Input Blinking (ATEM Mini Pro)

PostThu Oct 15, 2020 10:06 pm

I am trying to send a presentation from my Mac to the ATEM mini pro and a projector. I am using a Kramer matrix switcher 4x2. The signal comes from the Mac to the matrix and then goes to the projector and ATEM. The issue is that the screen signal that the ATEM receives blinks. The projector is not blinking.

I tried directly connecting the ATEM to the Mac and it worked fine. I did EDID on the matrix. I messed around with the resolution and refresh rates both for the Mac display output and the settings in the ATEM software. While different refresh rates made the blinking faster or slower, nothing resolved the blinking. I also tried hooking up a camcorder to the matrix and the atem received the signal fine without blinking.

Any suggestions on why the ATEM is blinking when receiving the signal from the Mac through the matrix?

Thank you,

I have the exact same problem with a Kramer 6x6 matrix switch. I run the output through a 1x4 splitter. All other receivers (quad view screen, projector, other monitors) are fine but the input I run into the ATEM switcher (mini pro iso) flashes between black and pictures (about once per second - 1 second black, 1 second picture, 1 second black, ...) This happens for that input in the multi-view window and full view. I've tried changing EDID, changing ATEM resolution/frequency, etc. to no avail. Did you find any solution?

Seems like the ATEM Mini models prefer a direct device connection without D/A's or such in between.

Well it works fine when I run the camera through the Kramer Matrix and then to the ATEM.its just when I run the computer through it.
