Is this the right switcher to use for video ...

Is this the right switcher to use for video distribution throughout a building? Not live stream over internet, but basically image magnification of camera shots?
Asked by: Sierra
The Blackmagic Design ATEM 2 M/E Constellation HD Live Production Switcher (1 RU) can function as a routing hub with 20 SDI inputs and 12 SDI outputs. A 16-camera multi-view output is also provided to have an overall view of the cameras in use. Suppose you have the idea of the destination displays in a building switching between multiple sources. In that case, an encoder or modulator running to existing lines of coax in a building that allows direct plugging to television over the antenna port or the use of a decoder is done.

The buttons on the front of the device control M/E 1. Is there any way to get them to control M/E 2?

The front panel controls 1ME of the Blackmagic Design ATEM 2 M/E Constellation HD Live Production Switcher. However, to control all ME2 functions you will need to have a computer connected using Black Magic's free software for control.

I need my 1080i cameras to look good all the way through the chain. BM never put the effort into correcting the problem on the mini HDMI versions. Is there any solution with this model? How good do 1080i signals look at the output?
Asked by: Doug
Conversion of 1080i to 1080p is subjective. The best way to preserve 1080i is to keep it that way throughout.

So are all of the sdi outputs customizable like the sdi aux output on the atem tv studio hd? Or are they all program feeds?
Asked by: Theodore
To be clear. All of the Constllation outputs may be set to any video source independently. The audio on each will always be program audio. The ATEM TV Studio Outputs are all Program video and audio with the exception of the AUX output which may be any video source with program audio.
