BMPCC Control using your existing workflow
With the ATEM Pocket Controller (APC), you can use the Blackmagic ATEM Software Control or the ATEM Camera Control Panel to adjust your BMPCC 4K & 6K settings remotely ! Which means minimal changes in your Live Production workflow.
You can control the same settings as the URSA Mini Pro or URSABrodcast, which includes Shutter / Iris / WB / Gain / Some Primary color correction, Focus and Zoom
An efficient SDI to Bluetooth conversion
Since the BMPCC 4K / 6K doesn't have an SDI input connector like the other Blackmagic studio cameras, the APC converts the SDI program feed from the switcher into a Bluetooth signal that the BMPCC can read.
The APC only requires a 12V DC connection to operate. It also features and SDI loop out port if you want to daisy chain another Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. Please note that you still have to take the pocket HDMI signal and send it to the switcher.
So you might think : "Wait, what about that Bluetooth connection reliability in a very crowded venue ?". Well the trick is to put the ATEM Pocket Controller as close as possible to the Pocket Cinema Camera so that the Bluetooth strength is at its maximum. Then, using a traditional long range wired SDI connection, you connect the Pocket Live Controller to the Program Output of your ATEM.
Easy to use iOS app
Pair your BMPCC and ATEM Pocket Controller with the ATEM Pocket Control iOS App. It also allows you to select which ATEM camera ID corresponds to your Pocket camera. You can configure up to 8 APC with a single app ! Once the camera is paired to the APC and you have set the proper ATEM ID, there is of course no need to keep the app open! At the moment, there is unfortunately no Android app available.
