Blackmagic Design Announces New Blackmagic Web Presenter 4K

Date: 29/07/2021
Blackmagic Design Announces New Blackmagic Web Presenter 4K

Blackmagic Design today announced the new

addition to the Blackmagic Web Presenter family. This new Blackmagic Web

Presenter 4K model has an upgraded Ultra HD resolution H.264 encoder for live

streaming in native Ultra HD. The new Web Presenter 4K is a compact design that

includes a 12G-SDI input with down converter, so customers can select to stream

in 1080p HD or 2160p Ultra HD resolutions. This new model also simulates a USB

webcam when connected to computers, and the USB webcam feature also supports

1080p HD or 2160p Ultra HD resolutions.


Blackmagic Web Presenter 4K is available

immediately from Blackmagic Design resellers worldwide for US$695.


Blackmagic Web Presenter is a complete streaming

solution that includes a professional hardware streaming engine for direct

streaming via Ethernet to YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and more. It’s just like a

modern broadcast television transmitter for a new global streaming audience.

Plus the built in USB connections work like a webcam, so customers can connect

a computer and use any streaming software, or even Skype or Zoom. For

redundancy, customers can stream to the internet via Ethernet or connect a 5G

or 4G phone to use mobile data. Web Presenter also includes a technical

monitoring output that includes video, audio meters, trend graphs and even SDI

technical data.


Blackmagic Web Presenter supports the most

popular streaming platforms. Plus the built in hardware streaming engine has

been designed for live streaming at professional broadcast quality. That means

customers get a self contained solution for live streaming that works without

dropped frames. Customers only need to connect it to the internet. Setup is

easy, as the Web Presenter Utility software lets customers select the streaming

platform and update the streaming key.


Blackmagic Web Presenter is a self

contained solution that includes a powerful hardware encoder, software for

connecting to streaming platforms, and network connections. That means

customers don’t need to buy an expensive computer or use complicated streaming

software. Simply connect an SDI video source such as a live production switcher

or a camera, then connect to the internet using the built in Ethernet

connection. Or plug in a mobile phone to use mobile data. With settings built

in for popular streaming platforms, customers simply need to enter a streaming

key and press on air. Plus customers can simultaneously use the USB webcam

output to connect to a computer, allowing other video software to be used.


If users are streaming from a remote location, or

customers need a backup for the main Ethernet connection, customers can plug in

an Apple or Android phone to connect to the internet via mobile data. For

convenience, there are USB connections on both the front and rear panel that

can be used for tethering phones. Plus it works with the latest high speed 5G

phones, as well as 4G phones. Blackmagic Web Presenter will auto detect when a

phone is connected and switch its internet connection to use it. Customers can

select Ethernet or phone priority, which makes phone internet backup fully

automatic.


Blackmagic Web Presenter features two USB

connections that operate as a simple webcam source. That means customers can

plug into any computer and work with any video software. The software is

tricked into thinking the web presenter is a common webcam, but it's really a

broadcast quality SDI video source. That guarantees compatibility with any

video software in full resolution 1080 HD or even 2160p Ultra HD quality,

depending on the model. Web Presenter works with any video software including

Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype, Open Broadcaster, XSplit Broadcaster and more.


Traditional broadcast transmitters are critical

equipment in a television station, however now the streaming server is just as

critical because millions of viewers can be watching globally. To help,

Blackmagic Web Presenter includes a feature rich technical monitoring output. The

graphics based monitoring output includes a video view, audio meters with

accurate ballistics, trend graphs for codec data rates and cache fill, plus a

summary of the streaming settings and detailed SDI technical information. Plus

the technical monitoring output works in full 1080 HD and outputs to both SDI

and HDMI. That means customers can use an SDI router for monitoring multiple

units, or connect a simple HDMI TV.


The Blackmagic Web Presenter Utility software

provides a single place to manage multiple web presenters and to update the

settings and software. Simply plug directly into the front of the web

presenter’s USB connection, or connect using Ethernet so customers can

configure remotely, which is important when users are managing multiple remote

sites. The familiar menus and controls make it very easy to set up a live

event, so customers can get started fast. Plus the front panel LCD menus have

the same settings and controls. The Blackmagic Web Presenter Utility software

is included free and runs on both Mac and Windows platforms.


Blackmagic Web Presenter includes a 12G-SDI input

with support for all HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60. A 12G-SDI loop

output is included enabling customers to loop video through more than one web

presenter, so customers can stream to multiple services. Blackmagic Web

Presenter features Teranex conversion technology on the SDI input for

incredibly clean looking video. Blackmagic Web Presenter takes the incoming HD

or Ultra HD input signal and automatically converts it to high quality, low

data rate 1080p HD or high resolution 2160p60 Ultra HD depending on the model,

which is then sent to the hardware H.264 encoder for streaming.


Blackmagic Web Presenter includes redundant

features to help ensure customers stay online. Customers get dual internet

connections, so customers can connect to the internet using the built in

Ethernet or a tethered phone for 5G or 4G mobile data. Plus the internet

automatically switches in case of an outage. Or customers can use 2 separate

units to stream to both the primary and secondary YouTube servers. With both AC

and DC inputs, customers can use a broadcast battery pack for redundant power.


While Blackmagic Web Presenter can send video to

a wide range of streaming services, it can also be used as a private broadcast

SDI video link between studios. The ATEM Streaming Bridge is a video converter

that lets customers receive the H.264 stream from Blackmagic Web Presenter and

then convert it back to SDI video. This means customers can send video between

remote locations across their local Ethernet network, or via the internet

globally. That's all possible due to the built in H.264 hardware codec that

decodes the Web Presenter stream.


Blackmagic Web Presenter is based on the modular

Teranex Mini design allowing desktop or rack use. The extremely portable design

is only 5.5 inches wide, which means customers can mount 3 in a single rack

unit, perfect when customers need to stream to multiple independent services

all at the same time. Plus customers can combine Blackmagic Web Presenter with

other products such as the ATEM Television Studio HD switcher for a live

production and streaming solution in a single rack unit.


"We are so excited to have this new model of

Blackmagic Web Presenter that adds streaming in both HD and Ultra HD" said

Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. "This means you can choose between

lower data rates of HD, or full resolution Ultra HD at the click of a button.

Plus the USB webcam feature has been upgraded to Ultra HD. This really is an

exciting model and we cannot wait to see more live streaming in Ultra HD!"
