Video cameras with HDMIåÊoutputs areåÊdramatically better quality than simple webcamsåÊas theyåÊuse higher quality lenses and have better low light sensitivity. AllåÊvideo sources will re‰ÛÔsync to the switcher if they operateåÊat differentåÊvideo standards so you don't have to worry about connecting video devices as they all just work! Cameras with HDMI often support interchangeable lenses so you can change to wide angle lenses for wide shots and zoom lenses for close‰ÛÔups. Imagine taking advantage of the low light capability of better cameras for theater production, weddings, school concerts and musicåÊvideos!
Outputs toHDMI Videoand USBåÊWebcam!
To ensure maximum compatibility, ATEMåÊMini featuresåÊa USB connectionåÊthat operates as aåÊsimple webcam source.åÊThat meansåÊyou can plug in and instantly get working withåÊany videoåÊsoftware. The software is tricked into thinking the ATEMåÊMini is aåÊcommon webcam, but it's really aåÊlive production switcher!åÊThat guaranteesåÊfull compatibility with any video software and in full resolution 1080HD quality.åÊChoose anyåÊsoftware you like, such as Open Broadcaster for live streaming, or Skype foråÊPowerpoint presentations.åÊATEMåÊMini worksåÊwith software andåÊplatforms such as OpenåÊBroadcaster, XSplitåÊBroadcaster, YouTube Live, Facebook Live,åÊSkype, Zoom,åÊTwitch, Periscope, Livestream,åÊWirecast andåÊmore!
Live Stream viaEthernet on ATEMåÊMiniåÊPro
The ATEM Mini Pro model has aåÊbuilt in hardware streaming engine for live streaming via its built in Ethernet connection. That means you can live stream to YouTube, Facebook and Twitch in better quality, without dropped frames and with much simpler settings. Just select the streaming service and enter the streaming key! There are palettes in ATEM Software Control for streaming setup and status, plus streaming status is also displayed in the multiview. Streaming status is easy to understand as the data rate indicator shows internet speed required for the video format you're using. IfåÊyou're technically minded, you can even hack the detailed streaming profiles in the XML preference file and load newåÊservices.
Record DirectåÊto USB FlashåÊDisks withåÊATEM MiniåÊPro
The ATEM Mini Pro model also supports direct recording of your streaming data to USB flash disks! That means you get very long recordings in the same H.264 video files with AAC audio that you streamed, so you can direct upload to any online video site, such as YouTube and Vimeo. ATEM Mini Pro supports multiple disks when used with aåÊUSB hub or Blackmagic MultiDock, so when aåÊdisk fills recording can continue to aåÊsecond disk for non-stop recording. Record settings and disk selection are set up in ATEM Software Control and there's aåÊrecord status view in the built in multiview. YouåÊcan even trigger recording on external Blackmagic Pocket CinemaåÊCameras!
Add Exciting VideoåÊEffects
One of the benefits of ATEMåÊMini is the professional production values that are possible using the range of built in video effects! The cut button ensures an instant cut when switching between sources. TheåÊauto button is aåÊprofessional term that's used on large broadcast switchers to enable video effects transitions. There are duration buttons for video effects allowing 0.5, 1, 1.5 and 2 second settings. You can also select the type of effect you want including mix, which does aåÊsmooth transition between sources, and dip which fades via aåÊcolor during the transition. OråÊuse fun DVE effects that move the image off screen when transitioning between sources!
Work with Professional Microphones
With two independent 3.5mm stereo audio inputs, you can connect desktop and lapel microphones. You can even connect aåÊmusic player to generate introduction music after the live stream commences but before the program starts. With 2 extra stereo audio inputs, you can ensure a host and guest both have lapel microphones when doing interviews. All audio inputs to ATEMåÊMini include buttons on the panel for adjusting audio level and enabling inputs into the audio mixer. ATEMåÊMini features aåÊfull Fairlight audio mixer and all HDMI audio inputs and both microphone inputs are all connected separately to the audio mixer so you can live mix from all audioåÊsources.
Automatically ConvertsAny HDMI Input Format
Each of the 4 HDMI inputs feature their own dedicated standards converter. That means ATEMåÊMini will automatically convert 1080p, 1080i and 720p sources to the video standard of the switcher! By default the switcher will set its video format automatically, however you can also set the switcher to a specific video standard you need! The HDMI output is aåÊtrue "aux" output so you can clean switch each HDMI input or program to this output. You can even "direct" switch inputåÊ1 to the HDMIåÊoutput for low latency eSport productions. IfåÊyou're using program/preview switching, the HDMI outåÊcan be selectedåÊto preview, or on the ATEMåÊMini Pro model, itåÊcan be selected to display aåÊfullåÊmultiview.
Secret BroadcastFeatures BuiltåÊIn!
