Comprehensive 10-in/6-out Video Mixer

Looking to punch up your content with video switching, controls, effects, and audio tools all in one box? The Blackmagic Design ATEM 1 M/E Constellation HD is a comprehensive multimedia switcher. It makes quick work of organizing broadcasts and streams via BMD’s proven ATEM platform. This 10-in/6-out video mixer packs a spread of connectivity options. There’s 10 3G-SDI inputs with automatic standard conversion, 6 3G-SDI outputs, USB connectivity, audio mix controls, streaming via Ethernet or USB, and much more. Beyond video, the ATEM 1 M/E Constellation HD is primed for multimedia work with green screen and picture-on-picture composition tools, plus a Fairlight audio mixer with effects. The ATEM’s integrated control panel gives immediate access to all features; workflows can be customized and controlled via the ATEM Control App for Mac or PC. What’s more, this powerful device is approachable and simple enough to operate that even volunteer crews can learn the ropes with some initial guidance. Pro-level broadcasting and production are realities anytime and anywhere with the ATEM 1 M/E Constellation HD!

Limitless media potential

With up to 10 3G-SDI inputs for cameras and other media, this switcher can seamlessly blend close cams, wide shots, computer displays, music, green screens, and more! Each input features its own dedicated converter that can turn any 1080p source to the switcher’s standard. Essentially, each input can receive a different television standard and output a single unified standard — a feature that busy Sweetwater content producers and directors find saves tremendous time! Outputs are equally robust with program audio, RP-188 timecode, SDI camera control, tally, and talkback output for all SDI channels. And no matter how much I/O you use, the ATEM 1 M/E Constellation HD offers full control directly from the front panel’s 2.2-inch LCD monitor and LED buttons. You can also link up with ATEM Software Control app for Mac or Windows via Ethernet or USB. ATEM Software allows nearly limitless workflow customization in addition to switcher control, media uploads, audio mixing, camera control, and more.

Control livestreams with software or hardware

With Blackmagic ATEM gear, livestreaming is smooth and efficient. The device features a built-in hardware streaming engine with output over Ethernet or USB-C. Computer software essentially detects the ATEM’s output as a single webcam signal which lets the mixer stream via Facebook, YouTube, and other major platforms (as well as work with common streaming software such as Open Broadcaster and XSplit Broadcaster). Those looking for even more hardware power can expand the ATEM 1 M/E Constellation HD’s feature set by adding an ATEM Advanced Panel for professional switching or an ATEM Camera Control Panel for more camera control (both sold separately). Savvy developers will also be pleased to know there’s a free ATEM software development kit available for building your own automation control solutions!

Professional workflow

ATEM Constellation HD switchers use the “program/preview” operation style that’s favored by professional newsrooms and broadcasters. The “Program/preview” is essentially a safety mechanism that prevents onscreen mishaps. Selecting any source will cue a preview bus, so you can verify a selected feed is what should be on-air. With this pro-style switching, mistakes tend to become few and far in between. It’s a great way to expose students and volunteers to professional video workflow!

All about that audio — built-in mixer, EQ, compressor, limiter, and more

The Blackmagic Design ATEM 1 M/E Constellation HD offers ample audio connections with two balanced 1/4-inch inputs and an endless array of ways to mix and send audio. The ATEM 1 M/E Constellation HD also incorporates a Fairlight audio mixer for full audio control and seamless mixing between sources. Each input channel sports extensive controls including 6-band EQ, a robust compressor, a limiter, a noise gate, full stereo panning, and more. There’s also convenient level and peak metering for efficient sound monitoring with a visual reference.

Integrated talkback

When it’s showtime, communication is essential. The ATEM 1 M/E Constellation HD features integrated talkback connectors with 5-pin XLR in/out for straightforward headset connection. There’s also an RJ12 connector on the rear panel for interfacing with popular professional talkback systems including ClearCom and RTS. Via the ATEM or ATEM control software, you get full talkback control including program and engineering loops, and sidetone control for hearing a headset mic through the program mix. ATEM Constellation HD also supports SDI talkback for 2-way communication with Blackmagic Design cameras. It’s even possible to mix talkback audio directly into the program mix for voiceovers.

Fast, accurate virtual sets with chroma keying

When it comes to crafting virtual sets, ATEM is sure to impress! The 1 M/E Constellation model comes packed with four advanced chroma keyers. The chroma keyer includes a color picker that quickly samples a background color and automatically generates key parameters for a tidy professional virtual set. You also get precise controls for edge and flare, plus a foreground color corrector for matching other layers to the background. Keyers can also be used for picture-in-picture layers or transition effects with blend and timing options; control border color, width, position, and direction. Branded broadcasts are also a breeze; there’s a media pool for storing graphics, stills, branding, and more for live recall. As a bonus, the ATEM’s media pool, keyer, and DVE tools appear as additional input sources and will never drain your SDI inputs.
