ATEM MINI PRO RIG
Compact, portable, mountable. Fully self-contained power, networking, and monitoring.
Save time and space when you arrive on set with a self-contained ATEM Mini Pro / ISO rig. Don’t bother updating network settings as you move between the office, home, and location with a built-in router. A single V-mount battery or AC adapter powers the whole system and eliminates cable clutter. Mount it on a tripod, or place it on a desk. Save footprint and cable runs by stacking laptops, mixers, cameras, or autocue on to the rig itself.
This ATEM Mini Pro / ISO rig was designed almost entirely using off-the-shelf, universal video production parts. 15-mm rods, rail blocks, NATO clamps, and 1/4-20 cheeseboards makes it highly customizable with existing production production equipment. Plus, when you out-grow your ATEM Mini, there’s no wastage since all these parts can be re-purposed in other kits, such as camera rigging.
Individual Parts, Frame, Power, & Cables
ATEM MINI Pro ISO
The ISO model is recommended, but if you don’t need individual recording, try the ATEM Mini Pro instead.
Stream Deck XL (32-buttons)
The 32-button version is the best option for the Companion Profile I built.
Stream Deck (15-buttons)
If the 32-button version is sold out, the 15-button is usually still in stock.
GL.iNet GL-MT1300 (Beryl)
Compact Gigabit travel router offering WiFi bridging and phone tethering with an intuitive user interface.
ATEM Streaming Bridge
Build this into your rig so you can have Program Out always available with one click.
Elgato Cam Link 4K
Useful to patch your MultiView display back into your computer for remote directing over Zoom.
Teradek Cube 655
H.264 video encoder to see MultiView on your iPad via the Vuer app. Also check out the new Camera 2 Cloud.
Micro to Full HDMI (1ft)
Short patch cable to connect Rasberry Pi to your ATEM, or your ATEM to your AOC 15.6″ Monitor.
Raspberry Pi 4 (8GB RAM)
Build a Pi into your rig to control the ATEM via Companion and Stream Deck.
10ft USB-C Fast Charging 100W
Room to move! Connect the Charger to the Lasuney USB-C Dock with 10ft of cable! Also available in 15ft!
Lasuney USB-C Dock
Unify your networking, display, and computer interface when this dock is built into your rig.
SanDisk 2TB Extreme PRO Portable SSD – Up to 2000MB/s
Plenty of headroom to record all your ISO inputs.
Mount for ATEM Mini Pro
This tablet mount is easily adapted to hold the ATEM Mini Pro securely, as well as quick release with no alteration to the ATEM Mini Pro itself.
CAMVATE Long Cheese Plate (x3)
Use two for the main cage structure, and the third as a vertical support for the router.
6-Inch 15mm Rod Pair (x2)
We’ll use 2 pairs (4 total) for the top and bottom of the main cage structure.
12-Inch 15mm Rod Pair
Use 1 x 12-inch rod at the back of the rig to mount devices. If you want a slightly smaller rig with fewer devices, a 10-inch rod would fit the length of the ATEM Mini Pro well.
4-Inch 15mm Rod Pair
These shorter rods are useful for mounting the camera baseplate, the Autocue, or the laptop trays.
SmallRig NATO Top Handle
Highly recommend this top handle for its build quality and versatility to change mounting angles. Will connect to many other cameras and devices.
SmallRig Cold Shoe Monitor Mount
Friction hinge makes it easy to articulate the Lilliput monitor to the best viewing angle with one hand.
On-Stage MSA5000 Mic Stand Laptop Mount (x2)
Screw one of the railblocks into the tray to mount a laptop or mixer to your rig.
SmallRig Monitor Mount Cheese Plate
75mm VESA monitor mount spacing to attach the 10.1″ Lilliput Monitor to the SmallRig Cold Shoe Monitor Mount.
SmallRig 15mm Rod Clamp
Use in conjunction with the Small Magic Arm to mount devices to the rod at the back of the rig.
AC to DC 12V 10A 120W Power Adapter, 5.5mm x 2.1mm DC Plug
12V/10A for plenty of current to power all the devices in the rig.
