Boston University’s College of Communication (COM) is using Blackmagic Design’s ATEM 1 M/E production switcher and ATEM 1 M/E broadcast panel in its production and journalism studios. The studios are used by hundreds of students and faculty, specifically butv10 and butv10.com—the university’s student-produced campus channel and website. In addition, numerous production professionals in the area rent the facilities.

The ATEM 1 M/E production switcher and broadcast panel are at the heart of COM’s two full-production studios. They are being used for everything from butv10’s live programming to the seven other studio-based series in production, including the 2011 Telly Award winning On That Point. “The ATEM products allow us greater dexterity in our production capability,” says Assistant Professor Christophor Cavalieri, butv10’s faculty advisor. “They are great tools to train the next generation of multi-camera production professionals.”

Boston University’s College of Communication (COM) is using Blackmagic Design’s ATEM 1 M/E production switcher and ATEM 1 M/E broadcast panel in its production and journalism studios.

The transition to the ATEM hardware was seamless, with students and technical staffers completing production of weekly shows and other major projects after a single training session. “These studios are professional environments outfitted with top of the line equipment, which now includes a fully functional switcher and panel that are simple enough to both learn and teach,” says Jake Kassen, COM’s postproduction specialist.

“The ATEM 1 M/E production switcher’s numerous inputs and outputs allow users to customize their workflows, and the broadcast panel is so intuitive, it takes the hands on learning experience to new heights.” Students from around the country attending this summer’s Academy of Media Production (AMP) program at COM will be working with ATEM. AMP is a nationally acclaimed program for high school students interested in exploring educational and professional opportunities in media production.
