2M/E Switcher with 2 1M/E Consoles

PostWed Aug 22, 2012 2:56 pm

Is it possible to connect (2) 1M/E consoles to (1) 2M/E switcher? I work for a church and would like to have one guy control IMAG in the sanctuary and another guy control what go to capture/streaming but only using the 2M/E switcher.

Thanks

I actually run a church with nearly that exact setup. We use a 2 M/E switcher with a 1 M/E pannel, and an iMac with the ATEM controller running nearby (with our live stream on M/E 1, and the feed to the auditorium on M/E 2). We only have the one panel, but since you can connect multiple computers, I don't see why you couldn't connect multiple panels.

It is fairly easy to run both feeds from one panel, though (just make sure on M/E 1 to create a source for the M/E 2 program)

You can indeed connect two 1 M/E console to a 2 M/E switcher. When you do this, each panel will allow you to select which M/E it will control.
