1* • The ATEM Mini Pro can output the programme feed via the USB-C connection. It also features a single HDMI port, which can be configured to output either Multiviewer, Programme, Preview or Camera ISO.

A* • It's possible to utilize auxilliary output of the ATEM to act as a preview out.

Chromakeying in the ATEM • The ATEM range has two different chroma keyers, the standard and advanced chroma key. The standard will allow you to select hue and luminance levels to pull a key, whereas the advanced version allows you to use a color picker tool, has more refined controls and is faster to use.

Volatile vs Non-Volatile Memory • When a system that uses volatile memory loses power, that data is lost. In contrast, a non-volatile system retains its data regardless of power loss.
