The new super fast 6G-SDI and HDMI 4K video connections effortlessly handle Ultra HD 4K so you can easily connect to equipment using a single cable!

All the professional features of the ATEM Production Studio 4K like built in media players, downsteam keyers, upsteam keyer, transitions and color generators operate in Ultra HD 4K so you get a true native Ultra HD 4K solution.

Elegant and Compact Design

The ATEM Production Studio 4K features an elegant machined aluminum front panel that includes buttons to select sources for auxiliary output and a built in LCD that shows the live status of this output. This hardware auxiliary control is a fantastic monitoring tool that lets you set up jobs fast, and is contained in a 1 rack unit design that’s less than 6 inches deep! With built in high quality connections for all video and audio there is no need for additional breakout cables, plus the internal power supply is compatible with 110V to 240V sources so you can take your production switcher anywhere in the world!

Software and Hardware Control

ATEM Production Studio 4K includes the beautifully designed ATEM Software Control Panel for both Mac and Windows that gives you complete control of your switcher from a laptop or desktop computer! You get full control of transitions, keyers, audio mixer and switcher settings, with keyboard shortcuts that let you work faster and more efficiently. If you prefer to work with a hardware control panel then you can optionally add an ATEM Broadcast Panel for super fast professional switching! There's even a developer SDK included!

Advanced 6G-SDI and HDMI 4K Inputs

ATEM Production Studio 4K can be switched between SD, HD and Ultra HD 4K, so it connects to a wide range of HDMI and SDI cameras! You get 4 6G-SDI and 4 HDMI 4K inputs for up to eight simultaneous live inputs. All inputs feature frame resynchronizing, so you can use cameras without a genlock, or even computer sources such as Keynote™ or PowerPoint™ presentations! Also included are 2 balanced XLR audio inputs and HiFi audio input for connecting professional and consumer audio equipment.

Loads of Outputs

There are six video outputs, including three program, two multi view and one independent auxiliary output! Use the program and auxiliary outputs to connect to giant outdoor LED screens, projectors, monitors and easily switch between SD, HD and Ultra HD 4K video formats, using 6G-SDI and HDMI 4K. The multi view has HD-SDI and HDMI outputs and the built in audio mixer output is embedded into all SDI and HDMI video outputs as well as on two balanced XLR analog audio outputs.

Multi View Monitoring

The built in multi view lets you monitor the switcher’s video inputs on a single SDI monitor or HDMI TV! Even when operating in Ultra HD 4K you can still use a commonly available HD monitor or television because the multi view output will automatically detect the monitor and down convert to HD. Multi view makes it easy to watch your program, preview, 6 live inputs and 2 media players side by side. You can also add custom labels that make it easy to identify each input!

Creative Transitions

Get the same high quality transitions found on regular high definition professional switchers, that now all operate in Ultra HD 4K. Use mix, dip and wipe effects for impressive broadcast quality live switching! Every transition is instantly available and you get full control of the transition type, pattern, length and other attributes. There’s also a choice of wipe patterns that let you create a customized ‘on air’ look to suit the style and content of your production.

Internal Media Players

ATEM Production Studio 4K includes 2 built in media players that can store up to 20 full resolution Ultra HD 4K still frames with key and fill. All popular image formats, such as PNG, TGA, BMP, GIF, JPEG and TIFF are supported. You can load media players with lower third name straps, logos and more, all of which can be recalled in an instant! ATEM includes a Photoshop Plug-in that lets you instantly download graphics and titles from Photoshop directly into the ATEM media pool!

Perfect Quality Keying

For the sharpest, most incredible looking effects, ATEM Production Studio 4K features fully digital broadcast video quality. You get 10-bit color precision combined with the incredible resolution of Ultra HD 4K, so you get the sharpest keying. The upstream keyer includes independent chroma, pattern, shaped and linear keying so you can create stunning visual effects. You also get 2 downstream keyers for logos, titles and a wide range of other ‘on air’ graphics. This powerful set of keyers lets you create true professional broadcast quality live production!

Audio Mixer

With built in audio mixing you can use embedded HDMI and SDI audio from your cameras and other video signals as well as external audio from the analog XLR and HiFi audio inputs, without the need for a separate audio mixing desk. You can use the mixer for direct input mixing or audio follow video where the audio automatically crossfades when switching from one input to another. The additional analog audio inputs are great for microphones, audio mixers or music players.

Independent Auxiliary Output

ATEM Production Studio 4K features an independently controllable auxiliary (aux) output that can be fed by any of the switcher’s sources or internal signals. The front panel buttons and LCD make it easy to select sources such as 'clean feeds' that can be output before the downstream keyer and exclude logos and other graphics. The auxiliary output is fantastic for driving large screens and projectors used on stage at live events where you may want an alternative feed to the main program output!

