Blackmagic have released a plethora of new products at NAB this year including new micro converters, cameras, production switchers and much more. The highlights for live video streamers include:
The Micro Converter BiDirectional SDI/HDMI is like having two micro converters in one, allowing you to convert SDI to HDMI and at the same time converting HDMI to SDI in any combination of SD and HD formats up to 1080p60 all at the same time.
The Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is a pretty cool camera by the looks of it, due for release in September it looks like it is high performing in low light situations with 13 stops of dynamic range and dual native ISO up to 25,600, we are keen to see how this camera performs but from all accounts it sounds like it should do a great job.
And last but not least the ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K which has all the features of the ATEM TVS HD plus Ultra HD capabilities and some additional SDI inputs. It features the all new ATEM Advanced Chroma Key and the Fairlight audio mixer that includes pro audio features such as 6 band parametric EQ, compressor, limiter, audio channel split to dual mono, expander/noise gate, pan, stereo simulator on analog and mic inputs and an audio delay on analog inputs.
We are excited to get out hands on all of this new Blackmagic gear!
