You can even connect to a computer to present PowerPoint slides or add a gaming console. The built in DVE allows exciting picture in picture effects, perfect for live commentary! There’s loads of video effects too! To live stream, ATEM Mini has a USB output that works like a webcam, so you can connect to any video software. There’s also HDMI video out for projectors! Microphone inputs allow high quality desktop and lapel mics for interviews and presentations. ATEM Mini even has secret broadcast features built in so it can do high end work!
Faster Video Production Plus Live Streaming
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 a 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, 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 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’s 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 of your program.
Easy to Use and Fast to Learn!
ATEM Mini is very easy to use, as you simply press any of the input buttons labelled 1 to 4 on the front panel to change or cut between video sources. You can choose between cut transitions or effects transitions by selecting the cut or auto buttons on the panel. Unlike cut, the auto button tells ATEM Mini to use a selected video effect when switching between inputs. You can select from exciting transitions such as a commonly used dissolve, or more dramatic effects such as dip to color, DVE squeeze and DVE push. The DVE is perfect for picture in picture effects and you can instantly set up different picture positions from the buttons on the control panel. There is even a still store for titles and graphics accessible via external software control.
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 are dramatically better quality than simple webcam cameras as they use higher quality lenses plus have much better low light sensitivity. All connected sources will re‑sync to the switcher if they operate at different video standards, which means all inputs just work and you can handle unknown equipment if you are visiting new venues or locations. Because cameras with HDMI often support interchangeable lenses, you can change to wide angles lenses for wide shots and zoom lenses for closeups. Imagine using the low light capability of professional cameras for theater production and music videos!
Outputs to HDMI Video and USB Webcam!
To ensure the maximum compatibility possible, ATEM Mini features a USB connection that operates as a simple webcam source. That means you can plug in and instantly get working with any video software. The software is tricked into thinking the ATEM Mini is a common webcam, but it’s really a live production switcher! That guarantees full compatibility with all software in full resolution 1080HD quality. Choose any software you like, such as Open Broadcaster for live streaming, or Skype for point to point presentations. ATEM Mini works with software and platforms such as Open Broadcaster, XSplit Broadcaster, YouTube Live, Facebook Live, Skype, Twitch TV, Periscope, Livestream, Wirecast and more!
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 also 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 fade which does a smooth transition between sources and dip which fades via a color during the transition. Or use fun DVE effects that move the image off screen when transitioning between sources!
Record to Video for YouTube Uploads
The HDMI program output is perfect for connecting ATEM Mini into an external recorder or monitor! supports recorders such as the HyperDeck Studio Mini and Blackmagic Video Assist. You get a high quality output with switcher program video, plus live audio from the internal audio mixer. The HDMI output can even be connected to video projectors in large venues. If you connect the ATEM Software Panel you can even change the HDMI output direct from any of the video inputs. There’s also a low latency setting allowing output of connected gaming consoles on the HDMI output. If you enable broadcast style mix effects switching, the HDMI output can be used to preview sources before a transition.
Work with Professional Microphones
With two independent 3.5mm stereo audio inputs, you can connect desktop and lapel microphones. You can even connect a music 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 the guest both have lapel microphones when doing interviews. All audio inputs to ATEM Mini include buttons on the panel for adjusting audio level and enabling inputs into the audio mixer. ATEM Mini features a full 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 audio sources.
Secret Broadcast Features Built In!
ATEM Mini has an easy to use front panel, however it’s also hiding very powerful broadcast features, allowing a true broadcast production workflow. If you are interested in a career in the television industry, then ATEM Mini is perfect for training as it has the same features as switchers in high end broadcast studios. You get a full ATEM Advanced Chroma Key, a Fairlight audio mixer, full DVE, still store for graphics and much more! Simply run the free ATEM Software Control app on Mac or Windows while connecting via USB or Ethernet to access the extended features of the ATEM Mini. With a little experimentation you can learn how to produce broadcast quality live production. Only ATEM Mini is a true broadcast switcher hidden in a tiny and affordable design!
Includes Free ATEM Software Control Panel
The ATEM Software Control app unlocks the hidden power of the ATEM Mini as you get total control over the switcher features, plus the software is included free for Mac and Windows! ATEM Software Control features a visual switcher user interface with parameter palettes for making quick adjustments. Although you can normally connect via USB, if you connect using Ethernet it’s possible for multiple users to connect to ATEM Mini using separate copies of ATEM Software Control on different computers! The software lets you access full audio mixing with effects, load still frames and even advanced macro programming! You can save the switcher state as XML files! If you need clip playback, you can even control HyperDeck disk recorders via Ethernet.
DVE for Picture in Picture, Transitions and Effects
Mini features a full HD digital video effects processor, commonly referred to as a “DVE”, that allows picture in picture effects and DVE transitions. The DVE lets you create professional picture in picture effects with customizable 3D borders, shadows and lighting. The image quality is the same as high end ATEM model switchers and the DVE supports position, resize and scale, all in real time. The DVE can also be used to create amazing transitions with 8 different DVE squeeze and DVE push effects for adding excitement to your programming. The DVE features a “fly key” so you can use it with custom graphics to create graphic wipe transitions! ATEM Mini includes a wide range of broadcast quality HD native transitions such as mix, dip, wipe and more. All transitions can be customized by adjusting parameters such as duration, border color, border width, position and direction. You can also use the DVE in transitions, allowing a graphic to be moved over the wipe edge which is called a graphic wipe, and is used in sports programming. To eliminate errors, ATEM Mini has a preview transition feature so you can check your transitions before putting them to air!
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!
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 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!
ATEM Mini features 4 HDMI inputs and has an intuitive, easy to use design that makes it possible for anyone to live stream multi camera productions online via services and software such as YouTube Facebook Live or even Skype. Simply connect 4 high quality HDMI inputs that can be used for live switching cameras, computers or even game consoles. You get a built in DVE for exciting picture in picture effects, broadcast quality transitions, upstream keyers for removing blue and green screen background, a downstream keyer for superimposing custom graphics, audio inputs a mixer, and more. To stream, ATEM Mini also has a USB output that works like a webcam, so you can connect to any video software. There’s also HDMI video out for projectors.
