broadcast box lenses, high end talkback headsets, SMPTE fiber connections and studio viewfinders. The URSA Studio Viewfinder provides a large bright LCD with full adjustable range so you can position the camera higher or lower down and simply angle the screen so you can monitor the shot. Even SMPTE fiber can be added so all video and control is connected to the camera using a single cable, and as the camera moves around the studio floor, you don't get messy cable tangles.
As many live shows are actually just recorded in front of a live studio audience and then edited, its important your studio cameras support multicam editing. URSA Broadcast G2 is perfect for these types of shows because it uses standard ProRes and H.265 files that are used by all modern editing software. Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 supports timecode, so the recordings from all cameras will be timecode matched and automatically synchronized when doing multicam editing.

Plus when you’re ready to edit, the media can be mounted directly on your computer without file copying.

You get built in monitoring with histograms and focus peaking so you don’t have to rig additional external monitoring. URSA Broadcast G2 is extremely mobile so you can shoot like a broadcaster, but you get the quality of film!
