This week, we’re taking a look at the latest product from Black Magic Designs, as well as sharing a free educational resource for live sound.
ATEM Mini video switcher
The new ATEM Mini from Black Magic Designs is one of the smallest and most affordable video switchers available, and it could be a great purchase for many churches looking to get started with live-streaming their services. It allows you to connect 4 different inputs (including cameras and a media computer for lyrics and verses), and it connects by USB to your computer for you to integrate with any live streaming software! The best part is it costs only $295 USD (instead of $2,000+ like other video switchers.) If you’ve only done single-camera live streams or are wanting to start streaming for the first time, check out this video that explains how to set up this equipment for live streaming, and start researching how you might do multi-camera live streams at your church in 2020!
