The Skaarhoj SDI B4 Link Connection is developed to get easy control of iris on an analog B4 lens for your URSA Mini and Studio Camera series from Blackmagic Design. Route the return SDI signal from your ATEM switcher between the SDI-B4 Link and your camera, to extract the iris information.
Skaarhoj is dedicated to making operation of broadcast hardware easier for people making live video and the Rack Fusion 1 is a great example of this dream in action. Furthermore, is a piece of hardware that will grow with you as your needs expand, regardless of whether they do so tomorrow or in two years.
This device is an independent unit, and requires no further configuration, than selecting the camera number you want to control via the selector switch. Skaarhoj SDI B4 Link Connection inherits all of the same features as our ETH-B4 Link but will work independently.
Skaarhoj is based on more than 15 years of service, survival through dot-com bubbles and dedication to quality, innovation and open source. You’ll be amazed by the complexity and details in each product.
