@Han We do not have yet access to those new products, so all of this is quite theoretical.
What are your thoughts on the combination of mimoLive and the new BMD products, in particular the ATEM Television Studio HD and the WebPresenter?
In theory, they should work fine as long as the new ATEM product is using the same control protocol as all the other ATEM products. We will try to verify this asap.
As far as I understand it, the Web Presenter is a supercharged HDMI/SDI to USB grabber. BMD claims it shows up as a USB webcam in macOS, so it should work with mimoLive, similar to the Magewell USB Capture family, the AJA U-TAP or the Epiphan.
Will the mimoLive ATEM plugin work with the new version of the ATEM too? Is there an advantage to use the ATEM Television Studio HD over the previous basic version, considering the switching would be done by mimoLive and not the BMD software?
The new ATEM certainly has new features that might come in handy if you need them. If your current setup works, you will probably have no advantage by upgrading.
I am also very interested in the web presenter, because I believe it will be great to have the encoding and streaming handled by the Web Presenter, while the switching is handled by mimoLive.
According to the web site, the Web Presenter is neither streaming nor encoding. It converts SDI or HDMI to 720p low frame rate USB to be used in the native streaming apps of YouTube, Facebook et. al. Stream encoding is still done by those apps.
As I understand it the mimoLive’s program out can be fed via hdmi into the Web Presenter, which will encode the signal and stream it.
That is not my understanding. Of course you can feed the mimoLive signal into Web Presenter via HDMI, I’m just not sure what that’s going to achieve.
Will this mean that the switching can be done be a less powerful machine like a MacBook Pro i5?
The answer to this question is difficult. You should be able to switch 3 1080p25 sources on a MacBook Pro i5. We have done 7 1080p25 sources on the new MacBook Pro 15inch.
