URSA Broadcast is two cameras in one!

The compact design, familiar controls and broadcast camera features are ideal for ENG style shooting and vital for working quickly when you’re trying to capture breaking news. Whether you’re in the studio or out in the field, URSA Broadcast will give you incredible image quality, accurate skin tones and vibrant colors that are far superior to cameras costing ten times more.
The key is URSA Broadcast's new extended video mode that produces pictures you don’t need to color grade so you can shoot, edit and get stories on air faster than ever before. 

Standard Media and File Formats

URSA Broadcast is the first professional broadcast camera designed to work with standard media cards and file formats that are compatible with virtually all broadcast systems and editing software. URSA Broadcast records onto inexpensive standard SD cards, UHS-II cards and CFast cards, and records 1080i or 2160p video into standard .mov files, with .mxf to be added in future updates.
URSA Broadcast records using DNx145, DNx220X or ProRes so the files will work with your existing broadcast systems and workflows. You also get a B4 lens mount that works with your existing lenses, or you can swap it for optional EF, F and PL lens mounts so you can use standard photographic lenses. 

Work in HD or Ultra HD

URSA Broadcast features an incredible 4K image sensor and a new extended video mode with better dynamic range and color fidelity. The image sensor is designed for both HD and Ultra HD so you get amazing texture and detail, accurate skin tones, vibrant color and high dynamic range video, all without the need for post production. That means you can shoot, edit and get stories on air fast! The high resolution sensor is a huge advantage, even when working in HD, because you get sub pixel image processing and superior anti-aliasing for super sharp images.
