    SWATEMSCN2/1ME2/HD - Overview

    Introducing ATEM Constellation HD, the world's most powerful HD live production switchers! These incredibly powerful HD switchers are available in 3 great models, including a 1 M/E model with 10 inputs, a 2 M/E model with 20 inputs and a massive 4 M/E model with 40 inputs! Plus each SDI input features a full standards converter! ATEM Constellation includes advanced features such as DVEs, ATEM advanced chroma keyers, media players, multiviews, and SuperSource processors! Plus the built in Fairlight audio mixer includes a compressor, limiter, 6 band parametric EQ and expander on each input. The free ATEM Software Control is included, or you can add a 1 M/E, 2 M/E or 4 M/E ATEM Advanced Panel!

    Seriously Advanced Broadcast Power
    ATEM Constellation HD 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 you 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 the connections for 3G-SDI inputs, 3G-SDI aux outputs, balanced audio and Ethernet for control. The top 4 M/E model even includes RS-422 for serial control and MADI digital audio connections. Even with all this power, ATEM Constellation is extremely quiet with its innovative high efficiency thermal system.

    Designed for Massive Live Events!
    With 3 powerful models, ATEM Constellation HD switchers are ideal for concerts and music festivals because you can place cameras on all areas of the stage for amazing coverage! Even live sports benefit from the huge number of inputs and DVEs let you build multi-layer compositions to cover the action. The fastest way to produce programming is live! With powerful internal graphics and lots of ATEM advanced chroma keyers, you get everything you need for complex program production. ATEM Constellation is also perfect for house of worship programming as it's big enough to allow professional results, but it's very simple to learn so it's easy to train a volunteer crew!

    True Broadcast Style Mix Effects Switching
    ATEM Constellation HD uses a professional "program/preview" style operation, which is the exact same way large broadcasters use live production switchers. This means you are using the same type of switcher used by the television industry. Both the free ATEM Software Control and the optional hardware ATEM Advanced Panels will allow program/preview style switching. This means you can select a source on the preview bus to ensure it's correct before pushing the CUT or AUTO button to switch it on air. This 2 step program/preview process means far fewer mistakes! Program/preview operation means ATEM Constellation is the best solution for training students for a career in broadcast television!
