ATEM SDI

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

The ATEM Camera Control Panel is a professionally designed broadcast camera control unit that extends the software features in ATEM Software Control to add high quality physical hardware controls that are much nicer to use. All ATEM SDI models support camera control when used with the Blackmagic Studio Camera models for amazing professional broadcast workflows. 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 Studio Camera

ATEM SDI works with the latest Blackmagic Studio Cameras to add studio features that you can remotely control! Studio Cameras are designed for live production as because they feature a large bright 7" viewfinder, remote camera control, large tally indicator, sunshade and phantom powered microphone connections. All video and control is via the ATEM SDI outputs to the SDI program return input on the camera. That means you can remotely control any setting in the camera plus focus, iris and zoom on supported lenses. Blackmagic Studio Cameras include a DaVinci primary color corrector so you get much more than simple CCU controls as you can also do a full color grade in the camera!

Control Blackmagic Cameras

Control 4 Cameras Simultaneously!

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 control all of your ATEM SDI cameras. When used on larger switchers, you can control more cameras because it's very quick to change numbers on each control channel. Each camera controller includes a large LCD screen with soft buttons and knobs at the top of the panel, and a full set of professional controls below, so you get a very clear indication of the most important camera parameters.

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!


White Balance

Gain and Pedestal Controls

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 Studio Camera models 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 too far away from accurate color!


Iris Control
White Balance

Independent RGB controls for adjusting the white part of the image.

Coarse Control

Independent RGB controls for adjusting the black part of the image.

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.


Iris Control

Expand Your Production Workflow

Expand Your Production Workflow

Works seamlessly with all ATEM control panels!

Adding the ATEM Camera Control Panel to your ATEM SDI is easy as all the network settings have been assigned for you, so you can simply connect an Ethernet cable direct from the ATEM Camera Control Panel to the ATEM SDI's Ethernet connection. Because Ethernet is a network, you can also use the ATEM Camera Control Panel with the ATEM 1 M/E Advanced Panel for an incredibly advanced live production setup that works the same as the biggest switchers in the world. The ATEM panels feature loop through Ethernet connections so you just loop through the panels. Plus, if you add bigger ATEM switchers later, you can keep using the panels, or even move the panels between switchers for different jobs.

True Broadcast Camera Control

True Broadcast Camera Control

ATEM SDI is the tiny switcher that’s big on features!

Just because ATEM SDI is a small and low cost switcher, it doesn't mean it’s small on the inside! ATEM SDI is an absolutely massive switcher for features and adding ATEM hardware panels gives you a professional workflow that’s used by broadcasters worldwide. If you're doing paid work, need a professional system for education or just want the speed of a hardware panel then the ATEM Camera Control Panel is well worth the investment. The ATEM Camera Control is incredibly fast to use as it features traditional CCU controls so you get the benefit of years of broadcast experience. Now you can get the same workflow that broadcasters use with ATEM SDI and Blackmagic Studio Cameras!
