Blackmagic Design Product Price Changes (August 2022)

Blackmagic Design recently sent out an email to retailers detailing price changes—mostly increases—to nearly all of their products.

Here’s the message from Grant Petty, CEO of Blackmagic Design:


Due to inflation we have had to raise the price of some products today. Most price rises are quite small, but a few higher end products have risen more. It's a bit upsetting for us to have to raise prices as we have worked hard over the past year to keep prices stable. However, the good news is we have been able to reduce the price of a few products as well.

Overall we are hoping that the price increases for materials and electronic components might reverse in the future. Generally when prices rise, it's due to availability issues and often suppliers increase manufacturing capacity in response. So what this means is it could cause a glut of electronic components in the future. If that happens, we will be able to go back to our normal culture of reducing prices from time to time. We will keep an eye on our suppliers and pass on savings when we can.

We have included a full list of the changes below. The prices are in USD.

The largest price increase is with the ATEM Constellation 8K, which increased by $1,250 from $9,995 to $11,245. Fortunately, the new ATEM switchers released this year, including the ATEM Constellation HD and the ATEM SDI models, were spared from these price increases.

All Mini and Micro Converters have increased in price, which will make switching from an HDMI to SDI workflow all the more expensive.

Price Decreases

Not all BMD products have seen an increase in price. The following seven products have dropped in price. In the case of the Ultimatte 12 4K, the price has dropped from nearly $10K to just $2.5K.
