Echolab introduces Atem switcher

Echolab has unveiled a small format (1 M/E) HD production switcher that supports 3Gb/s 1080p/60 projects and costs less than $20,000. The new Atem features four upstream and two downstream keyers as well as Echolab’s SuperSource crosspoint and Stinger transitions. This allows users to build a composition of as many as 11 layers.

There are also 10 mixed-format inputs with built-in synchronization and scaling, so that every input accepts SD or HD signals, while two of the inputs accept computer signals, enabling the switcher to fit seamlessly into any production environment. In addition to program, preview and three auxiliary outputs in the switcher's native format, Atem has two analog auxiliary outputs with internal down/crossconversion for SD distribution.

Other features include inexpensive monitoring of program, preview and eight other sources via a built-in multiviewer; an internal clip player for animated lower thirds, backgrounds, or short clips; built-in 2-D DVE for DVE transitions and animating objects on screen; and an FAA-certified operating system for 24/7 reliability and 10-second boot time.
