ATEM Production Studio 4K video switcher enables churches to connect up to eight SD, HD, or Ultra HD video cameras, disk recorders, and computers for flexible live production. Its 6G-SDI and HDMI 4K video connections handle Ultra HD live production, and churches can connect all cameras using a single cable for a simplified workflow. An HD down converted HD-SDI program output is available when the switcher is operating in Ultra HD formats, but a regular HD program feed is required.
The switcher's progressive frame rates enable churches to work in 1080p 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 50, and 59.94 progressive video formats. This means the switcher connects to an even wider range of HD devices, including low-cost consumer HDMI and professional SDI cameras, routers, and media playout servers.
The switcher includes the ATEM Software Control Panel for both Mac and Windows, which provides control of transitions, keyers, built-in audio mixer, and switcher settings from a laptop or desktop computer.

Churches can further save on space and costs with built-in multi-view monitoring, which shows all sources on a single SDI monitor or HDMI TV instead of multiple video monitors. Because the multi-view output is down-converted to HD, churches can still use commonly available HD monitors or televisions. Multi-view includes independent views for program, preview, and eight switcher sources.
ATEM Production Studio 4K includes the same high-quality transitions found on professional switchers, but now the transitions operate in Ultra HD. Churches have a choice of mix, dip, and wipe effects, with full control of the transition type, pattern, length, and more. Two built-in media players store up to 20 full resolution Ultra HD still frames with key and fill.
The switcher includes a Photoshop plug in that enables direct download graphics and titles. For seamless multi-layering, the switcher includes one upstream keyer, with independent chroma, pattern, shaped, and linear keying as well as two downstream keyers. Churches can also save and restore switcher states in three ways: save and restore the entire switcher state, save only a piece to restore, or load a piece of an entire saved state.
A built-in audio mixer provides embedded HDMI and SDI audio from cameras and external audio from the analog XLR and HiFi audio inputs. Churches can use the mixer in direct input mixing or in audio-follow-video, where the audio from each camera will automatically be cross faded while switching. The analog audio inputs are ideal for microphones, audio mixers, or music players.
ATEM Production Studio 4K is suited for broadcasting services to giant screens and satellite campuses. The multiple program outputs and an auxiliary output can broadcast live footage of the service on one screen and send lyrics to another while recording the final program for satellite campuses or future use.
