The new ATEM Television Studio is a professional live production switcher built into a broadcast control panel so it can be used for high end work while being extremely portable. This means you can use it in small venues that don’t have the access for equipment racks or broadcast vans. You get a powerful switcher with 8 standards converted SDI inputs, aux outputs, 4 chroma keyers, 2 downstream keyers, SuperSource, 2 media players and lots of transitions! Plus it includes a whole television studio of features such as hardware streaming, recording, audio mixer, talkback, multiview and optional internal network shared storage. There’s even an ISO model that records all 8 inputs for editing!

Self Contained Broadcast Quality Switcher
The ATEM Television Studio combines a switcher and control panel into the same unit, so it’s extremely portable. You get everything you need! The front panel includes buttons for selecting sources, triggering transitions and setting up video effects. Plus the buttons are the same high-end type used on expensive broadcast switchers! You also get a built in t-bar for manual transition control! The front panel even has an innovative audio mixer control area with live metering on a dedicated LCD. There are also buttons for recording and streaming control, plus live aux switching that lets you change aux outputs between all 8 cameras, program, preview or the multiview.
Connect up to 8 Broadcast Cameras
With 8 SDI video inputs, ATEM Television Studio 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 use professional lenses. All video sources 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. Imagine taking advantage of the creative freedom of multi camera live production for interviews, advertorials, theater productions, music performances, sports and more!
Includes Production, Post Production and Distribution!
You get an incredibly powerful 8 input switcher with both program and aux outputs so you have everything you need for mobile production. That means you can connect up to 8 cameras! Plus you get professional camera control, talkback and audio mixing all designed into a familiar broadcast panel.
The ISO model records all inputs into separate files so you can edit using any NLE that supports multi-cam! That’s possible because all files have perfect timecode sync! Plus with built in network storage, you can edit while recording! Multiple users can even share media and collaborate!
With a built in hardware streaming engine, you can live stream your event to a global audience! Recording to H.264 files with AAC audio means you get the correct format to upload to YouTube. Plus you share live broadcasts with your audience by using the aux outputs and large screens and projectors!
Easy to Use and Fast to Learn!
There’s never been a switcher that’s easier to use, as you simply press any of the program row buttons on the front panel to cut between video sources. Or you can pre select a source on the preview row and then choose between cut or effect transitions by selecting the cut or auto buttons. You can select from exciting transitions such as dissolve, or more dramatic effects such as dip to color, DVE squeeze and DVE push. You can even add a DVE for picture in picture effects with customized graphics. There are also media players which let you store graphics with alpha channels for titles and graphics that you can load as live video inputs. Then you can live stream the results!
True Broadcast Style Mix Effects Switching
ATEM Television Studio uses a professional program/preview style of operation, which is exactly the way large broadcasters use live production switchers! However ATEM Television Studio can be switched to A/B style switching, which is easier when it’s used by volunteers or community groups. However, if you want to operate the switcher like a broadcast professional then the program/preview is perfect! This means a source won’t be put on air until you press the cut or auto button. This 2 step process means you see what you are selecting before putting it to air, so you get fewer mistakes. Plus program/preview operation is a fantastic way to train students for a career in broadcast television!
Easy to Add Exciting Video Effects!
One of the benefits of ATEM Television Studio is the range of professional built in video effects! The cut button ensures an instant cut when switching between sources. The t-bar fader can be used to transition video effects, or you can do the transition automatically by pressing the auto button. Auto uses the transition duration set in the system control. You can also select the type of effect you want including mix, which does a smooth transition between sources, or dip which transitions via a third video source, such as a color generator. There is a wide range of SMPTE wipes included, plus fun DVE effects that slide or squeeze the image off screen when transitioning between video sources!
Built In Audio Mixer with 6 Band EQ, Compressor and Limiter
With a built in Fairlight audio mixer, ATEM Television Studio makes it possible to do complex live sound mixing. The internal mixer features enough channels for all SDI inputs, as well as extra channels for the XLR, RCA and MADI inputs! Each input channel features the highest quality 6 band parametric EQ, compressor, limiter, expander and noise gate as well as level and pan controls. You can mix all these input channels together at the same time, or you can set video sources to “audio follow video”. The audio mixer is extremely powerful and it can be adjusted from the front panel using the dedicated audio mixer controls and LCD. Plus you can also mix audio using ATEM Software Control!
Record to Internal Storage or USB Disks!
ATEM Television Studio supports recording to external USB flash disks! Or if an optional M.2 flash disk is installed, you can record directly to internal network shared storage! The internal storage plus any external USB disks will be available to share over the local Ethernet network so other people can work on post production tasks such as editing, color correction and graphics preparation. All recordings are in H.264 format with AAC audio for broadcast quality video and small file sizes. You can also connect multiple USB disks, so recording will continue if a disk becomes full. You even get buttons on the control panel to start recording and you can see record status in the multiview!
