Custom Macros - Trigger macros at the touch of a button!
When you’re running one of the ATEM hardware control panels selecting macros is faster because you can access all the switchers macros, and you have full control to record and play back macros at the push of a button. This means that you don’t need to use a computer to work with macros because you can operate them from the same hardware panel you are switching from. If you edit or modify a macro the change will appear on all connected control panels because the macros are stored in the switcher itself. The 2 M/E Broadcast Panel has dedicated macro buttons because of it’s larger size so you can set up different macros under different buttons and trigger them instantly at the push of a button and in the same way that you can cut between video sources.

Easily adjustable controls at your fingertips means you can adjust live key settings instantly if lighting or shadows change during the broadcast so you will always deliver incredible results.
Fader Bar - Exciting manual transitions
Amazing live performances often require transitions that need to be controlled manually. The ergonomically designed T bar control lets you ride transitions perfectly as part of the live performance! Sometimes the emotion of a live event means you need to feel a transition to get it perfectly in sync with the camera operators and talent. Like a conductor, the vision mixer is part of the performance and drives the mood as the production unfolds.
Auto Transition - Fully automatic transitions
Just below the ATEM broadcast panel fader bar is the auto transition button. Selecting auto will instantly perform the next transition you have setup in the transition block. You can use auto transitions for every type of transition including dissolves, keying, wipe patterns and animated DVE transitions. Automatic transitions can be pre programed for any duration from 1 to 250 frames and are ideal for smooth constant mixing between cameras.

Fade to Black
The broadcast panel fade to black button controls the entire output of the switcher! Selecting FTB will smoothly fade your program output to black at a preset transition rate. FTB is very useful for the start and end of your production or for fading out to commercial breaks. Because fade to black will always override your live program output, button guards have been designed to stop accidental triggering. This means you only hit fade to black button when you intend to!
