Compatible Camera Question

PostTue Oct 08, 2019 9:21 pm

I am planning a 5 camera live setup for church streaming using a ATEM 4K switcher. I will be using 2 BMD Studio Camera 4K for the main cameras. My question is What would my best option be for the other 3 cameras? Option are the BMD Micro Studio 4K which matches the sensor of the Studio cameras or, the BMD Pocket Cinema Camera 4K which has the MFT size sensor and built in monitor. Is the BMDPCC compatible with the Studio Cameras?

Thank you,
Curtis Stanley

I would go with the Micro Studio. Good color matching and you can add a cheap HDMI monitor for preview if you have an operator for the cameras. You will need an SDI distribution amp, unless you have a video hub, to supply return feed to all the cameras.
Pocket Cinema Camera is not ideal for live connection to the ATEM.

I built a small Windows application that allows you to do the CCU operation from a Behringer Midi device. Just need to fix a small bug with the Tint value that messup up URSA Broadcast cameras.

Ian is right. Go with the Micro Studio camera. You can paint those cameras with the ATEM software, and also (depending on the lens you select) remotely control focus and/or zoom.
