Now you can position your cameras a long distance away from your switcher and get closer to the action with ATEM Camera and Studio Converters. ATEM Camera Converter is a super tough optical fiber converter with talkback, tally, microphone inputs and a built in long life battery. Using low cost optical fiber you can connect to your cameras up to 28 miles away and even at those great distances you still get full bi-directional video, audio, talkback and tally signals!

Get everything you need for cameras in live production with a single converter! Connect your camera’s SDI or HDMI outputs for conversion to optical fiber, while your switcher program feed can be fed back via optical fiber for camera monitoring. ATEM Camera Converter includes an internal battery, talkback, tally, and microphone inputs!

ATEM Converters are the perfect solution for live music and sporting events where you need to place cameras in remote locations such as on race tracks or near to a stage, where there is a huge distance between the live action and your switcher!

The ATEM converter for use at opposite ends of a live camera connection! ATEM Camera Converter converts your camera’s SDI or HDMI output to optical fiber, with embedded external audio and talkback from the camera position. The machined aluminum design is lightweight, strong and includes an internal long life battery for increased portability.

ATEM converters connect using industry standard single mode optical fiber cable with standard LC connectors. Optical fiber lets you connect way beyond the distance of traditional copper cables. It’s widely available, easy to use and affordable because it’s the same optical fiber cable used in computer networking. The ATEM Camera Converter uses the standard SMPTE specification for optical fiber connections using standard single mode optical fiber running at 1310nm, which allows you to connect at distances up to 28 miles!

During busy live production it’s vital to be able to talk to your camera operators. ATEM Camera Converters take advantage of the 16 channel SDI audio standard and embed the talkback into rarely used channels 15 and 16. ATEM Camera Converter uses standard PC or iPhone type headsets .

It’s important for camera operators to know when their camera is on air, so they don’t inadvertently change their shot when millions of people could be viewing! ATEM Camera Converters support SDI tally output from the program feed of switchers, such as Blackmagic Design’s ATEM range of live production switchers. When a camera is on air a red LED illuminates on the ATEM Camera Converter and a red tally border is displayed on the converter’s SDI and HDMI monitoring outputs!

ATEM Camera Converter is machined from a solid block of aluminum to withstand daily use in live production environments. The integrated belt clip lets you operate cameras easily while connected to headsets.  All video and audio connections are on the rear panel and the built in power supply supports 110V to 240V.

ATEM Camera Converter features high quality SDI and HDMI inputs for connecting professional SDI and consumer HDMI cameras. It includes 1/4″ stereo jack mic/line inputs so  external commentary and effects audio can be sent from the camera position.
