The Blackmagic Design ATEM SDI Extreme ISO Switcher is an 8-input live production switcher for live streaming. It features an integrated control panel and advanced broadcast features. In addition to live streaming using RTMP protocols, you can also output your program as if it was a webcam over USB. The switcher's ISO label means you can individually record each of the eight input videos as an MP4, as well as the program output via one of the USB-C ports. The switcher automatically generates a DaVinci Resolve project file, so you can clean it up and make changes later.

Each input has discrete frame rate and format converters, and it supports re-syncing for seamless switching between a variety of pro and consumer cameras, game consoles, and computer feeds.
Switch, add effects, color grade, and key in real time using the control surface's buttons or the software control panel. CCU functions are available for controlling Blackmagic Studio and URSA Mini/Broadcast/Micro Studio cameras from the switcher. The ATEM Mini Extreme ISO supports up to nine layers, with four upstream and two downstream keyers, up to four chroma keyers, up to four linear keyers, two DVE with borders and drop shadow, five pattern generators, and two color generators. Designed for live streaming or webcam, the Mini Extreme ISO has four 3G-SDI outputs to feed monitors and supports up to 16-screen multiview.
Stream Live
Live stream to YouTube, Facebook Live, Skype, Twitch, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and other platforms that support RTMP protocols.
Control Interface
The front panel includes easy-to-use buttons for selecting sources, video effects, and transitions. The source buttons are large, allowing you to operate them by feel. Included on the ATEM Extreme ISO are buttons for audio mixing, recording, and streaming control as well as output selection buttons that let you change the video output between cameras, program, and multiview. On the rear panel, there are 3G-SDI connections for cameras or computers, extra microphone inputs, USB for webcam out, plus 4 x 3G-SDI "AUX" outputs for program video.
Output
You can output using the Ethernet connection to your network or use the USB-C output to have your switched show recognized as a webcam input by virtually any video software such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype, Open Broadcaster, XSplit Broadcaster, and others.
4G and 5G Phone Support
If you're doing live production on location, the ATEM Mini Extreme models support connecting an Apple or Android phone to the USB port to use mobile data. It's also a great backup for the main Ethernet connection, so you don't drop your stream if your hardwired connection gets interrupted. The switcher will automatically switch to using the phone as the primary connection, and the USB port will also power your phone so the battery won't drain.
Multiview Monitoring
You can configure the 3G-SDI outputs for multiview with 4, 7, 10, 13, and up to 16 views, including Program, Preview, eight 3G-SDI inputs, SuperSource, clean feed, media player, streaming status, recording status, and audio meters.
Media Pool
The switcher can store up to 20 images with fill and key, and it supports PNG, TGA, BMP, GIF, JPEG, and TIFF file formats.
Compatibility
It includes the ATEM Software Control Panel, and it is also compatible with the ATEM 1 M/E, ATEM 2 M/E, and ATEM 4 M/E Advanced Panels. The ATEM Mini Extreme ISO can be configured using Blackmagic's Videohub Hardware Panel Setup utility to route sources to destinations using Videohub Smart Control Pro and Videohub Master Control Pro.
Recording
The ATEM Mini Extreme models support the direct recording of your streaming data to USB flash disks using the same H.264 video files with AAC audio that you streamed. The Mini Extreme ISO also allows you to record the eight input video channels as MP4 files. This allows you to directly upload to any online video site, such as YouTube or Vimeo. Recording to multiple disks is also supported via a USB hub or the Blackmagic MultiDock, so when a disk becomes full, recording can continue to a second disk for nonstop recording. Record settings and disk selection are set up in ATEM Software Control, and there's a record status view in the built-in multiview. You can even trigger recording on connected Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Cameras.
DaVinci Resolve Integration
The Mini Extreme ISO saves a DaVinci Resolve project file, so with a single click, you can open your live production as a video edit. All cuts, dissolves, and media pool graphics will be loaded, allowing you to tweak and edit your live production using the recorded input footage. If you recorded the camera originals as Blackmagic Raw camera files, you can relink those and take advantage of DaVinci Resolve's color correction abilities.
Video Effects
One of the benefits of ATEM Mini is the professional production values possible using the range of built-in video effects. The cut button ensures an instant cut when switching between sources. The auto button is a professional term used on large broadcast switchers to enable video effect transitions. There are duration buttons for video effects allowing 0.5-, 1-, 1.5-, and 2-second settings. You can also select the type of effect you want, including mix, which does a smooth transition between sources, and dip, which fades via a color during the transition. Or use fun DVE effects that move the image off-screen when transitioning between sources.
Audio
With two independent 3.5mm stereo audio inputs, you can connect desktop and lapel microphones, or you can connect a music player to generate introduction music after the live stream commences, but before the program starts. With two extra stereo audio inputs, you can ensure a host and guest both have lapel microphones when doing interviews. All audio inputs to the ATEM Mini include buttons on the panel for adjusting the audio level and enabling inputs into the audio mixer. All models feature a Fairlight audio mixer with all SDI inputs, and both microphone inputs are connected to the audio mixer, so you can live mix from all audio sources. The ATEM Mini Extreme also adds a headphone output.
Broadcast Features
Hiding in the ATEM Mini Extreme models are a host of broadcast-caliber features accessible when connected to a Mac or Windows computer running the free ATEM Software Control app.

This is so exciting! 1. Does this switcher allow me to put in different frame rates and frame sizes in each input or do they all have to be the same? 2. Are we able to use the HDMI outputs differently? Can I use 1 as a multi-view and one as a program output?
Asked by: Paul
Yes to both. The ATEM has converters on all the inputs so you can feed if different formats. You can also set the 2 HDMI outputs independently.

Do I need an interface like a Magewell with the Item Mini Extreme (ISO) to interface with OBS or other streaming apps?
Asked by: Anthony
No, you do not. Connecting to either of the USB-C ports makes the ATEM Mini look like a webcam for apps that support it. That being said, the supported output formats are "HDMI (10-Bit 4:2:2 YUV) / 1080p: 23.98/24/25/29.97/30/50/59.94/60 fps" If you want to capture and upscale beyond 1080p/60, you'll want to connect the ATEM HDMI output to an external capture device.

Does the Mini Extreme support live dual PIP? I heard that mentioned several times in the demo video on the BM site, but I want to verify that. I have the ATEM TV Studio HD, and it's limited to a single PIP.
Asked by: Bill
The ATEM Mini Extreme supports SuperSource which allows you to display up to 4 inputs simultaneously, like dual PIP.
