Upstream Keyers

Control the look of your Upstream Keyers (USK) completely using MixEffect. No more digging around palettes in ATEM Software Control when they are right there at your fingertips.

Upstream Keyers editing palettes

MixEffect lets you change the current keyer style and toggle its On Air status.

With MixEffect Pro, you have full access to the settings behind each keyer and can also customize the position of the Next Transition panel within each layout.

Panel

The Next Transition panel holds information about your upstream keyers and can be added to your switcher interface.

The panel lists all of the available upstream keys from your ATEM switcher for the current Mix Effect bus. For instance, an ATEM mini will display one available USK and three disabled ones whereas an ATEM Mini Extreme will show four active USKs.

Use drag and drop or multitouch to position the frame on the virtual screen. You can continue to fine-tune your size, position, and rotation settings using the sliders or text-entry fields in the sections below the visual editor.
