The popularity of 8K continues to rise and Blackmagic Design’s ATEM Constellation 8K switcher is packed with features that make it a powerful 8K switcher.
Right out of the box users will notice the 40 12G-SDI inputs, 24 customizable 12G-SDI aux outputs, 4 mixing effects, 16 keyers, 4 multiviewers, analog ins and outs, and a talkback port on the rear of the switcher. On the front of the device is a large LCD screen display where users can directly control the switcher and view recordings. These key features will transform any production need, and as if the ATEM Constellation 8K switcher weren’t a powerful unit on its own, users can add a Hyperdeck Extreme Control to enable traditional broadcast deck controls with the switcher.
40 independent 12G-SDI inputs in HD and Ultra HD
- These inputs transform into 10 Quadlink 12G-SDI 8K inputs when 8K is enabled
