Blackmagic Unveils Game-Changing Camera for Apple’s Vision Pro Headset: URSA Cine Immersive

Blackmagic Design breaks new ground with the URSA Cine Immersive camera, specifically designed to capture content for Apple’s vision-pushing VR headset, Vision Pro. This powerhouse camera redefines cinematic capture for the immersive world of virtual reality.

Immerse Yourself in Every Frame:

The URSA Cine Immersive boasts a custom-built stereoscopic 3D lens system with dual 8K sensors, capturing a staggering 180-degree field of view. This, combined with spatial audio support, creates a truly immersive experience that places viewers right in the heart of the action. Each eye is treated to exceptional detail and clarity with a resolution of 8,160 x 7,200, while 16 stops of dynamic range guarantee accurate color reproduction in any lighting scenario. To further elevate the immersive experience, the camera shoots smooth, stereoscopic 3D content at a remarkable 90 frames per second.

Built to Endure, Designed for Ease:

The URSA Cine Immersive is crafted from a robust magnesium alloy chassis, ensuring durability, and a lightweight yet resilient carbon fiber polycarbonate composite skin. Dual 5-inch HDR touchscreens provide intuitive control and monitoring, while an external color status LCD keeps essential shooting information readily available. Connectivity is comprehensive, featuring 12G-SDI for video output, 10G Ethernet for high-speed networking, USB-C for external storage, and professional XLR audio ports. Reliable power delivery is ensured via an 8-pin Lemo connector.

Effortless Workflow and Seamless Collaboration:

The integrated 8TB Blackmagic Media Module offers ample storage for capturing roughly two hours of 8K stereoscopic video in Blackmagic RAW format. Additionally, the camera supports Cloud Store, enabling seamless media upload and synchronization via the 10G Ethernet connection, ideal for collaborative workflows.

Blackmagic and DaVinci Resolve: A Perfect Union

To complement the URSA Cine Immersive, Blackmagic Design is releasing an update to their industry-acclaimed DaVinci Resolve editing software. This update introduces a new immersive video viewer, allowing editors to fine-tune pan, tilt, and roll of clips for optimal viewing on both traditional 2D monitors and the Apple Vision Pro headset itself.

Pricing and Availability:

Blackmagic Design has yet to announce the official pricing for the URSA Cine Immersive camera. Considering the Blackmagic URSA Cine 12K camera, the new immersive camera is expected to be similarly priced, with the addition of the specialized dual-lens system factored in. This camera is a significant leap forward in capturing content for virtual reality experiences, and its seamless integration with Apple’s Vision Pro headset makes it a truly groundbreaking offering.
