      My company is going to build a production studio for product demos, training videos and webinars. I’ve seen demos of the TriCaster at NAB2012 and at a local reseller, but I have no experience with the Black Magic ATEM 1 M/E switcher and broadcast panel. So tell me – besides the HDMI inputs in the ATEM, what other differences do I need to know about?

      ATEM switchers are mainly that – switchers. TriCasters go well beyond with Live Virtual Sets, dual DDR playback, live webasting, ISO recording of Program Stream AND sources at full res, built-in editing and CG apps. TC has built-in scaling to convert any video input source resolution and frame rate to any desired output, including computer sources from a network. ATEM playback channels are limited to very short clips/logos/transitions, while TC can playback hours of footage from hard drives. Apples and oranges in many areas.
