The World’s Most Advanced Live Production switcher
ATEM switches between SD, HD or Ultra HD video standards so you can form exciting live production with a wide range of video sources such as cameras, disk recorders and slide shows or animation from computers. You get powerful features such as chroma key, creative transitions, media pool, downstream keyers, audio mixer, multi-view and more!
ATEM switchers include advanced 6G-SDI and HDMI inputs that are SD, HD or Ultra HD switchable up to 2160p30. Every input supports embedded audio mixing and features a frame resynchronizer so you can use sources without genlock such as laptop computers for live PowerPoint™ presentations! You also get 2 balanced XLR audio inputs for connecting professional mixers and a HiFi audio input for consumer equipment like an iPod®.
Get all the outputs you need to record your video master and to broadcast your program to the audience at the event! ATEM includes program and down converted program outputs plus auxiliary outputs allowing clean feeds, perfect for connecting to giant outdoor LED screens, projectors, disk recorders, monitors and broadcast decks! The multi-view outputs are 1080i HD so you can use any TV or monitor. You also get a balanced XLR output of your audio mix, which is also embedded into all video outputs.
ATEM’s built-in multi view lets you monitor the switcher’s video inputs on a single SDI monitor or regular HDMI TV! Multi-view outputs in regular 1080i HD, so even if your broadcast is in SD or Ultra HD you can still use a standard TV for monitoring! You can customize the multi-view layout and also add custom labels. Multi-view makes it easy to watch your program, preview, and live sources all simultaneously on a single monitor and you can even choose from 4 different screen layouts!
Advanced Chroma Keyer
All ATEM switchers feature built-in chroma, luminance, linear and pattern keyers. ATEM switcher models included an extra 2 independent downstream keyers for logos, titles and other ‘on air’ graphics. That’s a massive number of keyers, all built-in as standard!
Ultra HD Massive 3840 x 2160 video resolution!
ATEM live production switchers are the world’s first Ultra HD live production switchers! Ultra HD operates at 4 times the resolution of 1080 HD video with a massive 3840 x 2160 frame size! The entire switcher can be set to Ultra HD and all media players, downstream keyers, upstream keyers, transitions, DVE and colour generators operate in native Ultra HD. Even if you’re working in SD or HD now, your ATEM live production switcher is always ready for Ultra HD whenever you need it!
Professional Audio Mixer
All ATEM switchers feature a powerful built-in multi-channel audio mixer! You can mix your camera audio and other video sources from both HDMI and SDI inputs, as well as external audio from the analogue XLR and HiFi audio inputs. You can use the ATEM audio mixer for direct input mixing or use audio follow video mixing where the audio automatically crossfades when switching from one input to another. The analogue audio inputs are great for microphones, audio mixers, music players and more!
Software Control Panel – Switcher control on Mac or PC!
Included free with every ATEM live production switcher is the beautifully designed ATEM software control panel for both Mac and Windows. With a full visual switcher control panel and parameter palettes for quick switcher adjustments, you can load graphics into the media pool, adjust the audio mixer, control and balance cameras, update switcher settings and more! For the ultimate in portability, you can use the ATEM software on a laptop, so you can work easily in small spaces with full control of all the switcher’s features!
