Can multiple ATEM’s be networked to be used in Macro’s?

PostWed Sep 28, 2022 10:10 pm

I have a new need that I’m brainstorming. I’m not a guru with Streamdeck companion. Can a macro be created that would for example change state on a Mini Pro Extreme ISO and a Mini in one move?

Yes, you could set up a button in Bitfocus Companion to send commands to multiple ATEM switchers. Note that Companion also has a web interface with on-screen buttons, so you can use it without a Stream Deck if you don't need the hardware control surface.

If you are asking about the built-in ATEM macros, those macros are executed internally by the switcher, so any actions performed by the macro are limited to the switcher the macro is running on.

Thank you. That’s promising! I will try to figure it out when I get a chance. I appreciate the tip. I do have a couple of Streamdecks and have used Bitfocus Companion but it’s been years and I didn’t go too deep. Hopefully this will solve my particular problem.
