Atem TV Studio Automatic Switching

Hi I record myself playing drums for my students. I wanted to know if its possible to setup my TV studio to automatically (and randomly) switch between cameras every 10 seconds or so....

How would I go about this?

Cheers

First idea: Take a PC,

First idea:

Take a PC, install Just Macros software and write a little macro.

 

second idea:

Program a Arduino microcontroller.

 

With both, you can control ATEM vision mixers. You will find a lot of threads how to do it here in forum.

Although JM is a fine

Although JM is a fine solution... and all atem users should at least give it a go..

I'm thinking this could be done with the macros built in with the control panel software ??

Record a macro....Select camera 1, wait, select camera 2, wait, select camera 3, wait etc etc etc.

You will need to download and

You will need to download and update to the latest version of ATEM Control, update the firmware on the switcher and read through the section in the (updated) manual to learn about recording a macro using BMD's software control panel.

ATEM Developer SDK

What your looking at is a little complex, if you want to simply have a timer run a for a random amount of time and then switch the input to something else random, and then reset the timer then this is a relatively easy thing to program.

I've been messing around in the ATEM Developer SDK recently attempting to replicate the entire ATEM interface so I can add custom keyboard controls. Its really simple if you just make a copy of the supplied C# example. I recreated the entire switching interface in a weekend with my little knowlage of C# (But I know it well enough to steer clear of the C++ examples) IDK how much programming knowlage you have but I'd recommend giving it a shot as it'll most likely be the most reliable solution.

Feel free to ask me if you have questions about how it works, once you understand what its doing, its just a matter of copying and pasting code and then throwing in a few timers.
