Live Production Switching

It’s perfect for broadcasters, professional sports, concerts, seminars, or even the new emerging generation of web broadcasters using platforms such as YouTube Live, Facebook Live and Twitch.tv. You can switch between multiple cameras, game consoles and computers in real time, all with broadcast quality transitions, graphics and effects! Both models feature clean professional switching so there’s never a glitch when changing sources. That means you can even use it as a front end controller for your AV system and switch between multiple sources with the press of a button!
Extremely Portable Design
ATEM Television Studio is a true professional switcher that’s incredibly tiny, making it compact and portable enough to use anywhere! The all in one design includes a built in AC power supply, full front panel controls with input source buttons for switching, a built in LCD screen, spin knob and more. It’s small enough to use on the desktop, or it can be mounted in equipment racks using the optional Teranex Mini Rack Shelf. That means it fits alongside other Blackmagic Design products such as Teranex Mini converters, HyperDeck Studio Mini recorders, Blackmagic MultiView 4 or Blackmagic Web Presenter, all in a single rack unit.
For complex, faster paced productions, the ATEM Television Studio Pro HD is a professional control panel with built in switcher. You get a professional hardware control panel with high quality buttons that makes it faster to switch sources, add stunning effects, smoothly manage and color grade remote cameras, mix audio, and key graphics, all live and in real time!
Software Control Panel
For the ultimate in creativity and control ATEM Television Studio include a free, elegant software control panel. Use the control panel and parameter palettes to switch cameras live, change transitions and adjust key settings. You can also load graphics for display or keying, control the hardware audio mixer, automate clip playback from decks and program and activate macros. The powerful camera control lets you remotely adjust iris and focus, camera settings and color correction, all via SDI. Work alone on your laptop computer or, for more complex events, use multiple laptops and people to switch, control cameras, mix audio, and manage graphics and media, all at the same time! If you’re new to live production then you can start with ATEM Television Studio HD, then upgrade to ATEM Television Studio Pro HD as you grow and do more complex work!
SDI and HDMI Inputs
With four 3G-SDI and four HDMI inputs, you can connect up to 8 cameras, game consoles, computers or other sources and work in all SD and HD formats up to 1080p60! That means you can start with affordable HDMI consumer cameras, or work with professional SDI broadcast cameras. You also get reference input, analog audio in, RS-422 PTZ control, and Ethernet for connecting hardware or software control panels! Unlike other switchers, all video inputs feature automatic frame re-synchronizers, so you don’t need expensive genlock cameras. This means you can plug in any video source and it just works!
Professional SDI Outputs
ATEM Television Studio includes professional SDI program and aux outputs, along with SDI and HDMI outputs for multiview monitoring. The SDI program output lets you connect to professional decks and recorders, like HyperDeck Studio Mini, so you can record your program at the highest possible quality. The multiview SDI and HDMI outputs make it easy to monitor your program on virtually any display, including consumer HD televisions! The Aux output lets you send your switched program or a clean feed without graphics and overlays out to another display, deck, or even massive screens on stage behind a performer!
Built in MultiView
When you’re creating a live program from multiple cameras, it’s important to be able to see all of the video sources at the same time. The multiview output lets you see up to 8 channels of video on a single HDMI television or SDI monitor! You can see all of your cameras, tally indicators, graphics, preview and final program output all on the same display at the same time. Customize labels, see audio meters, set safe area markers, and more! Connect any standard HDTV to get perfect multi camera monitoring in any location!
Select and instantly use broadcast quality transitions like mixes, wipes, dips and more when switching between sources! You can adjust the duration of transitions, along with an incredibly wide range of options including border, border color and width, position, direction and more! There are 18 completely customizable transitions that will give your HD program that high end broadcast look! You can also use the DVE for transitions, create graphic wipes, and even stingers when you use it with a HyperDeck Studio Mini playing back 4:4:4:4 graphics with fill and key back to the switcher!
ATEM Television Studio features built in talkback that takes advantage of rarely used SDI channels 15 and 16 to send talkback audio to and from the camera. There's also headset connections on the front panel for talking to and listening from cameras that support SDI talkback. The talkback from the camera is embedded in the SDI video feed from the camera to the switcher. If you connect the talkback SDI outputs of the switcher back to the camera, then the director’s talkback audio is sent to the cameras along with tally and camera control. The 4 SDI outputs feature talkback to cameras with mix minus. This lets you send program audio back to an interviewee so they hear everything except themselves, and won’t be distracted by hearing a delayed audio echo.
Titles and Graphics
Store up to 20 of your own custom graphics or logos and get them on air in seconds! Simply upload the files from the media management page of the software control panel into the ATEM’s media pool, then select any file to play through the 2 built in media players when you need them. The media players use flash memory, so your graphics are saved after the power is turned off! There’s even an included Photoshop plug-in that lets you upload graphics from Photoshop directly into the ATEM media pool from a computer over an ethernet network. Now you can get custom titles and graphics on air in seconds!
Real Time Keyers
ATEM Television Studio HD includes an upstream keyer with full chroma keying for green screen and blue screen shots. That means you can remove the screen and add weather maps, graphics, and incredible virtual sets behind the on-screen talent! The upstream keyer works with chroma, patterns, shapes, and linear keys. You also get 2 downstream keyers for adding graphics, logos and bugs to your video. Because ATEM Television Studio HD is so small, you can even install a HyperDeck Studio Mini in the rack right next to it. You can use it as a source for ProRes 4:4:4:4 motion graphics files with alpha channels that you can key over your live video in real time!
Professional 3G-SDI Connections
This model feature professional 3G-SDI connections that are multi-rate and support SD SDI, HD-SDI and 3G-SDI video formats. That means you can work with any professional camera or deck in all formats ranging from NTSC/PAL up to 720p, 1080i and even 1080p up to 60 frames per second!
Professional Audio Mixer
Use the professional audio mixer to mix camera audio with audio from the analog XLR inputs, as well as other HDMI sources, like computers and gaming consoles. You can fully mix audio right from the front panel, or you can use the audio mixer control tab on your Mac or PC to get a complete on screen, multi track mixing interface with level meters! Easily direct camera and external audio with precision level and balance adjustments, quickly enable and disable channels, or set audio to automatically follow the video source!
Remote Camera Control
Get full control of your cameras right from the ATEM software control! The Blackmagic Studio Camera can be controlled via the SDI program feed to the camera, so you can control its built in camera settings and full color corrector, all remotely from the ATEM software control panel! There are two types of control interface, a CCU layout for traditional camera control style, or a color corrector interface which is the same as DaVinci Resolve’s primary color corrector so you can use all your color correction skills from DaVinci Resolve for adding incredible creativity to live production!
Aux SDI Output
ATEM Television Studio has an independent auxiliary output that’s perfect for feeding big video screens on stage, or can also be used to send "clean feeds" without on air graphics to recorders for program mastering. The front panel aux button makes it easy to select exactly what you want to send to the aux output. Auxiliary outputs can be selected to any video input, media players, the preview bus, test signals and more! Aux outputs are also fantastic for technical monitoring, such as when you are doing camera control, because it can be set to automatically switch to the camera you are adjusting.
