Blackmagic ATEM Camera Control Panel
The Blackmagic ATEM Camera Control Panel is a compact remote camera control unit designed to control up to four different URSA Broadcast, URSA Mini, Blackmagic Studio Camera, or Blackmagic Micro Studio cameras. The control panel features traditional broadcast style controls and adjustments so a single person can monitor and adjust a wide range of technical parameters such as black levels, gain, color balance, shutter speed, and more. This leaves your camera operators free to focus on the more creative aspects of live production such as framing and composition. Unlike traditional CCU controllers, which have to be installed into a desk, the Blackmagic ATEM Camera Control Panel has been designed to be portable so it can simply be placed on any desktop or bolted down so it can be mounted on a slide-out rack shelf. The controls are arranged in a familiar and logical layout, making them perfect for both experienced and new operators. Plus, it works with all ATEM switcher models
One person can control 4 cameras
When working on live multi-camera programs, it’s important to make sure all of the cameras are properly balanced and set up correctly so that you get consistent video from every angle. The Blackmagic ATEM Camera Control Panel features 4 camera controllers in one panel. Each camera controller includes a large LCD screen with soft buttons and knobs at the top of the panel, and a full set of professional controls below, on the main body of the panel.
Gain and Pedestal Controls
The center section features independent RGB controls for gain and pedestal, or white and black. This allows you to adjust the individual red, green, and blue levels in your blacks and whites to compensate for unwanted color.

Lens and Iris Controls
The bottom section features an LED camera number that indicates preview and on-air status, along with a high-quality professional joystick that’s used to precisely adjust the iris and master black. It also features a call button for a talkback with the operator, along with a panel lock button and indicators for the network, power, and cable connection to the camera.
Live Production Workflow
The Blackmagic ATEM Camera Control Panel connects directly to your ATEM live production switcher or ATEM hardware control panel via Ethernet. In many setups, you may be using multiple ATEM products such as an ATEM 4 M/E Studio 4K switcher with an ATEM 1 M/E Advanced Panel and the ATEM Camera Control Panel. Ethernet can simply be looped from one ATEM device to another.
