Upgrade your real-time compositing for keying live action video with the Ultimatte 12 Keyer Advanced Compositing Processor from Blackmagic Design. This latest version of the Ultimatte 12 adds 12G-SDI connectivity to advanced algorithms, improved spill suppression, color science and separation, and excellent color fidelity to help create truly photorealistic composites.

The Ultimatte 12 works in Ultra HD & HD with sub-pixel processing for an improved image. Designed for news, sports, and other types of production, this versatile unit offers realistic augmented reality layers and one-touch auto-keying. This 1 rack unit processor does not include the required Ultimatte Smart Remote 4.

Advanced Real-Time Compositing

Uses new algorithms and color science, improved edge handling, color separation, color fidelity, and spill suppression to create photorealistic composites in UHD 4K and HD, all in real time.


Designed for news, sports, narrative film and television, and entertainment productions using fixed cameras, static backgrounds, or virtual set systems. The ability to layer augmented reality objects enables talent to pre-visualize virtual sets when using a green screen.

Multicamera Use

New technology enables the Ultimatte 12 to add accurate keying parameters to multiple cameras, accounting for slight variations between the camera positions

Realistic Augmented Reality Layer

A new "realistic" layer compositing mode enables you to add translucent or tinted objects on top of the foreground.

One-Touch Keying

One-touch keying dramatically lessens the time it takes to pull a key, using the auto key to set over 100 parameters once your set is well lit and white balanced.

Advanced Image Processing

Advanced image processing algorithms and an immense color space are used to generate internal mattes, so different parts of the image can be processed separately based on the colors in each area. This processing produces fine detail on hair and smooths color and object transitions with both HD and UHD 4K video.

Highest Color Fidelity

Refined flare, edge, and transition processing enables you to remove the background without affecting the colors you want to retain, faithfully reproducing colors that are impossible on other keyers, such as a bright yellow dress in front of a green screen.

Shadows and Transparencies

Improved flare algorithms can remove green tinting and spill from almost anything, creating true, realistic looking virtual environments, even when using shadows or transparent objects with reflections.

High-Quality Interfaces

High-quality connections include an Ethernet port, a GPI tally trigger, 12G-SDI BNC ports that support up to UHD 4K video, and Program video outputs.

Dedicated Compositing Inputs

Dedicated connectors with loop outputs that are used for compositing include:



  • Background
  • Background matte
