Video mixer for streaming on YouTube, Facebook, Skype, TwitchTV, Zoom and similar platforms
The ATEM Mini makes it easy to broadcast live, using multiple cameras, on YouTube, as well as to make presentations using Skype or Zoom. Simply connect the cameras to the mixer to switch between them with exceptional image quality, or connect a computer to display PowerPoint presentations, or to a game console. Integrated digital effects allow the use of PiPs, which are ideal for commenting, and include a host of additional tools. They also have a USB port to recognize it as a webcam, so it is compatible with any Internet broadcast program. In addition, the ATEM Mini Pro provides the ability to record content directly to USB drives.
The compact size of the ATEM Mini Pro ISO includes the control panel and the various connections. The front panel has buttons to switch between sources and choose effects and transitions. The font buttons are sized to be intuitive, so the same person who is presenting can switch between the different signals. Audio mixing is also possible. The ATEM Mini Pro has buttons that control recording and internet streaming. On the back of the device are HDMI connections for cameras or computers, inputs for 2 microphones, a USB port that works as a webcam and an HDMI output that can be assigned as an auxiliary bus (selecting any of the 4 inputs), as a PGM output or as a multiviewer output.
The ATEM Mini Pro ISO model allows you to record up to five individual signals in H.264 format, i.e. the program and all connected sources. In addition, a DaVinci Resolve project file is created, which provides the possibility of editing the production, e.g. to change takes, re-mix the audio, or color-code the images, making it easy to edit live broadcast events. The images in the media panel used in production are also saved together with the recordings in files that include metadata such as time code and camera number. This provides the possibility to make new color adjustments or add effects and graphics. Importantly, audio sources are also recorded, allowing for professional mixing.
This model allows you to create a DaVinci Resolve project file to edit your production with one click. This includes all cuts, dissolves, and graphics used during production. This way, you can adjust the duration of the shots or replace them completely. And the DaVinci Resolve sync tray gives you the opportunity to select new shots via the viewer, so it's very easy to use. You can even re-link your camera's Blackmagic RAW files for professional color matching and finish your project in UHD definition.
The HDMI inputs allow up to four video cameras to be connected. Cameras with this type of output offer better results, as they not only provide the ability to use high-end lenses, but also perform better in low light conditions. All sources will resynchronize with the mixer if they work in different formats, so there's nothing to worry about. At the same time, since these cameras support different types of lenses, it is possible to use different versions for general shots or close-ups. In addition, you can use their performance in low light conditions for theatre productions, weddings, school concerts or video clips.
In order to guarantee the widest compatibility, the USB port of the ATEM Mini models allows it to be detected as a webcam by the programs used in the broadcasting of contents. This not only provides the possibility of transmitting images in HD 1080 resolution, but also of using a wide variety of applications and platforms, such as Open Broadcaster, XSplit Broadcaster, YouTube Live, Facebook Live, Skype, Zoom, Twitch TV, Periscope, Livestream and Wirecast.
The ATEM Mini Pro includes an Ethernet connection that allows live broadcasting on YouTube, Facebook and Twitch with better quality, without skipping frames and through a much simpler configuration. Simply select the broadcast service and enter the key to start the broadcast. The ATEM Software Control program has panels for the configuration and status of the transmission, and the latter also appears in the simultaneous viewing windows. It is very easy to interpret, since the data frequency indicator shows the Internet speed required for the selected format. It is also possible to modify the transmission profiles detailed in the preference XML file and to load additional services. It also offers the possibility of directly recording long-lasting H.264 files with ACC audio on USB flash drives for later uploading to sites such as YouTube and Vimeo. It also allows you to use various storage media via a USB adapter or a Blackmagic MultiDock device. When one is full, recording automatically continues on the next. The recording settings and choice of units are configured in the ATEM Software Control program. In turn, the recording status will appear in the simultaneous display windows. Even if you have a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera connected, you can activate recording from the mixer.
For more professional working dynamics, you can control the cameras remotely from the ATEM Mini mixers. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K and 6K can be used as studio cameras because they can be controlled via the HDMI connection. This offers the opportunity to access camera settings and the colour editor from the ATEM Software Control program. The flexibility of being able to change the ISO value and tone, to adjust the aperture of the aperture, the focus and the focal length, makes it possible for the person in charge of the camera to concentrate completely on the shot. There are two types of control interfaces, one is the traditional CCU and the other is the DaVinci integrated into the cameras, which allows you to give a cinematic style to live productions.
