This model includes the features of ATEM SDI plus it adds built in streaming and recording to 5 video streams in real time! That's a clean feed of all inputs for multi‑cam editing. A DaVinci Resolve project is saved so you can open your live production to edit, remix audio and add color correction.

ATEM SDI Pro Iso gives you the portable design of ATEM Mini, but its SDI connections means you can connect advanced broadcast quality cameras and recorders. This opens up a whole new world of ultra portable live production. The incredibly portable design means you can fit a whole broadcast quality live production system in a small bag or even a backpack!You can use multiple cameras on location and live stream direct to YouTube, or create a broadcast quality link back to a studio with ATEM Streaming Bridge. Unlike single camera remote shoots, ATEM SDI Pro Iso lets you connect multiple cameras so you can create interesting remote interviews with multiple camera angles.

ATEM SDI Pro Iso has buttons for recording and streaming control, as well as output selection buttons that let you change the video output between program, direct camera feeds and the multi-view. On the rear panel there are SDI connections for cameras, extra microphone inputs, USB for webcam plus multiple SDI "aux" outputs for program video.

The switcher is easy to use; simply press any of the input buttons labeled by number on the front panel to cut between video sources. You can choose between cut or effects transitions by selecting the cut or auto buttons. Unlike cut, the auto button tells ATEM SDI Pro Iso to use a video effect when switching inputs. You can select from exciting transitions such as dissolve, or more dramatic effects such as dip to color, DVE squeeze and DVE push. Add a DVE effect for picture in picture effects with customized picture positions and background. There are even "media players" which are a still store for titles and graphics that you can load via external software control.

ATEM SDI Pro Iso lets you connect multiple cameras for different views of the performance. Video cameras with SDI outputs such as Blackmagic Studio Camera or Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 are much better quality as they have better low light performance and they use professional lenses. All videosources will re-sync to the switcher, even if they operate at different video standards. Everything just works so setup on location is easy and you don't have to worry about technical problems.

To ensure maximum compatibility, all ATEM SDI Pro ISO models feature USB that operates as a simple webcam source. That means you can plug into a computer and get working with any video software! The software is tricked into thinking the ATEM SDI is a common webcam, but it's really a live production switcher. That guarantees full compatibility with any video software and in full resolution 1080HD quality. Choose any software you like, such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams or Skype for a new way to do presentations with a professional multi camera broadcast quality style! The ATEM SDI webcam output also works with streaming software such as Open Broadcaster, XSplit Broadcaster and more!

ATEM SDI Pro models have a built in hardware streaming engine for live streaming via their ethernet connections. That means you can live stream to YouTube, Facebook and Twitch in better quality, without dropped frames and with simpler settings. Just select the streaming service and enter the streaming key! There arepalettes in ATEM Software Control for streaming setup, plus streaming status is also displayed in the multi-view. Streaming status is easy to understand as the data rate indicator shows internet speed required for the video format you're using. If you're technically minded, you can update the streaming profiles in an XML settings file to load new services.

If you’re doing live production on location then the ATEM SDI Pro models support connecting an Apple or Android phone to the USB port to use mobile data! It's also a great backup for the main Ethernet connection. Phone tethering works with the latest high speed 5G phones plus the more common 4G phones! The ATEM switcher will automatically detect when a phone is connected and switch its internet connection to use it, eliminating the need for changing settings. When connected, the phone will power from the USB port so it remains charged from the switcher.

The ATEM SDI Pro models also support direct recording of your streaming data to USB flash disks! That means you get very long recordings in the same H.264 video files with AAC audio that you streamed, so you can direct upload to any online video site, such as YouTube or Vimeo. Recording to multiple disks is also supported via a USB hub so when a disk fills, recording can continue to a second disk so you get non-stop recording. Record settings and disk selection are set up in ATEM Software Control and you can also display the recording status in the multi-view.

The ATEM SDI Pro ISO models allow you to edit your live event as they can record multiple video streams, including clean feeds of all inputs and program, all at the same time! Media pool images used are also saved with the video files. The video files include metadata tags such as synced timecode and camera numbers. Imagine re-editing your show with new color grades, effects and graphics! Even the audio sources are all recorded so you can professionally remix your audio!

