Bi-Directional Optical Fiber
Get video, audio, talkback and tally over long distances
The Blackmagic Studio Camera is the world’s first to include a built in fiber optic connection, allowing you to use a single thin tether cable to connect cameras to your live production switchers.

Built In Talkback
Use professional aviation headsets
The Blackmagic Studio Camera features built in talkback so the camera operator and crew can communicate at all times during production. You get general aviation headset connections so you can choose from a wide range of aviation headsets, so you get better quality talkback headsets with better noise canceling and a much lower cost. Setup is easy because talkback is embedded in the optical or SDI video connection to the camera, so you don’t have to run separate talkback cables!
Know when you’re on air!
The Blackmagic Studio camera supports the tally SDI standard used on the ATEM range of live production switchers. This means the tally from the switcher is broadcast to all cameras from all video outputs of the ATEM switcher and it’s sent to the Blackmagic Studio Camera via the program video connection. Tally lights illuminate automatically when your camera is live, and will stay illuminated during multiple camera transitions. With a light on the front for talent, and a light above the viewfinder for the operator, cast and crew can easily see which cameras are on air.
Broadcast Grade Connections
Professional connections for 24/7 reliability
Featuring broadcast quality connections you get bi-directional optical fiber and SDI connections for connecting to live production switchers or recorders. Also included is a professional aviation headsets jack, stereo XLR microphone inputs, and more. All connections are logically organized on the left and right sides of the camera, making them accessible and easy to use. Because the Blackmagic Studio Camera uses standard connectors, you don’t need expensive custom cables!
Massive 4 Hour Battery
Cover the whole event on a single charge!
The Blackmagic Studio Camera might be small, but it includes a massive battery that will power the camera for over 4 hours! This means you can run a simple optical fiber tether to remote locations and the camera is fully powered and self contained with full talkback, tally and return program feed. That’s perfect for live sports and other events where the cameras are long distances away from the switcher. When it’s time to connect power, an industry standard 12V 4 pin XLR power connector is built in for better strength and compatibility.
External or Built in Microphones
Professional audio live from the camera!
For productions that require live location sound, you can use the built in stereo microphone or plug in professional external microphones, even with phantom power, into the camera’s XLR connectors! This gives you fantastic quality live audio from your cameras and is super critical when covering live sports! Camera audio is automatically embedded with the video signal for connection to the ATEM live production switcher’s built in audio mixer.
