When you’re creating a live program from multiple cameras, it’s important to be able to see all of the video sources at the same time. The multiview output lets you see up to 8 channels of video on a single HDMI television or SDI monitor! You can see all of your cameras, tally indicators, graphics, preview and final program output all on the same display at the same time. Customize labels, see audio meters, set safe area markers, and more! Connect any standard TV to get perfect multi camera monitoring in any location!

Built in 2D DVE
Amazing DVE transitions and picture in picture effects!

You also get 17 DVE powered transitions that you can use to squeeze and swoosh between sources, or to create graphic wipe transitions with your own graphics!
Realtime two way communication with your cameras!
ATEM Television Studio features built in talkback that takes advantage of rarely used SDI channels 15 and 16 to send talkback audio to and from the camera. There's also headset connections on the front panel for talking to and listening from cameras that support SDI talkback. The talkback from the camera is embedded in the SDI video feed from the camera to the switcher. If you connect the talkback SDI outputs of the switcher back to the camera, then the director’s talkback audio is sent to the cameras along with tally and camera control. The SDI outputs feature talkback to cameras with mix minus. This lets you send program audio back to an interviewee so they hear everything except themselves, and won’t be distracted by hearing a delayed audio echo.

The built in media pool stores broadcast quality RGBA graphics and animations that can be played back instantly by the 2 media players.
