Blackmagic Design has introduced an advanced version of its ATEM Mini video production switcher, which adds more professional features for those want to live stream using two or more camera angles.

Like its $295 predecessor, the new ATEM Mini Pro can control up to four different cameras, allow you to switch between them during live broadcasts on services such as YouTube, Twitch, Zoom and Facebook Live. As well as hard cuts, the units also allow you to add a large number of effects and dissolves as you cut between camera sources. But there are several new features on the Pro version that will justify the doubling of the price tag to $595.