While ATEMåÊMini is easy to use, it's also hiding very powerful broadcast features! IfåÊyou're interested in aåÊcareer in the television industry, then ATEMåÊMini is perfect for training asåÊit hasåÊthe same features as switchers in high end broadcast studios. You get an ATEM Advanced Chroma Key, Fairlight audio mixer, DVE, still store for graphics and much more! Simply run the free ATEM Software Control app on MacåÊor WindowsåÊwhile connected via USB or Ethernet to accessåÊthe extendedåÊfeatures of the ATEMåÊMini. With aåÊlittle experimentation you can learn how to produce broadcast quality live production. Only ATEMåÊMini is a true broadcast switcher hidden in aåÊtiny and affordable design!
True BroadcaståÊStyleåÊMix EffectsåÊSwitching
Although ATEMåÊMini works in "cut bus" mode when first purchased, it can also be changed to "program/preview"åÊstyle operation,åÊwhich is the way large broadcasters use live production switchers. Cut bus switching is easy and selecting any input will instantly switch to that source. However if youåÊwant toåÊoperate ATEMåÊMini like aåÊtrue professional then you can change the switcher to program/preview using ATEM Software Control. Mix effects operation allows aåÊsource to be selectedåÊbut itåÊwon't be put on air until you press the cut or auto buttons.åÊThat 2åÊstepåÊprogram/preview process means fewer mistakes. Program/preview operation is best for training students for aåÊcareer in broadcast!
Monitor SourcesåÊand StatuswithåÊATEMåÊMini Pro Multiview!
When doing larger live productions with multiple cameras,åÊit‰۪s veryåÊuseful to see all your video sources at the same timeåÊon aåÊsingleåÊmonitor. The ATEMåÊMini Pro model includes aåÊprofessional multiview that lets you see all 4 video inputs,åÊplus previewåÊand program on aåÊsingle HDMI television or monitor! Simply select M/V on the front panel video output control buttons to select multiview! Each camera view includes tally indicators so you know when each source is on-air, and each view also has custom labels and audio meters. You can also see the media player so you know what graphic is selected. Plus multiview even includes status for recording, streaming and the Fairlight audioåÊmixer!
Use Ethernet Control for Wireless Internet Streaming
ATEM Software Control connects to ATEM Mini via USB or Ethernet, however the benefit of Ethernet is you can use it to share your computer's internet connection for streaming on the ATEM Mini Pro model! Simply connect ATEM Mini Pro via Ethernet and set your computer to share its internet. Using Ethernet is easy, and when launching the software, just select the ATEM Mini model. If you are streaming on ATEM Mini Pro, also set your computer to share its internet. Now you get both control and streaming via the single Ethernet cable. This provides amazing mobility as you can connect your computer to the internet using wireless connections such as WiFi or even 4G and 5G tetheredåÊphones!
Control andColor Balance Cameras!
For a more broadcast style workflow, you can remote control your cameras from ATEMåÊMini! Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K and 6K models can work as studio camerasåÊwith controlåÊsent via the HDMI connection to ATEMåÊMini.åÊThat means youåÊcan control the camera settings as well as theåÊcamera‰۪s color corrector from ATEM Software Control. ImagineåÊchanging ISO and tint, plus lens iris, focus and zoom, so camera operators can focus on the shot! There are two types of control interface, CCU layout for traditional tint color control and aåÊDaVinci color corrector interface allowing the camera‰۪s built in DaVinci color corrector to add incredible digital film "looks" to your liveåÊproduction!
The Ethernet connection also allows customized control solutions! Even though ATEMåÊMini includes ATEM Software Control, you can use the Ethernet to control the ATEM remotely, anywhere in the world. A popular workflow is to use the Ethernet to allow the ATEMåÊMini to be positioned near the HDMI cameras, but the control is positioned remotely in a quieter space, such as a control room. Imagine using the switcher from a control room and buildingåÊa professionalåÊbroadcasting studio where the control room can be separated away from the performance or interviews. Ethernet allows you to add as many panels as you like all at the same time, or you can build custom solutions using the developer SDK!
Record to an External HyperDeck Recorder!
The HDMI program output is perfect for connecting ATEM Mini to an external recorder or monitor! ATEM Mini supports recorders such as Blackmagic Video Assist. YouåÊget aåÊhigh quality output with switcher program video, plus live audio from the internal audio mixer. TheåÊHDMI output can even be connected to video projectors in large venues. IfåÊyou connect ATEM Software Control you can even ISO record from one of the inputs. Plus on the more advanced ATEM Mini Pro model you can generate multiple formats by recording from the HDMI program output in ProRes while simultaneously recording the H.264 video stream to aåÊUSB flashåÊdisk!
Switch Faster with anATEM 1åÊM/E AdvancedåÊPanel
With Ethernet built in, ATEM Mini can use hardware control panels for high end workflows that take advantage of the hidden broadcast features in the switcher! TheåÊATEM 1åÊM/E Advanced Panel features the fast program/preview style with separate source buttons for both program and preview rows. GetåÊdirect access to all transitions automatically or manually using the t‰ÛÔbar. ForåÊaccurate control of the DVE the joystick provides X, YåÊpositioning with rotation setting DVE size. YouåÊalso get LCD menus to control features that don't have dedicated knobs and buttons. YouåÊcan even program and trigger Macros! Plus you can use ATEM 1åÊM/E Advanced Panel later if you upgrade to aåÊbigger ATEMåÊswitcher!
