  • With distributed ‘remote’ workflows now commonplace, live production teams are commonly scattered across the globe. While this presents challenges, it also offers opportunities for flexible and agile broadcasters to react quickly to the growing demand from audiences for more personal, localized experiences tailored specifically to their interests or local communities. In sporting fields, warehouses, basements and offices broadcasters are responding with innovative new ways of communicating to this rapidly growing, and evermore discerning audience. Blackmagic Design’s challenge was to empower these creators with the tools to facilitate the effective live streaming of broadcast-quality content beyond the traditional studio environment.

  • Featuring built-in live streaming hardware Studio Camera 6K Pro can be placed remotely and controlled from anywhere in the world. Via the high-speed ethernet port or mobile phone connected to the USB-C it can generate a live stream that can be sent directly to the internet or received by remote switchers. Rather than relying on expensive, cumbersome SMPTE fibre cables typical to traditional multi-camera workflows, Studio Camera 6K Pro utilizes inexpensive consumer ethernet cables for connection, communication and power over large distances. This means independent producers can now establish professional broadcast camera chains for a fraction of the usual cost.

  • Until now, professional live broadcasting was the exclusive domain of well-resourced production companies who could afford the complex infrastructure, extensive crews and time required to develop such content. With Studio Camera 6K Pro Blackmagic Design continues to lead the democratization of live video production technology with an affordable, intuitive design. This has a number of meaningful impacts. With the predominance of multi-national streaming services like Netflix, Apple and Amazon, preserving cultural diversity is critically important. The Studio Camera 6K Pro allows localized stories to be told affordably and professionally to a global audience; stories celebrating local identity, issues and events.

  • CINEMATIC IMAGE QUALITY Showcasing generation five Blackmagic colour science, the 6K image sensor offers the same imaging technology found in Hollywood digital film cameras. Featuring 6144 x 3456 resolution and framerates up to 60fps, it provides virtually limitless creative flexibility for live broadcasts, with additional scope to stabilize, zoom and re-frame shots for expansive wide angles or intimate close-ups without compromising image quality for final HD or 4K outputs. DYNAMIC RANGE Possessing 13 stops of dynamic range, the 6K sensor retains more detail in the lightest and darkest limits of an image. Built-in DaVinci Resolve colour correction adds real-time, remote colour balancing, instilling live productions with the cinematic qualities of a Hollywood film. INTUITIVE ERGONOMICS Oversized, ergonomic dials and customizable function buttons offer quick and intuitive access to diagnostic settings without releasing the handles. Operators can remain focused on capturing the shot at hand, even when following a moving subject. AFFORDABLE LENSES The cost and complexity of professional live production lenses is an on-going hurdle for independent broadcasters. The Studio Camera 6K Pro’s active EF lens mount enables remote zoom and focus control, letting broadcasters leverage inexpensive photographic lenses.
