Blackmagic Design Announces New ATEM Constellation 8K posted: 18/04/2019

Powerful 8K switcher with 8K DVE, standards converted 8K inputs, 8K SuperSource, 8K chroma key and 8K MultiView!

Blackmagic Design announced ATEM Constellation 8K a major new high end live production switcher with 8K capability that lets customers create content for the next generation of the television industry. ATEM Constellation 8K is available immediately from Blackmagic Design

resellers worldwide for US$9,995.

The new ATEM Constellation 8K is an Ultra HD live production switcher with so many

features, that customers can combine them all to make an incredibly powerful 8K switcher.

Customers get 4 M/Es, 40 x 12G-SDI inputs, 24 x 12G-SDI aux outputs, 4 DVEs, 16

Keyers, 4 media players, 4 multi viewers, 2 SuperSource and standards conversion on

every SDI input. Then when switched to 8K, all these features combine to make a powerful

8K switcher.

ATEM Constellation 8K features a compact 2RU rack mount design with a built in control

panel. This allows operation of the switcher, critical during setup or for emergency use.

Also included is a large LCD so customers can see program output and change switcher

settings via on screen menus. Although only 2RU size, the rear of the switcher has a

massive 40 x 12G-SDI inputs, 24 x 12G-SDI aux outputs, plus balanced audio, Ethernet,

RS-422 control and MADI digital audio extra inputs to the internal Fairlight audio mixer.

With a built in control panel, customers can simply walk up and take full control of ATEM

Constellation at any time. Customers get incredible power with both PGM/PVW or cut-bus

style operation. The buttons are the same premium type used on full sized panels, and

allow control of transitions, upstream/downstream keyers, media players and fade to black.

But users are never limited, as the LCD menus also allow every single operational feature

of the switcher to be accessed.

Customers get 40 independent 12G-SDI inputs, with each input featuring its own

dedicated up and cross converter. That means it's possible to convert 1080p and Ultra HD

sources to stunning 8K to use them in their 8K programs. When used in HD or Ultra HD,

customers can connect up to 40 different sources in all formats up to 2160p60. When

running 8K formats, customers can connect 10 Quad Link 12G-SDI 8K sources in all

formats up to 4320p60.

ATEM Constellation 8K features 24 independently routable 12G-SDI outputs that can be

fully customized. All of these outputs are similar to aux outputs, however theyre more

powerful because customers can route any external SDI input and all internal sources to

any of these 12G-SDI outputs. All 12G-SDI outputs contain embedded program audio,

plus customers get mix minus support, RP-188 embedded timecode, SDI camera control,

tally and talkback.

The built in multi views let customers monitor multiple sources in a single monitor.

Customers get 4 independent multiview outputs that can each be individually customized

or transformed into a single full resolution 8K multiview when customers switch to 8K. Plus

all external inputs and all internal sources can be routed to any view. Plus each multiview

can be independently set to 4, 7, 10, 13 or 16 simultaneous views. Each view also has on

screen status including a custom label, VU meters and tally.

ATEM Constellation 8K includes a wide range of broadcast quality 8K native transitions

such as mix, dip, wipe, and more. All transitions can be customized by adjusting

parameters such as their duration, border color, border width, position and direction.

Transitions are even fully 8K native. Customers also get exciting DVE transitions, perfect

for graphic wipes and even stingers when used with the internal media players.

To keep crews working as a single creative team, ATEM Constellation 8K features built in

talkback. Talkback supports a front 5 pin XLR headset connector, as well as a rear RJ12

talkback expansion connector for interfacing with industry standard systems such as

ClearCom or RTS. Customers get full talkback control including program and engineering

loops, sidetone control for hearing the headset mic into the headphones and program mix.

ATEM Constellation also supports SDI talkback that uses SDI channels 15 and 16 for 2-

way communication with Blackmagic Design cameras. Customers can even use channels

13 and 14 for engineering talkback.

The built in media pool stores broadcast quality RGBA graphics and animations that can

be played back instantly by the two media players. For the highest quality, the media pool

can hold up to 24 full resolution 8K stills, or 64 Ultra HD or HD stills. Motion graphics clips

for use in animations and stingers can be up to 100 8K RGBA frames, 400 frames in Ultra

HD or a massive 1,600 frames in 1080HD.

For news or virtual set work, ATEM Constellation 8K is the perfect choice as it features 16

ATEM Advanced Keyers for high quality chroma or luminance keying. The chroma keyer is

incredibly powerful and features a color picker to sample background colors for automatic

generation of the key parameters. Customers get precise controls for edge and flare, and

there is even a foreground color corrector so customers can match the look of the

foreground layer to the background layer making seamless compositions possible. The

keyer can also be used for pattern and DVE keying allowing incredible versatility. Then

when customers switch to 8K, customers still get four independent full resolution 8K ATEM

Advanced Keyers.

ATEM Constellation 8K Features

HD and Ultra HD switcher can be switched to 8K.

Advanced design with built in front panel controls.

Large 40 standards converted 12G-SDI inputs.

24 customizable 12G-SDI outputs.
