question

Could I use this devise to record video a black magic ursa pro? Bypassing CFast and the SD cards?
Asked by: Greg
You can record video from Blackmagic Design URSA Mini Pro via the USB Capture SDI 4K Plus. Just know that while the device supports SD/HD/3Ga/3Gb/3Ga-DL/3Gb-DS/6G (SMPTE 2081), it does not support 12G SDI.

Can I use this to output from the BMPCC4K to a 4K switcher?

Not if you intend on sending a 4K signal. The 4K on the BMPCC camera is only internal... the output of the camera is HD only.

question

Can this capture 4k raw from Sony's FS5 into Wirecast and into a Atomos Inferno ?
Asked by: matt
More than likely this product will not be able to process the RAW 4K signal that comes out of the FS5 with RAW Upgrade. We are not aware of an option for a capture device that will process the RAW signal and bring it in to Wirecast. Your best bet will be to do this through the FS5's HDMI output, which is 4K as well. The HDMI Model of this product is B&H # MA32090 and would be a better choice.https://bhpho.to/2fJBh1v

Asked by: Joe
The USB cable that works with the Magewell USB Capture SDI 4K Plus is a standard USB 3.0 cable. We can recommend B&H#PEUSB3AMAM3 or any other desired lengths.
