Bi-Directional Optical Fiber
Included with the Blackmagic Design Studio Camera HD 2 is a user upgradeable fiber optic connection, allowing you to make use of a single thin cable that connects cameras to your live production switchers. This will enable you to get audio, video, talkback and tally over long distances.
The built-in Talkback allows the camera operator and the crew to communicate during production. Provided is general aviation headset connections that gives you the option from a wide range of aviation headsets, to achieve better quality talkback headsets with better noise cancelling.
The Tally SDI is also supported and is used on the ATEM range of live production switchers – this means that the tally from the switcher is broadcast to all cameras from all video outputs of the ATEM switcher and then sent to the Blackmagic Studio Camera via the program video connection.
Broadcast Grade Connections
The Blackmagic Design Studio Camera HD 2 features broadcast quality connections so that you can get optional bi-directional optical fiber and SDI connections for connecting to live production switchers or even recorders. Included with the Blackmagic Design Studio Camera HD 2 is a professional aviation headset jack, stereo XLR microphone inputs, and much more.
Integrated Control Panel
The Blackmagic Design Studio Camera HD 2 sports an integrated control panel that allows you to quickly and easily access the most crucial control settings via the built-in row of buttons that can be found below the viewfinder. The control panel allows you to easily adjust your iris and focus control with the touch of a button; dedicated buttons that also enables you to swiftly switch between film and video modes, and more.
Remote Camera Control
Full camera control can be achieved from your ATEM live production switcher. This can be done via the SDII connections for more professional production. The camera also features a full DaVinci Resolve primary colour corrector that allows you to colour balance your cameras as well as being more creative with your live production.
Blackmagic 3G-SDI Shield for Arduino
The Blackmagic 3G-SDI Shield for Arduino is an Arduino expansion board or “shield” that allows filmmakers in studio to set up their own custom control solutions for Blackmagic Design cameras. The 3G-SDI Shield for Arduino for Arduino simply attaches to these platforms and then supports inserting camera control commands into the 3G-SDI link to the camera.
External or Built-in Microphones
When live location sound is required at productions, you’ll be able to use the built-in stereo microphone or simply just plug in professional external microphones, even with phantom power, into the camera’s XLR connectors. The audio from the Blackmagic Design Studio Camera HD 2 is automatically embedded with the video signal for connection to the ATEM live production switcher's built-in audio mixer.