Software Control Panel

For the ultimate in portability you get a beautifully designed ATEM Software Control Panel for both Mac and Windows included free with ATEM Production Studio 4K. ATEM Software Control Panel gives you a full visual switcher control panel and parameter pallets for quick switcher adjustments, plus you can also load graphics into the media pool, perform audio mixing and update settings. The ATEM Software Control Panel is compatible with MACKIE™ protocol control panels for live audio mixing with flying faders! You can work easily in small spaces with full control of all the switcher’s features!

Professional Broadcast Panels

When you want fast direct control of your switcher during extremely busy live production, it's easy to add an optional dedicated hardware ATEM Broadcast Panel to your switcher. ATEM Broadcast Panels feature the highest quality buttons, knobs and controls for the most demanding 24/7 live production environment, giving you hands on control of inputs, transitions, keyers and much more. The ATEM 2 M/E Broadcast Panel connects directly via Ethernet and includes a loop through connection so you can control more than one ATEM Production Studio 4K for a multi M/E switcher!

Extreme Reliability

ATEM Production Studio 4K uses an aviation quality operating system to provide the mission critical reliability that’s demanded in broadcast and live production situations. Unlike cheap computer based switchers that interrupt the video if the computer crashes, ATEM doesn't have this problem because the computer is only the control panel! With ATEM you still have video output so your live event is protected from computer failure. Simply use other control panels or restart your computer without any interruption to the program!

Live Sports

Imagine covering live sports with multiple cameras positioned at all the best angles to capture the action. Live sport is the perfect event for live production switchers because you can capture the excitement of the event and then instantly cut to close ups of the action. You can use ATEM Production Studio 4K to include scorecards and information graphics to help viewers understand what's happening in the chaos of the game! ATEM is the perfect live switcher for all types of sporting events.


There is nothing more exciting than live music where the emotions and energy erupts in combination with the crowd. ATEM Production Studio 4K is perfect for live concerts because you can place your cameras around the stage for wide shots as well as close ups of the musicians. Some of the most legendary music events in history were live concerts and your live production will become a milestone in music history! Live production is the perfect location for exciting programming and the color and energy make fantastic finished programs!

Live Program Production

If you're looking for the fastest way to create interesting television programming then switching it live is the solution. You can set up cameras in a studio and then produce content live so you get exciting programs that have the energy of a live event. Television shows such as cooking shows, chat shows and even instruction shows are fast to produce and much lower cost than shooting scenes and manually editing it later. Live programming is a fantastic solution for children's television shows where the excitement and fun of kids playing naturally in front of a studio audience can be captured live!

Broadcast News

There is no more immediate live event than real time news where the action needs to be covered now and there can't be any delay. Live production is the only way to cover live news because there is simply no time to shoot and edit content. Live events can be covered and broadcast or streamed over the internet for a worldwide audience. Even specialist news such as tech news, sports news, or other specific news coverage can be completed in ATEM Production Studio 4K with the same high production values as the biggest broadcast networks. You have all the graphics power and keys needed to present information professionally so you can keep your viewers excited!


ATEM Production Studio 4K is the perfect solution for creating real time wedding programs that need little post production work and fast turnaround. You can even complete the wedding program at the end of the evening and give your clients the master file to take on their honeymoon! Multi camera wedding production allows romantic crossfades between the wide shots and the close ups. You can capture the emotion of the event in a way that can not be done with a single camera, and if you're connected to a television or projector in the wedding venue you can even position a camera outside to keep people up to date with the wedding party arriving!


ATEM Production Studio 4K is perfect for broadcasting services to giant screens and off site campuses, so that every member of the community can see the minister, choir or congregation, no matter where they are in the world. ATEM Production Studio 4K gives you multiple program outputs and an auxiliary output so you can broadcast live footage of the service on one screen and send lyrics to another while you are recording the final program for future use!

Conference Presentation

Some of the most exciting speeches in the world happen in front of an audience at conferences and attendees often like to keep a copy of the speech. Live production allows you to capture the speaker with multiple camera angles to turn a speech into an exciting television program. You can even position a camera on the audience to capture the crowd reaction to important statements in the presentation. If you're running an SDI connection to the projector in the venue, you can connect the speaker's slide presentation to the ATEM and then connect the aux output to the projector. This means the presenter can show slides to the audience and because it's looped via the switcher you can also cut to the slides to add them into your finished program as required.

HyperDeck Control

Use pre-recorded HyperDeck clips in live programs!

ATEM Switchers work seamlessly with Blackmagic HyperDeck SSD recorders. You can connect up to 4 HyperDecks as sources, just like cameras, to playback pre-recorded clips during live program production! You can see the clips on each HyperDeck, select any clip, cue it, pre-roll, and play it back at any time. You can even create macros to record from an incoming camera source and play it back in slow motion! That's perfect for adding pre-recorded spots or promos, credit rolls, or even slow motion instant re-plays to your live program production!
