Creative video revolution
Blackmagic Design has grown rapidly to become one of the world’s leading innovators and manufacturers of creative video technology. Its philosophy is refreshing and simple – whatever it takes to give creatives the very best quality tools.
Blackmagic Design continues to develop groundbreaking innovations including 6G-SDI and 12G-SDI products, as well as stereoscopic 3D and Ultra HD workflows. The company’s founders have a long heritage in post-production editing and engineering, allowing Blackmagic Design to create some of the industry’s most talked about products.
From DeckLink capture cards, launched in 2002, through to high-quality codecs, Blackmagic Design has envisioned genuinely affordable, high-end video production workflows from acquisition through to delivery.
Headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, Blackmagic Design has sales offices across the USA, Asia and Europe. Its Middle East business is supported by regional distribution partner, MediaCast.
Digital Film Cameras
From its incredibly successful Pocket Cinema Camera family, through to the pioneering URSA Mini Pro 12K, Blackmagic Design offers a range of low cost, high-quality digital film cameras capable of reproducing incredibly accurate, balanced and beautiful looking images.
The ATEM range of production switchers offers powerful broadcast features, making it easy to create professional multi-camera productions whether you’re just starting out in your live streaming journey or are involved with more complex SDI-based and fibre channel workflows featuring URSA Broadcast G2.
DaVinci Resolve is the world’s only solution that combines editing, colour correction, visual effects, motion graphics and audio post-production all in one software tool. Recent features with a DaVinci Resolve workflow include the Oscar nominated Belfast, No Time to Die, Spider-Man: No Way Home and West Side Story.
Blackmagic Design software and hardware provide solutions for numerous Hollywood feature film and television productions as well as multi-camera studio, live event and outside broadcast in both HD and UltraHD.
- Hekayat: Symphonic Tales
During the pandemic, DaVinci Resolve underpinned an ambitious virtual premiere of Hekayat: Symphonic Tales at the Abu Dhabi Festival, bringing more than 128 remote musicians together in a virtual concert hall. Dubai-based production house Pixelhunters managed multiple video tracks within a DaVinci Resolve editing timeline.
“It’s the first time I’ve used editing software that is able to work with such a huge volume of data. Because of the scale of production, the music was changing all the time and deadlines were extremely challenging. DaVinci Resolve allowed us to handle a complex production smoothly,” says Illya Atanasov of Pixelhunters.
- Hella Mega
The 21 date US leg of the Hella Mega tour, featuring Green Day, Weezer and Fall Out Boy relied on an acquisition, control and delivery system from Blackmagic Design. Playing to up to 45,000 fans a night, Vis A Vis Video captured the action on stage with a fleet of URSA Broadcast cameras, delivering an IMAG screen mix from an ATEM 4 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K.
“Designed and built to be tour-friendly, the solution allows us to get in and out of places fast. It has all the flexibility needed to allow our engineers to plug in, test, go live and get out again quickly,” says Stuart Merser of Vis A Vis Video.
- Marvel’s Cinematic Universe
Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and The Winter Soldier relied on the Pocket Cinema Camera 6K to produce the skydiving sequences in the streaming series opening episode.
“The camera made sense for many reasons, including the ability to use high-quality, low weight stills lenses, but primarily because we could shoot in Blackmagic RAW. That gave us far greater control for subsequent VFX work and grading. We could set an exposure and be reasonably confident that nothing would clip and that we would retain sufficient detail in the shadows,” says cinematographer PJ Dillon.
