ATEM Production Studio 4K switchers have an amazing choice of transitions including Cut, Mix, Dip and Wipe patterns. The advanced 1 M/E and 2 M/E models also give you key frame based DVE moves, flying graphics and animated stingers!
Every transition is instantly available and you get full control of the transition type, pattern, length and more. With so many creative options you can always find the perfect 'on air' style, so there's no limit to the combination of exciting effects you can create!
The cut transition is the most simple and widely used of all transitions and you will use it continuously! When you press the cut button, ATEM instantly changes from current program source to the preview source precisely at the moment you hit the button. Cuts can be performed by directly selecting sources on the program bus or more commonly by pressing the cut button to transition to the next source lined up on the preview bus. Cut is easily the most popular transition!
One of the most elegant transitions in live production is the dissolve or mix transition. Gradually transitioning from one source to the next by creating a smooth blend between the sources brings out the emotion in your production. You can simply press the auto transition button to automatically trigger a mix between shots at a pre-set transition rate. You can use the t-bar to manually blend the transition for the perfect live mix.
Similar to mix transitions, a dip transition is a gradual blend from source to source however, the transition dips to an intermediate third source before completing the transition to the next shot. You can choose to dip to any color, a graphic from the media players or even a live video source. Use black or white for the intermediate source for incredible creativity! For sponsored live productions like sports events, use dip transitions to flash up a sponsor's logos during the broadcast!
ATEM Production switchers have 18 built in wipe patterns, which let you create over 100 different styles of wipe transitions! You can use circles, diamonds, squares and more to transition from one source to the another as you gradually expand the shape to reveal the next source. Patterns can be inverted, softened or have customized colored borders. You can also insert live video into borders creating wipe pattern transitions that include three live video streams at the same time!
The advanced ATEM 1 M/E and 2 M/E Production Studio 4K models have a powerful built in Digital Video Effects processor or DVE. You can push, spin, squeeze and swoosh your live video from one camera to the next with incredible built in DVE transitions. DVE transitions can be flip flopped and reversed giving you even more transition options. You get over 35 exciting DVE preprogramed moves to choose from. Using the DVE for transitions will increase the production value on any live production!
When you want to combine sponsor logos with transitions during a live production, graphic transitions are the perfect solution! Use the DVE to create amazing flying graphic effects and logo wipe transitions. You can create high resolution logos in Photoshop™ using the included plug-in to load directly into the ATEM media pool. Photoshop graphics with premultiplied keys are perfect for smooth flying logos in the highest quality, as your logo moves across the screen, the shot transitions with a hidden wipe under the flying graphic!
You can create exciting eye popping Stinger transitions by combining live video with animated graphics and sound effects. When you trigger a Stinger, your animation is instantly played back from a media player and keys over the live video as it wipes to the next shot. You also get simultaneously mixed sound effects with the live program output. Stingers are widely used for live sports broadcasts as great transitions to instant replays and back to the live action!
Upstream Keyers. Amazing multi layer live action
All ATEM Production Studio 4K switchers include powerful upstream keying for amazing broadcast effects! Layer live video, titles, graphics and animation over live video or graphic backgrounds with incredible quality using chroma, luma, linear and pattern keying. You get 4 built in upstream keyers and a DVE in the ATEM 1M/E Production Studio 4K so you can create mind blowing broadcast multi layer effects for your production.
Luma keys are sometimes known as a self key because the same video source is used for cutting the key and overlaying the video image. You can do this with live video from a camera, prerecorded video from a HyperDeck or graphics loaded in the media pool. Luma keys work the best with high contrast images like white elements on a black background, so that you can use the contrast to cut the black background and replace it with live video or broadcast graphics.
Get incredibly clean, high quality results with Linear keying by using two separate sources for the fill and the key to create one video image! The fill signal contains video to be stacked over the background, while the key signal contains a grayscale mask to cut out or mask the area to be filled. Fill and key signals can be graphics from the media pool, live motion video, or video and key from an external character generator or graphics system.
Used every day for TV weather forecasts, chroma keys are a very powerful way of combining live images together in real-time, cleanly in high quality! The presenter stands in front of typically a green or blue background, and the chroma keyer will remove only that color and combine it with another image such as prerecorded video or graphic. ATEM Switchers include multiple keyers so you can simultaneously combine multiple live, prerecorded, graphic and chroma key elements in real-time.
Create amazing transitions with the pattern key! You can use any one of the 18 built in wipe patterns to combine live images or graphics with geometric shapes. The pattern keyer gives you full pattern control including softness, symmetry, size and position completely independent of the transition block. That means you can use pattern keys to create picture in picture effects that can be transitioned to as easily as any live camera source, and you don't need to tie up your DVE!
Downstream Keyers. Add bugs, logos and lower thirds
All ATEM switchers feature two downstream keyers so you can insert high quality graphics like logos, bugs and titles over the live 'on air' program output. Downstream keyers are the last layers of keying so they overlay all video switched to the main program. You can also easily bypass the downstream keyers by using the clean feed aux outputs. This means you can record the clean feed as your master and use the downstream keyers for overlays that you only want on air.
Perfect for live breaking news production, the DVE lets you create live crosses from the studio to the excitement on location. Create picture in picture effects with both the studio host and location reporter combined as one video output. The high quality DVE gives you control of size, position, rotation and features 3D borders, drop shadows and lighting! You can save customized DVE positions and automatically trigger the picture to animate full screen or zoom as the live interview concludes.
ATEM's built in audio mixer is incredibly powerful and easy to use! Open the audio mixer control tab on your Mac or PC and you get complete multi track mixing control with level meters! You can direct camera and external audio with precision level and balance adjustments, enable and disable channels or activate audio follow video mode instantly. You can also connect to Mackie™ standard USB audio mixer panels, giving you hardware feedback and feel of flying faders and meter displays.
The advanced ATEM 2 M/E Production Studio 4K features an amazing built in SuperSource layering switcher! In addition to 2 full M/E's, keyers and DVE, you get an additional 4 independent DVE channels so you can resize and position live cameras, video replays, broadcast graphics and more. SuperSource is like having an additional multi layer VFX switcher built in! Imagine being able to take a satellite video feed from 4 different locations to create multi camera interviews or a picture in picture live broadcast!

Multi view makes it easy to see your cameras, graphics, preview and program outputs on single screen. That means you don't need lots of monitors to see all your individual cameras!

The perfect program end!
Ideal for the start and end of your production or fading down for commercial breaks, fade to black (FTB) is the absolute last layer of the switcher and ensures all the layers are faded down together. Once the program output has been faded to black, the FTB button will flash red until it is pressed again. Selecting fade to black again will then fade up from black at the same rate. With a dedicated fade to black button, you can be sure all sources are faded cleanly in sync for the perfect program end!
Control levels, balance and more!

You can set the audio to auto fade up and down as the switcher sources are changed and the mixed audio is then embedded into all video outputs!
