Fantastic Multi use switcher replacing our old switcher. Highly recommended
Review by Greg
Great tool for the price
Aside from one basic shortcoming, I really like the BlackMagic ATEM video switches. They work well, and they are cost-effective. With multiple overlay options, I can have titles, a channel logo, and even PiP video up on the screen, all at the same time.

The only down side to the ATEM switches is that there's no internal sacler, so you must always have your cameras set to the same resolution, unless you buy external equipment to match the switcher's operating settings.

Regardless, the ATEM TV Studio HD works well for live video production; whether you're running a live webcast, small TV production, live performance, or house of worship, the TVSHD is a great entry-level switcher.
