Blackmagic Design ATEM Television Studio 4K8 Live Production Switcher

The World's Most Portable All-In-One Television Studio!

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 access to 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!

ATEM Television Studio 4K8

Powerful Ultra HD live production switcher similar to the non ISO HD model, however, includes 8 x 12G-SDI inputs, 10 12G-SDI aux outputs for external recorders, 4 port 10G Ethernet switch and more!

Bring Multi-Camera Live Production to any Location!

Compact Broadcast Vans

With the all-in-one design, you can build a new generation of ultra-compact broadcast vans! You don't need racks of equipment, so you can eliminate clutter for a much nicer work environment. For stability, you can even mount the switcher inset to the desk!

Music Venues and Clubs

Some of the most exciting venues, such as downstairs music venues or comedy clubs, are too small for racks of video equipment. However, ATEM Television Studio can be carried into any venue! It’s also easy to pack up, even if the venue is still crowded.

Online Education

ATEM Television Studio is perfect for creating educational content! As the ISO model records the video inputs, you can finesse edits, replace shots and even add colour correction! Plus you can even connect to Zoom to incorporate live chat with students!

Live Sports

ATEM Television Studio is perfect for live sports because it has a simple design that's easy for community volunteers to use. It can be installed in sports clubs or taken on the road with the team! With up to 8 cameras, you'll catch all the exciting angles!

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, theatre productions, music performances, sports and more!

Includes Production, Post Production and Distribution!

Live Production

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.

Post Production

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!

Distribution

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!

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 colour 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!

Includes Loads of Extremely Creative Transitions!

ATEM Television Studio includes the same kind of transitions found on expensive broadcast switchers. This means the effects and transitions can be customised in many different ways, so they are surprisingly powerful. You'll never stop finding new ways of using them! That’s because all transitions can be customised by adjusting parameters such as duration, border colour, border width, position and direction. You can even use the DVE with a wipe transition, where the DVE moves a graphic over the wiping edge. That's called a graphic wipe and it’s often used in sports broadcasting. The preview transition button can be used to set up effects offline, which is great for eliminating mistakes.

Built-in DVE for Broadcast Video Effects

ATEM Television Studio features an independent DVE that lets you reposition graphics and create picture-in-picture compositions. You get amazing quality and the DVE supports the position, resize and scale, all in real-time. The DVE lets you create professional picture-in-picture effects with customisable 3D borders, shadows and lighting. DVEs can also be used to create amazing DVE transitions with squeeze, swoosh and push effects for adding excitement to your programming. You can even combine DVE transitions with custom graphics to create your own graphic wipe transitions! Plus there is also a SuperSource multi-layer processing engine with 4 extra DVEs!

Supports Internal Media for Stills and Motion Graphics

The built-in media pool stores broadcast-quality graphics and animations that can be played back using the built-in media players. Media players appear as independent sources so you don't need to waste any of the SDI inputs for graphics. For the highest quality, all media supports RGB colourspace with alpha channel, allowing transparency and layering. The media pool can hold 20 HD or Ultra HD resolution stills. Depending on the model, motion graphics clips for animations and stingers can be up to 720 frames in 720HD, 360 frames in 1080HD and 90 frames in 2160 Ultra HD. The ATEM Software Control allows you to upload and manage media. You can even prepare graphics in Adobe Photoshop and then download them to the media pool using the free ATEM Photoshop plug-in!

Includes 4 ATEM Advanced Chroma Keyers

ATEM Television Studio is perfect for news and on-set presentation work because it features 4 ATEM Advanced Chroma Keyers for green screen keying effects. The chroma keyers are incredibly powerful and include features such as a colour picker to sample background colours for the automatic generation of the key parameters. You get precise controls for edge and flare, and there is even a foreground colour corrector so you can match the foreground and background layers for seamless compositions. You can even use it for title overlays by creating graphics with a green or blue background. With 4 ATEM Advanced Chroma Keyers, ATEM Television Studio is perfect for creating fixed-camera virtual sets!

Powerful SuperSource Processing!

In addition to the DVE in the ATEM Television Studio, there is also a powerful SuperSource multi-layer processor! SuperSource gives you 4 extra DVE layers plus a background layer, all layered together as an additional input source. Any video input can be used as sources for each DVE, then it’s all layered together over a media pool custom background or live video. SuperSource is perfect for doing multiple picture-in-picture displays with people being interviewed because you can set up the effect so the viewer can see each person being interviewed all within a stylish graphic. SuperSource is just like having a completely independent multi-layer VFX switcher built in!

Up to 8 Standards Converted SDI Inputs!

The ATEM Television Studio HD models feature 8 independent 3G-SDI inputs, and the 4K model has 8 12G-SDI inputs. Each SDI input has a dedicated standards converter so any 720 HD, 1080 HD or 2160 Ultra HD input source will be converted to the standard of the switcher! That means each SDI input could have a different television standard and all inputs will just work! SDI input audio channels 1, 2, 3 and 4 can also be manually routed to various embedded audio channels in the program and aux outputs. Plus you can even router out audio channels 1 and 2 from the SDI inputs to the MADI digital audio output, so you can hand off the switcher input audio to an external audio engineer for mixing.

