Blackmagic Design Launch ATEM Streaming Bridge

New converter decodes H.264 live stream from ATEM Mini Pro to connect direct to any broadcaster via the internet.

“ATEM Mini Pro's video stream is much higher quality than simple conferencing software, so customers get broadcast quality, clean of any streaming software vendor logo burn-in,” says Blackmagic's CEO Grant Petty.

The converter lets customers receive a H.264 stream from any ATEM Mini Pro and convert it back to SDI and HDMI video. This means customers can send video to remote locations around their local Ethernet network, or via the internet globally.

Petty adds, “Imagine broadcasters and bloggers collaborating on shows and creating global networks of ATEM Mini Pro remote broadcast studios. Setup is easy as the ATEM software utility can create setup files that customers can email to remote ATEM Mini Pro studios. ATEM Streaming Bridge is the perfect way to use ATEM Mini Pro as a remote broadcast studio.”

"This is an exciting converter as it allows broadcasters to integrate with a worldwide talent pool of expert bloggers with ATEM Mini Pro based studios. The stream link is broadcast quality so bloggers don't have to accept low quality streaming software with a logo burned in. ATEM Streaming Bridge can also be used on a local network so it acts as an IP converter and customers can connect to large televisions and video projectors in public spaces."
