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. All switching is in real time so you can live stream to any social media platform such as YouTube, Facebook, TwitchTV and many more.
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.
True Broadcast Style Mix Effects Switching
Although ATEM Mini works in "cut bus" mode when first purchased, it can also be changed to "mix effects" style operation, which is the most popular way large broadcasters use live production switchers. Cut bus switching is easy and selecting any input will instantly switch to that source. However if you want to operate ATEM Mini in a more professional way, then you can change the switcher to mix effects using the ATEM Software Control app. Mix effects operation allows a source to be selected but it won't be instantly put on air until you press the cut or auto buttons. That 2 step process means fewer mistakes because you can select the correct source before putting it to air. Mix effects operation means you can use any switcher in television stations as they work the same way.
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!
