The ATEM Camera Control Panel is a compact remote camera control unit designed to control up to four different URSA Broadcast, URSA Mini, Blackmagic Studio or Blackmagic Micro Studio cameras. The control panel features traditional broadcast style controls and adjustments so a single person can monitor and adjust a wide range of technical parameters such as black levels, gain, colour balance, shutter speed and more. This leaves your camera operators free to focus on the more creative aspects of live production such as framing and composition. Unlike traditional CCU controllers, which have to be installed into a desk, the ATEM Camera Control Panel has been designed to be portable so it can simply be placed on any desktop or bolted down so it can be mounted in a slide out rack shelf. The controls are arranged in a familiar and logical layout, making it perfect for both experienced and new operators. Plus, it works with all ATEM switcher models

Control Four Cameras

One person can control 4 cameras

When working on live multi camera programs, it’s important to make sure all of the cameras are properly balanced and set up correctly so that you get consistent video from every angle. The ATEM Camera Control Panel features 4 camera controllers in one panel. Each camera controller includes a large LCD screen with soft buttons and knobs at the top of the panel, and a full set of professional controls below, on the main body of the panel.

Scene and Camera Controls

The top section lets you save and recall scene presets so you can quickly adjust cameras based on changes in the scene such as lighting. This section also includes controls for adjusting master gain, white balancing the camera and changing the camera’s shutter speed.

  • White Balance
    Quickly set and adjust white balance
  • Load Scenes
    Save and recall scene presets
  • Master Gain
    Boost sensitivity of sensor in low light or when more depth of field is needed
  • Shutter Speed

  • Bars

Gain and Pedestal Controls

The center section features independent RGB controls for gain and pedestal, or white and black. This allows you to adjust the individual red, green and blue levels in your blacks and whites to compensate for unwanted colour.

  • White
    Independent RGB control for gain/whites
  • Black
    Adjust the RGB values for pedestal/blacks
Lens and Iris Controls

The bottom section features an LED camera number that indicates preview and on air status, along with a high quality professional joystick that’s used to precisely adjust the iris and master black. It also features a call button for talkback with the operator, along with a panel lock button and indicators for the network, power and cable connection to the camera.

  • Iris Control
    Joystick for adjusting iris and master black. Adjust up and down for iris, rotate for master black and push to select camera to monitor
  • Coarse Control

  • Call Button

Live Production Workflow

Works seamlessly with ATEM switchers

The ATEM Camera Control Panel connects directly to your ATEM live production switcher or ATEM hardware control panel via Ethernet. In many setups, you may be using multiple ATEM products such as an ATEM 4 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K switcher with an ATEM 1 M/E Advanced Panel and the ATEM Camera Control Panel. Ethernet can simply be looped from one ATEM device to another.

Fast and Easy Control

With traditional CCU controls, you can work much faster

The ATEM Camera Control is incredibly fast to use as it features traditional broadcast CCU controls so you get the benefit of years of broadcast experience. You can use the knob on the LCD to set the camera number, which turns red when a camera is on the air. The main joystick control can be moved vertically to adjust the camera iris while the knob can then be rotated to change the master black level. Pressing down on the knob will let you monitor the camera you’re currently controlling via the aux output of the switcher. Simply push the knobs to rapidly switch between cameras to ensure all your cameras match colour. The ATEM Camera Control Panel is fast to set up so you can instantly start controlling the cameras that are connected to your switcher.

Major announcements from Blackmagic Design

Not just some new products and technical updates from Blackmagic Design. No, these are major new products and massive technical updates.

Are we looking at the world’s most affordable 4K studio?

The latest products in the Blackmagic stable have completed a jigsaw puzzle that has everyone from corporate producers to television studio owners seriously taking notice. Kitting out a studio with three cameras, switcher, tally, talkback and remote camera set up, has traditionally only been within the reach of national broadcasters such as the BBC and Sky. Now, because of Blackmagic’s vision, more modest budgets can realise broadcast standard HD and even 4K UHD workflows.
