Record more than two audio tracks on BM Cameras

PostTue Jan 12, 2021 9:57 am

Hi!

I've used several BM cameras and I always wonder why you have several audio inputs (and on the URSA mini Pro even a switch between listening to channel 1/2 and 3/4) but you can only record 2 at a time.

Do you know is this is hardware-limited (only 2 ADs or whatever) or is this a software issue that could be fixed?

Am I the only one needing this function?

Thanks for you answers,
Jann

This has been a promised feature since the release of UMP Gen 1 - but has yet to be implemented.
Unfortunately no time frame has been announced for this feature. So we don't know if and when BMD will support this.

Is there any chance to receive some confirmed information or even a roadmap for this? Its quite sad to not at all know what to expect…
