The Blackmagic Design ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K model includes all the benefits of the HD models and now adds Ultra HD capability with more SDI inputs! With 8 independent 12G-SDI inputs, ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K can handle all popular HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60. Each input features re-sync as well as a full low latency standards converter so input is automatically adapted to the switcher’s format. That means you can even have 8 inputs, all running different video formats! The upgraded Fairlight audio mixer features dynamics, 6 band parametric EQ, dual mono channel split and stereo simulator with audio delay on the analog inputs. ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K also features the ATEM Advanced Chroma Keyer, Ultra HD multiview and motion clips in the media pool.


12G-SDI for Ultra HD to 2160p60

The ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K features 8 standards converted 12G-SDI inputs so you can connect to both HD and Ultra HD sources. Each input also features a corresponding 12G-SDI output that can be used for camera return feeds with embedded control data, and mix minus is available on each 12G√¢‚Ǩ‚ÄòSDI output.

Full Input Standards Conversion

Each 12G-SDI input features an independent Teranex low latency standards converter allowing inputs to be any combination of HD or Ultra HD television formats. The switcher will convert inputs to the switcher’s standard, and combined with input re-sync, this means you can simply plug in and it just works.

ATEM Advanced Chroma Key

The all new ATEM Advanced Chroma Key is the next generation keyer that enables incredibly clean green screen keying in real time for seamless multi layer compositing. You get lots of key controls including on screen image sample, edge, flare, foreground color correction, separate spill controls and more.

Fairlight Audio Mixer

The ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K model now has a new incredibly powerful Fairlight audio mixer that includes pro audio features such as 6 band parametric EQ, compressor, limiter, expander/noise gate, pan, audio channel split to dual mono, stereo simulator on analog and mic inputs and an audio delay on analog inputs.
