Blackmagic Design Announces New ATEM Advanced Panels

The ATEM 2 M/E Advanced Panel and the ATEM 4 M/E Advanced Panel are designed to work with all ATEM switchers.

The ATEM Advanced Panels are large enough so the user has dedicated controls for the largest ATEM switchers.

“The new ATEM Panels are exciting because they give customers total control of the largest ATEM switchers such as the ATEM Constellation 8K," said Grant Petty, Blackmagic Design CEO. "With up to 24 LCDs on the 4 M/E model, combined with dynamic button labeling, customizable colors, a massive number of controls and the new design takes the ATEM Advanced Panels to a whole new level of features for live production. We’ve worked hard to build these new state of the art control panels that will enable customers to work on their live programming faster and build the most innovative television studios possible."

The 1 M/E model features a single M/E row with 10 input buttons and 1 system control LCD screen. Although it’s a 1 M/E panel, customers can control all M/Es in larger switchers. The input buttons feature user customizable colors and button label LCDs. There's also a joystick for the DVE and a T‑bar fader.

The 2 M/E model features 2 M/E rows with 20 input buttons and 2 independent system control LCDs for each row. Plus each row can control up to 4 M/Es in larger switchers. Both rows and all input buttons include LCDs for custom labeling. Each row also includes an independent select bus.

The 4 M/E model is big enough to perfectly match the features on the ATEM Constellation switcher. It features 4 M/E rows with 40 input buttons per row and 4 independent system control LCDs for each row. This “massive” panel includes 24 LCD's for custom labeling of every button on every row.
