Two control panels have been added to Blackmagic's catalogue

Designed to work with all Atem switchers and featuring a traditional broadcast workflow, Blackmagic Design has created two control panels. Featuring up to four M/Es, 24 separate LCDs for custom button labels, four separate system control LCDs and four T‑bar fader controls, the new panel design can be adopted for both desktop use or inset mounting as a flat control surface.

Incorporating dedicated controls for the largest Atem switchers, the Atem 2 M/E Advanced Panels feature two M/E rows with 20 input buttons and two independent system control LCDs for each row. Each row includes an independent select bus and can control up to four M/Es in larger switchers, while both rows and all input buttons include LCDs for custom labelling. With four M/E rows with 40 input buttons per row and four independent system control LCDs for each row, the larger 4 M/E model matches the features on the Atem Constellation switcher. Atem Constellation has separate program and preview busses providing a simpler source switch, while a preview bus selection can be accessed on the aux output or multi view.

Standard SMPTE wipes are included, which can promote edge softening for smooth transitions rather than simple cross dissolves. The joystick has been included to position the DVE for custom picture-in-picture effects, while the soft knobs and menus on the LCD can be used to adjust the DVE position, size and other DVE features, such as lighting and drop shadow effects. The DVE can be set up to fly graphics into frame or select any of the pre-programed push and squeeze transitions. T-bar control allows transitions to ride as part of the live performance. Bypassing the need to work from a separate computer, built-in macros have been added to record custom macros for triggering to playback.
