    Extend Your SDI and HDMI Cameras to an Amazing 28 Miles with Talkback and Tally!

    Blackmagic Design SWRCONV ATEM Camera Converter
    Extend your SDI and HDMI cameras to an amazing 28 miles with talkback and tally!

    Extend your SDI or HDMI camera for 28 miles!
    Extend your broadcast SDI or consumer HDMI camera using low cost optical fiber! Imagine connecting to cameras at remote locations on racing tracks, live sporting venues or even massive golf courses! Now with ATEM Camera Converter you can have more cameras closer to the action for the most amazing shots in live production! ATEM Camera Converter not only converts your camera to optical fiber, but it also includes talkback, external microphone input, program return feed, tally and built in battery power source! Now you can place cameras in multiple locations miles away from your switcher while keeping full broadcast HD video quality!

    Professional Multi-Camera Production
    ATEM Camera Converter gives you everything you need for live production in a single converter. Connect your camera to the SDI or HDMI inputs to convert to optical fiber, and connect your switcher program feed to the optical fiber input to convert to SDI and HDMI for monitoring. The SDI and HDMI monitoring outputs can be switched between your camera input or optical fiber input! Professional local microphone inputs are included. ATEM Camera Converter also includes an internal battery for remote use when your cameras are located far away from power sources, as well as built in talkback and tally!

    Optical Fiber Link
    Optical fiber is the perfect connection because it's used in computer networking and is common, affordable and easy to purchase! ATEM Camera Converter uses a single mode optical fiber pair with LC type connectors, so you get the freedom to connect your cameras up to 147,000 feet or 45KM from your switcher!

    Includes Talkback
    In live production it's critical for your camera operators to talk to the switcher operator so you can work as a team! ATEM Camera Converter includes talkback using low cost PC headsets or iPhone-compatible headphones, so each camera can communicate with the director at the switcher.

    Broadcast & Consumer Connections
    ATEM Camera Converter connects to both HDMI and SDI video cameras! Video and audio are embedded into the optical fiber output, and microphone inputs are included for the ultimate in audio flexibility. That's perfect when you need higher quality or wireless microphones on your cameras!

    Perfect For All Types Of Events!
    ATEM Camera Converter uses optical fiber for its connection, so you get long distances combined with full uncompressed HD video quality. This lets you move your cameras farther away from your switcher and closer to the action! Imagine placing a camera at the end of drag racing strip, at the starting gate of a horse race, or even at the far end of a golf course! Even low cost consumer HD cameras look amazing when used with ATEM Camera Converter! ATEM Camera Converter is perfect for concerts, sporting events or even lecture theaters, houses of worship, surveillance, or any remote camera location!

    Ultra Tough Design
    ATEM Camera Converter is designed tough enough for the rigors of life on the road! For incredible strength, ATEM Camera Converter is machined from a solid billet of aircraft-grade aluminum with recessed connectors and a button control panel. This results in an incredibly strong design that can handle bumps and knocks without breaking. ATEM Camera Converter includes a side mounted clip, so you can hang it from your belt for maxiumum portability, then simply plug in your headset, camera and optical link! The built in button pad gives you control over power, microphone level, talkback and video, as well as battery indicators. You even get a USB port for software updates!

    Belt Clip or Camera Mount
    When you need to move around, ATEM Camera Converter is
    perfect because it moves with you! With an integrated belt clip, you can simply snap it onto your belt, connect the cables, and move around with ease.

    Built in Tally
    Now you can clearly see when your cameras are "on air"! ATEM Camera Converter uses an open standard tally packet in the SDI output on any ATEM switcher to illuminate 2 built in tally LEDs!

    Battery or AC Powered
    ATEM Camera Converter includes a standard 12 volt input that supports operation up to 30 volt DC. That let's you use a wide range of power sources or even a car battery!

    Designed for Live Production
    Now you can eliminate multiple boxes hanging off your camera that limit your mobility, because ATEM Camera Converter includes everything you need for operating a camera in a live production. You get a simple solution that's really 4 converters in one! The built in keyboard is located on the top, so it's easy to adjust. ATEM Camera Converter even adjusts the microphone audio level smoothly, so when adjusted on air you won't notice the level change! ATEM Camera Converter is fully bi-directional, so you can connect both your camera and a return program feed to the switcher at the same time!

    Broadcast Quality
    ATEM Camera Converter might be affordable, but it's got full broadcast quality with 10-bit video data paths, HD-SDI video technology and support for optical fiber SDI with a high quality laser driver for long distance connections. You get a solid design that looks great, but protects the connectors and keyboard from damage during live production use. Only ATEM Camera Converter gives you the best video technology available, so you get incredible quality HD video to your switcher for a true broadcast production standard

    Comments about Blackmagic Design SWRCONV ATEM Camera Converter:

    The ATEM camera converters allow our small production company to go after jobs we couldn't afford to look at before. Being able to roll out quickly in environments like sports stadiums and large outdoor venues has opened the door to new business for us. Compatibility with existing fiber networks is a tremendous plus too!

    Service and delivery comments:

    Fast service - Markertek corrected a shipping issue at their own expense. Always our 1st choice

    Comments about Blackmagic Design SWRCONV ATEM Camera Converter:

    Ditch your copper. Switch to fiber.

    If you've run HDSDI, then you've run in to the 300' limits, especially if you're doing event work or sports. Triax is expensive, RG-59 runs out of length too quick. Fiber can go forever, and is much lighter weight. Even 'expensive' tactical grade fiber is relatively cheap, especially from Markertek.

    With these converters, you can send camera video to the truck, and return video back to your ops for graphics alignment and reference. Features are dead simple to use, and while the built in headset functionality is a great feature, it's also a bit of a limitation for integration into existing coms systems.

    This converter is not directly compatible with wet 2-wire systems. You'll need to convert to four-wire and attenuate to match the input levels in each direction.

    You can run your fiber with one of these at each end, or set up with BMD's four-way head unit.

    For those of you coming from full size trucks, you're not going to get CCU or Power. These are better suited for medium format, flypack type rigs.

    We pair these wit BMD switchers for integrated tally, or with our other switchers (Tricaster, for example) to run long distances without even the threat of a dropped frame.

    A great product at a fraction of the price of other fiber systems. No CCU, no power, and the coms integration is not great. But if you're building a new rig or upgrading a coax-based pack, these will make your life easier and more functional, quickly and inexpensively.

        This is the simplest way to create a HD multi-camera operation. It has all the tools in a cost effective package and easily interfaces with all the field switchers we use.
