The Blackmagic Design ATEM 1 M/E Broadcast Panel provides constant switching control in a sturdy and compact hardware panel; for greater control of an ATEM switcher than a software control panel provides.

This single M/E (mix effect) panel combines professional-level buttons, knobs, and controls that fit seamlessly into any industry-leading control room. Dedicated buttons are provided for direct and shifted cross points, as well as an on-air indicator, fader and three axis joystick.

A tri-colour LED system illuminates the buttons which can be labelled up to a length of four characters. The panel can be used to control inputs, outputs and effects (using the switcher). The panel connects and controls the Blackmagic Design ATEM switcher via Ethernet and also features an additional secondary ethernet port. As well as utilising a built-in redundant 120 VAC power supplies to minimize down time, the panel fits within a standard rack unit width.
