Atem Mini Pro and Propresenter 7

PostWed Sep 22, 2021 1:58 pm

Hi, I am beyond frustrated and planning to call customer service this afternoon but thought I would post here first.

My current setup:
The Imac 2017 that we have does not have HDMI ports. (this is my huge problem)
These are my current ports:
Connections and Expansion
3.5 mm headphone jack
SDXC card slot
Four USB-A ports
Two Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports with support for:
DisplayPort
Thunderbolt (up to 40Gb/s)
USB 3.1 Gen 2 (up to 10Gb/s)
Thunderbolt 2, HDMI, DVI, and VGA supported using adapters (sold separately)
10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet (RJ-45 connector)

Imac usb to amp usb out. Camera one to HDMI one. (We only have one camera).

I use the camera as my main output and I cannot get propresenter 7 to show as my 2nd camera.

I am really struggling with words today. I'm just beyond frustrated trying to get this all to work. It should be simple with one mac and one computer.

I would like to use my usb out for an external drive to record. We also livestream to facebook which is not a problem at this time.

You can't feed video into the ATEM Mini series via USB, only get it out of the ATEM Mini. In order to make this work you will need a TB3 -> HDMI adapter and use that to connect the computer into one of the HDMI ports.

Alternatively, use the ATEM as a video source to feed the camera into PP7 and let PP7 do the compositing and streaming.

I don't think you have mentioned how you are trying to connect pro presenter to the atem mini pro. Can you clarify what you have tried.

I would assume that you have tried using a thunderbolt to HDMI converter cable. Did you check your display properties (gather display) to see what the iMac thought was connected in regards to resolution?

ok, you need to generate 2 videos from this iMac.
it's pretty easy, provided you use the latest OS.

NOTE: this is tested, I use this setup everyday.

get yourself the following :

https://www.owcshop.eu/catalog/product_ ... ock-p-2006

will generate 3 thunderbolt ports out of one from the mac

2 of

will generate an hdmi port each.

I do recommend you add

https://www.amazon.fr/gp/product/B095WRQK4L

to the above cable, glued on the hdmi connector plastic casing, as that thing gets HOTHOT

if you need more HDMI ports, you can always add some of those:

https://plugable.com/products/usbc-6950ue

which add 2 displays each (they need the displaylink driver installed)
