PostTue Aug 20, 2013 10:18 am

Do You know that the mac mini has on HDMI output resolutions we need do Atem1 ?
576 50i for PAL and 1080i for HD?
Can I use it as media player or with BoinxTv for lower thirds ?

I don't know BoinxTV, just seen it mentioned.

When you connect a Mac to an ATEM unit it will be recognized and the resolution it supports will be available for you to choose from.

If you're using a single signal as a lower third you can't use transparent shapes, shadows etc. for that you would need an alpha channel feed as well.

You could do a chroma key though.

Hello Ola,

I use an BM Ultra Studio connected to my Mac Mini to achieve HD 1080i out.
I use it for playback clips or animated lower thirds (see my amateur video here
)

I know BoinxTv and i have a license somewhere, i will give it a try tomorrow.
