ATEM Mini USB C to HDMI?

PostThu Mar 26, 2020 6:45 pm

I'm pleased that the ATEM Mini output is cleanly seen and used by Cerevo devices. Unfortunately, this means the only output I have is used (I can't split the signal or Cerevo boxes aren't happy). I'm wondering if the USB C output can be converted to HDMI to plugin to my preview monitor?

OR, do I have to buy a new preview monitor that has HDMI pass-through?

Thanks for that, and it's a good point I suppose. For all that this mixer can do, it's really surprising there ISN'T a Preview mode of some sort so I can see all four sources at once in a matrix like other mixers do. Very strange. Unless it's in the software somewhere? I haven't dug into it far enough perhaps...

This is because this mixer is not intented for Live use.. The mixer is intended to provide a cheap small device for live streamers like gamers to put 1 or 2 fixed cameras and there game live to YT FB Twitch etc..

If you intend to do live video productions you benefit much more from the TVS HD switcher that has 8 inputs, A multiviewer were you can see all sources etc.

It all comes down to price. To have a multiviewer inside this unit the price would be much more expensive then what it is now. So they had to make sacrifices. ;)

Strange that you say that since the product page on the website talks all about how great this is for live use. But whatever, it's fine for my needs, I'll just have to get a different monitor. Not a problem.
