Hello guys

Newbie question

Ia it at all possible to monitor the transitions/cuts on the ATEM Television Studio swicther? And how would one proceed doing this.

I am pretty new to ATEM, and have been reading the past days the subject. I have taken a look at the Pyatem code but that one only sends Cuts it does not monitor them. Now i just need to monitor that a transition/doCut is been made. Should be pretty straight forward i thought. :geek:

Maybe you can use an Arduino?
There is a crasy guy how sells hardware to switch and monitor an Atem switcher....
He also distributes a arduino library for free:

I gave it a try, and before that I talked to my college: I think I will need a hour to get the demo work...
The Documentation was so good, it needed 30 minutes....

Do you just need to see, that the Input was switched?

If you are using Windows, I do it with PowerShell.
Example of resetting a timer every time program changes...

Happy to share the code if you want it.
