With the ATEM Mini (Pro), can I overlay live graphics from a web browser on a live video from a BMPCC video?

It'd probably be easier to download those graphics and add them to a PowerPoint, or even into the MediaPlayer of the ATEM.

Yes you can.

First you need the web browser coming out on an HDMI connection that is wired to your ATEM. So a PC or Laptop is probably the easiest choice. With a laptop you will probably have the option to make the HDMI connection a different part of the desktop to the inbuilt display so you will need to move the browser window to that part of the desktop. (You may also have the option in the browser to go full screen, which might be useful.)

The Picture in Picture option would let you put the browser on top of the camera feed. I suggest putting the browser into input and the camera into input 2 if you want to use the defaults. Select input 2 going out to program then press the On button on the Picture in Picture section. You can use ATEM software control if you want to use diferent inputs, custom postioning, scaling or cropping of the browser. The browser input is selected as the fill source.
