Product Overview Broadcast H.264 files live with ATEM Television Studio
Introducing the world's first live production switcher that combines a professional switcher with a broadcast quality H.264 encoder. That means you get live multi-camera production and broadcast encoding for the Internet all in one unit. ATEM Television Studio is so easy to use you don't even need to be a video professional to use it. Just plug in any HDMI or SDI camera and you are live. You can even use low cost consumer HDMI HD cameras.

Internet Broadcasting
With the Internet becoming the television transmitter for all of us, now ATEM Television Studio lets you do live production and simultaneously generate H.264 files for the web, all in real time. The moment your event is finished, your encoded file is ready for distribution. Imagine covering events that previously could never justify the cost of a professional multi-camera production, such as local government meetings, school productions, local sports, car racing, concerts, weddings, bands, communities, air shows and many more.

Built to Perform
ATEM Television Studio might be small, but it's packed with professional power. ATEM includes all the same features as the most powerful switchers used in broadcast, and is not "dumbed down." This means you get professional results, and a familiar M/E style of operation. ATEM is affordably priced because you can get started with only the switcher chassis and a software based control panel. Then when it's time to add dedicated hardware control, you get only the best because ATEM uses premium quality switches, faders and joysticks that are normally only found on the most expensive switchers available. ATEM even uses an FAA certified operating system for a true broadcast grade switcher.

Premium Quality
For the highest quality video with extremely low processing delay, ATEM features a fully 10 bit digital design. This means you get the highest quality available from cameras, servers and character generators with true 10 bit video quality maintained throughout the entire signal path. Get better chroma keying and seamless layering from HDMI and SDI sources, so all your video maintains that pristine broadcast quality look.

Creative Power
ATEM is the most creative solution for live switching. All transitions are instantly available and include the same cut, mix and wipe found on traditional mixers. It's simple to load graphics into the 2 built in media player frame-stores for exciting custom titles and logos. If you're doing green screen shoots, then the ATEM keyer includes full chroma keying. Imagine loading a rendered background and using the chroma keyer for an affordable virtual set. ATEM Television Studio also includes 2 downstream keyers so you can add graphics such as "live" and "replay". You get professional results with ATEM.

Incredible Features
You simply get more features with ATEM. You get an upstream keyer, with chroma, pattern, shaped and linear keying. You also get 2 downstream keyers and independent fade to black. This powerful feature set means you can produce true professional broadcast style live productions. When you're on the move, the built in multi view monitoring totally eliminates monitoring costs. Nothing beats ATEM for creative features, quality and affordability.

"Overall, for simple, high-quality switching, recording, and streaming of HD-SDI/HDMI inputs, the ATEM Television Studio is very tough to beat at sub-$1,000 price point. It’s all I would really need for the types of live events that I typically produce. Just be sure to fully assess the inputs, outputs, and production elements you require before making the purchase." - SCV Online

Data Sheet Features • ATEM Television Studio includes all of the professional features you need to turn any live event into an amazing HD television program! Connect up to 6 cameras, use the powerful upstream keyer for chroma keying and other special effects, add professional broadcast transitions, create custom logos, bugs and lower thirds with the included Photoshop plug-in and get them on-air instantly with the 2 built-in downstream keyers. You also get Multi View, which lets you see everything at once, all of your sources, preview, and final program output on a single HD screen!
• The ATEM 1 M/E Production Switcher and the ATEM TV Studio now have an audio mixer, sourced from audio embedded on all SDI/HDMI Inputs, the Media Players and the analog Audio-In on the breakout cable for the 1 M/E and the AES/EBU input on the TV Studio.
• Audio mixer monitoring can be enabled on the analog Audio-Out on the breakout cable on the 1 M/E only. The default for the Audio-Out is Program audio

Choose from an incredible range of transitions including Cut, Mix, Dip and Wipe patterns. ATEM Television Studio makes every transition instantly available and gives you full control over type, pattern, length and more. There’s no limit to the combination of exciting effects, and because it’s so easy to use, you’ll be able to create the perfect ‘on air’ style for your production in minutes!

