The Blackmagic Design ATEM Mini Pro ISO is the latest version of their popular live production switcher, allowing users to record up to 5 separate H.264 video streams, in real time, while saving all audio files, media pool graphics and a DaVinci Resolve project file allowing for editing post broadcast.
Highlights from the July 30, 2020 Blackmagic Design Press release:
Blackmagic Design today 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!
“This new model of ATEM Mini is a true innovation in workflow. For the first time, live production has been fully integrated into a post production editing workflow. Not only that, but with Blackmagic RAW integration, we can use the ISO files recorded in the switcher, or the files recorded in the camera.” – Grant Petty, Blackmagic Design CE
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.
