The BlackMagic Design ATEM Camera Control Panel is a compact remote camera control unit designed to control up to four different URSA Broadcast, URSA Mini, Blackmagic Studio or Blackmagic Micro Studio cameras.
The control panel features traditional broadcast style controls and adjustments so a single person can monitor and adjust a wide range of technical parameters such as black levels, gain, colour balance, shutter speed and more. This leaves your camera operators free to focus on the more creative aspects of live production such as framing and composition. Unlike traditional CCU controllers, which have to be installed into a desk, the ATEM Camera Control Panel has been designed to be portable so it can simply be placed on any desktop or bolted down so it can be mounted in a slide out rack shelf.
The controls are arranged in a familiar and logical layout, making it perfect for both experienced and new operators. Plus, it works with all ATEM switcher models.
One person can control 4 cameras:
When working on live multi camera programs, it’s important to make sure all of the cameras are properly balanced and set up correctly so that you get consistent video from every angle. The ATEM Camera Control Panel features 4 camera controllers in one panel. Each camera controller includes a large LCD screen with soft buttons and knobs at the top of the panel, and a full set of professional controls below, on the main body of the panel.
Scene and Camera Controls:
The top section lets you save and recall scene presets so you can quickly adjust cameras based on changes in the scene such as lighting. This section also includes controls for adjusting master gain, white balancing the camera and changing the camera’s shutter speed.
- White Balance: Quickly set and adjust white balance.
- Load Scenes: Save and recall scene presets.
- Master Gain: Boost sensitivity of sensor in low light or when more depth of field is needed.
- Shutter Speed: Set the shutter speed of the camera.
- Bars: Select to output colour bars for the selected camera.
Gain and Pedestal Controls:
The centre section features independent RGB controls for gain and pedestal, or white and black. This allows you to adjust the individual red, green and blue levels in your blacks and whites to compensate for unwanted colour.
- White: Independent RGB control for gain/whites.
- Black: Adjust the RGB values for pedestal/blacks.
