The definition of a Constellation is a group of stars forming a recognizable pattern that’s named after its shape. With the ATEM Constellation, Blackmagic have brought together a unique set of stellar features in the shape of the most capable video switcher on the market. Unlike other switchers, all this power is included in the price, rather than through add on licences, and as a result customers are not only using the Constellation as just a switcher.
One of the brightest stars in the Constellation is the powerful Multiviewer which is spread over 4 UHD outputs. This is incredibly customisable and allows you to view up to 64 different videos simultaneously. Each output can have 4, 7, 10, 13 or 16 simultaneous views. Each view also has on screen status including a customisable label, VU meters and tally. The four 12G‑SDI multiview outputs support HD and Ultra HD up to 2160p60, and even 8K at 4320p60 via if you join them all together in a Quad Link. If there is another Multiviewer on the planet with this specification it costs several times more than the Constellation switcher.
The Multiviewer performance is stunning on its own but remember each one of the 40 inputs has a separate standards converter.
You even get a built-in hardware professional 156 channel Fairlight audio mixer with EQ and dynamics. This can be plugged into a full Fairlight audio console.
