Features

Broadcast-Quality Transitions

On the Blackmagic Design ATEM 4 M/E Constellation HD Live Production Switcher (2 RU) you will find a wide range of native broadcast-quality transitions, like mix, dip, wipe, and many more. All transitions can be customized in the system control menus with adjustments for border colour, border width, position, direction, and a lot more. Also features a powerful digital video effects processor for DVE transitions.
This enables you to freeze a picture offscreen, and then reveal a new video under it.

Built-In DVE

The ATEM Constellation features two independent DVEs that let you reposition graphics and create picture-in-picture compositions. You get amazing quality, and the DVE supports the position, resize, and scale, all in real-time. The DVE lets you create professional picture-in-picture effects with customizable 3D borders, shadows, and lighting. DVRs can also be used to create amazing DVE transitions with squeeze and swoosh effects for adding excitement to your programming. You can even combine DVE transitions with custom graphics to create your own graphic wipe transitions. The 4 M/E model includes SuperSource processors for eight DVEs, effectively creating a total of 12 DVEs.

SuperSource

The Blackmagic Design ATEM 4 M/E Constellation HD Live Production Switcher (2 RU) also features a powerful SuperSource multiplayer processor with four extra DVE layers plus a background layer. SuperSource is just like having an extra multi-layer VFX switcher built-in. SuperSource is perfect for doing picture-in-picture displays for interviews because you can set up the effect while keeping the main DVEs free for other tasks.

Multiview

Configurable to 16, 13, 10, 7, or 4 up view. It includes monitoring of program, preview, inputs, media players, DSK, and clean feed with optional labels and audio meters. The 4 M/E model features two multiview outputs.

Professional Broadcast Talkback

To keep crews working as a single creative team, ATEM Constellation features built-in talkback. Talkback supports a 5-pin XLR headset connector, plus a rear-mounted RJ12 connector for interfacing with industry-standard talkback systems such as ClearCom or RTS. You get full talkback control, including program and engineering loops, sidetone control for hearing the headset mic into the headphones, and program mix. ATEM Constellation HD also supports SDI talkback that uses SDI channels 15 and 16 for 2-way communication with Blackmagic Design cameras. You can even use channels 13 and 14 for engineering talkback. It's even possible to mix the talkback mic into the program audio for voiceovers.

Media Pool

With broadcast quality, RGBA graphics and animations stored in the built-in media pool can be played back instantly by the two or four media players. The Blackmagic Constellation 4 M/E model is capable of holding 40 still and 1200 frame animations.

Chroma Keyers

The Blackmagic Design ATEM 4 M/E Constellation HD Live Production Switcher (2 RU) is perfect for news or virtual set work, ATEM Constellation HD is perfect as it features lots of ATEM advanced keyers for high-quality chroma or luminance keying. The chroma keyer is incredibly powerful and features a colour picker to sample background colours for automatic generation of the key parameters. You get precise controls for edge and flare, and there is even a foreground colour corrector so you can match the "look" of the foreground layer to the background layer making seamless compositions possible.

Upstream Chroma Keyers

Having four upstream chroma keyers per M/E row you have the perfect solution for building your virtual sets.
External image processors can be used for virtual sets, or you can even build a fixed camera virtual set by loading pre-rendered still image backgrounds from the media players and media pool.

Multi-Rate 3G-SDI Input

With the ability to use up to 20 multi-rate 3G-SDI input connections, the Blackmagic ATEM Constellation HD is compatible with all types of HD video sources. You can connect equipment in all HD television standards, including 720p, 1080i, and 1080p formats.
Embedded audio, as well as audio mixing, is possible with SDI inputs, as well as mixing audio from all video inputs. Plus, the program outputs include talkback, tally, and camera control information.

Audio

The Blackmagic Design ATEM 4 M/E Constellation HD Live Production Switcher (2 RU) is designed to fully embrace live professional audio production. All SDI inputs are connected to a built-in Fairlight audio mixer that features a 6-band parametric EQ, compressor, limiter, noise gate, and expander on each input.

ATEM Software Control Panel

The ATEM Software Control Panel gives you total control over your switcher and is included for free. The ATEM Software Control Panel features a beautifully designed interface with a visual switcher and parameter palettes for making quick adjustments. Multiple users can connect to the switcher via Ethernet, and all work on different parts of the event at the same time. The ATEM Software Control also lets you access camera control, audio mixing, media, macro programming, and even control of HyperDeck disk recorders.
