Camera 5.1.1 Update

PostMon May 28, 2018 1:34 am

We are happy to announce that Camera 5.1.1 is now available from our support site.

This update is for URSA Broadcast, URSA Mini Pro, URSA Viewfinder and URSA Studio Viewfinder and contains substantial improvements for lens iris control for servo zoom lenses. Our iris control is now much finer and more reactive giving continuous smooth iris adjustment for B4, PL and hybrid compact servo EF lenses. This is very useful for adjusting iris when live on air from the camera's slider in the heads up display or when connected to an ATEM Software Control or with the new ATEM Camera Control Panel.

The updates to the viewfinders are also necessary to ensure full compatibility with this new feature and improves compatibility with our Camera Fiber Converter as well.
