Blackmagic Camera 4.7 Update – RAW Output for Micro Studio Camera

By Richard Lackey

Blackmagic has released Camera 4.7 Update enabling RAW via SDI for Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K and other improvements to the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera.

Camera 4.7 Update brings a number of significant improvements to both cameras. While raw output via SDI on the Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K may make the headline, many users will most appreciate an extra 2 stops of exposure sensitivity. The update makes these already flexible cameras even more powerful.

New Features for Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K

  • Added 720p50, 720p59.94 and 720p60 format support.
  • Improved sensor exposure sensitivity by 2 stops.
  • Added new gain setting range which now goes from -12dB to +12dB. ATEM will need a new software update to access these new ranges via Blackmagic SDI Control Protocol.
  • Added RAW SDI output feature. Refer to the user manual for information about capturing and unpacking RAW SDI video.
  • Added support for PTZ communication on Expansion port via VISCA. Refer to the user manual for protocol details.
  • Added support for PTZ commands in the Blackmagic SDI Control Protocol.
  • Added preview tally support for the front tally light.
  • Added tally indication on the HDMI display overlay.
  • Added indication to the user that camera is genlocked on the HDMI display overlay.
  • Added option to change camera frame rate via S.Bus.
  • Added option to toggle auto focus via S.Bus.
  • Added option to toggle record via S.Bus for external recorders.
  • Added feature to pass through remote record commands as SDI and HDMI record triggers for external recorders.

New features for Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera

  • Added record start/stop trigger on HDMI output.
  • Added HDMI timecode output support.
  • Added indication to the user that camera is genlocked in the HDMI display overlay.
  • Added option to change frame rate settings via S.Bus.
  • Added option to change codec settings via S.Bus.
  • Added option to toggle auto focus via S.Bus.
  • Fixed issue with a small vertical pixel offset between HDMI output and RAW recording on Micro → continue…

Blackmagic unveils DeckLink 8K Pro capture card for ‘real time 8K workflows’

General opinion seems to be that 8K is a long way off, but it’s actually coming much faster than people think, and the industry is gearing up (literally) for it. Case in point: meet the new Blackmagic DeckLink 8K Pro capture card that ‘breaks new ground in high quality’ by supporting formats ranging from SD, to HD, Ultra HD, 4K, 8K and 8K DCI.

Oh, and it can also handle 64 channels of audio, stereoscopic 3D, and high frame rates… you know… just cause.

The card can do all of this because it’s the world’s first to feature quad link 12G‑SDI bi-directional connections that Blackmagic says “can be used to either capture or playback quad link 8K, or for the simultaneous capture and playback of single or dual link SDI sources.” And as far as colors go, the DeckLink 8K Pro can work in 12‑bit RGB 4:4:4 as well as Rec. 2020, which is, “a massive color space designed for high dynamic range Ultra HD and digital cinema work in 4K and 8K.”

All of this from this little powerhouse of a card:

Of course, the bit Blackmagic won’t tell you is that you’ll need a monstrous computer to make any of this work… and an 8K monitor to boot. But if you were paying attention at the beginning of this article you’d already know: 8K is coming and it’s coming fast. Professional videographers and video editors may want to start preparing for it now.

And if that prep involves buying this monster of a card, you should know that the DeckLink 8K Pro will be available starting in early January for $645 USD. For more information, check out the full release below or visit Blackmagic’s website for a breakdown of → continue…
