ATEM Mini switchers make it easy to create professional multi camera productions. Simply connect ATEM Mini and you can switch live up to 8 high quality video camera inputs for dramatically better quality images. Video cameras with HDMI outputs are better quality than webcams as they use higher quality lenses and have better low light sensitivity. All video sources will re-sync to the switcher if they operate at different video standards.
The built in DVE allows for picture in picture effects, ideal for commentary, with video effects too. All ATEM Mini models have USB that works like a webcam allowing you to use any streaming software while the ATEM Mini Pro and ATEM Mini Extreme models add live streaming and recording to USB disks. The ATEM Mini also has broadcast features for high end work.
Direct upload to any online video site, such as YouTube or Vimeo as the ATEM Mini Pro achieves long recordings in the same H.264 video files with AAC audio. Recording to multiple disks is also supported via a USB hub or Blackmagic MultiDock, so when a disk fills recording can continue to a second disk for non-stop recording.
ATEM Mini’s compact all in one design includes both a control panel as well as connections. The front panel includes easy to use buttons for selecting sources, video effects and transitions. The large source buttons allow you to use it by feel, so the presenter can even do the switching. There are also buttons for audio mixing. The ATEM Mini Pro and Extreme models feature buttons for record and streaming control, as well as output selection buttons that let you change the video output between cameras, program and multiview. On the rear panel there are HDMI connections for cameras or computers, extra microphone inputs, USB for webcam out plus an HDMI "aux" output for program video.
If you’re doing live production on location then the ATEM Mini Pro and Extreme models support connecting an Apple or Android phone to the USB port to use mobile data! The ATEM switcher will automatically detect when a phone is connected and switch its internet connection to use it, eliminating the need for changing settings.
Simply press any of the input buttons labelled by number on the front panel to cut between video sources. You can choose between cut or effects transitions by selecting the cut or auto buttons. Unlike cut, the auto button tells ATEM Mini to use a video effect when switching inputs. You can select from exciting transitions such as dissolve, or more dramatic effects such as dip to color, DVE squeeze and DVE push. Add a DVE effect for picture in picture effects with customized picture positions and background. The "media players" are a still store for titles and graphics that you can load via external software control.

ATEM Mini operates up to 60 frames per second for fast gameplay and you can use picture in picture for commentary. You can even download titles direct from Photoshop.
Education and Training
The ISO models save a DaVinci Resolve project file, with a single click you can open your live production as a video edit. All cuts, dissolves and media pool graphics will be loaded, allowing you to fine tune edit points or even completely replace shots. The DaVinci Resolve Sync Bin lets you select new shots via a multiview so it's very easy to use. You can even relink to Blackmagic RAW camera files for adding professional color correction and finishing in Ultra HD.
Connect desktop and lapel microphones using two independent 3.5mm stereo audio inputs. 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, both host and guest can have lapel microphones connected when doing interviews.
Each of the HDMI inputs feature their own dedicated standards converter. That means ATEM Mini will automatically convert 1080p, 1080i and 720p sources to the switcher video standard. The HDMI outputs are a true "aux" output so you can clean switch each HDMI input to the output. You can even "direct" switch input 1 to the HDMI output for low latency eSport productions. Plus the ATEM Mini Extreme models support 2 low latency direct loops. On the more powerful ATEM Mini Pro and ATEM Mini Extreme models, the HDMI output can be selected to display a full Multiview.
ATEM Mini is perfect for training in broadcast as it has the same features as switchers in high end broadcast studios. You get an ATEM Advanced Chroma Key, Fairlight audio mixer, DVE, still store for graphics and much more! Simply run the free ATEM Software Control app on Mac or Windows while connected via USB or Ethernet to access the extended features of the ATEM Mini. With some experimentation you can learn how to produce broadcast quality live production.
The ATEM Software Control app unlocks the hidden power of ATEM Mini and allows access to every feature in the switcher.
The built in "media pool" allows the loading of up to 20 separate broadcast quality RGBA graphics for titles, opening plates and logos.
The chroma keyer is incredibly powerful and features a color picker to sample background colors for automatic generation of the key parameters.
Although ATEM Mini works in "cut bus" mode when first purchased, it can also be changed to "program/preview" style operation, which is the way large broadcasters use live production switchers. Cut bus switching is easy and selecting any input will instantly switch to that source.
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. 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.
With a built in Fairlight audio mixer, ATEM Mini makes it possible to do complex live sound mixing. The internal mixer features enough channels for each HDMI input so you can mix audio from all sources.
The ATEM Streaming Bridge is a video converter that lets you receive a H.264 stream from any ATEM Mini Pro or ATEM Mini Extreme and convert it back to SDI and HDMI video. This means you can send video to remote locations around your local Ethernet network, or via the internet globally.
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K and 6K models can work as studio cameras with control sent via the HDMI connection to ATEM Mini. That means you can control the camera settings as well as the camera’s color corrector from ATEM Software Control.
