ATEM Studio Converter is the ideal partner for the ATEM Camera Converter. Connect up to four Camera Converters via optical fiber up to 28 miles away with bi-directional video plus tally and talkback! Connect your ATEM switcher program output to the ATEM Studio Converter and this is distributed to the four Camera Converters. Multiple Studio converters can be cascaded together when more than 4 cameras are needed.

ATEM Studio and Camera Converters

Get your camera close to the action using low cost optical fiber

Now you can position your cameras a long distance away from your switcher and get closer to the action with ATEM Camera and Studio Converters. ATEM Camera Converter is a super tough optical fiber converter with talkback, tally, microphone inputs and a built in long life battery. Using low cost optical fiber you can connect to your cameras up to 28 miles away and even at those great distances you still get full bi-directional video, audio, talkback and tally signals

Live Camera Connections

The perfect solution for live events

ATEM Converters are the perfect solution for live music and sporting events where you need to place cameras in remote locations such as on race tracks or near to a stage, where there is a huge distance between the live action and your switcher. Connect up to 4 ATEM Camera Converters to each ATEM Studio Converter and get multiple camera talkback, so all camera operators can communicate with the switcher operator using talkback that is embedded into channels 15 and 16 of the optical fiber SDI connection.

The ATEM Converters

Designed for live production

There are two ATEM converters for use at opposite ends of a live camera connection! ATEM Camera Converter converts your camera’s SDI or HDMI output to optical fiber, with embedded external audio and talkback from the camera position. The machined aluminum design is lightweight, strong and includes an internal long life battery for increased portability. ATEM Studio Converter’s rack mount design has 4 bi-directional optical fiber connections so you can connect multiple camera converters and convert the optical fiber input to SDI and de-embed audio using XLR connections.

Optical Fiber Link

Work over lengths of up to 28 miles

ATEM converters connect using industry standard single mode optical fiber cable with standard LC connectors. Optical fiber lets you connect way beyond the distance of traditional copper cables. It’s widely available, easy to use and affordable because it's the same optical fiber cable used in computer networking. ATEM Camera Converter and ATEM Studio Converter use the standard SMPTE specification for optical fiber connections using standard single mode optical fiber running at 1310nm, which allows you to connect at distances up to 28 miles.

Talkback

During busy live production it's vital to be able to talk to your camera operators. ATEM Camera and Studio Converters take advantage of the 16 channel SDI audio standard and embed the talkback into rarely used channels 15 and 16. ATEM Camera Converter uses standard PC or iPhone type headsets while the ATEM Studio Converter uses more robust aviation headsets that are available in hundreds of different styles! ATEM Studio Converter also features a built in microphone input and speaker so you don't need to use a headset.

Tally

It's important for camera operators to know when their camera is on air, so they don't inadvertently change their shot when millions of people could be viewing. ATEM Camera and Studio Converters support SDI tally output from the program feed of switchers, such as Blackmagic Design's ATEM range of live production switchers. When a camera is on air a red LED illuminates on the ATEM Camera Converter and a red tally border is displayed on the converter's SDI and HDMI monitoring outputs

Premium Quality Design

Machined from a solid block of aluminum

ATEM Camera Converter is machined from a solid block of aluminum to withstand daily use in live production environments. The integrated belt clip lets you operate cameras easily while connected to headsets. ATEM Studio Converter features a stylish machined aluminum front panel for a super tough design that also includes microphone and headset connections, backlit press to talk buttons, plus a built in speaker and volume control for talkback. All video and audio connections are on the rear panel and the built in power supply supports 110V to 240V.

Highest Quality Connections

Use pro or consumer cameras

ATEM Camera Converter features high quality SDI and HDMI inputs for connecting professional SDI and consumer HDMI cameras. It includes 1/4″ stereo jack mic/line inputs so external commentary and effects audio can be sent from the camera position. ATEM Studio Converter has 4 bi-directional fiber converters that convert each camera feed from optical fiber to SDI and output balanced analog audio on XLR connectors. Also included is loop program SDI in, plus AES/EBU microphone and headphone loops that let you link multiple ATEM Studio Converters.

Smart Software

Keep up to date

Blackmagic Design’s Converter Utility Software lets you quickly set up converter functions, including camera numbers and audio levels. The utility software also lets you update your ATEM Converters with the latest firmware via a USB connection on each converter. This means you can download firmware updates to add new features or support for new video formats. Converter Utility Software is available for both Mac OS X and Windows.
