Blackmagic Design adds hardware and software

The Atem Mini Pro offers support for recording the stream direct to USB flash disks in H.264

Created with a similar feature set as the Atem Mini, the Atem Mini Pro is a new live production switcher with added features for recording, streaming and monitoring. Blackmagic Design has added a hardware streaming engine which allows direct streaming via its Ethernet connection to YouTube Live, Facebook and Twitch. A miniaturised control panel-based design offers support for recording the stream direct to USB flash disks in H.264 in addition to multiple disks for continuous recording. The new model integrates a multiview on the HDMI video output for monitoring all inputs on a single screen.

Equipped with four independent HDMI inputs, video sources resync to the switcher if they operate at different video standards. Each HDMI input features a dedicated standards converter for automatically changing 1080p, 1080i and 720p sources to the video standard of the switcher. A USB connection operates as a simple webcam source for use with any video software. Two 3.5mm stereo audio inputs provide connections to desktop and lapel microphones. The audio sources can be further processed by the built-in limiter, compressor and six-band EQ, in addition to being routed to the separately connected Fairlight audio mixer.

A further new addition from Blackmagic is the Teranex Mini SDI to DisplayPort 8K HDR, an advanced 8K DisplayPort monitoring solution for DisplayPort monitors such as the new Apple Pro Display XDR. Dual on-screen scope overlays, HDR, scaled and pixel-by-pixel modes and 33-point 3D LUTs come as standard. The front panel includes controls and a colour display for monitoring the video input, audio meters and video standard indication. The Pro Display XDR panel can be used to control display settings, such as switching reference modes and adjusting brightness.

An integrated scaler ensures the video input standard is scaled to the native resolution of the connected DisplayPort monitor, although unscaled HD or 4K content can be viewed in pixel-by-pixel mode. For desktop or rack-mounted use, the rear panel of the 8K DisplayPort is further equipped with a USB-C connector, Quad Link 12G-SDI for HD and Ultra HD for up to 8K formats.

Blackmagic Camera Update 6.9 now provides a connection for the 4K and 6K Pocket Cinema Camera models to the Atem Mini switcher. The software update controls the video lens and tally light parameters of up to four cameras via the HDMI video connection. Enhancements include up to 25600 ISO for low light performance, Blackmagic RAW recording and a built-in 5-inch touchscreen for accurate focusing in 6K.

With the addition of software update v7.1, the HyperDeck Studio Mini broadcast recorders now include a H.264 codec that supports true interlaced HD formats, a new AAC audio codec for uploading files direct to YouTube, Ethernet transfers of 110MB/s and support for longer duration in a single file of at least three hours. Designed to be portable, the miniaturised broadcast deck incorporates H.264, ProRes or DNx codecs for recording to SD or UHS-II card media in either QuickTime or MXF file formats. Other features include 6G-SDI for all formats up to 2160p30, HDMI for monitoring, dual SD card slots for non-stop recording and a built-in sync generator for daisy-chaining and synchronising multiple decks together.
