Blackmagic Design ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K Live Production Switcher


    Blackmagic Design SWATEMTVSTU/PRO4K overview


    The Blackmagic Design ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K is a UHD 4K-compatible, 8-input live production switcher with an integrated control panel, suitable for broadcast, sports, web, and A/V productions. This versatile switcher's eight independent 12G-SDI inputs accept all popular HD and UHD signals up to 2160p60. A re-syncing feature on each input enables you to seamlessly use an amalgam of pro and consumer cameras, game consoles, and computer feeds.

    Switch, add effects, color grade, and key in real time using the control surface's buttons, knobs, and slider. CCU functions are available for controlling Blackmagic Studio and URSA Mini/Broadcast/Micro Studio cameras from the switcher. A software-based control panel is included and may be used independently, or on multiple laptops for delegating multicamera control. The ATEM Advanced Chroma Keyer, with one upstream and two downstream keys, offers live graphics and virtual set creation with improved image control and spill correction. Create PiP effects, resize and scale live video, and choose from 17 powered transitions with the ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K'S DVE processor.

    Multiview output is available for all eight channel, via HDMI or SDI, complete with tally, labeling, audio metering, and safe-area marking. A talkback function is available for director/operator communication with compatible cameras. The integrated Fairlight audio mixer features six-band parametric EQ, compression, limiting, and stereo simulation on analog and mic inputs. Mix solely from the panel, or use the multitrack interface on your Mac or Windows PC. Use the auxiliary output port to send your switched program or clean feed to a large-scale screen or other display.
