Just moments ago, Australian powerhouse Blackmagic Design announced ATEM Streaming Bridge, a new converter that decodes the live stream from any ATEM Mini Pro model switcher and converts it back to SDI and HDMI video.
In addition, of the main advantages of a converter like the ATEM Streaming Bridge is that it allows broadcasters to connect high quality video links direct from any ATEM Mini Pro studio. Moreover, it also allows all ATEM Mini models to stream over the Internet to any website, not just Facebook or Youtube.
The ATEM Streaming Bridge is a ‘plug-and-play’ video converter that lets users receive a H.264 stream from any ATEM Mini Pro and convert it back to SDI and HDMI video. This means you can send video to remote locations around their local Ethernet network, or via the internet globally.
That’s possible because it uses advanced H.264 codecs for higher quality at very low data rates. And what’s even more remarkable is how applicable this functionality is in a socially distanced world we live in today. With the ATEM Streaming Bridge and an ATEM Mini switcher, for example, broadcasters and bloggers can collaborate on shows and creating global networks of ATEM Mini Pro remote broadcast studios.
Simple Interface and Easy-to-Send Network Settings
Setup is easy as the ATEM software utility can create setup files that users can email to remote ATEM Mini Pro studios. ATEM Streaming Bridge is the perfect way to use ATEM Mini Pro as a remote broadcast studio.
ATEM Mini switchers make it easy to create professional multi camera productions for live streaming to YouTube and innovative business presentations using Skype or Zoom. Simply connect ATEM Mini and users can switch live between 4 high quality video camera inputs for dramatically better quality images. Or connect a computer for PowerPoint slides or gaming consoles.

The built in DVE allows exciting picture in picture effects, perfect for commentary. There are loads of video effects too. All ATEM Mini Pro models have live streaming which can be used to connect directly to the ATEM Streaming Bridge.
There’s also HDMI out for projectors. Microphone inputs allow high quality desktop and lapel mics for interviews and presentations.
Pricing and Availability
And last, the new Blackmagic Design ATEM Streaming Bridge is priced at $245 USD (duty or tax, if applicable) and is expected to ship in August from authorised dealers worldwide.
