Rental ID: BLACKMAGIC_ATEM_STUDIO_4K_VISION_MIXER_HIRE
The Blackmagic ATEM Production Studio 4K Vision Mixer / Live Switcher now available from Panny Hire. This vision mixer is a live event multi-camera production switcher that features 8 x individual inputs (SD/HD/4K UHD) via 4 x HD-SDI (6G-SDI) and 4 x HDMI (4K HDMI) ports, which is ideal so you can hookup pretty much any camera or video device!
The vision mixer / switcher output feed can be SD/HD or 4K UHD, live and in real time with zero rendering. The mixer can handle inputs on all eight channels at the same time. It provides six video outputs and two program outputs (over HD-SDI and HDMI) again at SD/HD or 4K UHD resolutions, also available is an AUX output that delivers a totally clean feed excluding any downstream effects configured by you in the mixer.
One of the coolest features is the Multiview monitoring (at HD resolution) that provides the functionality to configure, program and preview six active inputs and two graphics channels and media players, all on one Multiview screen at the same time! We can supply a 27″ Apple Cinema Display if required (additional) however any TV or monitor will work perfectly with the ATEM.
Live Keying is also made easy via one upstream and two downstream real time hardware Keyers. They provide not just live Keying but also lots of real time effects and composites again at SD/HD and 4K UHD resolutions, in 10-bit. The downstream keying hardware also allows the use of two graphics/logos/titles or lower thirds elements to be composited in the feed, all live. There are over 20+ stored graphics built-in and in a varieties of industry formats.
Not forgetting the audio department, the ATEM vision mixer also features a 2 x channel audio mixer that accepts embedded audio feeds from the six active video inputs via HD-SDI and HDMI inputs. Eight inputs, six can be active at any time on the Multiview screen. The audio is embedded on the output which is convenient, via the HD-SDI and HDMI outputs, all balanced audio, etc.
The Blackmagic ATEM is fully controlled via the comprehensive Blackmagic software (included) compatible with Mac or PC. The physical connection between the computer and the vision mixer is a regular USB 2.0 port, which every computer has, obviously. Hardware control panels, control surfaces and broadcast panels are also available if you prefer the physical controls (additional). We find operating via our MacBook Pro and external 27″ Apple Cinema Display a dream!
