ATEM SDI gives you the portable design of ATEM Mini but its SDI connections means you can connect advanced broadcast quality cameras and recorders. This opens up a whole new world of ultra portable live production. The incredibly portable design means you can fit a whole broadcast quality live production system in a small bag or even a backpack. You can use multiple cameras on location and live stream direct to YouTube or create a broadcast quality link back to a studio with ATEM Streaming Bridge. Unlike single camera remote shoots ATEM SDI lets you connect multiple cameras so you can create interesting remote interviews with multiple camera angles.

ATEM SDI’s compact all in one design includes both a control panel as well as connections. The front panel includes easy to use buttons for selecting sources video effects and transitions. The source buttons are large so it’s possible to use it by feel letting the presenter do the switching. You even get buttons for audio mixing. The ATEM SDI Pro and Extreme models have buttons for recording and streaming control as well as output selection buttons that let you change the video output between program direct camera feeds and the multiview. On the rear panel there are SDI connections for cameras extra microphone inputs USB for webcam plus multiple SDI aux outputs for program video.

There's never been a switcher that’s easier to use as you simply press any of the input buttons labelled by number on the front panel to cut between video sources. You can choose between cut or effects transitions by selecting the cut or auto buttons. Unlike cut the auto button tells ATEM SDI to use a video effect when switching inputs. You can select from exciting transitions such as dissolve or more dramatic effects such as dip to colour DVE squeeze and DVE push. Add a DVE effect for picture in picture effects with customized picture positions and background. There are even media players which are a still store for titles and graphics that you can load via external software control.

With 4 or 8 video inputs depending on the model ATEM SDI 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 they 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 production music performances sports and more.

To ensure maximum compatibility all ATEM SDI models feature USB that operates as a simple webcam source. That means you can plug into a computer and get working with any video software. The software is tricked into thinking the ATEM SDI is a common webcam but it's really a live production switcher. That guarantees full compatibility with any video software and in full resolution 1080HD quality. Choose any software you like such as Zoom Microsoft Teams or Skype for a new way to do presentations with a professional multi camera broadcast quality style. The ATEM SDI webcam output also works with streaming software such as Open Broadcaster XSplit Broadcaster and more.

ATEM SDI Pro and ATEM SDI Extreme models have a built in hardware streaming engine for live streaming via their ethernet connections. That means you can live stream to YouTube Facebook and Twitch in better quality without dropped frames and with simpler settings. Just select the streaming service and enter the streaming key. There are palettes in ATEM Software Control for streaming setup plus streaming status is also displayed in the multiview. Streaming status is easy to understand as the data rate indicator shows internet speed required for the video format you're using. If you're technically minded you can update the streaming profiles in an XML settings file to load new services.

ATEM SDI is even more powerful it can be expanded to grow with you. Add an ATEM Advanced Panel to get professional industry standard switcher control. Then add an ATEM Camera Control Panel for fast control and colour balancing of up to four cameras. For cameras Blackmagic Studio Cameras make great studio cameras as they have tally and control all built into the compact and very portable design. For mastering Blackmagic HyperDeck Studio recorders are perfect because they include popular file formats such as ProRes H.264 and DNx. You can even live stream using an UltraStudio or Blackmagic Web Presenter. Then add a Micro Converter SDI to HDMI 3G converter for HDMI monitoring.
