Blackmagic Design’s ATEM production switcher series create stunning multi camera live production. ATEM switches between SD, HD, or Ultra HD video standards so your live production can use cameras, disk records, slide shows from computers, and more video sources. Features include chroma key, creative transitions, media pool, downstream keyers, audio mixer, multi view, and more. With a machined aluminum front panel and multi voltage power supplies, ATEM live production switchers can power live production needs at live concerts, sporting events, theater productions, and conferences around the world.

The ATEM 2 M/E has 20 6G-SDI inputs that allow embedded audio mixing and can be used on sources without genlock, such as laptops. Two balanced XLR audio inputs can connect to professional mixers, and a HiFi audio input can connect to an iPod. Sixteen video outputs can be used with any TV or monitor to connect with LED screens, projectors, disk recorders, and broadcast decks. Monitor up to 16 cameras simultaneously with the two independent multi view outputs. An independent aux output can feed big screens on stage, and pairs excellently with SmartScope Duo 4K for tech monitoring.

Let your creative expression take the lead with the ATEM 2 M/E. Creative transitions can be used in all resolutions, and the transition type, pattern, and length are customizable. The ATEM 2 M/E also has animated stingers and DVE transitions. Powerful digital video effects processor gives you the ability to position, resize, rotate, and scale live video in real time. Built in chroma, luminance, linear and pattern keyers, and two independent downstream keyers all come standard.

Add multi box compositions quickly and easily with SuperSource’s separate 5 layer switcher. SuperSource can be assigned to any ATEM video input, so you can produce multi camera interviews or picture in picture while the M/Es, keyers, and DVE are available for other uses. Compositions from SuperSource can be saved and automatically recalled.

Recall saved sequences with dual media players and HyperDeck SSD recorders. Dual media players support popular image formats for downloading still frames and graphics for keying. Set up and automatically start complex sequences with power macros. These macros are saved as XML files for instant recall and can even be copied to use on another switcher. For other pre-recorded sequences, connect up to four HyperDeck SSD recorders to the ATEM switcher.

Software control panel can be used on Mac or Windows computers. This included software panel offers a full visual switcher control panel and parameter palettes. For greater control access, add an ATEM advanced panel.
