Blackmagic ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K Production Switcher


The Blackmagic ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K is a Live Production Switcher with 8-inputs and an integrated control panel which fits into a standard equipment rack. It has 8x independent 12G-SDI inputs on the rear chassis, supporting HD and UHD signals up to 2160p60 resolutions from both professional and consumer cameras. A re-syncing feature on each input enables you to seamlessly use an amalgam of pro and consumer cameras, game consoles, and computer feeds.


The bright LCD screen built into the ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K lets you monitor program and audio levels, as well as view menus for adjusting switcher settings. The spin knob control, menu and set buttons work together with the LCD to give you fast access to all switcher settings.

The control surface is replete with control buttons, knobs, and a fader bar. All this enables selecting camera inputs and controlling transitions, keyers, settings, and the DVE. Inputs and outputs are located on the rear of the unit. PGM output is available via SDI while multiview can be sent via SDI or HDMI. An AUX output lets you send video to an external display, which is great for live events with a projection setup.

Switch, add effects, colour grade, and key in real time using the control surface’s buttons, knobs, and slider. CCU functions are available for controlling Blackmagic Studio and URSA Mini/Broadcast/Micro Studio cameras from the switcher. A software-based control panel is included and may be used independently, or on multiple laptops for delegating multi-camera control. The ATEM Advanced Chroma Keyer, with one upstream and two downstream keys, offers live graphics and virtual set creation with improved image control and spill correction. Create PiP effects, resize and scale live video, and choose from 17 powered transitions with the ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K’S DVE processor.

Multiview output is available for all eight channel, via HDMI or SDI, complete with tally, labelling, audio metering, and safe-area marking. A talkback function is available for director/operator communication with compatible cameras. The integrated Fairlight audio mixer features six-band parametric EQ, compression, limiting, and stereo simulation on analog and mic inputs. Mix solely from the panel or use the multitrack interface on your Mac or Windows PC. Use the auxiliary output port to send your switched program or clean feed to a large-scale screen or other display.
