Finishing in Davinci Resolve
The ATEM Mini Pro ISO is comparable to the ATEM Mini Pro but with the possibility to record up to five separate H.264 video streams in real time. That's all four HDMI inputs plus the Program output. In addition, a Davinci Resolve project is created so that the entire live production can be started in an instant Davinci Resolve Studio can be post-edited such as editing, color correction, audio post-processing, graphics and titles, etc. The files are stored on a USB memory card such as the Samsung T5.
Of course you can also use the HDMI inputs to connect images from a laptop or game console. For example, a PowerPoint presentation or images from a Game console can be mixed by you. The Built-in DVE (Digital Video Effects) makes it mo
equal to, for example, mix the image of the game with PiP (Picture in Picture) with the image of the presenter or gamer.
But the applications are unprecedented, such as:
- Live Sport Events
- e Sports Events
- Church services and funerals
- Stream Live Concerts
- Business Presentations via Skype or Zoom
- Training and education
For live streaming, the ATEM Mini Pro ISO has a USB output and acts like a Webcam, just like the Web Presenter. So you can stream directly to any platform that supports a webcam, and most are. But streaming via a streamkey and a network is also possible without the intervention of a computer.
This makes the ATEM Mini Pro compatible with almost all platforms. To this we count Youtube, Facebook Live, Zoom, Skype, Wirecast, the free Open Broadcaster Software (OBS), XSplit, and many others.
HDMI out and MultiView
Unlike the ATEM Mini, you can choose the signal from the HDMI output of the ATEM Mini Pro. On the front panel of the ATEM Mini Pro, you can choose one of four HDMI inputs. These are Program (PGM) or MultiView (M / V).
The Multiview shows the Preview and Program (PGM) side by side, below that the four HDMI inputs, and below that a row with media player source, audio levels and status indicators for recording and streaming.
If a program is selected then the output will be used as a signal for an additional screen or projector.
ATEM Software Control Panel
The ATEM Mini Pro ISO has considerably more functionality than achievable with the front panel. The ATEM Software Control Panel is an app for Windows or Mac OS that makes all the functions of the ATEM Mini Pro available. The computer with the ATEM Software Control Panel can be connected via USB or Ethernet. The latter makes it possible for several users to access the ATEM Mini Pro ISO at the same time, for example to load graphics of, for example, election results or a competition. Via a plug-in, graphics can be loaded directly from PhotoShop without first having to save them to the hard drive of the PC.
Live Stream over Ethernet
The ATEM Mini Pro ISO has a built-in hardware streaming engine for live streaming without the need for a computer. So direct internet via a router. This means that less equipment has to be carried with mobile applications. The hardware streaming engine also delivers a higher and more reliable image quality (fewer dropped frames, for example). Streaming to Facebook, YouTube and Twitch are among the possibilities. The Ethernet streaming service is easy to set up by choosing the platform and entering the obtained key of the platform. You can see how this works with Facebook, for example here .

The ATEM Mini Pro ISO lets you connect a total of four HDMI cameras with a resolution of up to 1920 × 1080 in 60i or 60p frames. HDMI cameras generally have a significantly better quality than standard web cam's due to better sensors and interchangeable lenses. Most cameras have HDMI out. More professional cameras have an SDI output. That signal can easily be converted with, for example, the Black Magic Micro Converter.
The connected cameras do not necessarily have to run in the same resolution or frame rate. All inputs are automatically synchronized and converted to the same preset output resolution of up to 1080p60.
The latest Blackmagic firmware Pocket Cinema Camera 4K en Pocket Cinema Camera 6K makes it possible to control it from the ATEM Mini Pro. This makes it possible to remotely control the lift, gain and gamma of the camera. Just like the iris, focus and, depending on the type of lens, the zoom.
The ATEM Mini Pro works with only HDMI cables. Both from the inputs to the ATEM and from the output to its HDMI. HDMI cables are not suitable for longer distances. Blackmagic Design itself does not recommend longer than 10 meters. Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Cameras (both 4K and 6K) can be controlled from the ATEM Mini Pro. For this it is necessary that the HDMI cable has an ethernet connection.
Socrates offers multiple cable lengths up to 10 meters which have been tested for ATEM Mini Pro in combination with the controllable Blackmagic Cinema Cameras. Above 10 meters, Socrates has HDMI fiber cables that have also been tested in combination with Blackmagic's pocket cameras.
When using a different type of camera such as camcorders or DSLR with HDMI output, it may have a smaller HDMI mini connection. There is one for this HDMI mini to HDMI female available to pair with a regular HDMI cable.
In addition to the four HDMI inputs, two 3.5mm stereo microphone inputs are available. For example, a standard microphone, Lavelier (tie clip microphone) etc. can be connected to this. Extremely useful for interviews, for example. Via the ATEM Software control you can mix the four cameras stereo and the two stereo microphone inputs, total 12 channels. The built-in Fairlight sound mixer with 6-channel parametric EQ, Compressor and Limiter.
