Blackmagic Design recently announced ATEM Mini Pro ISO, a new low cost live production switcher with a new 5 stream recording engine that allows all video inputs to be recorded allowing a live production to be edited after the event. This allows users to get a clean feed of all inputs and use edit software multi-cam features for later editing. ATEM Mini Pro ISO also records all audio files, media pool graphics and a DaVinci Resolve project file, so a live production can be opened and edited with a single click!


ATEM Mini switchers make it easy to create professional multi camera productions for live streaming to YouTube and innovative business presentations using Skype or Zoom. Simply connect ATEM Mini and customers can switch live between 4 high quality video camera inputs for dramatically better quality images. Or connect a computer for PowerPoint slides or gaming consoles. The built in DVE allows exciting picture in picture effects, perfect for commentary.

There are loads of video effects too. All ATEM Mini models have USB that works like a webcam so customers 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 allow 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 includes easy to use buttons for selecting sources, video effects and transitions. On the ATEM Mini Pro model customers also get buttons for record and streaming control as well as output selection buttons that let customers 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.

This model adds recording of up to 5 separate H.264 video streams in real time. That’s a clean feed of all inputs and plus the live program. A DaVinci Resolve project file is also saved so customers can open their live production to adjust edits, change shots, remix audio and adds colour correction.

The ATEM Mini Pro ISO model lets customers edit their live event because 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. Imagine re-editing their show with new colour grades, effects and graphics. Even the audio sources are all recorded so customers can professionally remix their audio.

The ATEM Mini Pro ISO model can also save a DaVinci Resolve project file, so with a single click, customers can open their live production as a video edit. All cuts, dissolves and media pool graphics will be loaded. This means customers can fine tune edit points or even completely replace shots. The DaVinci Resolve Sync Bin lets customers select new shots via a multiview so it’s very easy to use. Customers can even relink to Blackmagic RAW camera files for adding professional colour correction and finishing in Ultra HD.

There’s never been a switcher that’s easier to use, as customers simply press any of the input buttons labelled 1 to 4 on the front panel to cut between video sources. Customers can choose between cut or effects transitions by selecting the cut or auto buttons. Unlike cut, the auto button tells ATEM Mini to use a video effect when switching inputs. Customers can select from exciting transitions such as dissolve, or more dramatic effects such as dip to colour, DVE squeeze and DVE push. The DVE is perfect for picture in picture effects and customers can instantly set up different picture positions.

With 4 independent HDMI inputs, customers can connect up to 4 high quality video cameras. All video sources will re-sync to the switcher if they operate at different video standards so customers don’t have to worry about connecting video devices as they all just work. Imagine taking advantage of the low light capability of better cameras for theater production, weddings, school concerts and music videos.

    A good switcher for the price

    We are using it and it is good however we are upgrading to the pro, the extra $300 is well spent. We will be keeping the mini pro as a backup. It is not as flexible as the pro in things like picture in picture and the pro has a much nicer presentation on the TV which is a must for either one. Understand, you need a PC, a TV (about 28 inch or so is nice), and the computer must have a wired Ethernet port (this can be a USB ethernet adapter) with either the mini or the pro. My biggest negatives on the two units is the lack of being able to input a USB camera without adapters, the mini does not have a headphone jack – not sure about the pro, monitoring the audio is essential to me – and a program like OBS is needed to operate it – note that the OBS has only one video and one audio input that makes OBS a set up, start it, and then only look at it to start and stop streaming and recording. We are also using restream to do FB and YT.

    Great value and very versatile

    Bought this to enable recording and potential streaming of local community group meetings. If used with the optional (free) control software you can easily configure additional features such as source keying, Picture in Picture etc. It performs really well, boots very quickly and I can’t fault the video quality or latency.Only gripes are that you need to use the software to load different still images into the media player, and a second HDMI output would be really useful. I know both these features are available on the Extreme model, but this is significantly more expensive.

    I used a video switcher years ago in my business and I liked it, but it had a few technical problems. This switcher is amazing in what it does! Two thumbs up! 


  11. Matt

    Live streaming is a breeze

    This unit is just awesome! I keep finding new ways to use it. I was able to hook up two separate hard drives to it and it compress the video files. Live streaming for multiple events has become so simple thanks to this compact unit.

    Not all SSD’s work.

    Be careful when choosing your SSD for direct recording. Not all SSD’s work (including Samsung). After some research I purchased the SanDisk SDSSDE60-500G-G25 and this worked for me.

    Small and mighty

    Impressive price, size and features.

    Pros:Great machine, it does a lot. I’m looking forward to mastering all that it can do.Cons:None.As a beginner using an ATEM Mini – I would like to mention that I also purchased:4 x HDMI leads – for my 4 HDMI inputs1 x USB-C to a USB-A Adapter – to attach my hard drive or thumb drive to – for recording from my ATEM Mini Pro1 x USB-C to a USB-A cable – to connect my ATEM Mini Pro to my laptop


  19. James E Murrell

    Worth every penny.

    This has been a huge addition to my studio. Couple it will a feelwod 7” monitor and you are ready to go.

  20. David.W.

    Replaces literally thousands of dollars of equipment using the latest technology.

    It is an absolute MUST HAVE for any serious live streamer or vlogger. Go to YouTube and look at the review and demo videos of this.


  21. Dennis L. Jones

    Your church needs this!

    Easy setup! A great upgrade to our church-streaming system. Big improvement in both video and audio. The mini pro’s hardware Encoder eased the work of our CPU, eliminating and dropped frames

    best little small studio video switcher with tons of features

    I’ve have been using this video switcher for almost 8 months now with weekly live stream broadcast to Youtube LiveThis box has everything one needs to do a live stream – title keying, audio insert, 4 hdmi cam switchingI even did both Zoom and Youtube live – using the usb as a webcam into another PC for ZoomThe only draw back is there isn’t any multiview if you need to use the hdmi output as another program view for say – audience in the studio, but I have been able to just use the Blackmagic Design PC control panel to do my switching and just use the LCDs on the camera to see what preview I have goingI also have the Blackmagic Studio HD – which I also use for other studio work – but this little box with h.264 encoding and usb is so much easy to use in one tiny form factor
