Blackmagic Ultimatte 12 HD Mini
More than the world's best keyer, the all-new Ultimatte 12 is an advanced real-time compositing processor designed for the next generation of broadcast graphics. Ultimatte 12 features all-new algorithms and color science that deliver true photo-realistic composites. You get incredible edge handling, greater color separation, amazing color fidelity and better spindle suppression than ever before, even in shadows or through transparent objects such as windows!
Add an Ultimatte 12 to any camera!
When you're working live with multiple cameras filming from different angles, it's almost insurmountable that each camera displays the screen slightly differently. The single keyer built into the switcher must then be readjusted for each camera angle. The new Ultimatte 12 overcomes these problems when each camera has a separate Ultimatte. That means that each Ultimatte can be tuned to the display of a specific camera! With a special Ultimatte on each camera.
Generate live virtual environments for broadcast!
Whether for news broadcasts, sports, film production or entertainment programs, Ultimatte 12 has the power for incredible composites that can put your talent into any scene! In addition, the new Ultimatte 12 models include built-in frame stores, so you don't need live video sources for all inputs. You can also use Ultimatte 12 to place computer-generated augmented reality foreground objects in a scene, complete with realistic transparency for your talent to walk behind! Ultimatte 12 is also perfect for on-set pre-visualization in film production, as actors and directors can watch the scene while they're filming.
Create realistic virtual sets with fixed cameras
Now you can create huge sets even from small apartments or a basement! That's because all Ultimatte 12 models have frame stores, so you can load pre-rendered still frames from a 3D-modeled broadcast set. This is a revolution in live production because you can now use a virtual set even if you don't have room for a physical set! Just use multiple cameras, each with an Ultimatte 12 with a background frame. Because the backgrounds are pre-rendered, they can be more photo-realistic than a traditional virtual set. When the cameras don't move, the backgrounds look perfect! Plus Ultimatte 12 is affordable, so you can use more cameras!
New algorithms and expanded color space!
All Ultimatte 12 models, even Ultimatte 12 HD Mini, have the same incredibly advanced image processing algorithms and a huge internal color space! This means that all models produce identical quality compositions! Processing automatically generates internal mattes so that different parts of the image are processed separately based on the colors in each area. It's like having the power of multiple Ultimatte keyers all working together on the same image! You get fine edge detail where it's needed most, such as on hair, and smoother transitions between colors or other objects in the scene. Everything is handled by the sub-pixel processing designed for incredible quality and clarity.
Add transparent layers and images
Adding extra transparent objects, such as colored or tinted glass and computer graphics, is virtually impossible with a traditional keyer. That's because you can't remove a blue or green screen from a semi-transparent colored object without changing the object's original color. Now, with Ultimatte 12, you get a revolutionary new layer composition mode that lets you add tinted objects on top of the foreground image. That enables a whole new generation of realistic translucent glass looks in broadcast graphics! This means that when you look through the object, or your talent runs behind it, the toned colors are accurately preserved, making the shot look completely realistic!
Reproduce and maintain difficult colors faithfully
With Ultimatte 12 you get new advanced flare, edge and transition processing, so you can remove the background without affecting the colors you want to keep! This means you can preserve and faithfully reproduce colors that are impossible on other keyers, such as a bright yellow dress in front of a green screen! Ultimatte 12 is smart enough to isolate and treat different parts of the image separately, while also keeping the color transitions between areas smooth. You get the highest quality composition, so the final output looks photo-realistic. Unlike other keyers, Ultimatte 12 delivers crisp, clear images with vibrant colors that pop!
Key and Composite Images with Shadows and Transparency!
The improved flare algorithms in Ultimatte 12 can remove greens and spill from anything, which is one of the reasons Ultimatte 12 creates real, realistic looking virtual environments! That also means you don't have to worry about shadows or transparent objects with reflections. Ultimatte 12 automatically samples the colors, creates seamless mattes for walls, floors and other parts of the image, then applies the necessary corrections. Shadows are correctly mapped and composed on the new background, spills are removed and transparent objects are perfectly processed!
