ATEM Mini Extreme ISO with Micro 4K camera controls?

PostTue Jun 22, 2021 5:25 pm

Hello,
I am doing a series of shoots that require a bunch of cameras around comic book artists while they are drawing, so the cameras have to stay out of the way.
I have a few static cameras, but I want to try putting the main camera on a slider, pan, tilt robot.

I'm using the ATEM mini extreme ISO as my switcher.

I'm thinking about possibly replacing my main camera with a micro 4k, but before I do so I want to make certain the camera controls work with the micro the same way they do with the pocket cinema cams.
I know the micro 4k camera controls work with SDI, but I can't find any confirmation they work over HDMI.

Anyone know?
Thanks in advance!

I don't think the controls work with a direct hdmi connection from the micro 4k. However the BiDirectional HDMI/SDI converter is supposed to allow this , but unfortunately when I tried it - it was not reliable.
I now use an SDI based Atem to control my micro 4k cameras.
