That’s perfect for adding pre-recorded spots or promos, credit rolls, or even slow motion instant re-plays to your live program production!

 

Power Macros

The fastest way to set up and automatically trigger events!

To automate complex sequences of precisely timed actions on your ATEM switcher, you can now create powerful shortcuts called macros. Record a sequence of transitions between video sources, including key effects, audio mixer adjustments, camera control settings and more using the ATEM software or hardware control panel. Macros are saved as XML files that can even be edited with a standard text editor so you can combine them together to build sophisticated sequences that would be impossible to execute manually during a live production! That means you can create unique looks for your programs that can be recalled instantly, copied between switchers and used over and over again!

Professional Audio Mixer

Live mix multi channel audio from your cameras in real time!

All ATEM switchers feature a powerful built in multi channel audio mixer! You can mix your camera audio and other video sources from both HDMI and SDI inputs, as well as external audio from the analog XLR and HiFi audio inputs. You can use the ATEM audio mixer for direct input mixing or use audio follow video mixing where the audio automatically crossfades when switching from one input to another. The analog audio inputs are great for microphones, audio mixers, music players and more!

 

Independent Aux Output

Feed big screens on stage!

ATEM switchers have independent auxiliary outputs that are perfect for feeding big video screens on stage or can also be used to send "clean feeds" without on air graphics to recorders for program mastering. The front panel buttons and screen make it easy to select sources such that you want to send to the aux output. Auxiliary outputs can be selected to any video input, media players, the preview bus, test signals and more! Aux outputs are fantastic for tech monitoring with SmartScope Duo 4K.
