You can add an optional ATEM 1 M/E Broadcast Panel to your ATEM Television Studio HD for the ultimate in professional control! The compact, rugged panel is made from the highest quality components and is designed for extreme speed and ease of use for even the most complex of live performances!
The ATEM 1 M/E Broadcast Panel is a professional hardware control panel with smooth acting controls, buttons and knobs for precise control of your ATEM switcher. It’s compact and fits in a standard equipment rack so you can install it on a sliding rack shelf. That makes it perfect for “fly away kits” portable mobile racks and compact broadcast vans. You get full control of your switcher, including camera inputs, transitions, keyers, fader bar, settings, DVE positioning and more! The panel connects to your switcher via ethernet and can be used simultaneously with the ATEM Software Control so one operator can be switching the show while another is loading media, mixing audio, or controlling cameras!
The switcher control panel has separate program and preview buses that you can use together to quickly and accurately switch sources on air. Selections made on the preview bus will appear on your preview screen, so you can see what you have ready to go on air, then take it live by pressing the cut or auto buttons. The program bus is always live and on air, so if you switch using the program bus the change happens immediately and is on air!
All creative transitions are instantly available on the dedicated hardware panels and include the same cut, mix and wipe transitions that you can control from the ATEM Software Control. You can cut directly, use the mix and wipe buttons and fader bar or just press AUTO to trigger the selected transition! With ATEM Broadcast Panels you get precision switcher control with the buttons you need at your fingertips.
ATEM gives you a huge range of transition styles and loads of options to control them. Immediate source to source transitions can be selected by simply pushing the cut button. For more interesting transitions, you can choose mix, dip or one of the wipes. Take manual control with the fader bar, or select auto transition button for smooth timed transitions.
You can select wipe patterns directly from the broadcast panel and customize them to suit your production style. You get complete control over wipe, symmetry, softness and also adjustments for colored borders with variable width and softness, you can even use the joystick to position the centre of a wipe. With dedicated joystick, fader and control knobs you get precise wipe pattern positioning.
The ATEM 1M/E panel gives you fast and precise control over all the DVE transition options. You get an incredibly high quality joystick, soft knob and key frame control so you can quickly design your own DVE moves with adjustments for lighting and drop shadow effects that add depth to your animated graphic composition. You can also enable the DVE key mode to fly high quality graphics into frame or select any of the pre programed push or squeeze transitions.
When you’re using the ATEM 1 M/E panel, selecting macros is faster because you can access all the stored macros at the push of a button. That means you don’t need to use a computer to work with macros. If you edit or modify a macro, the change will appear on all connected control panels because the macros are stored in the switcher itself.
Hardware control is ideal when doing chroma keying because you can finely adjust the parameters for clean key edges to get layering that looks seamless. The ATEM 1 M/E panel gives you precision control knobs so you can create the perfect chroma key quickly and accurately. With the control at your fingertips, you can adjust live key settings instantly if lighting or shadows change during the broadcast so you will always deliver incredible results.
Amazing live performances often require transitions that need to be controlled manually. The ergonomically designed T bar control lets you ride transitions perfectly as part of the live performance! Sometimes the emotion of a live event means you need to feel a transition to get it perfectly in sync with the camera operators and talent. Like a conductor, your are part of the performance and can use the switcher to drive the mood of your program as the production unfolds!
Just below the ATEM broadcast panel fader bar is the auto transition button. Selecting auto will instantly perform the next transition you have setup in the transition block. You can use auto transitions for every type of transition including dissolves, keying, wipe patterns and animated DVE transitions. Automatic transitions can be pre programed for any duration from 1 to 250 frames and are ideal for smooth constant mixing between cameras.
You get a dedicated preview transition button on the ATEM 1 M/E panel that lets you avoid on air mistakes when preparing live transitions. When using the preview transition button, the result of your settings are shown on the multi view screen in the preview window. With the preview transition button you can verify the most complicated transitions without affecting your on air program output!
The dedicated fade to black (FTB) button will smoothly fade your program output to black a preset rate. Fade to black controls the entire output of your switcher. That means all video, graphics, keys and layers will fade out in sync all at the same time! Hitting the FTB button will fade everything up again, making it perfect for the beginning or end of shows, or even when you have to fade out for commercials!
Move elements around the screen just like a video game using the Joystick! With full 3 Axis control you can adjust the symmetry of wipe patterns and control your DVE. The joystick control with the DVE is ideal to position live video over video. Scale the size, position up down or left and right for the perfect picture in picture effect. You can also use the joystick to move the DVE and enter start and end keyframe screen positions for your own customized animated DVE moves.
In live broadcast stations that demand 24/7 operation, you need to know all systems are online and working well. That’s why ATEM broadcast panels have built in redundant power supply inputs and status lights for both the control panel and the switcher chassis power supplies. If you have a power supply failure, the back up power supply will take over plus you will be notified on the status lights of the failure so you can arrange for repair while staying on air uninterrupted!
Quickly find the setting or adjustment you are looking for with a dedicated system control menu that features 12 LCD buttons. You get a large data display window above 4 sets of soft keys and control knobs to help you make precise adjustments quickly. The system control matrix of menus is organized into a multi level tree structure that is easy to navigate. Adjust keys, wipes, DVE, media players, color generators, switcher settings, aux outputs and more!
Selecting stills from the media pool and getting them ready to go on air quickly is easy with an ATEM broadcast panel. You can select any loaded still for output to either of the two media players directly from the system control menu. The panel gives you complete stills selection control independent from the media pool control on your computer!
All ATEM switchers are compatible with Mackie™ protocol USB control panels for live audio mixing! Simply connect a third party USB fader panel to your Mac or PC computer to get real time fader control of every audio channel. As you adjust levels on the panel the virtual software faders move in sync with you. You can even use the mouse to adjust levels on your computer and the flying faders will track your movement. Combining a fader panel with the built in mixer gives you the highest quality audio mixing experience.
ATEM switchers use a standard ethernet connection for control so you can connect ATEM to Mac or Windows computers running the ATEM Software Control. You can also connect an ATEM broadcast panel for greater control, or multiple combinations of both software and hardware control simultaneously! You can even connect ATEM to your network and control your switcher from anywhere in the world or use the included SDK to develop your own solution!
