I’ve pre-ordered an ATEM Mini Extreme which will be an upgrade from my ATEM Mini Pro. I’m super pleased with the feature set of the Extreme and it solves nearly every problem that I had to develop work-arounds for with the Pro, except the audio input issue. With my current camera and various video input needs, I would top out at 6 or 7 for any production that I’d really ever be working on, leaving me an HDMI input that could be used for audio-only.
Sure, the pair of unbalanced stereo mini TRS jacks work fine, but I’d really love a way to connect my pro audio gear to my ATEM Mini Extreme with balanced cables, either XLR or 1/4 TRS, to help support long cable runs.
I’ve seen some audio injector boxes that have unbalanced stereo audio inputs and HDMI outputs, but I’m not seeing any with a balanced stereo audio input. And I’ve seen boxes with balanced audio inputs and SDI outputs, but none with balanced audio inputs and HDMI output.
Anyone aware of one?
