    SWATEMSCN2/2ME2/4K - Overview

    The Blackmagic Design ATEM 2 M/E Constellation 4K is a powerful 2 M/E Ultra HD live production switcher. It features 20 standards converted 12G-SDI inputs, 12x 12G-SDI aux outputs, 2 DVEs, 8 ATEM Advanced Keyers, 2 multiviews, media players, USB webcam output and a SuperSource for a total of 6 DVEs. You even get built in talkback and a professional 48 channel Fairlight audio mixer with EQ and dynamics!

    ATEM Constellation switchers feature a compact rack mount design with a built in control panel. This allows operation of the switcher, critical during setup or for emergency use. Also included is a large LCD so customers can see program output and change switcher settings via on screen menus. The compact design is perfect for portable live production, with the rear of the switcher including connections for 12G-SDI inputs, aux outputs, balanced audio and Ethernet for control.

    The ATEM Constellation family has a massive number of fully independent outputs. These SDI outputs are very powerful because customers can independently route any SDI input or any internal source to each SDI output. That's perfect for running independent feeds to stage screens, master recorders and streaming processors. Or use the SDI outputs for ISO recorders, where each deck will get a resynchronized switcher input with matching timecode. All SDI outputs contain program audio, RP-188 timecode, SDI camera control, tally and talkback.

    For live streaming, the USB-C connection on ATEM Constellation operates as a webcam source. The software is tricked into thinking the ATEM Constellation is a common webcam, but it's really a live production switcher! That guarantees full compatibility with any video software in full resolution 1080HD quality.
