We are proud to present the ATEM CCU that let you take full camera control in a sweet looking hardware panel. The controller offer both ease of operation and multi-functionality with the user friendly buttons. With the launch of the Blackmagic Studio Camera, BMD entered yet another domain in live production. The Studio Camera series and the URSA Mini offers DaVinci Resolve primary color corrector and with the integrated CCU in the Software Panel you’re able to remotely control color, cameras settings and lens control. But we have great news - you are no longer limited to tweak your cameras in the software. We proudly present the ATEM CCU - it's full remote camera control from a dedicated control surface. The control surface lets you adjust multiple parameters simultaneously. The master black and iris adjustment are controlled by multi turn dials, and the illuminated buttons and displays provides high visibility even in dark locations. The OLED menu rocker switch let you toggle between all the settings you need to adjust and refine for each camera´s image.
- 8 red, green or amber broadcast quality buttons for camera selection
- Transparent button caps for custom labels
- 35mm multi turn dial (aluminium knob) control for Iris
- 24mm multi turn dial (aluminium knob) control for Master Black
- 2 miniature high contrast 128x32 OLED Displays, white on black.
- 4 RGB backlit 64x32 pixel displays
- 5 rotary encoders
- OLED Rocker Switch for system menu control (96x64 pixels)
- Option: Blackmagic 3G-SDI Arduino Shield
- Completely self contained unit with SKAARDUINO Due inside
- Dimensions: 29.5 x 18 x 7.5 cm
- Weight: 1.100 kg
By default the ATEM CCU selects between CAM 1-8 on the camera selector. Alternatively you can configure the ATEM CCU to select between the 8 cameras on MultiViewer 1 or MultiViewer 2, by selecting this option in the web interface. If a selected camera is on preview on the ATEM Switcher the button will light up green. If the selected camera is on program the button will blink red. In UniSketch OS you can enable autoroute to a specific ATEM AUX channel or any other device capable of video routing. This is a great feature if you have a engineering monitor to match your cameras. By pressing and holding buttons on the camera selector you can control multiple cameras at the same time. In this mode cameras will be adjusted relatively from their original position. All shading parameters can be adjusted in this mode.
Camera Control via ATEM
The ATEM CCU connects either directly to the ATEM Switcher via Ethernet or via a network switch/hub. Once connected our ATEM CCU communicates with the ATEM Switcher which, then relays CCU shading information to the cameras. You need an SDI return feed to the cameras you want to control (for instance a AUX channel) to relay the CCU data. This setup is similar to using the ATEM Software Control Panel. The ATEM Software Control Panel and the ATEM CCU are in sync, so when changing shading parameters these will be reflected both places.
ATEM CCU w. Blackmagic 3G-SDI Arduino Shield
Select this option if you want to relay CCU information to Blackmagic Cameras without the need of an ATEM Switcher. In order to distribute the SDI return feed to multiple cameras you need to use a SDI Distribution unit (or something similar like a VideoHub). This will allow you to distribute the SDI control signal from the Blackmagic Arduino Shield mounted in our ATEM CCU to multiple cameras. The ATEM CCU w. Blackmagic 3G-SDI Arduino Shield can work either via the Arduino Shield or via IP to the ATEM Swticher. You select which option you want in the web interface. The BlacMagic 3g-SDI Arduino Shield supports the following outputs: 720p50, 720p59.94, 720p60, 1080i50, 1080i59.94, 1080i60, 1080p23.98, 1080p24, 1080p25, 1080p29.97, 1080p30, 1080p50, 1080p59.94 and 1080p60, but the camera doesn´t have to be running the same video format as the program input, so you can use cameras in Ultra HD while the camera protocol is sent over HD signal to the camera.
The ATEM CCU with the Blackmagic 3G-SDI Arduino Shield controls any Blackmagic camera that supports CCU over the return SDI feed. This includes the Micro Studio Camera 4K, Studio Cameras and the URSA Mini (+ Pro).
