Discover the power of advanced production from this Blackmagic Design ATEM Television Studio HD8 ISO. A great ATEM television studio HD model, the HD8 ISO includes all the features of ATEM Television Studio HD8 plus the ISO recording of all 8 inputs to separate video files. This compact, redesigned live TV switcher is a great fit for any streaming production, providing eight 3G-SDI inputs that support up to 1080p60 video, built-in live streaming, USB webcam support, audio mixing, chroma keyers, DVE, transitions, media players, internal recording, and talkback support.

The switcher is a professional live production switcher built into a broadcast control panel so it can be used for high-end work while being extremely portable. This means you can use it in small venues that don't have access to equipment racks or broadcast vans. You get a powerful switcher with 8 standards converted SDI inputs, 2 aux outputs, 4 chroma keyers, 2 downstream keyers, SuperSource, 2 media players, and lots of transitions! Plus it includes a whole television studio of features such as hardware streaming, recording, audio mixer, talkback, multiview, and optional internal cloud storage. There's even an ISO model that records all 8 inputs for editing!


  • Live Production - You get an incredibly powerful 8-input switcher with both program and two aux outputs so you have everything you need for mobile production. That means you can connect up to 8 cameras! Plus you get professional camera control, talkback, and audio mixing all designed into a familiar broadcast panel.
  • Post Production - The ISO model records all inputs into separate files so you can edit using any NLE that supports multi-cam! That's possible because all files have perfect timecode sync! Plus with built-in network storage, you can edit while recording! Multiple users can even share media and collaborate!
  • Distribution - With a built-in hardware streaming engine, you can live stream your event to a global audience! Recording to H.264 files with AAC audio means you get the correct format to upload to YouTube. Plus you share live broadcasts with your audience by using the aux outputs and large screens and projectors!


  • There's never been a switcher that’s easier to use, as you simply press any of the program row buttons on the front panel to cut between video sources. Or you can pre-select a source on the preview row and then choose between cut or effect transitions by selecting the cut or auto buttons. You can select from exciting transitions such as dissolve, or more dramatic effects such as dip to color, DVE squeeze, and DVE push. You can even add a DVE for picture-in-picture effects with customized graphics. 


  • Compact Broadcast Vans - With the all-in-one design, you can build a new generation of ultra-compact broadcast vans! You don't need racks of equipment, so you can eliminate clutter for a much nicer work environment. For stability, you can even mount the switcher inset to the desk!
  • Music Venues and Clubs - Some of the most exciting venues, such as downstairs music venues or comedy clubs, are too small for racks of video equipment. However, ATEM Television Studio can be carried into any venue! It’s also easy to pack up, even if the venue is still crowded.
  • Online Education - ATEM Television Studio is perfect for creating educational content! As the ISO model records the video inputs, you can finesse edits, replace shots and even add color correction! Plus you can even connect to Zoom to incorporate live chat with students!
  • Live Sports - ATEM Television Studio is perfect for live sports because it has a simple design that's easy for community volunteers to use. It can be installed in sports clubs or taken on the road with the team! With up to 8 cameras, you'll catch all the exciting angles!


  • The ATEM Television Studio HD combines a switcher and control panel into the same unit, so it’s extremely portable. You get everything you need! The front panel includes buttons for selecting sources, triggering transitions, and setting up video effects. Plus the buttons are the same high-end type used on expensive broadcast switchers! You also get a built-in t-bar for manual transition control! The front panel even has an innovative audio mixer control area with live metering on a dedicated LCD. 


  • With 8 3G-SDI video inputs, ATEM Television Studio HD lets you connect multiple cameras for different views of the performance. Video cameras with SDI outputs, such as Blackmagic Studio Camera or Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2, are much better quality as they have better low-light performance and use professional lenses. All video sources will re-sync to the switcher, even if they operate at different video standards. Everything just works so setup on location is easy and you don't have to worry about technical problems. Imagine taking advantage of the creative freedom of multi-camera live production for interviews, advertorials, theater productions, music performances, sports, and more!


  • One of the benefits of ATEM Television Studio is the range of professional built-in video effects! The cut button ensures an instant cut when switching between sources. The t-bar fader can be used to transition video effects, or you can do the transition automatically by pressing the auto button. Auto uses the transition duration set in the system control. You can also select the type of effect you want including mix, which does a smooth transition between sources, or dip which transitions via a third video source, such as a color generator. There is a wide range of SMPTE wipes included, plus fun DVE effects that slide or squeeze the image off-screen when transitioning between video sources!


