Live Production Switching

You can turn any live event into a professional HD television program with the ATEM Television Studio HD. It’s ideal for broadcasters, professional sports, concerts, seminars, or even the new emerging generation of web broadcasters using platforms such as YouTube Live, Facebook Live and Twitch.tv. You can switch between multiple cameras, game consoles and computers in real time, all with broadcast quality transitions, graphics and effects. Both models feature clean professional switching so there’s never a glitch when changing sources. That means you can even use the ATEM TV Studio HD as a front-end controller for your AV system and switch between multiple sources with the press of a button.

Extremely Portable Design

ATEM Television Studio HD is a true professional switcher in a compact and portable form you can use anywhere. The all-in-one design includes a built in AC power supply, full front panel controls with input source buttons for switching, an integrated LCD screen, spin knob, and more. It’s small enough to use on your desk, a cart, or it can be mounted in equipment racks using the optional Teranex Mini Rack Shelf.

Panel Control with an LCD

The ATEM Television Studio Pro HD offers a built-in switcher and integrated LCD. You get a professional hardware control panel with high quality buttons, pans and a fader to enable fast switching between sources. It also provides you with the ability to add effects, plus smoothly manage and color grade remote cameras, mix audio, and key graphics. You can perform all of this live and in real-time.

Like all professional control panels, this one features light-up buttons with labels to help you navigate the functionality. Buttons include switching, audio control, down stream keyer, media players, cut-bus style or automating switching with transitions, and the inevitable fade to black.

Use the integrated LCD screen to adjust switcher features via menus or for video and audio monitoring, aux control, and to display the audio channel you are currently adjusting.

Free Software for MAC or Windows 

Want to use your MAC or Windows PC instead of the Control Panel or in tandem with it? Maintain creativity and control with a free software control panel (with purchase). ATEM Software Control lets you use the control panel and parameter palettes to switch cameras live, change transitions, and adjust key settings. You can also load graphics for display or keying, control the hardware audio mixer, automate clip playback from decks and program and activate macros. It coordinates up to (8) cameras, game consoles or computers at a time.

Camera control lets you remotely adjust iris, focus, camera settings, and color correction, all via SDI connectivity. Work alone on your laptop computer or, for more complex events, use multiple laptops and people to switch, control cameras, mix audio, and manage graphics and media, at the same time.

Use the free software to:

  • Switch your program
  • Organize your media
  • Mix your audio
  • Control your cameras

SDI & HDMI Inputs

This professional broadcast-quality switcher includes 4x 3G-SDI and 4x HDMI inputs. You can connect up to (8) cameras, game consoles, computers or other sources. Work in all SD and HD formats up to 1080p60. That means you can use either affordable HDMI consumer cameras or work with professional SDI broadcast cameras with the ATEM Television Studio Pro HD. 

The unit also features reference input, analog audio in, RS-422 PTZ control, and Ethernet for connecting hardware or software control panels. Unlike other switchers, all video inputs feature automatic frame re-synchronizers, so you don’t need expensive Genlock cameras to run it. This means you can plug in any video source.

SDI Outputs

ATEM Television Studio includes professional SDI program and aux outputs, along with SDI and HDMI outputs for multiview monitoring. The SDI program output lets you connect to professional decks and recorders, like an optional HyperDeck Studio Mini, so you can record your program at the highest possible quality.

Multiview SDI and HDMI outputs make it easy to monitor your program on virtually any display, including consumer HD televisions. The Aux output lets you send your switched program or a clean feed without graphics and overlays out to another display, deck, or even massive screens on stage behind a performer.

8-Channel Multiview

With built-in multiview, you can view all your video sources on a single monitor. Connect any standard HDTV to get multi camera monitoring. The multiview output lets you see up to (8) channels of video on a single HDMI television or SDI monitor. You can see all of your cameras, tally indicators, graphics, preview and final program output all on the same display at the same time. You can also customize labels, see audio meters, set safe area markers, and more.


