Designed forMassive Live Events!
With so many inputs, ATEM Constellation is ideal for concerts and music festivals because you can place cameras on all areas of the stage for amazing coverage! Even live sports benefit from the huge number of inputs and four DVEs let you build multi‑layer compositions to cover the action. The fastest way to produce programming is live! With powerful internal graphics and four ATEM Advanced Chroma Keyers, you get everything you need for complex program production. ATEM Constellation is also perfect for house of worship programming as it has the size to produce professional results, but it’s simple to learn so it’s easy to train volunteer crew!
The Ultra HDSwitcher Readyfor an 8K Future!
Because ATEM Constellation is so incredibly big, you can use it as a massive HD and Ultra HD switcher, then instantly combine all of these features together to work in native 8K. You get the power of 40 independent 12G‑SDI inputs when working in HD or Ultra HD, or when switched to 8K, these 40 inputs transform into 10 Quad Link 12G‑SDI 8K inputs! Each input even has up and cross conversion! That means you can instantly switch 720p, 1080p, 1080i, Ultra HD and 8K video standards! Plus, you get 4 independent Ultra HD multi views that also transform into a full resolution 8K multi view! Even the keyers, DVE, Super Source and downstream keyers all switch to native 8K!
Seriously Advanced Broadcast Power
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 you 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. Even with all this power, ATEM Constellation is extremely quiet with its innovative high efficiency thermal system and three low speed cooling fans.
Full Front Panel Control
With a built in control panel, you can simply walk up and take full control of ATEM Constellation at any time. Because it works similar to ATEM Television Studio, it’s a fantastic upgrade when you need a bigger switcher! You 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! You also get professional talkback with engineering and production loops, plus an XLR talkback headset connection. But you're never limited, as the LCD menus also allow every single operational feature of the switcher to be accessed!
Massive 40 StandardsConverted 12G‑SDI Inputs!
You 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 your 8K programs! When used in HD or Ultra HD, you can connect up to 40 different sources in all formats up to 2160p60. When running 8K formats, you can connect up to 10 Quad Link 12G‑SDI 8K sources in all formats up to 4320p60! You can even loop out audio channels 1, 2, 3 and 4 from SDI inputs 1 to 30 to the two MADI digital audio outputs,so you can hand off the audio from all your sources to an external audio engineer for mixing
24 Customizable 12G‑SDI Outputs
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 they're more powerful because you can route any external SDI input and all internal sources to any of these 12G‑SDI outputs. That’s flexible enough to run independent program feeds, clean feeds, or outputs for on stage projectors and video walls. It’s like having multiple switchers all running at the same time with everyone getting the custom feed they need. All 12G‑SDI outputs contain embedded program audio, plus you get mix minus support, RP‑188 embedded timecode, SDI camera control, tally and talkback.
