Blackmagic Ultimatte 12 Keyer Advanced Compositing Processor



The Blackmagic Ultimatte 12 is an advanced real time compositing processor designed for the next generation of broadcast graphics with one touch keying, incredible image processing and 12G-SDI for Ultra HD.  Broadcast graphics professionals will appreciate the ability to use virtual sets, advanced algorithms, and colour science that provide improved edge handling, colour separation, fidelity, and spill suppression.



The Ultimatte works in Ultra HD & HD with sub pixel processing for an improved image. It has numerous outputs and connections, and is compatible with a wide range of video standards. It works with both fixed cameras and static backgrounds, or automated virtual set systems.

It features entirely new algorithms and colour science that deliver true photorealistic composites. You get incredible edge handling, greater colour separation, amazing colour fidelity and better spill suppression than ever before, even in dark shadow areas or through transparent objects such as windows! The high performance 12G-SDI design gives you the power to work in Ultra HD and HD with sub pixel processing for amazing image quality. Imagine presenting the weather, sports, news and entertainment in a cinematic quality environment, all composited in real time.

You can also use Ultimatte 12 to layer computer generated augmented reality objects into a scene, complete with realistic transparency that your talent can walk behind! Ultimatte 12 is also perfect for on set pre visualization in television and film production because it lets actors and directors see the virtual sets while they’re shooting against a green screen.

The software is easily updated with the USB-C connection, and configuration is managed with the Ultimatte’s IP address which is set using the set-up utility while connected via USB. The physical size is one rack size unit.