1-to-9-Way Power Splitter, DC 5.5mm x 2.1mm
10A main line, 2A on branches to deliver power to all your devices.
10-Inch DC Power Extension Cable 5.5mm x 2.1mm
These 10-inch extension cables help reach devices such as the 10.1″ Lilliput Monitor without adding bulk.
This is only part requiring soldering – to connect the Power Splitter to the D-Tap Port.
DC Power Pigtail Cable, 2.1mm x 5.5mm Barrel, 18 AWG
Solder this to the Female D-Tap (if you would like to run D-Taps via the same Power Splitter, otherwise, skip this step).
D-Tap to 2.5mm DC Locking Barrel
I use this cable to connect to the ATEM Mini Pro itself, because of the more secure locking connector. You could alternatively connect it via the right angle 2.5mm DC plug.
12V to 5V Step-Down Regulator, Dual USB-A Fast Charger
Tap into the convenience of your existing 12V power and step down to 5V for devices such as the HDMI Splitter, Router, and Rasberry Pi 4.
DualLock Adhesive Fasteners
More stable than regular velcro, mount the Step-Down Regulator to the back of the tablet mount.
6-Inch USB-A to USB-C 2.0
The USB 2.0 spec isn’t intended for data, but the small size and flexibility of these cables are useful to power the router and Raspberry Pi 4 from the Step-Down Converter’s USB-A ports.
1ft 4K@60Hz HDMI Cable (x6)
You can never have enough of these…the benefit of this rig design is short cables.
1.5ft HDMI Cable
Use a slightly longer cable to reach articulating devices such as the 10.1″ Lilliput Monitor.
0.5ft Cat6 Ethernet Cable (x4)
Because the devices are so close together, most can use 1/2ft ethernet patch cables.
1ft USB-C to USB A 3.0 Sync and Charge Cable
Leave your ATEM Mini Pro’s USB-C port connected to the Lasuney USB-C Hub for easy webcam startup.
1ft 3.5mm Stereo Audio Cable
Keep your Lasuney USB-C Hub plugged into the ATEM Mini Pro’s Mic/Line port for easy audio delivery.
KONDOR BLUE D-Tap to LPE6 Dummy Battery
Input: 12V – 17V; Output: 8V (Regulated) for Canon 5DmkIV, R5, R6 etc

Atem Mini Extreme options?
Hi Jay! I’m working the Companion Profile Extreme version at the moment. Hope to release it next month. If I get rig inspiration for it along the way I’ll post it here, though I suspect its size really makes it a desktop item rather than rig mountable like the Pro.
I wonder how monitor performed outdoor compared to Atomos Ninja V (brightness). Thanks
Hi Viliami, the Lilliput A11 is 320 cd/m2 brightness, so it would be difficult to see in bright outdoors, especially when used as an autocue monitor, since the 70/30 glass reduces some of the brightness. If you need something outdoors, look for something in the 1000 or 2000nit range.
As a One Man Band I love the rig and all the options. I’d like to see a video on your Beryl setup. Its a time saver not having to re-enter IP Addresses.
I also have an ATEM Extreme ISO. Yes its a desktop but I’m looking to utilize 6 cameras and the Stream Deck for bigger venues.
Extreme ISO is great – I’ve been creating a new Stream Deck profile for it. I’ll put the Beryl on my list of videos to make!
Extreme ISO yea.. will there be a video rigging on it ???
the Atem mini pro ISO is a switcher and all ..
the same that can be said for extreme ISO and EVEN MORE.
It will be phenomenal to see a extreme ISO protable rigging .
I saw the stands on pk1.tv but to have this as a protable rigging version is way more spoken for us a multi production as one person. There is also others who did an amazing table sett up (FLY PACK SYSTEM) it’s amazing yess . but to have its protable rigging without desks and table now we are talking. 😄
This an amazing amount of information you provide.. Thank you!
any news about the Companion Profile for Atem Extreme?
Count the hours until your announcement…
Hi Ilan! So close…details dropping next week!
Thank you for your time and information.
My pleasure! What sort of set up have you been building?
