Professional Broadcast Panels
When you want fast professional control of your switcher during extremely complex live production, you can add an optional dedicated hardware broadcast panel to your switcher.

Both panels feature the highest quality buttons, knobs and controls for the most demanding 24/7 live production environment, giving you precise hands on control of all switcher functions.
Broadcast and live production situations demand mission critical reliability! Thats why ATEM Switchers use an internal aviation quality operating system! Cheap computer based switchers interrupt the video if the computer crashes, while ATEM doesn't have this problem because the computer is only the control panel! With ATEM you still have video output so your live event is protected from any possible computer failure. Simply use other control panels or restart your computer without interruption to the program!
