Control ATEMs from a computer program?

PostTue May 07, 2013 11:17 pm

I use computer programs to control Video Mixers in the AutoAuditorium System (AutoAud.com).

I have a customer who wants to move up to an ATEM and still have AutoAud able to control the mixer.

Clearly the panels can make the ATEMs to everything a user could want.

Is there a way I can get the panel <=> ATEM protocol?

Maybe "Just Macros" would come in handy.

Wow!! 656 pages of SDK documentation!

But at least there are a couple of open source examples to help see how one might use them.

Blackmagicdesign:

I have a strong motivation to port the Mac OS version of SwitcherPanel to Linux
as a way of implementing what I need, a program that can control ATEM mixers directly,
without a human interface. I imagine the Linux version would be of interest to BMD customers.

Is there someone at BMD, say the person who wrote the Mac version, willing to answer questions?
