The Blackmagic Design ATEM Production Studio 4K is a feature-rich live production switcher perfect for multi-camera productions. It matches a wide range of sources (cameras, disk recorders, computers) with a wide range of video quality (SD, HD, and Ultra HD), and boosts your content with powerful features such as chroma key, creative transitions, media pool, downstream keyers, audio mixer, multi view, and more!

Advanced Live Production. Along with eight (8) video inputs, the ATEM Production Studio 4K includes a litany of real-time transitions with Ultra HD resolutions: mixes, dips, wipes, and more! ATEM production switchers also include media pool memory that lets you download still frames and graphics for keying using the two built in media players. All popular image formats are supported, or you can direct download from Photoshop CC with the included plug-in. The ATEM Production Studio 4K supports 20 Ultra HD RGBA still frame graphics. Need high-quality keying and multi-layer effects? The Production Studio 4K has powerful upstream keyers with luminance, linear, pattern, and chroma keying. There are also 2 independent downstream keyers for logos, titles, and other ‘on air’ graphics.

Incredible Quality. This ATEM operates in Ultra HD, four times the resolution of 1080 HD video, with a massive 3840 x 2160 frame size! All media players, downstream & upstream keyers, transitions, DVE, and color generators can operate in Ultra HD natively on this unit.

Innovative Design. The ATEM Production Studio 4K is built compact and sturdy with a machined aluminum front panel. The panel features twenty-one (21) illuminated buttons to let you switch auxiliary outputs and a built-in video screen.

Inputs. 6G-SDI and HDMI 4K inputs on the unit are switchable from SD, HD, or Ultra HD. Inputs support embedded audio and frame resynchronizing. The ATEM Production Studio 4K has 4 HDMI and 4 SDI inputs for a total of 8 inputs. Audio input also available through two (2) balanced XLRs.

Outputs. 6G-SDI and HDMI main program output plus a down converted program SDI output. For easy monitoring on any HD-SDI or HDMI display, you get support for program, preview and 8 video source views using the built in multi view. It also includes an auxiliary output function to send feeds without on-air graphics (to recorders for program mastering, to big screens on stage, etc.).

Power Macros. To automate complex sequences of precisely timed actions on your ATEM switcher, you can now create powerful shortcuts called macros. Record a sequence of transitions between video sources, including key effects, audio mixer adjustments, camera control settings and more using the ATEM software or hardware control panel. Macros are saved as XML files that can even be edited with a standard text editor so you can combine them together to build sophisticated sequences that would be impossible to execute manually during a live production! That means you can create unique looks for your programs that can be recalled instantly, copied between switchers and used over and over again!

Audio Mixing. You can live mix multi-channel audio from your video and audio sources on the ATEM Production Studio 4K. The built-in audio mixer can be used for direct input mixing or used for audio follow video mixing where the audio automatically crossfades when switching from one input to another.

Warranty. Blackmagic Design offers a twelve (12) month limited warranty on the ATEM Production Studio 4K.
