ATEM Mini Pro - Audio Inputs

How are the the two 3.5mm audio input jacks configured? Are they un-balanced stereo inputs or balanced minature TRS. Can these inputs handle +24dbm professional audio levels? I see no data in the specs about this.

Hello Richard. The two inputs labeled Mic are both unbalanced stereo or could be configured 2 Channel Mono. Additionally they could each be configured as Mic at a -55 dBu level or Line at a -15 dBu level. This is basically HiFi levels so they will not take +24 signals. As they are unbalanced, proper use of shielding or transformers is recommended. Stay safe.

So you would need a mic preamp mixer like the Sound Devices MixPre/D or new version, that has an unbalanced stereo mic/line out on a 3.5 TRS to use professional balance +24dB mics.

Yes, that works as well, but I prefer the control a small field production mixer affords. Even used one,with my ENG cameras in the field, even though they had balanced mic inputs.