The ISO models also save a DaVinci Resolve project file, so with a single click you can open your live production as a video edit. All cuts, dissolves and media pool graphics will be loaded. This means you can fine tune edit points or even completely replace shots! The DaVinci Resolve Sync Bin lets you edit shots via a multi-view interface, so it's easy to use and fast! All ISO files will be automatically aligned by timecode, so you can scroll along and see all camera angles perfectly synced.

One of the benefits of ATEM SDI Pro ISO is the professional production values that are possible using the range of built in video effects! The cut button ensures an instant cut when switching between sources. The auto button is a professional term that's used on large broadcast switchers to enable video effect transitions. There are duration buttons for video effects allowing 0.5, 1, 1.5 and 2 second settings. You can also select the type of effect you want including mix, which does a smooth transition between sources, and dip which fades via a color during the transition. Or use fun DVE effects that move the image off screen when transitioning between sources!

With two independent 3.5mm stereo audio inputs, you can connect desktop and lapel microphones. You can even connect a music player to generate introduction music after the live stream commences but before the program starts. With 2 extra stereo audio inputs, you can ensure a host and guest both have lapel microphones when doing interviews. All audio inputs to ATEM SDI Pro ISO include buttons on the panel for adjusting audio level and enabling inputs into the audio mixer. Plus all models feature a Fairlight audio mixer with all SDI inputs and both microphone inputs connected to the audio mixer allowing live mixing from all your audio sources.

While ATEM SDI Pro ISO is easy to use, it also has very powerful high end broadcast features! ATEM SDI is even perfect for training new live production crews as it has the same features as the massive switchers used in large broadcast studios. You get an ATEM Advanced Chroma Key, Fairlight audio mixer, DVE, still store for graphics and much more! Simply run the free ATEMSoftware Control app on Mac or Windows while connected via USB or Ethernet to access the extended features of the ATEM SDI Pro ISO. With a little experimentation you can learn how to produce broadcast quality live production.

One of the most exciting features on ATEM SDI Pro ISO is the built in DVE that allows picture in picture effects and DVE transitions! The DVE lets you create professional picture in picture effects with customizable 3D borders, shadows and lighting. The image quality is the same as high end ATEM switcher models and the DVE supports position, resize and scale, all inreal time. The DVE can also be used to create amazing transitions with 16 different DVE squeeze and DVE push effects for adding excitement to your programming. The DVE features a "fly key" so you can use it with custom graphics to create graphic wipe transitions!

ATEM SDI Pro Iso includes a wide range of broadcast quality HD native transitions such as mix, dip, wipe and more. All transitions can be customized by adjusting parameters such as duration, border color, border width, position and direction. You can also use the DVE in transitions, allowinga graphic to be moved over the wipe edge which is called a graphic wipe, and is commonly used in sports programming. To eliminate errors, ATEM SDI has a preview transition feature so you can check your transitions before putting them to air.

For news or on-set presentation work, ATEM SDI is perfect as it features the powerful ATEM Advanced Chroma Key for green screen keying effects. The chroma keyer is incredibly powerful and features a color picker to sample background colors for automatic generation of the key parameters. You get precise controls for edge and flare, and there is even a foreground color corrector so you can match the foreground and background layers for seamless compositions. You can even use it for title overlays by creating graphics with a green or blue background.

Although ATEM SDI Pro works in "cut bus" mode when first purchased, it can also be changed to "program/preview" style operation, which is the way broadcasters normally use live production switchers. Cut bus switching is easy and selecting any input will instantly switch to that source. However if you want to operate ATEM SDI Pro like a true professional then you can change the switcher to program/preview using ATEM Software Control settings. Mix effects operation allows a source to be selected but it won't be put on air until you press the cut or auto buttons. That 2 step program/preview process means fewer mistakes.

With a built in Fairlight audio mixer, ATEM SDI Pro makes it possible to do complex live sound mixing. The internal mixer features enough channels for each SDI input so you can mix audio from all sources! That’s audio from all SDI sources, plus the 2 stereo mic inputs. Each input channel features the highest quality 6 band parametric EQ and compressor, limiter,expander and noise gate as well as full panning. You can even set up the software to auto mix between inputs as you switch "AFV" or to live mix multiple sources together all at once. All this audio power can be controlled via ATEM Software Control, or you can add a Mackie compatible panel.
