Blackmagic Design announces Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro


The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro is available immediately for US$2,495 while the ATEM Mini Extreme and ATEM Mini Extreme ISO are available from US$995.

Blackmagic Design has announced a number of new products, including the ATEM Mini Extreme and the ATEM Mini Extreme ISO, as well as the Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro.

Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro, is an advanced model which adds professional features including a bright 1,500 nit, adjustable HDR touchscreen, built-in ND filters, a larger battery and support for an optional electronic viewfinder.

It has an EF mount, a Super 35 sensor with 13 stops of dynamic range, and features the latest Gen 5 colour science. Customers can use larger EF photographic lenses to create cinematic images with shallower depth of field and bokeh effects.

The ATEM Mini range models include 8 inputs, 6 DVEs, 4 chroma keyers, 6 macro buttons, SuperSource and a 16-way multi-view. Both offer a recording engine, with the ISO model capturing a total of 9 streams.

In an additional software update, ATEM 8.6, ATEM Mini Pro and Extreme users will be able to tether a mobile phone to the switcher. The ATEM switcher will automatically detect when a phone is connected and switch its internet connection, making the perfect mobile or on-location production solution.

Also available is the Blackmagic Web Presenter HD, a self-contained streaming solution that includes a broadcast-quality H.264 processor for direct streaming to platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and more.

The Web Presenter HD has a 12G-SDI input with down converter, so customers can connect HD or UltraHD equipment and stream in full 1080p video.
