Playing for Change Live Streams with ATEM Mini Pro

Blackmagic Design today announced that livestreams for Playing for Change, an international foundation created to connect people through music, have been powered with the ATEM Mini Pro and Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K.

The organization brings together a diverse mix of musicians from all musical genres performing in their local environment. Concerts are broadcast via the Playing for Change YouTube channel, which has more than two million subscribers.

Live producer and cofounder of LivestreamBCN, Carlos Larrondo, has been involved with the foundation for the past seven years. Livestreams for the channel that Carlos has produced direct from Barcelona have included performances from soul and reggae artist Hugo Soares and the Clarence Bekker Band.

Although the technical requirements for each event are different, an ATEM Mini Pro is at the heart of all of LivestreamBCN’s productions, handling signals from a range of cameras, including the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K.

“At LivestreamBCN, the highest quality production values are paramount; our technical solutions have to convey the excitement and emotion of the performance,” explains Carlos. “I decided on the ATEM Mini Pro for its flexibility, durability and portability, which allows me to tailor to what best suits the ambience that the musician wants to embody, whether this is in a studio, a concert venue or even outdoors.”

All productions are captured at 1080p24, but Carlos explains that if the team is working on performances with a lot of movement, the additional frame rates of 30, 50 and 60fps are invaluable. When working on smaller setups, or in particular if crew numbers are limited, Carlos also controls the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K via the ATEM Mini Pro.

“The ATEM Software Control completes the user experience seamlessly, and the options for AV signal destinations are so easy to operate and edit in the library file, which makes my production even more efficient,” Carlos explains. “And it might sound a small point, but it is enjoyable to use, which makes a huge difference.”

Carlos believes that producing the Playing for Change livestreams during lockdown has allowed LivestreamBCN to refine its workflow and approach for the future.

“The ability to connect people through music is incredibly powerful and the industry has had to adapt to the challenges that this year has brought. Manufacturers like Blackmagic Design have been instrumental in supporting the innovation in streaming, in order to create content and performances that can truly unite people, no matter where they are in the world.”

Ferrari Owned Italian Mugello F1 Circuit Supplied by Marcam Europe

Ferrari’s very own Mugello Circuit made its debut in last year’s Formula 1 championships. Set in the Tuscan countryside, this was the perfect setting for Ferrari’s 1000th F1 championship race & the Italian track didn’t disappoint. Although opening in 1974, Mugello had never hosted a Formula 1 grand prix and therefore needed to have the proper measures installed regarding track safety, security and control.
