Using the ATEM Controller

Here is a quick recipe for getting started with the ATEM Controller layer:

  • Make sure the ATEM Switchers software from Blackmagic Design is installed and the following file is on your system: /Library/Application Support/Blackmagic Design/Switchers/BMDSwitcherAPI.bundle
  • Add the ATEM Switcher layer to your document.
  • Find the ATEM IP Adress field in the Layer Settings column under Connection and enter the IP address of your ATEM Switcher and press Enter
  • Switch the layer to “Live”

You should now be able to switch by clicking on the Cam 1 … Cam 8 buttons in the Layer Setting column in the Control section.

The following video explains how to set up and use the ATEM controller.

Adding The ATEM Controller Layer To A Remote Control Surface

The ATEM Controller Layer brings a couple of Remote Control Representations with it. To use one of them in a Remote Control Surfaces
you need to configure it completely in mimoLive. Once you finished the configuration in the mimoLive document you can open the Remote Control Surface with a button in the toolbar. (Please read Remote Control Surfaces to learn more about how to create and design a Remote Control Surface for mimoLive).

On that Remote Control Surface, you click on the + Add Button button. Look for the ATEM Controller layer in the left column and click on it. This will change the left column to the layer representations of this layer. There are several different layouts to choose from:

  • 4 Sources
  • 8 Sources In A Row
  • 8 Sources Compact
  • Mutiview + 4 Sources
  • Multiview + 8 So

Because some layouts need a lot of space you may need to adjust the Remote Surface grid size before adding the layout to it.

!Please take into account that the live video preview is CPU intensive and costs render performance in mimoLive.
