Yes, both of those should be able to accept a 1080p60 signal from a computer.

Any ideas what ports to use,

We have disconnected one of our filming cameras and used that HDMI lead that runs back to the system, but still no luck,

The HDMI ports should work, but I don't . If you're using a Mac, you may have issues with HDCP being active. You may also need to connect a second display to the computer and change the resolution/refresh rate to match the ATEM.
