I received my ATEM Mini Pro last Wednesday, after waiting more than a month for it.
I record yoga classes 4 days a week. Two times a week, the classes are broadcasted live, the other times are for filling my library of eLearning classes. I record in UHD BRAW Q0 on the cameras, and 1080p h.264 from the ATEM Mini Pro to an SSD.
- ATEM Mini Pro
- MacBook Pro 16", 2.4GHz i9, Radeon 5500M with 8 GB VRAM, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD
- 12x Samsung T5 2TB SSD
- Camera 1: Pocket Cinema Camera 4K with Voightländer 10.5mm f/0.95
- Camera 2: Pocket Cinema Camera 4K with Voightländer 25mm f/0.95
- Sennheiser XSW-D lavalier mic connected to Camera 1
- Sennheiser 602-II instrument mic connected to Camera 2
- iPod Touch connected to the Mic 1 input on ATEM Mini Pro to provide music
- HyperDeck Studio Mini connected to HDMI input 3 on the ATEM Mini Pro, to serve animated graphics
- MultiView output from ATEM Mini Pro to a VideoAssist 7", which has a headphones output, allowing me to monitor and adjust sound on my Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones.
- ATEM Mini Pro records to a USB-C connected Samsung T5 2TB disk
- ATEM Mini Pro, HyperDeck Studio Mini, and my laptop are connected over Ethernet. I use a TP-Link 5-port Ethernet hub that I plugged into a Fritz WiFi repeater, which wirelessly goes to another Fritz WiFi repeater, which wirelessly goes to a Fritz router.
- Lighting: 4 105w CFL bulbs in a diffuser, and 3 separate LED panels
- Also in the picture: a Dell P2419HC 24" monitor, which I use for extra screen real estate. (ie. the Vimeo Livestreaming page)
The weak spot in my set-up is that the audio volume coming from the VideoAssist headphone port is low. When I’m recording, the volume of the talent is louder than what I hear in my cans. So today I ordered a Samson QH4 headphone amp. It will arrive tomorrow, hopefully that will alleviate the issue.
