Atem Mini Pro & ProPresenter 7

PostFri Apr 24, 2020 1:38 pm

Does anyone know how to connect pro 7 to the atem mini pro so I can overlay our song lyrics and bible verses? I can do it just fine in wirecast via NDI and or syphon. Trying to eliminate using wirecast.

Yes, use an HDMI cable.

Refer to "Keying using ATEM Mini" in the manual, particularly the section on using a chroma key.

So you’re saying connect the mini pro to my Mac via the hdmi out? This will allow both the mini pro and pro 7 to recognize each other?

Connect the HDMI output from the Mac to one of the four HDMI inputs on the ATEM Mini Pro.

The Mac will see it as just another monitor (same as it would a projector), then you select that as the output device in ProPresenter.

You need to make the parts of the image that are to be "cut out" chroma green or chroma blue, then configure the ATEM to derive a key from that color, as described in the manual.


You will also want to connect either USB or Ethernet to the Mac (or to some other computer) in order to enable use of the software control panel, as you will probably need to use that in order to configure the chroma keyer the first time you use it.

Should I use hdmi 1 on the atem to plug in my Mac?

So I have done as you have described however ProPresenter 7 is only seeing the ATEM mini pro as “BMD HDMI” it doesn’t recognize it as a display. All it does is act as a monitor to my Mac. Am I doing something wrong?

Good, that it what it is supposed to do.

In ProPresenter select that as the output display to send your content there, just like you would with a projector, then follow the instructions from the ATEM Mini manual to set up a key which uses that input as the fill (and key) source...

What I meant to say is that it was only showing me what was on my screen it wasn’t working as an audience display. Instead of seeing the presentation it was showing me the entire ProPresenter software. I figured it out though now. I had to change a few settings on my Mac.

Sounds like you had the displays mirrored... glad you figured it out.

Can ProPresenter 7 output audio via Atem mini pro? I'm wanting to send a feed out from the computer via Hdmi to ethernet, and run it to our gym as a second feed. This would be optimal versus streaming the service in the gym. It would be a direct feed. Is that possible?

To route the audio to the ATEM Mini Pro, select the relevant HDMI port (the computer HDMI output that the Mini Pro is connected to) as the "Device" under "Main Output" in the Audio tab of ProPresenter preferences.
