The Blackmagic Design ATEM Television Studio Production Switcher is a versatile 1 RU switcher that's a lot more powerful than you might expect at this price. For instance, live-switch a multi-camera shoot of a concert with a mix of high-definition HD-SDI- and HDMI-output camcorders – the six-input ATEM Television Studio can handle it, even applying a frame sync to each input. That means expensive genlocked cameras are simply not necessary.

The three keyers included in the ATEM Control Panel software allow you to add professional graphics such as logos and keys (the switcher features two media player frame stores). Using a green screen, you can even chroma-key a performer against a graphical background – live. Meanwhile, you can be encoding the live concert to H.264 in real time, producing a high-quality, professionally compressed HD file that will be ready for easy upload to the web the minute the show is over.

Another cost-saving feature is the multi-view output, which allows you to display up to 10 video sources on any HDMI- or HD-SDI-enabled screen. This saves not only money but also space: there's simply no need to transport and maintain a full battery of video monitors.

For all its ease of use, ATEM Television Studio also accommodates live-production operations with growth in mind. Perhaps you'll move up from HDMI to HD-SDI camcorders in the near future – the switcher is ready. Or maybe you'll want a professional hardware control panel – Blackmagic's ATEM 1 M/E and 2 M/E panels (not included) both connect to the switcher via Ethernet. In any case, the switcher's operation will be familiar to anyone with an understanding of broadcast switching. This is a professional 10-bit HD switcher that just happens to accommodate lower-budget productions with unexpected finesse.

Live Control Software

Advanced control software for unlimited creativity

For the ultimate in creativity and control, ATEM Television Studio includes a beautifully designed software control panel included free. Use the switcher and parameter palette controls to switch cameras live and change transitions and key settings. You can load graphics into the switcher directly for display or keying, adjust the built in audio mixer, control cameras and change switcher settings, all from your Mac or PC laptop. Only ATEM switchers let you start at a lower cost because you are not forced to buy a control panel.


Massive creative choice with broadcast quality transitions

Instantly use broadcast transitions like mixes, wipes, dips and more when switching between sources! You get massive creative choice with a wide range of options, including borders, position, and direction with ATEM Television Studio’s built in transitions. When you’re in the middle of a busy live production, use the Preview Transition button to see exactly how the transition will look before the effect goes live on air.


Use green screens and mix graphics with video live

ATEM Television Studio includes an upstream keyer with full chroma keying for green screen shots! Imagine loading a rendered background and using the chroma keyer for incredible virtual set effects! The upstream keyer can work with chroma, patterns, shapes, and linear keys. ATEM Television Studio also includes 2 downstream keyers so you can easily add graphics and bugs to your video for professional results.


Live production with up to 6 cameras

ATEM Television Studio is a professional broadcast SDI switcher that also includes loads of HDMI connections, giving you a total of 6 inputs. That means you can start affordably with consumer HDMI cameras, or work with professional broadcast cameras. The built in AES/EBU audio input jack lets you connect professional audio devices. Unlike other switchers, all video inputs feature automatic frame re-synchronizers, so you don’t need expensive genlock cameras. You can plug in any device and it always works.


Broadcast standard SDI and consumer HDMI outputs

ATEM Television Studio includes both professional SDI outputs and HDMI outputs so you can monitor cameras using multi view and output your program on virtually any display, including consumer HD television sets! The SDI program output lets you connect your ATEM Television Studio to professional decks and recorders, like the HyperDeck Studio, so you can record your program at the highest possible quality.

Portable Design

ATEM Television Studio features an elegant and strong all metal design with the highest quality video and audio connections that work with virtually all SD, 720p HD and 1080i HD formats. You get four HDMI/SDI inputs along with program and multi-view outputs, USB, ethernet, and AES/EBU audio. The 1RU design is less than an inch deep and runs silent, so you can use it anywhere.

Multi View

Monitor all your cameras on a single television

When you’re working with multiple cameras, it’s important to be able to see all of the video sources at the same time. ATEM Television Studio’s built in multi view output lets you see up to 10 channels of video on a single HDMI television or SDI monitor. You can see cameras, graphics, preview and final program output all on the same display at the same time. Customize labels, set safe area markers, and more. Simply connect any standard HDTV and you get the perfect multi camera monitoring solution for any location.

Media & Graphics

Add professional titles and graphics in seconds

Now you can save thousands of dollars by eliminating external character generators. It’s simple to load up to 20 graphics for use with the two built in media player frame stores for exciting custom titles and logos! Use the included Photoshop plug-in to download graphics from Photoshop directly into the ATEM media pool. Now you can get titles and graphics on air in seconds.

Audio Mixer

Professional on-screen audio mixing

Mix cameras and audio inputs with ATEM’s built in easy to use audio mixer. When you open the audio mixer control tab on your Mac or PC you get a complete on-screen multi track mixing interface with level meters! Easily direct camera and external audio with precision level and balance adjustments, quickly enable and disable channels, or set audio to automatically follow the video source.

Camera Control

Remote control for Blackmagic Studio Cameras

When working with the new Blackmagic Studio Camera, you get full control of your remote cameras right from the ATEM software! You can control camera settings and have access to a full color corrector that includes a traditional CCU layout and a DaVinci Resolve style primary color corrector. Now you can use all of your color correction skills from Resolve for balancing cameras and adding incredible creativity to your live production.
