An affordable live production switcher with a 5-stream recording engine.
After the release of ATEM Mini Pro, Blackmagic Design announced the ATEM Mini Pro ISO and ATEM Streaming Bridge, which are sure to improve your live streaming capabilities.
The main difference between the ATEM Mini Pro and the ATEM Mini Pro ISO is the recording function. The ATEM Mini Pro ISO in an affordable live production switch that is equipped with a 5-stream recording engine, with which each video input can be recorded on USB sticks for later processing. The device records clean feeds of all inputs as well as the audio, graphics and DaVinci Resolve project file, so that you can quickly open the project and start editing.
The miniaturized control panel can connect up to 4 cameras via HDMI or computer. According to Blackmagic, all video sources are re-synchronized with the switcher regardless of the video standard, so that no assumptions have to be made with different video formats.
Like other ATEM Mini models, this version is streamed via an Ethernet connection. In addition, the device has an extended chroma button for blues or green screen work, an integrated audio mixer that supports limitation, compression and 6-band EQ, as well as graphic functions for titles, opening plates and logos.
Video feeds are recorded as H.264 .mp4 files with a quality of up to 70 Mbit / s in ATEM video standard with AAC audio. In addition, a single program output is recorded as a streaming quality setting as H.264 MP4 files with AAC audio.
The ATEM Mini Pro ISO costs $ 895, which is around $ 300 more than the ATEM Mini Pro.
The ATEM Streaming Bridge is a converter that decodes the live stream from any ATEM Mini Pro model and converts it back to SDI and HDMI video. So if you want to send an HDMI or SDI signal from the live switcher to another source, the ATEM Streaming Bridge is for you.
It works by taking the H.264 stream from the switcher and converting it back to SDI or HDMI. Blackmagic Design makes it as easy as plug & play. The ATEM Streaming Bridge is expected to arrive in August for around $ 245.
