Video Transcript:

With this setup here we can record up to eight individual virtual participants as well as be able to upload them to dropbox or to my editing computer over there all within just a matter of minutes so let me show you how it works we mainly use zoom it will work with other video conferencing platforms but it does work best with zoom and i'll show you why in just a second But doing the recordings are two atem mini pro isos and then we have four laptops here one will be the zoom host or we'll start the zoom meeting on and the other three will join the same zoom meeting and then pin our participants in the correct locations push record and get iso records of each participant i'm getting ready to start a meeting here so i figured i would walk you through The process and kind of explain everything as i go so i have the meeting started from this laptop already joined over there go ahead and push join here we're joined on this laptop i'm going to exit full screen and then i will drag this window up into my multi-view here full screen it change to speaker view and then you always got To remember to pop out the participants in the chat that way in case anyone um sends a message or tries to join while uh you're doing a recording it won't pop up at the bottom of the screen it'll pop up um on this laptop here and then use these little windows here to pin your participants pin the first screen pin that on the Second screen you can see they're popped up there going into the a-10 mini pro giving us our individual iso records i'll do that for these ones as well switch to speaker view participant and chats are already out pin our feeds and kind of just repeat this process for all of your laptops until you have your participants in the correct location Cool so i got everyone pinned where i want them now let me show you what's going on with this stream deck here the two blue buttons here are reset time code and record all record all obviously just starts to record on both the atem isos reset time code resets the time code on both the isos so that way syncing them up in editing is very easy to do then these buttons Down here multi-view cam one two three and four those are controlling what i am seeing on my displays here so currently i'm looking at a multi-view if i push cam one it will show cam one two three and four that's so when i have participants on and i'm trying to frame them up make sure their lighting looks good make sure their audio is good i can full screen them and get a so i Can have a better view of you know what their frame looks like and make sure everything is looking and sounding good on their end so both these atem minis and the stream deck here are networked into our 2020 mac mini that i have sitting over in the corner over here and that is where we are running our atem control software as well as a companion for the stream Deck all right so i can show you how that works here both of the atem isos are actually networked directly into the mac mini so that way you don't have to fiddle with um with ip addresses you can easily just select and change the two of them i'll go ahead and change the name of the meeting Or of the recording we'll call it meeting one two three and here is where you're going to want to make sure that you have recorded not not necessarily recording all cameras but record all iso inputs you're going to make sure you want to have that selected and we can come up here go to connection go to our other atm iso we'll switch that one to meeting one two Three and then here i'll push reset time code and as you can see the time code reset it actually resets for both of them and now pretty much i'm ready to hit record but uh before i do that let me quickly show you how companion is running for our stream deck as i said both of the atem isos are networked Directly into the computer click edit target ip that's how companion can tell the difference between the two we labeled this one is atem mini iso orange and then a10 mini iso write so those are my two different atem isos now let me show you buttons so record all we have macros set up on each atem mini and this will a10 mini iso orange run macro record all And then a10 mini iso write run macro record all so hopefully that makes sense i'll show you the macros here reset time code start record and the same two macros are on the other one and then these buttons are just triggering them this is just running a macro to put multi-view in my aux output or multi-view output These ones are switching it to camera one camera two and these are all native uh these ones are native companion commands multiview we had to make a macro for that one because that is not a native companion command all right so we're set up there we have our meeting named and now when once everyone joins and i have them pinned and ready to go i've done all my Tech checks i will push reset time code and then push record now i can see easily right there that i am recording on both atem isos and then once everyone's done i'll say great job everyone stop the record and i can grab my ssd here we use the samsung t5s plug it in to the mac mini Get rid of these windows open up my drive here and i can see i have meeting one two three and here i have my audio source files uh i actually have a davinci project file a program feed i don't really care about any of those what i want are the video iso files that's camera one two three and four typically i will rename this to whatever it is called and then simply drag this over to our Dropbox hot folders here we have the dropbox desktop app installed so once i drag these over and they're on our drive here then you can see it's already syncing to dropbox i can check the status of it syncing three files a couple of them already done cool and now we're pretty much done so i'm able to go from finishing a recording here to uploading To dropbox and or uploading to my editing computer in a matter of was that 60 seconds um and then the files are available for editor within you know depending on how long the video is an hour or two and yeah it just makes it super fast we're able to turn around videos super quickly and our clients are always thrilled when you know we have those quick turnaround Times so if you have any questions feel free to leave them in the comments section if you have any recommendations for other videos that you'd like us to do also leave those in the comment section thanks
