The BC-100 features two 3G-SDI outputs as well as a single HDMI output

Datavideo has introduced its BC-100 camera that has been designed to film in changing light conditions. The Full HD camera includes a 4/3-inch sensor, an MFT lens mount and 3D noise reduction. With real-time HDR capturing in 4:4:4 colour depth, all information is stored for postproduction. The MFT mount reportedly allows the use of a large array of lenses from manufacturers such as Leica, Panasonic and Sony. The BC-100 can also be used with a lens convertor from companies such as Aputure. The camera features two 3G-SDI outputs as well as a single HDMI output. Professional audio can be added with two full-size XLR inputs with 48V phantom power. Ideally, the BC-100 should be complemented with a TLM-700K viewfinder monitor supporting HDMI loopthrough.

Staying with cameras, the manufacturer has developed the PTR-10 remote camera head to give users the possibility of mounting any small camera in an inaccessible location and controlling it from a distance. All the connections on the back of the camera are transported through the PTR-10 and break out on the bottom of the unit to prevent stress on the cables. The PRT-10 is compatible with DVIP and can be controlled with the RMC-300. It also accepts RS-422 for control. An HDBaseT model is also in development.


Datavideo has also redesigned its ITC-100 intercom system. The basis of the IP-300 is an IP network that runs on standard Ethernet up to 100m in length or up to 200m with the optional VP-300R. The system includes tally lights that can be mounted onto any camera and four beltpacks that feature a tally light so the cameraperson knows when the camera is live. The ITC-300 can handle eight beltpacks for individual communication but even more if a party line is used. It is compatible with existing IP networks and can easily be routed. Each cable has a locking mechanism that slides over a standard RJ45 connector, securing the connection to the beltpack to prevent connection loss.

The SE-500MU, meanwhile, is the Taiwanese company’s first UHD switcher in a 1U format. It accepts four HDMI 2.0 in resolutions from 720p to 2160p so that multiple devices can be hooked up to a single projector. It is also suitable for switching between different cameras in multiple different resolutions. The HDMI output is scalable and there’s also a secondary assignable output.

Finally, Datavideo has developed two new recorders. The HDR-80 is a desktop model, while the HDR-90 is a rackmounted version. Both feature up to 4K recording in ProRes profiles up to 4Kp60 and include a 5-inch touch panel. The recorders have various options for recording 4K material and feature 12G connectivity for 4K over a single SDI wire.