• The cut transition is the most simple and widely used of all transitions! When you press the Cut button, ATEM instantly changes from your current program source to the preview source. Cuts can be performed by directly selecting sources or by pressing the Cut button to switch to the next source on the preview bus.

• The mix, or dissolve transition, is one of the most elegant transitions in live production! Gradually transitioning from one source to the next by creating a smooth blend brings out the emotion in your production. You can set custom timings or use the t-bar to manually blend the transition for the perfect live mix!

• Similar to mix transitions, a dip transition is a gradual blend that includes either a solid color, graphic, or another clip between the two video sources. Dips to black or white between sources are the most popular, or you can use logos or sponsor graphics. Dips are incredibly creative and versatile!

• ATEM Television Studio has 18 built in wipe patterns, which let you create over 100 different styles of wipe transitions! Choose from circles, diamonds, squares and more. Shapes and patterns can be inverted, softened, or even have customized colored borders. You can even insert live video into the borders to create amazing wipes!

Upstream Keyer:
• Create amazing multi layer live action broadcast effects using the upstream keyer! Layer live video over other video sources or graphics with incredible quality. You can use luma key, linear key, pattern key, or shoot against a green screen and use the Chroma key to instantly composite the video over virtual sets for mind blowing effects!

Luma Key:
• Luma keys are sometimes known as a self key because the same video source is used for cutting the key and overlaying the video image. Luma keys work best with high contrast images, like white elements on a black background, so that you can use the contrast to cut the black background and replace it with live video or graphics.

Linear Key:
• Get incredibly clean, high quality results with Linear keying by using two separate sources for the fill and the key to create one video image! The fill signal contains the video to be stacked over the background, while the key signal contains a grayscale mask to cut out, or mask, the area to be filled.

Chroma Key:
• Used every day for TV weather forecasts, chroma keys are a powerful way of combining live images together in real time! The presenter typically stands in front of a green or blue background and the Chroma keyer will remove only that color and combine it with another image such as a video or graphic.

Pattern Key:
• Use the Pattern keyer to create amazing transitions! Combine live images with any of the 18 built in wipe patterns to combine live images or graphics with geometric shapes. You get full control over softness, symmetry, size and position to create unique picture in picture effects that can be transitioned to as easily as any live source!

Downstream Keyers:
• ATEM Television Studio includes 2 downstream keyers so you can add high quality graphics like logos, bugs, and titles from the built in media players over the live ‘on air’ program output! Downstream keyers are the last layers of keying so they overlay all video switched to the main program output.

Audio Mixer:
• The incredibly powerful built in audio mixer lets you direct camera and external audio with precision level and balance adjustments. You can enable or disable channels, or activate Audio Follow Video mode instantly. Adjust the mixer via the ATEM control software or plug in an external Mackie standard USB fader panel.

• See all of your sources simultaneously on a single display! Multi View makes it easy to see your sources, graphics, preview and program outputs on a single screen so you don’t need separate monitors for your individual cameras. You get HDMI and SDI Multi View outputs so you can connect professional broadcast SDI monitors or even low cost consumer HDTV sets!

Multiple TV Standards:
• Depending on your production, you might want to work in 720p HD for one show, 1080i HD for another, or even NTSC/PAL for standard definition work. ATEM Television Studio is designed to operate in virtually any SD or HD television format. Simply select the standard in the control panel and all inputs and outputs will automatically be set to match!

Media Players:
• Eliminate external character generators by storing up to 20 broadcast quality RGBA graphic files in the media pool! The 2 media players appear as input sources to your switcher. You can transition to graphics as full frame video or feed them to the keyers for overlaying video. Popular image formats such as PNG, TGA, BMP, GIF, JPEG, and TIFF are supported.

Photoshop Plug-in:
• Graphic designers know and use Photoshop every day. Now they can use the included Photoshop plug-in to create broadcast graphics and instantly add them to the ATEM Television Studio’s media pool. Add professional looking logos, lower thirds, scorecards or other real time graphics and get them on air in seconds!
