Blackmagic Design SWATEMPSW1ME4K overview

  • 1Description

The Blackmagic ATEM 1 M/E Production Studio 4K is a live event multi camera production switcher with 10 individual Ultra HD inputs built into a 1RU chassis. Supporting NTSC/PAL/HD and Ultra HD video formats, the switcher connects to a wide range of cameras and sources, delivering a single program stream in SD, HD, or Ultra HD video. All this is done live and in real time with no rendering required. The switcher features a reference video input for synchronizing the switcher to other equipment using tri-level or blackburst sync. Each input also features its own frame synchronizer, which allows you to use cameras that do not feature Genlock as well as input video from computer sources.

The switcher provides 8 video outputs that are always active. It features two SDI and one HDMI Program output, both of which deliver SD/HD/Ultra HD, with one aux SD/HD/Ultra HD output that can deliver a clean program feed without any downstream effects. The switcher also features a down-converted HD output for monitoring on an SDI-equipped HD monitor. Multi view monitoring is 1080i only, over dedicated SDI or HDMI output, and multi view allows you to view the program, preview, and eight live sources at the same time. The switcher features built-in luma and chroma keyers for real time effects and composites in Ultra HD, with 10-bit processing. Two downstream keyers allow you to use two graphics/logos/titles/lower thirds from up to twenty stored graphics in a wide variety of formats.

A built-in twelve-channel audio mixer handles the embedded HDMI and SDI audio from the 10 active video inputs as well as audio from the balanced or unbalanced analog audio inputs to provide you flexibility and creative audio options. Audio output is embedded in the SDI and HDMI stream, as well as available via balanced audio outputs. Either a Mac or PC running the included ATEM Software controls the switcher's operation and settings. For those who like the feel of a physical control panel, available ATEM ME 1 and ME 2 Broadcast Panels, connected via the Ethernet port, also control all the features of the switcher. Illuminated front panel buttons allow you to locally select the aux output, while a 2-inch LCD screen built into the front of the unit allows you to see the aux output for instant confirmation of the correct output.

Video

The ATEM 1 M/E Production Studio 4K switcher supports 4K Ultra HD video (3840 x 2160), which is four times the resolution of Full HD. The video format is set by the user and must be the same across each input, as the switcher cannot scale different input formats to match the project format.
The switcher features ten single link 6G-SDI and one HDMI 4K input, which allows you to connect SD/HD/Ultra HD and computer-based signal to the switcher. However, the HDMI input is shared with one of the SDI inputs, so you can only have a maximum of ten inputs.
The switcher takes reference video in for sync timing, either blackburst or tri-level sync, so that it can interface with other post production equipment.
Each input incorporates its own frame synchronizer, which enables you to use cameras that do not have genlock capability or to input computer sources such as Keynote or PowerPoint Presentations.

Audio

The switcher includes a built-in 12 channel audio mixer that lets you manually mix sources or you can set mixer inputs to "audio follow video" so your audio crossfades as you switch between sources.

Video Outputs

The switcher features two program outputs for the final video, delivering SD/HD/Ultra HD via two 6G-SDI port and one HDMI 4K connector.
Multi view output is available via an SDI or HDMI connector.
The switcher features an SDI aux output that is capable of delivering the program out feed with or without the downstream keyer effects in SD, HD and Ultra HD. Control of the Aux output is by front mounted panel buttons, and built-in 2-inch LCD screen for immediate confirmation of the Aux output.
Multi View Monitoring
The Multi view output features four selectable screen layouts that show eight inputs or six inputs and the two internal media players, plus Preview and Program outputs, on one screen at the same time.

Effects

Transitions
The ATEM 1 M/E Production Studio 4K switcher features four built-in transitions.
  • Cut: 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.
  • Mix: Dissolves from one image to another. You can program a pre-set transition rate, or use the included software control panel or available hardware panels to manually transition from one shot to another.
  • Dip: Is similar to the mix/dissolve, except it first it transitions to a color/graphic or video source and then to the next shot.
  • Wipe patterns: With 18 built-in wipe patterns, you can create over 100 differnet transitions, and the patterns can be inverted or softened and you can customize the color of the border. You can also insert up to three live video streams into the borders.

Key Frameable Transitions
The built-in DVE allows you to create key frame based DVE moves, flying graphics and animated stingers.

Keyers

The switcher features four upstream keyers and a DVE, alowing you to layer live video, title, graphics and animation over live video. You can choose from chroma, luma, linear, and pattern keys at Ultra HD resolution with 10-bit processing.
Two downstream keyers allow you to add graphics, lower thirds, titles and logos for a polished live production.
The DVE allows you to create a picture-in-picture effect.

