Hi, my atem can't connect to my PC, what seems to be the problem? Can anyone give me the possible cause?

Which model of ATEM?

Does it have power?

Is it connected to the computer?

USB or ethernet?

If USB, the cable might be bad or incompatible.

If ethernet, the same possibilities exist, and then some: if you are wiring it directly to the laptop and not going through a hub or switch, are you using a cross-over cable? How is the IP address configured on the switcher (if not sure, and it is one of the Mini series ATEM switchers, connect it via USB first and configure it that way before going to an ethernet connection; for most of the non-Mini models you should be able to configure the IP address on the switcher itself).
