Re: Does ATEM Mini Extreme support aux out of >1 HDMI Inputs

Some of the rack mount ATEMs with SDI inputs support not just Program out but preview channel out via a code patching of an Aux Out,(I've never done this myself but am told it's possible). How about the ATEM mini Extreme? Tech Spec (https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/atemmini/techspecs/W-APS-17) says two outputs (well two HDMI are shown in illustration, specs say 4 outputs and 2 Aux outputs but only appears to be two video outs and the rest are audio, ethernet and USB-C).

So if not current Preview channel out, what is the second output?

Is there a way to stream to another device the recording outputs of any of the HDMI inputs in the Mini Extreme ISO? The ISO variant is designed for additional recording of all 8 channels plus program out (how it does that over USB-C I'm not sure, heavy compression and lots of GPU processing power I guess).

The HDMI outs can be anything you want. HDMI 1 output is largely selectable on the panel, HDMI 2 is selctable in the software menu.

You can't "stream" individual inputs, only the Program output. There is no Loop Through on the inputs of the Extreme. A better Iso recording would need to happen the traditional way, in-camera.

Thanks, the solution I'm hoping for is that the second output can be used for whichever channel is in "Preview in my software and i can use ATEM mini as a switcher going into a software vision mixing set up like mimoLive.

what quality is the ISO recording if all 8 inputs are being recorded to a single USB-C device?!

You can set HDMI Output 1 and/or HDMI Output 2 to show the Preview bus. The audio will however always be the main Program audio.

Thank-you, good to know.
