ATEM Television Studio HD: 1080p/60?

PostTue Jun 30, 2020 1:37 pm

Hello everyone,

please bear with me if I should have found the answer in this forum - well I didn't.

There are reviews about issues with the ATEM Television Studio HD when 1080p/60 is the required output format, especially with the SDI inputs. Looking into the manual, this might be the true: I found the highest supported format being 1080(i,p)59,94.

I'd want to use the switcher primarily with laptop sources for my software courses, and the graphic cards that I own deliver /60. Straight, no fraction. With my ATEM Mini, this is not a problem, since the video specs can be set to both 1080p/59.94 and /60.

As I need additional inputs, I was thinking of the ATEM Television Studio HD, but everything should be in sync, of course - not only "for the most part".

Any reliable propositions before I buy one?

Thanks a lot,

Gary Adams

Hello Andreas. The HDMI inputs on the Television Studio HD accept 60 Hz frame rates while the SDI inputs only accept 59.94 Hz in this case. You might consider the Up Down Cross HD for the SDI inputs as they will accept a variety of computer resolutions. Stay safe.
