  • Broadcast and Consumer Connections
  • Optical Fiber Link
    Optical fiber is the perfect connection because it's used in computer networking and is common, affordable and easy to purchase! ATEM Camera Converter uses a single mode optical fiber pair with LC type connectors, so you get the freedom to connect your cameras up to 147,000 feet or 45KM from your switcher! That blows away the 300 feet limitation of SDI cable, so you can place cameras close to the action! Optical fiber is low cost, thin, and lightweight, plus is fully compatible with broadcast optical fiber SDI products.
  • Includes Talkback
    In live production it's critical for your camera operators to talk to the switcher operator so you can work as a team! ATEM Camera Converter includes talkback using low cost PC headsets or iPhone-compatible headphones, so each camera can communicate with the director at the switcher. ATEM Camera Converter talkback works by embedding the microphone audio into channels 15 and 16 of the camera optical fiber video output and listening to channels 15 and 16 of the optical fiber input on the headphones. You even get press to talk PTT and headphone level buttons on the keypad!
  • Battery or AC Powered
    ATEM Camera Converter includes a standard 12 volt input that supports operation up to 30 volt DC. That let's you use a wide range of power sources or even a car battery! You get a built in battery that lasts for hours and is recharged when plugged into a power supply. The 12V power connection uses a standard connector, so if you lose your power supply you can simply purchase one from any electrical retailer. If your power connection ever fails during a live event, the internal battery is automaically used to keep the ATEM Camera Converter operating! It's just like a built in UPS!
  • Built In Tally
    Now you can clearly see when your cameras are on air! ATEM Camera Converter uses an open standard tally packet in the SDI output on any ATEM switcher to illuminate 2 built in tally LEDs! All you need to do is connect the ATEM switcher's program output to the ATEM Camera Converter via the return optical fiber feed! Then simply select the camera number via USB software or using the camera number button on the keypad. If you have external monitoring plugged into the HDMI or SDI outputs, you can even display a red tally border on your monitor!
  • Belt Clip or Camera Mount
    When you need to move around, ATEM Camera Converter is perfect because it moves with you! With an integrated belt clip, you can simply snap it onto your belt, connect the cables, and move around with ease. If you're using a tripod, it's easy to strap ATEM Camera Converter onto the tripod beside your camera. When your camera is located in remote locations without power, the built in battery will keep you going for hours! Or, when power is available, plug in the power and use the internal battery as a built in UPS!
