ATEM Mini as a capture card for Wirecast

I am wanting to buy a Blackmagic ATEM Mini as a capture card for Wirecast.  The ATEM has one output with four inputs.  Will I be able to control each of the inputs from Wirecast?  What kind of card will I need for my computer to connect with the ATEM output?

  • The ATEM Mini only offers a single output so controlling the sources would have to be done through the ATEM's own hardware or software. The Mini offers USB out (like a webcam) or you can go HDMI out to a video capture device such as Blackmagic Ultrastudio Mini Recorder. It only offers a single output though.

    If you want multiple inputs that Wirecast would control you'd want a current Blackmagic Decklink card such as Duo and Quad (four or eight inputs).

  • All of my inputs are HDMI except for my sound which is analog (RCA type plugs).  I'm not sure any of the Blackmagic products would work.  Is there another brand of capture cards that would work, using HDMI inputs?

    They would and they list Wirecast on their product page.
    Blackmagic Quad HDMI
    Magewell also makes multiple HDMI input cards.

  • I am thinking about getting an ATEM Mini or ATEM Pro to use with Wirecast but I don't know which one to go with. I want to use Wirecast for my shot layers but I want to use multiple cameras so that is why I want to get the ATEM Mini but still not sure if that will solve my issue. Which one should I get the Mini or Pro to use with Wirecast? Thank you in advance.

      ROSAALVA DAVILA The ATEM Mini and ATEM Mini Pro only send the switched output out.

      If you want multiple camera inputs into Wirecast you'd want to consider a DeckLink Quad HDMI Recorder in a PCIe to Thunderbolt chassis.
