Title: Black Magic ATEM TV Studio and ProPresenter
Post by: joshliles on February 08, 2016, 11:32:19 pm
I have a Black Magic ATEM TV Studio (not the 4k model) and I was wondering the best way to get my ProPresenter 5 feed from my Mac Mini to the projector and the ATEM at the same time. Sorry if this is vague as I am an AV guy by necessity - I've kinda been thrown to the wolves.

Thanks in advance for the replies.

We'll probably need a little more info on your setup but, assuming it's all HDMI connections...  how about a 1:2 HDMI DA (Distribution Amp) connected to the output of the Mac Mini?  So:

Mac Mini ---> 1:2 DA ---> Projector + Black Magic

Or, if you can export video simultaneously via HDMI and Thunderbolt, connect one via HDMI, one via Thunderbolt to HDMI converter, perhaps?

Yes, sorry to not provide more information. I took over as the AV guy sometime ago, but haven't had a chance, or the budget, to really set things up how we'd like it. Currently we run a Canon XA10 into the Black Magic ATEM. That's the only input thus far, but we're looking to expand in the near future. We'd like to run pro presenter into the ATEM to enhance our broadcast (one week delayed on DVD, and uploaded to vimeo). The DA sounds like a fix, but we have VGA running to the projectors so I think that puts us in a bind. Thanks for the suggestion, and any other input would be greatly valued and appreciated.
