Blackmagic Design Studio Converter
With 10G Ethernet on the Pro model, you can connect all signals to the camera with one Ethernet IP link connection. That means the camera feed, return program feed, timecode, reference, tally, talkback, and control are all sent down the single cable. That’s the same benefits of SMPTE fiber, but the standard 10G copper Ethernet cable is much lower cost. The Blackmagic Studio Converter allows the breakout of all the video, audio, and talkback connections at the studio end. It also includes a massive power supply that powers the camera down the Ethernet cable, so you don’t need a power source near the camera. Plus you can fit 2 per rack unit using a Blackmagic Universal Rack Shelf.
Low-Cost SMPTE Fiber Style Workflow
The Blackmagic Studio Converter handles all video conversions at the switcher end plus adds power to the Ethernet cable. That means you don’t need to connect power to the camera.
Powers from DC or 10G Ethernet
It has a large power supply that adds PoE power to the Ethernet cable so you don’t need any power connection to the camera. That’s a great solution when there’s no power available where the cameras are placed.
