The ATEM Mini Pro includes all the features found in ATEM Mini, plus more! You get recording directly to USB flash disks in H.264 plus direct streaming via the Ethernet to YouTube Live and more. There’s also a multiview with 4 cameras, media, preview and program plus the status of recording, streaming and audio.
Live Stream via Ethernet on ATEM Mini Pro
The ATEM Mini Pro model has a built-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. If you’re technically minded, you can even hack the detailed streaming profiles in the XML preference file and load new services.
Record Direct to USB Flash Disks with ATEM Mini Pro
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 directly upload to any online video site, such as YouTube and Vimeo. ATEM Mini Pro supports multiple disks when used with a USB hub or Blackmagic MultiDock, so when a disk fills recording can continue to a second disk for non-stop recording. Record settings and disk selection are set up in ATEM Software Control and there’s a record status view in the built-in multiview. You can even trigger recording on external Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Cameras!
Monitor Sources and Status with ATEM Mini Pro Multiview!
When doing larger live productions with multiple cameras, it’s very useful to see all your video sources at the same time on a single monitor. The ATEM Mini Pro model includes a professional multiview that lets you see all 4 video inputs, plus preview and program on a single 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 a status for recording, streaming and the Fairlight audio mixer!
Add Exciting Video Effects
One of the benefits of ATEM Mini 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. The auto button is a professional 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 a smooth transition between sources, and dip which fades via a colour during the transition. Or use fun DVE effects that move the image off-screen when transitioning between sources!
