Yesterday I was talking to you about Fusion 7 for OSX, a Blackmagic application that will allow you to make any VFX composition on your Mac's, the best thing is that Fusion 7 will arrive soon with its free version to all our Mac's and this will be a good opportunity to start experimenting further in the audiovisual world. All thanks to the Blackmagic's strategy of releasing free software to create "school" in a way.
But they are not known only for the software (in fact the software they have has been the result of the purchase of the companies that created the applications), they also have a large catalog of hardware that ranges from the mythical film cameras (with prices much more affordable than the competition) to audiovisual hardware for our Mac's and PC's. Today we bring you a Blackmagic solution that replaces classic (and expensive) realization tables, today we bring you the ATEM Television Studio, Blackmagic's proposal so that we can do any multicamera realization from our Mac's.
As you can see in the image, the ATEM Television Studio is a device initially designed to be incorporated into any rack but that you can handle at will. The device comes accompanied by the production software with which you will see a perfect production table on your Mac with which you can switch any of the cameras that you connect to the ATEM Television Studio. You can connect to the device up to four different camerasVia HDMI (this is what makes you interesting) or SDI. In the case of HDMI you have to take into account the limitation that comes with the HDMI cable itself in terms of its length (just 5 meters away and is not compatible with extension cords), in SDI length won't be a problem.
The software will allow you to make a realization to the cut or with transitions as if it were a professional realization table. In addition, with the latest version of the ATEM Television Studio software, you can embed in Croma live. I invite you to investigate a little more about the ATEM Television Studio in its official website, as a strong point I will tell you that it has a price of € 935, something quite cheap for a product with these characteristics.
