With the new Atem Mini Pro Switcher Blackmagic Design extends the functions of its previous low-cost Mini Live Production Switchers Atem Mini. Besides the remote functions for the Pocket Cinema Camera 4K and 6K, the most important new feature is the H.264 encoding, which has now been moved into the switch itself.
With the integrated hardware encoding, the Atem Mini Pro gains more independence from the encoding that used to take place on the computer, which releases important performance resources on the computer, especially for mobile productions. Accordingly, the new Atem Mini Pro also has an Ethernet interface with which the encoded streams can be streamed live on YouTube.
Via USB-C interface, backup recordings can also be recorded on external USB hard disks. Should something go wrong with live streaming, the content can be uploaded later.
The new Blackmagic Atem Mini Pro has all the functionality of the previous Atem Mini, including 4 HDMI connections, Webcam Out, HDMI Out, Fairlight Audio Mixer functions, DVE, 2x audio inputs and more.
The RRP for new Blackmagic Design Atem Min Pro is 675,- Euro.
Blackmagic Design has not yet communicated a delivery date.
