The Blackmagic Design ATEM 2 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K Switcher  is a live event multi camera production switcher with 20 12G-SDI inputs built into a 2RU chassis. Supporting HD and UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) video formats at up to 60p, the switcher is optimized for live productions where fast action comes into play, especially sports and many live shows. Switching takes place in real time, and there is an internal frame synchronizer to ensure seamless transition from one input to the next. Video can be output via three dedicated SDI program feeds plus an additional down-converted SDI feed that reduces UHD 4K content down to HD. There are also six aux SDI outputs for delivering an ISO of any input channel, outputting a "clean" feed free of graphics or overlays, or conning local monitors. Plus, up to two outputs can be used for multi-video monitoring of multiple video sources on one or two displays.



The switcher features luma and chroma keyers for real time effects and composites in Ultra HD, with 10-bit processing. Two downstream keyers allow you to use two graphics/logos/titles/lower thirds from up to 32 stored graphics in a wide variety of formats. Additionally, the switcher features a built-in SuperSource layer switcher which, in addition to the two full M/E's, keyers, and DVE, provides an additional four independent DVE channels letting you re-size and position live cameras, video replays and broadcast graphics.

A built-in 24-input audio mixer handles the embedded SDI audio from the 20 active video inputs plus two XLR and two unbalanced RCA inputs to provide you flexibility and creative audio options. Audio output is embedded in the SDI stream, as well as available via balanced XLR audio outputs. The control panels connect via the Ethernet port and provide control all the features of the switcher. Illuminated front panel buttons on the switcher allow you to locally select the aux output, while a 2-inch LCD screen built into the front of the unit allows you to see the aux output for instant confirmation of the correct output.


Either a Mac or PC running the included ATEM software controls the switcher's operation and settings. For those who like the feel of a physical control panel, the optional ATEM 1 M/E and 2 M/E Broadcast Panels can be used.