The ATEM Television Studio Pro HD switcher offers an integrated 100-240V power supply with standard IEC connection for worldwide compatibility.

Insert Broadcast-Quality Transitions

Select and instantly use broadcast quality transitions like mixes, wipes, dips and more when switching between sources. You can adjust the duration of transitions, along with a wide range of options including border, border color and width, position, direction, and more. There are (18) customizable transitions to provide your HD program with a high-end broadcast look! You can also use the DVE for transitions, to create graphic wipes, and even stingers when you use it with your optional HyperDeck Studio Mini, playing back 4:4:4:4 graphics with fill and key back to the switcher.

Transition Possibilities:

Cut – the most simple and widely used transition. Provides an instant change from one source to another. Cuts can be performed by directly selecting sources or by pressing the cut button to switch to the next source on the preview bus.

Mix – mix or dissolve from one source to the next with a smooth blend. You can set custom timing to manually blend in a live mix situation.

Dip – gradual blend with either solid color, graphic, or another clip between (2) video sources. Dips to black or white are popular. This also is effective with logos and sponsorship graphics.

Wipe – a whooping (18) wipe patterns are provided so you can create over 100 different styles of wipe transitions. Some include: diamonds, circles, squares, and more.

DVE Push & Squeeze – Digital Video Effects (DVE) allows you to push, spin, squeeze, or swoosh your live video from one camera to the next. (35) pre-programmed DVE moves are provided.

Graphic Wipe - combine sponsor logos with transitions during a live production. Use the DVE to create flying graphic effects and logo wipe transitions. You can create high resolution logos in Photoshop using the Plug-in to load directly into the ATEM media pool.

2D DVE Transitions and Picture-In-Picture Effects

A digital video effects (DVE) processor lets you position, resize, and scale live video in real time. That means you can create professional picture in picture effects with customizable borders and drop shadows with lighting. Imagine using a picture in picture effect to superimpose a commentator when covering events such as sports, training videos, interviews, and even gaming competitions. You also get (17) DVE powered transitions that you can use to squeeze and swoosh between sources, or to create graphic wipe transitions with your own graphics.


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.

Color Correction

Balance your camera and create unique looks from this switcher. It includes a built-in CCU and DaVinci Resolve primary color corrector. Use it to balance camera color and create unique looks from the switcher. You can use the buttons on the hardware panel to make basic adjustments, or use the DaVinci Resolve primary interface on the software control panel.


Turn any event into a broadcast-quality television program with the ATEM Television Studio Pro HD switcher. You can generate live programming for display on large televisions or projectors in venues, duplicate and distribute copies for sale, or connect the output to an encoder for internet streaming. Best of all, you get both HDMI and SDI connections so it works with everything from consumer cameras, computers and video game consoles, all the way up to high end broadcast cameras. Simply plug in your compatible cameras, a display, and setup your laptop to run the software control panel.

Broadcast – create multi-camera HD programs in real-time. Ideal for sports, live events, interviews, studio shows, and more. You can even use it for your own internet talk show with Skype of guest interviews, titles and custom graphics to brand your show.

Live Events – shoot and edit at the same time to save you time in Post Production.

Live Speaker Events & Conferences – Switch between cameras to present the speaker and their slides, as appropriate. Add picture-in-picture effects and incorporate transitions.

Gaming Competitions – capture your next gaming event or competition with multiple cameras and the ability to have a real-time feed you can pass on to social media for your small screen fans. Overlay a headset microphone for your live commentator.

Behind-the-Scenes AV Integrators – with clean switching of up to (8) video, ATEM Television Studio Pro HD is the perfect front end solution for complex AV setups. Simply connect your client’s sources and then show them how easy it is to switch with the touch of a button.

Live Worship – feed your live programming of multiple cameras to your big screen to involve everyone in the place or stream it online for the home viewer.

