Blackmagic Design has a new broadcast quality all in one live production switcher with integrated hardware control panel. The ATEM Television Studio Pro HD features 8 inputs, multiview, auxiliary and program outputs, analog audio inputs, built in talkback, two flash based media players, a DVE for effects and more. It’s available in May for US$2,295.

ATEM Television Studio Pro HD is compatible with all SD and HD formats up to 1080p60 and also features two channels of analog audio in, RS-422, Ethernet and a built-in IEC power supply, along with program and auxiliary outputs. Customers also get both SDI and HDMI multiview outputs so they can monitor all sources, preview and program outputs, along with labels, audio meters and more, all on a single big screen television or broadcast monitor.

“With resynchronization on every input, switching is completely glitch free which means that customers can even use it as a front end controller for AV systems and cleanly switch between sources with the press of a button,” states the firm.

When used with Blackmagic Studio and URSA Mini cameras, customers get a complete remote control solution that includes talkback, tally, color correction, camera control and more, without having to add any additional cables or proprietary control boxes.

“The original ATEM Television Studio HD has been extremely popular with our customers who want a small broadcast quality switcher for live production,” said Grant Petty, Blackmagic Design CEO. “The exciting thing about our new ATEM Television Studio Pro HD is that it has all the same professional features, along with the speed of a full size 1 M/E hardware control panel for more complex, fast paced live events. When it comes to creating an entire HD program right from the switcher in real time, there simply is no faster, simpler or more affordable way to do it.”
