Blackmagic - ATEM Mini
Faster Video Production
Live production is the fastest way to complete a finished program, plus you can stream it to a live global audience via YouTube at the same time. The USB webcam output of ATEM Mini connects to any computer and looks just like a built in webcam so all streaming software for social media platforms work! With up to 4 HDMI inputs you can set up multiple camera angles such as wide shots along with independent close ups of each person in the performance. Or you can connect to a computer with PowerPoint slide show, video clip playback, web sites or gaming consoles. All switching is in real time so you can live stream to any social media platform such as YouTube, Facebook, and many more!
Self Contained Broadcast Quality
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 via an HDMI video out as well as a USB for webcam output. The front panel buttons are large and easy to use by feel, so it is even possible to use the switcher while presenting! You also get audio mixer buttons for live audio mixing.The fade to black button "FTB" lets you fade down at the end
Upgrade to the Power of an ATEM Hardware Panel
With Ethernet built in, ATEM Mini can take advantage of the wide range of ATEM control panels, making possible high end workflows that take advantage of the hidden broadcast features in the switcher! ATEM hardware control panels feature a fast program/preview style which is the industry standard for switcher control. All transitions have direct access buttons and a bar is included when performing manual blending of transitions. For accurate control of the DVE, a joystick provides X, Y positioning and rotate for DVE size. Then you can use the LCD menus to control features that don't have dedicated knobs and buttons. You can even set up and trigger Macros right from the panel! Upgrading the ATEM Mini with a professional control panel such as the ATEM 1 M/E Advanced Panel means you are able to use professional techniques and you'll never be limited creatively!
Automatically Convert HDMI Input Formats
You get 4 independent HDMI inputs, with each input featuring its own dedicated up and cross converter. That means ATEM Mini will automatically convert 1080p, 1080i and 720p sources to the video standard of the switcher! By default the switcher will set its video standard automatically, however you can also change the switcher to a specific video standard, to ensure compliance with local broadcast standards. The HDMI output is a true "aux" output so you can clean switch each of the 4 HDMI inputs or the program feed to this output. You can even "direct" switch input 1 to the HDMI output for low latency for eSport. If you select broadcast style mix effects switching, you can also output a preview feed, allowing verification of the source before transitioning to it.
Built In Professional Audio Mixer with 6 Band EQ, Compressor and Limiter
With a built in Fairlight audio mixer, the ATEM Mini makes it possible to do extremely complex live sound mixing. The internal mixer features a total of 12 channels so you get the ability to mix audio from all sources! 8 mixer channels are de-embedded from the HDMI inputs, while an extra two stereo audio channels are input via the 3.5mm microphone connections on the rear panel. Each input channel features the highest quality 6 band parametric EQ and compressor, limiter, expander and noise gate as well as full panning. You can even set up the software to auto mix between inputs as you switch "AFV" or to live mix multiple sources together all at once. All this audio power can be controlled via the ATEM Software Control app, or you can add a Mackie compatible panel or even a massive Fairlight Audio Console!
Includes New ATEM Advanced Chroma Key
For news or on-set presentation work, ATEM Mini is the perfect choice as it features an ATEM Advanced Chroma Key for high quality chroma or luminance keying, plus an additional downstream linear keyer! The chroma keyer is incredibly powerful and features a color picker to sample background colors for automatic generation of the key parameters. You get precise controls for edge and flare, and there is even a foreground color corrector so you can match the "look" of the foreground layer to the background layer making seamless compositions possible. The keyer can also be used for pattern and DVE keying allowing incredible versatility. You can even use it for title overlays simply by using PowerPoint or other software with a green or blue background and the keyer will knock out the green and make the background transparent
Built‑in Graphics with Photoshop Plug‑In
The built in "media pool" allows loading of up to 20 separate broadcast quality RGBA graphics for titles, opening plates and logos. A single media player is used to output the selected graphic so it appears as an extra internal video input, meaning you don’t have to waste any of the physical HDMI video inputs for graphics. You can even use still frames for complex effects such as graphic wipes. You can easily manage the still store graphic using the included ATEM Software Control app, or you can download directly from Photoshop software using the ATEM Photoshop plug‑in. ATEM Mini can even grab stills from the video output and add them to the internal media pool. The Photoshop Plug‑in is perfect for graphics that need to change often, such as scoreboards, as you can update the text and download directly into the switcher, allowing graphics to get on‑air fast!
