If you were considering the purchase of either the ATEM Mini Pro or ATEM Mini Pro ISO recently, you’re in luck! Blackmagic Design has just announced that both live production switchers are now with reduced prices. The ATEM Mini Pro will set you back just $495, whereas the ATEM Mini Pro ISO model becomes $795.
This is a reduction of $100 for both models making live production more affordable for anyone than ever before. In a nutshell, ATEM Mini switchers make it easy to create professional multi-camera productions for live streaming to YouTube, Facebook, Twitch TV, and more.
All ATEM Mini models have a USB port that allows them to work like a webcam so one can use any streaming software while the ATEM Mini Pro model adds live streaming and recording to USB disks. There’s also HDMI out for projectors. Microphone inputs, on the other hand, allow connecting high-quality desktop and lapel mics for interviews and presentations.
ATEM Mini’s compact all-in-one design includes both a control panel as well as connections. The front panel offers easy to use buttons for selecting sources, video effects, and transitions.
On the ATEM Mini Pro model, you also get 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.
With the ATEM Mini Pro ISO model you can edit your live event since it can record 5 video streams, including clean feeds of all inputs and the program recording, all at the same time. Media pool images used are also saved with the video files. The video files include metadata tags such as synced timecode and camera numbers.
The ATEM Mini Pro ISO model can also save a DaVinci Resolve project file, so with a single click, you can open your live production as a video edit. All cuts, dissolves and media pool graphics will be loaded.
This means you can fine tune edit points or even completely replace shots. The DaVinci Resolve Sync Bin enables selecting new shots via a multiview. You can even relink to Blackmagic RAW camera files for adding professional color correction and finishing in Ultra HD.
ATEM Mini Pro and ATEM Mini Pro ISO are available now starting from $495 from Blackmagic Design resellers worldwide.
