The Blackmagic ATEM Mini is a new live video switcher with built-in streaming, recording and monitoring abilities.
The switcher can be used as a streaming device two separate ways — the USB output or an Ethernet cable. The USB output recognizes the ATEM Mini as a common webcam that is compatible with a range of video software such as Skype, Zoom, Periscope, and more. The ethernet cable uses the ATEM Mini Pro’s hardware streaming engine to cast to Youtube , Facebook, and Twitch in better quality.
BROADCAST TRANSITIONS AND FEATURES
ATEM Mini includes a wide range of broadcast quality 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.
ATEM Mini has an upstream Chroma Keyer plus an additional downstream linear keyer. The chroma keyer features a color picker to sample background colors for automatic generation of the key parameters . The Keyer can also be used for pattern and DVE keying.