Professional SDI Outputs with 16-Channel Embedded Audio

The ATEM Television Studio includes up to nine SDI program outputs so you get enough connections to send a separate program return feed to all of your cameras! That’s important because the SDI program return is used to send tally, talkback and control information back to the cameras! You also get dedicated aux outputs for driving stage monitors and master recorders. Two of the aux outputs can be live-switched using dedicated buttons on the control panel! One of the aux outputs also includes an on-screen counter for presenter monitoring. Plus you can manually route audio into all 16 embedded audio channels in the SDI outputs! There's also a dedicated 3G-SDI and HDMI output for the multiview.

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!

Live Stream to a Global Audience!

ATEM Television Studio has a built-in hardware streaming engine for live streaming to a global audience! That means you can live stream to services such as YouTube, Facebook and Twitch in better video quality and without dropped frames. Streaming works using the Ethernet connection to the internet, or you can connect a smartphone to use mobile data! Then you simply select the streaming service and enter the streaming key using ATEM Software Control. This makes streaming easy to set up, and the convenient data rate indicator shows the internet speed required. If you're technically minded, you can even update the streaming profiles in an XML settings file to add new services!

Connect 5G or 4G Phones for Mobile Data

If you’re doing live production on location then the ATEM Television Studio supports mobile data by connecting an Apple or Android phone to the USB port. 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 detect when a phone is connected and automatically switch its internet connection to use it if the Ethernet connection is lost. When connected, the phone will also power from the USB port so it always remains charged and ready to go. By using phone tethering and mobile data, you get the perfect mobile production solution that can be transported anywhere!

Full Integration with DaVinci Resolve

Only ATEM Television Studio HD8 ISO is fully integrated into DaVinci Resolve! This means you can edit, colour-correct, and add VFX and audio mixing to your live production! Plus DaVinci Resolve is a free download for Mac, Windows and Linux, so there are no monthly license costs. Simply open the project and you'll see your live production as an edit timeline. You can trim edits and remove shots you don't want. On the cut page, the sync bin will show alternative shots in a multiview display. If you want to replace a shot, then simply click an alternative. Finally, you can add professional DaVinci colour correction. You can even relink to Blackmagic RAW camera files if you want to finish in Ultra HD!

Includes Free ATEM Software Control Panel

The ATEM Software Control app unlocks the hidden power of ATEM Television Studio by allowing access to all the features in the switcher. ATEM Software Control features a visual switcher user interface with parameter palettes for making adjustments. Although you can connect via USB, if you connect using Ethernet you can run multiple copies of ATEM Software Control on different computers! The software lets you live switch, mix audio, colour correct in the cameras and manage media. You can also build and run complex macros from the software! Plus you can save the switcher state as an XML file for recalling jobs later! You can even control trigger external HyperDeck recorders.

Add Audio Expansion for More Microphones

If you're building a podcasting studio or you need more microphones, then the ATEM Microphone Converter allows audio input expansion. It connects to the ATEM Television Studio using the MADI port, so there's no complex setup and you can daisy chain units to add more inputs. Each converter has 4 analogue inputs that are mic/line selectable and have phantom power. The design features amazing quality with an extremely low noise floor of -129dBV, a dynamic range of 131dB(A), low distortion of 0.002% and uniform tolerances across all channels. It even uses 8 separate ADCs on each input to collectively extend the dynamic range! Plus it has a fun HDMI monitoring output with scrolling audio waveforms!

Add The Ultimate Compact Studio Camera!

When you need cameras that are perfectly designed for ATEM Television Studio then the new Blackmagic Studio Cameras are an ideal choice! Blackmagic Studio Cameras have the same features as large studio cameras, miniaturised into a single compact and portable design. Plus with digital film camera dynamic range and colour science, the cameras can handle extremely difficult lighting conditions while producing cinematic-looking images. The sensor features an ISO of up to 25,600 so you can create amazing images even in dimly lit venues. Advanced features include talkback, tally, camera control, built-in colour corrector and Blackmagic RAW recording. You can even add focus and zoom controllers!

Match Cameras with an ATEM Camera Control Panel

When working on live production, it’s critical all cameras are perfectly colour matched for a consistent look as you transition between different sources. ATEM Television Studio has camera control built in, however, if you add a dedicated ATEM Camera Control Panel then you can adjust cameras using the same style of controls that are standard in the broadcast industry. Each camera controller includes an LCD screen with buttons and knobs for live camera adjustments, so you get a very clear indication of each camera’s parameters. The large joystick allows direct adjustment of the iris and rotates to set the black level. There are even red, green and blue knobs for fine control of camera colour tint!

Compatible with Blackmagic Cameras, Panels, Decks and More!

ATEM Television Studio is even more powerful as it can be expanded to grow with you. Blackmagic Studio Cameras are a great solution as they are professional broadcast studio cameras with tally, talkback and camera control, all miniaturized into a small and portable design. Of course, the full URSA Broadcast G2 is a broadcast-style camera that uses B4 lenses and has optional SMPTE fibre connections. If you want to control cameras using the same style of control broadcasters use, then you can add an ATEM Camera Control Panel for control and colour balancing of up to four cameras. For mastering, Blackmagic HyperDeck Studio recorders allow you to add recording in ProRes and DNx formats.
