This high performance ATEM model also instantly switches to all other HD formats so you can install it today and use it for HD, while being ready for tomorrow. That totally eliminates the cost of moving to Ultra HD in the future because ATEM does it now. This powerful ATEM also includes a larger media pool, 2 native Ultra HD multi viewers, 6 keyers, full DVE, SuperSource and re-sync on each input that all operate in Ultra HD up to 2160p60.
