The all new Blackmagic Design ATEM 4 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K lets customers create live-switched, high frame rate HD and Ultra HD programs at up to 60 frames per second. Featuring advanced 12G-SDI technology, customers can connect the latest 2160p60 cameras using a single, standard SDI cable. The multi rate 12G-SDI connections automatically switch to 6G-SDI, 3G-SDI and HD-SDI so the switcher is compatible with existing HD equipment. The ATEM 4 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K can be used to master programs in 2160p60 while simultaneously outputting them in HD with realtime down conversion. It’s a future proof switcher that lets broadcasters start building a library of amazing Ultra HD content, even if they need to continue broadcasting 1080HD today.
For keying and effects, the Blackmagic ATEM 4 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K gives customers a total of 16 new advanced keyers for more high end creative options than ever before. Customers get 4 new ATEM Advanced Chroma Keyers on each of the 4 mix effects rows. The new keyers feature adjustable on-screen controls for selecting and sampling a region of color, adjustment controls for foreground, background and edges, and chroma correction tools for spill and flare suppression. That means customers can pull clean keys for professional broadcast quality composites and massive multi layer effects.
The Blackmagic ATEM 4 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K works in both HD and Ultra HD. It is designed for action filled sporting events and live concerts where smooth, crystal clear, incredibly detailed, realistic looking video is important. When combined with the extra resolution, higher frame rate and bigger color space of Ultra HD, the Blackmagic ATEM 4 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K makes the fast paced action and incredible drama of live sports look far better than even the highest end, most expensive regular HD production switchers.
