It's classic Blackmagic
Brane, 26.12.2020
In short: works fine, loud fans, there are a few classic Blackmagic gotchas.

Coming from ATEM TV Studio (the previous, 19" fanless version) the first thing you notice when you turn it on, is the fans. You get used to them over time, but they're definitely louder than laptop fans for example, and that's on their lowest RPM. They only get louder as the unit gets hotter. In a loud-ish venue, outside, etc. - it's perfectly fine. Not good if you're planning on using it in a quiet studio, especially not near a mic. There are guides out there on replacing the fans with quieter Noctua ones. We're planning on doing that, but this will probably void the warranty.

I haven't found a way to dim the lights on buttons 1-8. In very dark environments, the green lights especially are definitely annoyingly bright. The buttons can be useful in a pinch, solidly built, but for any more complex production, expect to use ATEM software control, or some other means of controlling the switcher.

Multiview output resolution & refresh rate is tied to the global resolution & framerate. In some cases you get an option to choose interlaced or progressive output (only for multivew!), in other cases you don't. Keep this in mind, if you're planning on using a PC monitor. 1080p59.94 will work fine, but 1080p29.97 (29.97Hz) will likely not work with a PC monitor. You will have an option to use 1080i59.94 (59.94Hz) multiview output in that case, which will likely work with your PC monitor, but the image on the monitor will likely appear soft and jittery, as PC monitors usually don't really know what to do with interlaced signals. No problems with camera / broadcast style monitors.

Unfortunately the AES/EBU input is gone, but, there are XLR inputs, which have a low enough noise floor, seems lower than on most prosumer level camcorders. If you're planning on using those, you will likely need a delay box. We're using DEQ2496 for that (and some light sound processing).

Other than that, it works as expected, no problems so far.
