SWITCHER BLACKMAGIC DESIGN ATEM MINI HDMI
Blackmagic Design ATEM Mini HDMI LiveStream Console: Designed for multi-camera live streaming, the compact Blackmagic Design ATEM Mini offers a four-input live production switcher with an integrated control panel. The four HDMI inputs are located on the back of the console and input video up to 1080p60.
It also has an HDMI output for an external projector or monitor, a USB Type-C output for streaming up to 1080p60 video to a computer, and an RJ45 10/100 Ethernet port for system management, remote control, and updates.
Additionally, it features easy-to-see backlit control buttons to allow selection of camera inputs, control transitions, keyers, settings, and the DVE. The ATEM Mini features up and down keyers, an advanced chroma keyer, two linear/luma keyers, a DVE transition keyer, a pattern generator, and two color generators.
On the other hand, we find a media player support for fill and key images, which supports up to 20 still images in PNG, TGA, BMP, JPEG and TIFF formats. The HDMI output supports a minimum resolution of 1366 x 768 to monitor your stream. It is also compatible with the ATEM Software Control Panel via Ethernet.
Production and live broadcast
Live production is the fastest way to complete a finished show, plus you can stream it to a global audience live on YouTube at the same time. ATEM Mini's USB webcam output plugs into any computer and looks just like a built-in webcam, so all streaming software for social media platforms works. With up to 4 HDMI inputs, you can set up multiple camera angles, such as wide shots, along with separate close-ups of each person in the performance. Or you can connect to a computer with a PowerPoint slideshow, video clip playback, websites, or game consoles. All changes are done in real time so you can stream live to any social media platform like YouTube, Facebook, TwitchTV and many more!
Self-Contained Broadcast Quality Switcher
ATEM Mini features a compact control panel based design with all video, audio and control connections on the rear panel. The front panel includes easy-to-use buttons for selecting sources, adjusting audio inputs, as well as selecting video effects and transitions. The rear panel includes HDMI inputs for connecting cameras or computers, plus additional microphone inputs. The ATEM Mini program is output through an HDMI video output and a USB for webcam output. The front panel buttons are large and easy to use, so it's even possible to use the switcher while performing. You also get audio mixer buttons for live audio mixing. The "FTB" fade to black button allows you to fade out at the end of your program.
Easy to use and quick to learn
ATEM Mini is very easy to use as you simply press any of the input buttons labeled 1-4 on the front panel to switch or cut between video sources. You can choose between cut transitions or effect transitions by selecting the cut or auto buttons on the panel. Unlike cut, the auto button tells the ATEM Mini to use a selected video effect when switching between inputs. You can select between exciting transitions, like a commonly used dissolve, or more dramatic effects, like color dip, DVE squeeze, and DVE push. The DVE is perfect for picture-in-picture effects and you can instantly set different picture positions from the buttons on the control panel. There's even a title and graphics store that can be accessed via external software control.
Broadcast live interviews
ATEM Mini is perfect for interviews as you can connect multiple cameras for close-ups of the host, interviewee and panoramic shots, plus the ATEM Mini is so small the host can even switch in small studios. You can record via HDMI output or live stream using Open Broadcaster software!
Connect up to 4 independent cameras
With 4 independent HDMI inputs, you can connect up to 4 high-quality consumer video cameras. Video cameras with HDMI outputs have dramatically better quality than simple webcam cameras as they use higher quality lenses and have much better low light sensitivity. All connected sources will resynchronize with the switcher if they're running different video standards, meaning all inputs just work and you can handle unfamiliar equipment if you're visiting new places or locations.
Because cameras with HDMI often support interchangeable lenses, you can switch to wide-angle lenses for wide shots and zoom lenses for close-ups.
