The advanced ATEM 1 M/E Production Studio 4K features extra inputs, full motion DVE, stinger transitions, larger media pool with full motion clips and 3 auxiliary outputs.

Take your live production beyond broadcast quality! ATEM Production Studio 4K has all the features you need for the most innovative live concerts, sporting events, theatre productions, conferences and more! When you're doing live events with super large high resolution screens, then simply switch your ATEM Production Studio 4K to Ultra HD for incredible quality. Many live events now use massive high resolution LED screens and projectors and now you can drive those screens in full resolution.

Powerful Software and Hardware Control
ATEM live production switchers have the widest range of control options. You get full switcher control from any laptop or desktop computer with the included ATEM software control panel for both Mac and Windows. For demanding live production environments you can add a hardware based ATEM 1 M/E or 2 M/E Broadcast Panel featuring the highest quality buttons, knobs and faders for even faster switching. You also get an SDK for custom control. Only ATEM gives you such a wide range of control options!

ATEM Production Studio includes advanced 6G-SDI and HDMI 4K inputs that are SD, HD or Ultra HD switchable so you can connect to virtually anything! Every input supports embedded audio mixing and features a frame resynchronizer so you can use sources without genlock such as consumer HDMI cameras or even computers for live PowerPoint™ presentations! You also get 2 balanced XLR audio inputs for connecting professional mixers and a HiFi audio input for consumer equipment like an iPod®.

Get all the outputs you need to record your video master and to broadcast your program to the audience at the event! ATEM includes program and down converted program outputs plus auxiliary outputs allowing clean feeds, perfect for connecting to giant outdoor LED screens, projectors, disk recorders, monitors and broadcast decks! The multi view outputs are 1080i HD so you can use any TV or monitor. You also get a balanced XLR output of your audio mix, which is also embedded into all video outputs.

Multi View Monitoring
ATEM's built in multi view lets you monitor the switcher's video inputs on a single SDI monitor or regular HDMI TV! Multi view outputs in regular 1080i HD, so even if your broadcast is in SD or Ultra HD you can still use a standard TV for monitoring! You can customize the multi view layout and also add custom labels. Multi view makes it easy to watch your program, preview, and 8 live sources all simultaneously on a single monitor. Multi view means you get a true portable solution.

Creative Transitions
ATEM includes a huge range of real time high quality transitions that are available in all SD, HD or Ultra HD resolutions! Use mixes, dips, wipes and more for amazing broadcast quality live switching! Every transition is instantly available and you get full control of the transition type, pattern, length and other attributes.
