ATEM Constellation

ATEM Camera Control Panel

Remotely control four cameras, all from a single control panel!

The ATEM Camera Control Panel is a professionally built broadcast camera control unit that extends the software features in ATEM Software Control to add high quality physical buttons and controls that are much faster to use. ATEM Constellation 8K supports camera control when used with the Blackmagic Studio Cameras, URSA Mini Pro and URSA Broadcast cameras for full remote camera control. The control panel lets a single person monitor and adjust a wide range of camera parameters such as black levels, gain, color balance, shutter speed and more. This leaves your camera operators free to focus on more important tasks such as framing and shot composition. Plus it works with all ATEM switcher models!

Works with Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera

Works with Blackmagic Studio, URSA Mini and Broadcast Cameras

ATEM Constellation 8K works with the latest Blackmagic SDI cameras that have studio camera features that you can remotely control! This means you get remote camera control, tally indicators and a DaVinci color corrector built in. All control is via the switcher aux output connection to the camera PGM SDI input, allowing you to broadcast control commands from the switcher to the camera with a single SDI cable! That means you can remotely control settings in the camera plus focus, iris and zoom on supported lenses. Pocket Cinema Cameras include a DaVinci primary color corrector so you get more than simple CCU controls as you can also do a full color grade in the camera for a cinematic look!

One person can control up to 4 cameras at the same time!

When working on live production, it’s important all of the cameras are matched with proper color balance so that you get a consistent look as you cut and transition between the different cameras. The ATEM Camera Control Panel features 4 camera controllers in one panel, so you can simultaneously control 4 of your cameras at the same time. When used with a larger number of cameras, you can control more even on a single panel because it's very quick to change which camera you control on each CCU channel. Each camera controller includes a LCD screen with soft buttons and knobs and a full set of traditional CCU controls, so you always get a clear indication of the camera state.

Scenes and Camera Controls

Scene and Camera Controls

The top section on each camera control has settings for changing camera settings, plus it lets you save and recall scene presets. Getting remote access to important camera settings is vital when you are working in conditions where the light can change during your job such as daylight, and with these settings you can quickly adjust cameras based on changes in the scene. Controls in this section include master gain, white balance, shutter speed and more!

Gain and Pedestal Controls

The center section features independent RGB controls for adjusting the camera color for the white and black parts of the image. Because the Blackmagic cameras with studio features have a full DaVinci Resolve primary color corrector built in, you have amazing control over the color in the camera. These red, green and blue controls for adjusting blacks and whites mean you can accurately match multiple cameras, which is vital for cutting seamlessly without color shifts. One trick experienced camera control operators use is to only adjust the red and blue channels, so you can add and remove red and blue tint without getting to far away from accurate color!

Lens and Iris Controls

Lens and Iris Controls

The lower section of the panel is where the most used controls are located and features a large easy to read camera number that highlights red when the camera is on air! The main control for operating the cameras is the high quality professional joystick that’s used to precisely adjust the iris when moved up and down, and the master black when the knob is rotated. This is the exact same type of control that's used on camera control units used in broadcast, so you get a true professional user interface that can be the ideal training tool for any high end live broadcast truck or studio. There's also a button to lock the CCU and indicators for network and errors.
