Camera Control

IMPORTANT NOTE: In MixEffect 1.0.6, the Camera Control section and panel have been removed from all non-ATEM Mini switchers due to a bug which can crash the switcher when trying to initiate autofocus of an SDI camera. HDMI cameras such as the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K should be unaffected. If you require control of your camera, use ATEM Software Control on your Mac or PC or the Blackmagic Camera Control application.

Rudimentary support has been added to control compatible HDMI-cameras attached to ATEM Mini line of switchers.

Right now, you can only initiate autofocus on a connected camera as view which cameras are currently on air.

You can toggle between using a cross point selector interface or displaying all your cameras using the tabs at the top of the page.

Crosspoint Selector Colors

The color of the inputs can be one of the following for colors:

  • White: Camera input is not selected nor active.

  • Red: Camera input is not selected but active.

  • Yellow: Camera input is selected and active.

  • Green: Camera input is selected but not active.

Active is defined as meaning the input is currently being used as a fill or key source for an output currently being displayed, such as a program feed, downstream keyer, upstream keyer, etc.