  • ATEM Television Studio includes the same kind of transitions found on expensive broadcast switchers. This means the effects and transitions can be customized in many different ways, so they are surprisingly powerful. You'll never stop finding new ways of using them! That’s because all transitions can be customized by adjusting parameters such as duration, border color, border width, position, and direction. You can even use the DVE with a wipe transition, where the DVE moves a graphic over the wiping edge. That's called a graphic wipe and it’s often used in sports broadcasting. The preview transition button can be used to set up effects offline, which is great for eliminating mistakes.


  • In addition to the DVE in the ATEM Television Studio, there is also a powerful SuperSource multi-layer processor! SuperSource gives you 4 extra DVE layers plus a background layer, all layered together as an additional input source. Any video input can be used as sources for each DVE, then it’s all layered together over a media pool custom background or live video. SuperSource is perfect for doing multiple picture-in-picture displays with people being interviewed because you can set up the effect so the viewer can see each person being interviewed all within a stylish graphic. SuperSource is just like having a completely independent multi-layer VFX switcher built in!


  • The ATEM Television Studio HD features 8 independent 3G-SDI inputs, with each input featuring its own dedicated standards converter. That means it’s possible to convert any 1080HD or 720HD input source to the video standard of the switcher! That means you could have each switcher SDI input running a different television standard and all the inputs would just work! SDI input audio channels 1, 2, 3, and 4 can also be manually routed to various embedded audio channels in the program and aux outputs.


  • The ATEM Television Studio includes nine 3G‑SDI program outputs so you get enough connections to send a separate program return feed to all of your cameras! That’s important because the SDI program return is used to send tally, talkback, and control information back to the cameras! You also get 2 dedicated aux outputs for driving stage monitors and master recorders. These aux outputs can be live switched using dedicated buttons on the control panel! Aux 1 even includes an on-screen counter for presenter monitoring. Plus you can manually route audio into all 16 embedded audio channels in the SDI outputs! For camera monitoring, there is a dedicated 3G-SDI and HDMI output for the multiview.


  • With a built-in Fairlight audio mixer, ATEM Television Studio HD makes it possible to do complex live sound mixing. The internal mixer features enough channels for all SDI inputs, as well as extra channels for the XLR, RCA, and MADI inputs! Each input channel features the highest quality 6-band parametric EQ, compressor, limiter, expander, and noise gate as well as level and pan controls. You can mix all these input channels together at the same time, or you can set video sources to "audio follow video". The audio mixer is extremely powerful and it can be adjusted from the front panel using the dedicated audio mixer controls and LCD. Plus you can also mix audio using ATEM Software Control!


  • With support for DaVinci Resolve project files in the ISO model, you get a full post-production workflow with editing, color correction, visual effects, and audio mixing. Plus DaVinci Resolve is a free download for Mac, Windows, and Linux, so there are no monthly license costs. Simply open the project and you'll see your live production as an edit timeline. You can trim edits and remove shots you don't want! On the cut page, the sync bin will show alternative shots in a multiview display. If you want to replace a shot, then simply click an alternative! Finally, you can add professional DaVinci color correction. You can even relink to Blackmagic RAW camera files if you want to finish in Ultra HD!


  • The ATEM Software Control app unlocks the hidden power of ATEM Television Studio HD by allowing access to all the features in the switcher. ATEM Software Control features a visual switcher user interface with parameter palettes for making adjustments. Although you can connect via USB, if you connect using Ethernet you can run multiple copies of ATEM Software Control on different computers! The software lets you live switch, mix audio, color correct in the cameras, and manage media. You can also build and run complex macros from the software! Plus you can save the switcher state as an XML file for recalling jobs later!


  • ATEM Television Studio HD supports multiple languages in the menus and in the ATEM Software Control, so you can customize it to the language you prefer. You get support in English, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, German, French, Russian, Italian, Portuguese, Turkish, Polish, and Ukrainian languages. Simply go into the setup menu to change the language, or you can always switch to another language at any time in the future. Once a language is selected, the menus on all the LCDs will change to the selected language. Multiple language support means ATEM Television Studio HD is perfect for doing live production work anywhere in the world and with any crew!
