Sometimes, you see a project that’s just so cool and so out there that you just have to find out more. That was me when I saw the photo above from Rattanak Sorn. Rattanak live streams his e-bike journeys to Facebook and it’s turned his bike into a self-sufficient multicam live streaming machine, complete with Raspberry Pi and an Atem Mini Pro.
Blackmagic Design has just announced the new Atem Mini Pro, a streaming-focused update to the popular live streaming switcher announced at IBC last year. To go along with it, the Blackmagic Camera 6.9 update for the Pocket 4K and Pocket 6K adds direct support for the Atem Mini Pro, letting you remotely control and match up to four of the cameras from the new live production switcher.
Blackmagic CEO and co-founder, Grant Petty went on a live stream earlier to make the new announcements. If you haven’t seen the Atem Mini yet, Grant goes into a pretty in-depth overview of what the original does before talking about the new Atem Mini Pro about 15 minutes in.
