Camera Control Ursa Mini 12K

PostFri May 13, 2022 1:15 pm

Hi, I have a setup with:

3x Ursa Mini 12K
2x Ursa Mini 4.6K G2
1x Studio 4k Pro
Mini Converter SDI to Fiber
ATEM Talkback Converter with Fiber 3G Modules
ATEM 4k Prodction

The camera control works for all cameras, but for the Ursa Mini 12K the saturation, contrast, lift, gamma, gain, and the color are not working.

Iris, Shutter, Tint... k
everything else works.

Have the ATEM already exchanged the same problem.
Otherwise no problems with the other cameras.
The camera IDs are correct.

Glad about your help

From memory, there is no colour corrector built into the 12K cameras, so you only get control over the basic settings.

That's correct- the 12k doesn't have full control like cameras intended for broadcast use.

It’s likely that whatever processing component that’s responsible for QT encoding is being utilized as the corrector. The cams that feature Prores recording lose the ability to encode QT when the color corrector is enabled. The 12K doesn’t encode Prores and the CC funtion is lacking.

Good Luck

It was made clear the moment the 12K was released it would not get CCU / Color control as it is a fully different sensor and processing. ;)

Just dont use the 12K's in Multicam setup.
