We’re rolling, and… action!

The ATEM Mini from Blackmagic Design is a compact video mixer that offers professional-quality multi-camera production in real time and delivers an impressive price-performance ratio. It has connections for up to four HDMI inputs (e.g. for digital cameras, computers, games consoles, and more) and two audio inputs in 3.5 mm jack format, making video production uncomplicated, and its operation is highly intuitive. Users can directly switch between the connected sources on the device, add picture-in-picture, transition, and chroma keying (better known as green screen and blue screen) effects, and even integrate their own graphics. The results can then be transferred to the user’s computer – which will recognise the ATEM Mini as a webcam – via the USB-C interface: The ideal setup for streaming to platforms like YouTube and Facebook as well as for innovative business presentations using Skype and Zoom.

Plug & play

Any device with an HDMI output – whether it’s a digital camera, computer, smart device, games console, or DVD/Blu-ray player – can be connected to the ATEM Mini without difficulty, and its ease of use is exemplary. Cuts and effect transitions can be made between the connected video sources using keys 1 to 4 on the user interface. The audio source can be set to match the selected HDMI source or permanently assigned – to the two additional 3.5 mm jack connections for line and microphone signals, for example. The integrated encoder automatically converts all incoming signals to H.265 and up to 1080 p and 60 fps, so the video format is always taken care of – if only things could always be that simple!

Stream your way to success

From online tutorials, concerts, music lessons, and dance classes to conferences, religious services, webinars, and innovative business presentations, the world of live streaming is multifaceted and opens the door to a wide audience. Anyone looking to make a name for themselves here will be hard pressed to pass on the ATEM Mini, which offers an impressive and affordable point of entry. High-quality presentations for YouTube, Facebook, Twitch, Zoom, Skype, and other platforms are no problem for the ATEM Mini, and it is also extremely useful as an offline tool, since the HDMI video output can be connected to a projector, thus giving your business presentations added flair.

About Blackmagic Design

Founded in 2001, the Australian company Blackmagic Design is one of the world's leading pioneers and manufacturers of creative video technology. Known for its outstanding codecs, Blackmagic offers professional technology at affordable prices. The manufacturer demonstrated this in 2002 with the release of the DeckLink capture card. This enabled the editing of uncompressed 10-bit video material on a Macintosh OS X system. The products of the ATEM Live series are used in major productions worldwide. Grant Petty, founder and CEO of the company, describes the guiding principle of his company itself as follows: "Blackmagic Design strives to make video of the highest quality affordable to everyone so that production and television can become a truly creative industry."

Mini or Mini Pro?

They may look almost identical, but there are decisive differences. The ATEM Mini provides an ideal solution for real-time live streaming and for giving presentations that comes at a budget-friendly price, while the Pro version adds several extra functions whose relevance is determined by the needs of the user. The USB-C connection means that video signals can be recorded direct to USB drive in H.264 format, and even to multiple hard drives simultaneously or successively by using a hub, making pre-production and backups child’s play. An integrated hardware streaming engine also makes streaming possible without a computer. The HDMI output can be controlled directly from the mixer and additionally provides a multiview for four cameras, previews for individual angles and media, and status information for recordings, streams, and audio.

Very Impressed
SamtheSoundtech 29.06.2020
I bought this for live streaming and to use my DSLR as a webcam with Skype/Zoom. I've been very impressed with this unit. It doesn't mention being able to cope with HDCP but I've been using it with my macbook via HDMI, my DSLR and my GoPro Hero8 and it's been working fantastically. I solid plus between this and the more expensive Blackmagic switchers is that it scales all of the I/O separately so you don't need to worry about all of your inputs being the same resolution or refresh rate (this is great if you're mixing laptop signals with cameras).
The only real downside to this over the 'pro' version is that it doesn't have a multiview, this really shouldn't be a problem if you're using static cameras.
If you're planning on using OBS or VMix with this then this version will be fine, however if you want to be able to stream straight from the switcher, I'd recommend the pro-version although you wouldn't get the flexibility of using OBS or VMix with this method.


At the price this is an amazing bit of kit!

Does exactly what I needed - at a very modest price. It's not long ago that technology like this cost thousands! It's well-built and does a solid job really well. I wish it had an on/off switch but that's a tiny point. Worth every penny. And the input format conversion/mapping is really useful and works well.


Absolute streaming game-changer
THoward 06.06.2022
In the year 2020, for reasons I'm still not fully aware of there was some new-found obsession with streaming every event. Expectations have changed and it's not likely to go away any time soon.
We bought two of these and they are absolutely incredible in terms of their power. The 4 HDMI inputs don't need to be the same resoution and frame rate, like they would on something like an ATEM TV Studio, so there's 4 input scalers and re-clocking on each input. This allowed us to re-use our varied collection of GoPro, 30fps and 25/50fps cameras, 720 and 1080 outputs, without worrying or investing in cameras that gave more control over output resolutions etc - the reality is a lot of us are re-purposing domestic cameras that don't have control that advanced.
For the power, either stream direct into Youtube via the web interface, or pair it with OBS on a PC and add title slides, overlays etc.


Awesome product but look also for the Pro one!
GerritBakker 23.12.2020
working for a week with the ATEM mini, awesome product easy to use and to work within my online meetings with MS Teams on a MAC to give Lectures. Had some thoughts about do I need the Pro version yes or no? Now returning the mini and buy the Pro version. So, think carefully which one will be the best choice, of course, there are more options to the Pro but, the multi-view option was the trigger to change to the Pro version.