Control Interface

The switcher features back lit Front panel control buttons for manual control.
The ATEM 4K switcher uses an Ethernet connection to interface with control surfaces such as the optional ATEM 1 M/E and 2 M/E Broadcast Panels.
You can also control the switcher by using the included ATEM Software Control software from a Mac or Windows computer over Ethernet. You can control all production settings of the switcher as well as directly import graphics from your computer into the switcher's media pool.
You set the format for each project you are working on, from SD to HD to Ultra HD, selecting resolution and frame rate. This is accomplished by using either the included software for Mac/PC, or via the ATEM 1 M/E or ATEM 2 M/E Broadcast Panel.
Using the Ethernet port on the switcher allows you to connect control surfaces directly to the switcher or you can control the switcher across a network.
The switcher features a USB port that is used for software updates and to set the switcher's chassis IP address, which can only be done by using a computer running the ATEM Switcher Utility connected to the switcher's USB port.

Rack Mount

The switcher is a single RU in height and has built-in rack mount ears, for mounting in a production road case or in a post production facility.

    Blackmagic Design SWATEMPSW1ME4K reviews

    ATEM 1 M/E Production Studio 4K is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Switcher This is a Great Switcher it just has a learning curve. It would be good if there was some videos on youtube or on there website of all the features. If you can figure out how it works you will be extremely Happy with this unit. Keep in mind SDI is NOT the same as SD. The BNC connection is NOT SD and all the inputs resolutions MUST be the same.
    Date published: 2016-03-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 4K switcher Professional inexpensive compact switcher with 6G SDI inputs / outputs. Handles our 5 multi-camera live production without any problems. Plenty of outputs and AUXs eliminated the use of a whole bunch of distributions hubs/amps. As with all BlackMagic switchers, it can only handle one video format (in our case 1080i 59.94). Really wish they would at least do 2 video formats.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I??m not shure yeat. If I back to buy the product at B&H Last week the ATEM arrived (Brazil) and I installed into our system. I'm use a 3 Sony NX5 and 1 iMac. After install the switcher about 60 minutes later all is good but after that all inputs started to show a noise in the image (like an error) and only restarted the atem the problem is resolve. Sometimes the same problem happened againg and again and I a had to restart again to resolve the problem. I realize after a few tests that the ATEM dosen't show the problem when I no connect in the HDMI input.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a good price This is pretty awesome, does as expected, a little strange to get hooked up to computer but instructions are a huge help. Doesn't come with a standard power cable
    Date published: 2016-07-19
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from ATEM 1 M/E 4K well worth the upgrade. We use our ATEM 1 M/E 4K Production Studio to produce our weekly broadcasts to Youtube and Facebook Live for our church. This switcher is an upgrade from the ATEM Television Studio switcher we used for several years. We love this product so far. It has 10 SDI inputs that run up to 4K. It has 3 program and 3 aux outputs all SDI up to 4K (one program output is HDMI as is one multi-view output). My only real complaint and the very reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it doesn't handle computer inputs very well. Our ATEM Television Studio did real well with the Macs, but not the ATEM 1 M/E 4k. We use 2 Mac computers in our production for video playback and presentation pushed out to a display network throughout our facility. The switcher inputs are so tightly regulated that you MUST make sure the computer is running at the exact resolution and frame rate of the switcher. In our case, I had to install a third party app on each Mac to force the display settings to conform to the 1080i59.94 profile required by the ATEM 1 M/E. In our case, 1080i60 WILL NOT work. Just a heads up if you plan to use this product with Computers.
    Date published: 2017-02-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid This piece of equipment has been solid for every installation we have done. Just know that 1) it does not come with a power cable. and 2) you can NOT scale your outputs differently than what is being input. If you want this feature, Blackmagic has a much larger, more expensive piece of equipment that does this internally.
    Date published: 2016-04-16
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Device... Buyer Beware If all you want to do is switch between cameras this will do, but if you want to use the product as described by Black Magic (to put lower thirds, do live keying, etc) you better think about going a different direction, because it does NOT work in that capacity. BM forums are riddled with unhappy customers using this product. We have returned our Blackmagic Switcher and switched to capture cards and Ustream Producer... -Keying system in Blackmagic Production Studio is terrible and if you read BM forums it has received nothing but complaints (we have better luck with Ustream Producer) -You can only have two media files (images or image sequences) loaded to play. If you want to switch these loaded files, better wait about 5 minutes to load a new 15s image sequence... Summation: This is a SWITCHER that pretends to have the hardware capacity to be a production studio to add elements to a live broadcast.
    Date published: 2015-06-26
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great. I'm using this for a studio install, it works great. I love the built-in screen divider. I wish the power supply was included though.