  • 4x HDMI input *
  • 4x SDI input *
  • Ethernet
  • RS-422 PTZ camera support or GVG protocol switcher remote control
  • 4x 3G-SDI return feeds for Talkback Outputs or Tally and camera control
  • AUX SDI Output
  • Multi-View SDI Output
  • Multi-View HDMI Output
  • Reference Input
  • Program Output
  • 2x XLR Audio Inputs

* NOTE: connects up to (8) cameras, computers, gaming consoles, or other sources. All inputs can switch between NTSC/PAL and 720p, 1080i and 1080p HD formats up to 1080p60.

Talkback Included

Create real-time communication between your Blackmagic Studio Camera and the ATEM Television Studio Pro HD switcher. Plug your director’s headset into the switcher’s Talkback Input and your camera person’s headset into the Blackmagic Studio Camera’s Talkback Input, then connect the two via SDI I/O.

ATEM Television Studio features built in talkback that takes advantage of rarely used SDI channels 15 and 16 to send talkback audio to/from your camera. Headset connections on the front panel support talking and listening to headsets connected to cameras that support SDI talkback.

The talkback from the camera is embedded in the SDI video feed from the camera to the switcher. If you connect the talkback SDI outputs of the switcher back to the camera, then the director’s talkback audio is sent to the cameras along with tally and camera control. The 4x SDI outputs feature talkback to cameras with mix minus. This lets you send program audio back to an interviewee so they hear everything except themselves, and won’t be distracted by hearing a delayed audio echo.


Titles and Custom Graphics

Store up to (20) of your own custom graphics or logos and get them on air in seconds. Simply upload the files from the media management page of the software control panel into the ATEM’s media pool, then select any file to play through the (2) built-in media players when you need them. 

Media players utilize flash memory, so your graphics are saved after the power is turned off. An included Photoshop plug-in lets you upload graphics from your Photoshop program directly into the ATEM media pool from a computer over an Ethernet network.

Real-Time Keyers

Use green screens and mix graphics with live video feed to demonstrate charts, maps, graphics, or add virtual sets behind your onscreen talent. The upstream keyer works with chroma, patterns, shapes, and linear keys. It also features (2) downstream keyers for adding graphics, logos, and bugs to your video.

3G-SDI Connections and Formats up to 1080p60

The ATEM Television Studio Pro HD switcher features 3G-SDI connections that are multi-rate and support SD-SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI video formats. That means you can work with any professional camera or deck in all formats ranging from NTSC/PAL up to 720p, 1080i and even 1080p up to 60 frames per second.

Professional Audio Mixer

Use the professional audio mixer to mix camera audio with audio from the analog XLR inputs, as well as other HDMI sources, like computers and gaming consoles. It features balance control, fader control, and external audio sources.

You can mix audio right from the front panel or you can use the audio mixer control tab on your Mac or PC to get a complete on-screen, multi-track mixing interface with level meters. Easily direct camera and external audio with precision level and balance adjustments. You can also quickly enable and disable channels or set audio to automatically follow the video source.

Remote Camera Control

Get full control of your cameras right from the ATEM software control. Your Blackmagic Studio Camera can be controlled via the SDI program feed to the camera, so you can control its innate camera settings and full color corrector, remotely from the ATEM software control panel. There are (2) types of control interface: a CCU layout for traditional camera control style or a color corrector interface (which is the same as DaVinci Resolve’s primary color corrector, so you can use all your color correction skills from DaVinci Resolve to add creativity to your live production).

AUX SDI Output

Feed your video output to big screens and video projectors on stage with the ATEM Television Studio. The ATEM features an independent auxiliary output ideal for feeding big video screens on stage. It can also be used to send clean feeds (without on air graphics) to recorders for program mastering.

The aux button makes it easy to select exactly what you want to send to the aux output. Auxiliary outputs can be selected to any video input, media players, the preview bus, test signals and more. Aux outputs are also fantastic for technical monitoring, such as when you are doing camera control, because it can be set to automatically switch to the camera you are adjusting.
