Professional Audio Mixer

Live mix multi channel audio from your cameras in real time! 

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 analog XLR and HiFi audio inputs.

The analog audio inputs are great for microphones, audio mixers, music players and more!

 

Independent Aux Output

Feed big screens on stage!

ATEM switchers have independent auxiliary outputs that are 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 buttons and screen make it easy to select sources such that 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 fantastic for tech monitoring with SmartScope Duo 4K.

 

Software Control Panel

Switcher control on Mac or PC!

Included free with every ATEM Production Studio 4K 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!

 

Professional Broadcast Panels

Add a hardware panel for fast professional switching!

The 2 M/E panel supports two independent 1 M/E switchers, so you can double your switcher power by simply connecting two switchers to build a massive 2 M/E switcher!

When you want fast professional control of your switcher during extremely complex live production, you can add an optional dedicated hardware broadcast panel to your switcher. Choose the super compact ATEM 1M/E Broadcast Panel, or get the ultimate control with the ATEM 2 M/E broadcast Panel! Both panels feature the highest quality buttons, knobs and controls for the most demanding 24/7 live production environment, giving you precise hands on control of all switcher functions.

 

Extreme Reliability

Professional hardware based switcher for incredible reliability.

Broadcast and live production situations demand mission critical reliability! That's why ATEM Switchers use an internal aviation quality operating system! Cheap computer based switchers interrupt the video if the computer crashes, while ATEM doesn't have this problem because the computer is only the control panel! With ATEM you still have video output so your live event is protected from any possible computer failure. Simply use other control panels or restart your computer without interruption to the program!

Only 12G-SDI gives you high frame rate Ultra HD via a single BNC connection that also plugs into all your regular HD equipment!

ATEM 2 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K

The world’s first high frame rate Ultra HD switcher with 12G‑SDI!

When you need absolute performance in live production, the ATEM 2 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K is like no other ATEM switcher! Completely redesigned to operate up to 60 fps in Ultra HD, this new ATEM can easily handle these massive speeds! All connections are native 12G-SDI so you can connect up to 2160p60 video with a single standard BNC cable. This high performance ATEM model also instantly switches to all other HD formats so you can install it today and use it for HD, while being ready for tomorrow. That totally eliminates the cost of moving to Ultra HD in the future because ATEM does it now! This powerful ATEM also includes a larger media pool, 2 native Ultra HD multi viewers, 6 keyers, full DVE, SuperSource and re-sync on each input that all operate in Ultra HD up to 2160p60!

 

Remote Camera Control

Full camera control from your switcher!

Get full control of your cameras right from the ATEM software control! The new 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!

Professional Audio Mixer

Live mix multi channel audio from your cameras in real time! 

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 analog 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 analog audio inputs are great for microphones, audio mixers, music players and more!

 

Independent Aux Output

Feed big screens on stage!

ATEM switchers have independent auxiliary outputs that are 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 buttons and screen make it easy to select sources such that 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 fantastic for tech monitoring with SmartScope Duo 4K.

 

Software Control Panel

Switcher control on Mac or PC!

Included free with every ATEM Production Studio 4K 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!

 

Professional Broadcast Panels

Add a hardware panel for fast professional switching!

The 2 M/E panel supports two independent 1 M/E switchers, so you can double your switcher power by simply connecting two switchers to build a massive 2 M/E switcher!

When you want fast professional control of your switcher during extremely complex live production, you can add an optional dedicated hardware broadcast panel to your switcher. Choose the super compact ATEM 1M/E Broadcast Panel, or get the ultimate control with the ATEM 2 M/E broadcast Panel! Both panels feature the highest quality buttons, knobs and controls for the most demanding 24/7 live production environment, giving you precise hands on control of all switcher functions.

 

Extreme Reliability

Professional hardware based switcher for incredible reliability.

Broadcast and live production situations demand mission critical reliability! That's why ATEM Switchers use an internal aviation quality operating system! Cheap computer based switchers interrupt the video if the computer crashes, while ATEM doesn't have this problem because the computer is only the control panel! With ATEM you still have video output so your live event is protected from any possible computer failure. Simply use other control panels or restart your computer without interruption to the program!
