Blackmagic has introduced new ATEM Mini Extreme and Extreme ISO live production switchers, which are larger versions of ATEM Mini. The new 1 M/E switchers all have the same functions, but there are a few exceptions.

ATEM Mini Extreme ISO can record all 8 inputs and programs, for a total of 9 data streams (!). 4 independent chroma keyers allow each camera to be set up virtually, up to 4 cameras can be set. The built-in "media pool" can load up to 20 RGBA graphics titles, logos, etc., all broadcast quality is the same.

The ATEM Software Control application has all the functions of a real-time switcher and control hardware. It connects via USB, but Blackmagic says that Ethernet can allow multiple users on different computers to control it.

You will be able to control the camera's aperture, shutter speed, focus, etc. You can also set different angles. The new switcher has a large number of advanced features that can perform real-time broadcast and real-time streaming without causing financial losses.

The new ATEM Mini Extreme switcher has multiple applications, including live sports, news, announcements (virtual and face-to-face), virtual meetings on Zoom, Skype or Microsoft Teams, real-time games and more. 

After broadcasting on ATEM Mini Extreme ISO, it will save a DaVinci Resolve project file, which can be easily opened in its famous NLE. The project will contain each cut, graphics, dissolve, etc., for further editing or replacement shots. 

In addition, the ATEM series has a firmware update of version 8.6, which adds support for mobile device streaming and automatic data rate switching.

In view of all the new features, the price of the ATEM Mini Extreme switch is quite low, at US$995. Extreme ISO is only $1,295. There are more features, so make sure you visit
