Blackmagic Design ATEM SDI Pro ISO Live Production Switcher

The ATEM SDI Pro ISO Switcher from Blackmagic Design is similar to the ATEM Mini Pro with the exception that it has a different video connection and has new electronics for ISO recording and generation of the DaVinci project file. It features 3G-SDI connections instead of HDMI and has double the amount of video outputs. This lets you connect advanced broadcast quality cameras and recorders, expanding your live production possibilities. 

Designed to make on-location setups easy. Includes 4 SDI inputs, built-in streaming, 2 SDI outputs, Fairlight audio mixer with EQ and dynamics, DVE for picture in picture, transition effects, advanced chroma key, 20 stills media pool for titles, free ATEM Software Control and recording up to 5 video streams in real time. This setup allows you to use a variety of cameras for different camera angles and live stream direct to YouTube or create a broadcast quality link back to a studio with ATEM Streaming Bridge. It also has a built-in hardware streaming engine that lets you stream without worrying about dropped frames, with straightforward settings. You can now back up your files by connecting an Apple or Android smartphone to the USB port to use mobile data. It also supports direct recording of your streaming data to USB flash disks.

With the front panel, you can use the buttons to select sources, have recording and streaming control, adjust output selection, and manage video effects and transitions. The rear panel offers SDI connections for cameras, extra microphone inputs, USB for webcam and multiple SDI "aux" outputs for program video.

This live production switcher gives you control and freedom to add a creative edge to your interviews, computer streams, theatre production, music performances, sports and more.

ATEM SDI is a family of live production switchers designed for broadcasters who need extreme portability! ATEM SDI switchers are very similar to ATEM Mini, however the video connections are 3G-SDI and each model has double the number of video outputs! You get 4 SDI inputs on the ATEM SDI and ATEM SDI Pro ISO models and 8 SDI inputs on the ATEM SDI Extreme ISO model. Plus all SDI inputs feature standards converters and re-sync! You even get DVEs for picture in picture effects! The USB works as a webcam for connecting video to computers, while the Pro and Extreme models feature built-in streaming. For audio the Fairlight mixer includes a compressor, limiter and 6 band parametric EQ on each input!

A New Generation of Ultra Portable Live Production!

ATEM SDI 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 lets you connect multiple cameras so you can create interesting remote interviews with multiple camera angles.

Self Contained Broadcast Quality Switcher

ATEM SDI’s compact all in one design includes both a control panel as well as connections. The front panel includes easy to use buttons for selecting sources, video effects and transitions. The source buttons are large so it’s possible to use it by feel, letting the presenter do the switching! You even get buttons for audio mixing! The ATEM SDI Pro and Extreme models have 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 multiview. On the rear panel there are SDI connections for cameras, extra microphone inputs, USB for webcam plus multiple SDI "aux" outputs for program video.

ATEM SDI Pro ISO

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 colour correction!

Connect up to 8 Broadcast Cameras

With 4 or 8 video inputs, depending on the model, ATEM SDI 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 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, theatre production, music performances, sports and more!

Outputs

To ensure maximum compatibility, all ATEM SDI 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!

Live Stream via Ethernet on ATEM SDI Pro

ATEM SDI Pro and ATEM SDI Extreme 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 are palettes in ATEM Software Control for streaming setup, plus streaming status is also displayed in the multiview. 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.

Connect 5G or 4G Phones for Mobile Data

If you’re doing live production on location then the ATEM SDI Pro and Extreme 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. By using phone tethering for mobile data, ATEM SDI Pro and ATEM SDI Extreme become the perfect mobile production solutions!

Record Direct to USB Flash Disks with ATEM SDI Pro

The ATEM SDI Pro and Extreme 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 multiview.

Edit Live Production with Separate ISO Recordings!

The ATEM SDI Pro ISO and Extreme 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 colour grades, effects and graphics! Even the audio sources are all recorded so you can professionally remix your audio!

Edit Live Production in DaVinci Resolve

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 multiview 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.

Work with Professional Microphones

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 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.

Automatically Converts Any SDI Input Format

Each 3G-SDI video input features its own dedicated standards converter. That means ATEM SDI will automatically convert 1080p, 1080i and 720p sources to the switcher video standard! By default the switcher will set its video format automatically, however you can also set the switcher to any video standard manually! The SDI outputs are a true "aux" outputs so you can independently customise the source video routed to each SDI output. All outputs can be connected to cameras as they include camera control and tally information. On the more powerful ATEM SDI Pro and ATEM SDI Extreme models, the SDI output can also be selected to display the built-in multiview.

Includes Free ATEM Software Control Panel

The ATEM Software Control app unlocks the hidden power of ATEM SDI and allows access to every feature in the switcher. ATEM Software Control features a visual switcher user interface with parameter palettes for making quick adjustments. Although you can normally connect via USB, if you connect using Ethernet it's possible for multiple users to connect to ATEM SDI using separate copies of ATEM Software Control on different computers! The software lets you access full audio mixing with effects, load still frames and even do advanced macro programming! You can even save the switcher state as an XML file! If you need clip playback, you can even control HyperDeck disk recorders via Ethernet.

DVE for Picture in Picture, Transitions and Effects

One of the most exciting features on ATEM SDI 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 customisable 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 in real 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!

Monitor Sources and Status with ATEM SDI Pro Multiview!

When doing larger live productions with multiple cameras, it’s very useful to see all your video sources at the same time on a single monitor. The ATEM SDI Pro and ATEM SDI Extreme models include a professional multiview that lets you see all video inputs, preview and program on a single SDI monitor! Simply select M/V button on the front panel to select the multiview! Each camera view includes tally indicators so you know when each source is on-air, and each view also has custom labels and audio meters. Plus the ATEM SDI Extreme models allow you to select up to 16 custom views! Multiview even includes a status for recording, streaming and the audio mixer!

Built In Audio Mixer with 6 Band EQ, Compressor and Limiter

With a built-in Fairlight audio mixer, ATEM SDI 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.

Create Broadcast Links with ATEM Streaming Bridge

The ATEM Streaming Bridge is a video converter that lets you receive an H.264 stream from any ATEM SDI Pro or ATEM SDI Extreme and convert it back to video. This means you can send video to remote locations around your local Ethernet network, or via the internet globally! That's possible because it uses an advanced H.264 codec for high quality at very low data rates. This means you can create broadcast quality links back to your studio using the internet, so it's much lower cost. To make setup easy, the ATEM software utility can create a setup files that you can email to the remote studio. ATEM Streaming Bridge is the perfect way to use ATEM SDI as a remote broadcast studio!

Compatible with Blackmagic Cameras, Panels, Decks and More!

ATEM SDI is even more powerful it can be expanded to grow with you. Add an ATEM Advanced Panel to get professional industry standard switcher control. Then add an ATEM Camera Control Panel for fast control and colour balancing of up to four cameras. For cameras, Blackmagic Studio Cameras make great studio cameras as they have tally and control all built into the compact and very portable design. For mastering, Blackmagic HyperDeck Studio recorders are perfect because they include popular file formats such as ProRes, H.264 and DNx. You can even live stream using an UltraStudio or Blackmagic Web Presenter! Then add a Micro Converter SDI to HDMI 3G converter for HDMI monitoring!
