The Blackmagic ATEM 1 M/E Production Studio 4K is a live event production switcher with 10 HD inputs built into a 1RU chassis. This switcher supports all video formats and can connect to cameras and other sources. It features a reference video input for synchronizing the switcher to other equipment using tri-level or blackburst sync, and each input also features its own frame synchronizer, which allows you to use cameras that do not feature Genlock as well as input video from computer sources. This switcher also includes a built-in 12 channel audio mixer that lets you manually mix sources or you can set mixer inputs to “audio follow video” so your audio crossfades as you switch between sources.

For video output, there are two program outputs for the final video, delivering SD/HD/Ultra HD via two 6G-SDI port and one HDMI 4K connector. Multi view output is avialable via an SDI or HDMI connector.


This switcher also features 4 upstream keyers and a DVE, 2 downstream keyers and the DVE allows for picture-in-picture effect.
