The New ATEM Television Studio - The world’s first live production switchers for broadcast, professional and AV users
ATEM Television Studios are the first live production switchers designed for both broadcasters and AV professionals. There are 2 powerful HD models with 4 SDI and 4 HDMI inputs and a new Ultra HD model with 8 12G-SDI inputs. Packed with high end broadcast features, ATEM Television Studio models feature re-sync on all inputs so you always get clean switching whether you’re using professional or consumer cameras. Plus, you get multiview output so you can see all of your sources, preview and program on a single screen, aux out, built in talkback, 2 still stores, an audio mixer, camera control unit and more. ATEM Television Studio Pro models have the same features plus an integrated professional broadcast hardware control panel and additional CCU controls. Both models are perfect for live production, episodic television, web shows, AV or even live coverage of video gaming competitions. Simply plug in your cameras, game consoles or computers and start switching live.

Introducing Atem Television Studio Pro 4k - New model includes 8 standards converted 12GSDI inputs, new Fairlight audio mixer, ATEM Advanced Chroma Key, motion media clips and more
The new ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K model includes all the benefits of the HD models and now adds Ultra HD capability with more SDI inputs. With 8 independent 12G-SDI inputs, ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K can handle all popular HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60. Each input features re-sync as well as a full low latency standards converter so input is automatically adapted to the switcher’s format. That means you can even have 8 inputs, all running different video formats. The upgraded Fairlight audio mixer features dynamics, 6 band parametric EQ, dual mono channel split and stereo simulator with audio delay on the analog inputs. ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K also features the ATEM Advanced Chroma Keyer, Ultra HD multiview and motion clips in the media pool.

12G-SDI For Ultra HD To 2160p60
The ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K features 8 standards converted 12G-SDI inputs so you can connect to both HD and Ultra HD sources. Each input also features a corresponding 12G-SDI output that can be used for camera return feeds with embedded control data, and mix minus is available on each 12G‑SDI output.

Full Input Standards Conversion
Each 12G-SDI input features an independent Teranex low latency standards converter allowing inputs to be any combination of HD or Ultra HD television formats. The switcher will convert inputs to the switcher’s standard, and combined with input re-sync, this means you can simply plug in and it just works.

ATEM Advanced Chroma Key
The all new ATEM Advanced Chroma Key is the next generation keyer that enables incredibly clean green screen keying in real time for seamless multi layer compositing. You get lots of key controls including on screen image sample, edge, flare, foreground color correction, separate spill controls and more.

Fairlight Audio Mixer
The ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K model now has a new incredibly powerful Fairlight audio mixer that includes pro audio features such as 6 band parametric EQ, compressor, limiter, expander/noise gate, pan, audio channel split to dual mono, stereo simulator on analog and mic inputs and an audio delay on analog inputs.

Live Production Switching - Turn any live event into a professional HD or Ultra HD television program
ATEM Television Studio switchers are the fastest and most affordable way to create incredible programs immediately from live events. They are 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.

SDI And HDMI Inputs - Connect up to 8 cameras, game consoles or computers
All models feature 8 independent video inputs, with the 4K model featuring 8 12G-SDI inputs. This lets you connect up to 8 cameras, game consoles, computers or other sources. That means you can start with affordable HDMI consumer cameras, or work with professional SDI HD or Ultra HD broadcast cameras. You also get reference input, analog audio in, RS-422 PTZ control, and Ethernet for connecting hardware or software control panels. All video inputs feature automatic frame re-synchronizers, so you don’t need expensive genlock cameras. The 4K model includes standards conversion on each input so you can plug in an HD or Ultra HD input source and it just works.

Professional SDI Outputs - Broadcast quality connections that won’t hold you back technically
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 inputs, program and preview on any display, including big screen televisions. Plus the 4K model even supports switching the multiview output to Ultra HD. 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 - See all your video sources on a single monitor
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 TV to get perfect multi camera monitoring in any location.

Powerful Transitions - Massive creative choice with broadcast quality transitions
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 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.

Built In 2 DVE - Amazing DVE transitions and picture in picture effects
A powerful digital video effects “DVE” processor lets you position, resize and scale live video, all in real time. That means you can create professional picture in picture effects with customizable borders and drop shadows with lighting. Imagine using a picture in picture effect to superimpose a commentator when covering events such as sports, training videos, interviews and even gaming competitions. You also get 17 DVE powered transitions that you can use to squeeze and swoosh between sources, or to create graphic wipe transitions with your own graphics.

Includes Talkback - Realtime two way communication with your cameras
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 - Add professional titles and graphics in seconds
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 - Use green screens and mix graphics with live video
The ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K model includes the new ATEM Advanced Chroma Keyer for better control, image sampling, foreground color and spill correction for more seamless chroma keying. You also get 2 downstream keyers for adding graphics, logos and bugs to your video. You can even install a HyperDeck Studio Mini 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 Audio Mixer - Mix audio from all sources in real time
Use the professional audio mixer to mix audio from all inputs and audio from the analog XLR inputs and talkback mic input. You can fully mix audio 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 mix with precision and balance inputs, quickly enable and disable channels, or set audio to automatically follow the video source. Then if you need more powerful audio, the 4K model includes features such as 6 band parametric EQ, compressor, limiter, expander/noise gate, pan, audio channel split to dual mono, stereo simulator on analog and mic inputs, and an audio delay on analog inputs.

Remote Camera Control - Full camera control from your switcher
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 - Feed big screens and video projectors on stage
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.
