These downloads are standalone switcher pages. Test out your network configurations and Companion modules (ATEM, VLC, H2R, VICREO) for switching, graphics, video playback, and slide control. Import it into a new or existing Companion configuration to easily add network control of an ATEM switcher.
If you want to extend your capability, check out the full-featured v3.0 profiles for both ATEM Mini Pro and Extreme below.

It’s an awesome portable Switcher page that’s easy to import to any Companion profile! 🙂
Note that the v2.0 DJF Companion Profiles mentioned in my 2021 YouTube Companion tutorial videos have been superseded by these free trials of the Home Page v3.0 (below). The download does not include the native Stream Deck application profiles or the ATEM Macros that are found in the full v3.0 package.

David, very impressive work on your Streamdeck with Companion.
I did sign up to get your companion file but did not get it via email nor do I see a way to get it on the site.
Hi JF – check your promotions or spam folder -might have been caught in there. I’ve emailed you as well. Enjoy the layout! David
Hello David very impressive work, i did not get layout im actually using the 15 key stream deck hopefully i can get the commands ill actually use. — thanks
Hi David, just watched the video and am very much impressed with your setup. I have signed up and look forward to working with and learning from your design. As a newbie this will provide a massive leg up. Thanks for the great work.
Hi Paul, thanks for the note – glad you found it helpful. There are so many options in Companion. I’m working on a how-to video, so check back in a couple of weeks!
Thank you. Your video was very helpful. I think you are the on the front of the wave.
I’ll do my best to suggest ideas based on my use case.
All the best,
This was exactly what I was looking for.
You showed several very usefull workflows automated with the Stremdeck device in an impressive and educative way. Respect.
I’m looking forward to your upcoming video how you build this with Companion and BMD Atem macros.
I was wondering why you prefer VLC over OBS your videoplayer.
Hi Jan, I mainly use VLC because I find it fast to dump videos in and reorder the playlist items. It accepts a wide range of video formats and there’s not much setting up to do. I haven’t used OBS very much, and you could use that instead, but from what I recall you’d need to set up a scene for each video item individually.
Thanks for your Support,
you did a grat Job on the Video
Hi David, I too did not get the Companion files. Not in my spam either. Can you assist?
Hi Scott, I’ve emailed you.
This is a great video, and companion layout. Thanks for sharing. Nice work!
Hi David, Great video and ingenuity! Looking forward to receiving the Companion files. Thanks a bunch!
Hello boss after watching your video I’ve finally decide to get these equipments, especially since they’ve launched the extream version. I was wondering if you can share how to do the vlc playback option just like you did in the presentation
Hi Frank, I have some new videos I hope to release this coming week that will show the VLC setup and the rest of it…Just getting through some other work first! Watch this space.
Hi David – Want to thank you in advance for the how-to videos. I’ve tried to setup something similar to your video but haven’t been able to match all the features. i.e. VLC play time feedback, etc.. Very much looking forward to your videos. I also recently purchased a Hyperdeck Mini and two SDI converters for over $800. For what I need, I think I can return this equipment! So Again.. Thank you!!
Awesome! Let me know how the workflow goes for you!
Hi David – am also very impressed with your setup and that you share it with other creators is really wonderful ! Thanks a lot for this! Your Videos are also fantastic.
I do have one issue or question. Trying to understand the building process behind this setup, you connect three cameras and the MacBook to the Atem mini HDMI inputs, and than you build the scenes (background, PIP, green screen effects, flying Text, boxes around the camera view and so on) on the fly (pressing Buttons) with macros that manages Atems switcher app for scene composition, H2R for all graphic elements and companion for the programing… (that is what I understand so far..?!)
Now the HDMI connection from the MacBook to the ATEM mini HDMI (4) in is used for the VLC Video playback only? (isn’t it)
I ask, because I have to use a special AI-Cameras (OBSBOT tail and OBSBOT tiny) to follow a dancing Couple automatically . I need this live video input as Camera input like your Cam 1–3 but these cameras offer only webcam signal no HDMI out put. Do you see any option that integrates a webcam (USB input) to your scene bulldog process?
I could use another Mac or raspberry pi to transform the webcam out into an HDMI out, but I would be much better if I could use the one MacBook in your Setup with connected webcams to it.

Hi Uwe, If you’re relying on usb webcams, it would probably be better to use a software-based workflow rather than the ATEMs, since you’d need to convert the usb back to HDMI to bring into the ATEM. I haven’t tried such programs in detail enough to recommend a workflow, but you could start with the free OBS and then look at other NDI based paid programs.
I am so blown off by your demonstration of the Streamdeck possibilities, that I now realize I am only using 5% of it’s potential. Thank you so much for sharing this.
Spectacular! Great work David. Thanks for your efforts. I have implemented this into my workflow and am working through all of the instructional videos. I have had great success following along and with each viewing I gain further clarity and a little insight into your thought processes, all quite logical, kudos. I still need to become more proficient in “Companion”. I am having issues with adding the “Chroma” shortcut to H2R, it does not seem to stay after I add it? I’m still trying work through why certain presses cause “Companion” to crash? Well off to rewatch another of your videos. I am going to try and add pages for “SuperSource” for the “Extreme ISO” in the near furture.
Cheers and Thanks
This is actually an addendum: I have been getting an error in “Companion” upon launch: USB device not recognized…”. Well I have just discovered that the Stream Deck App needs to be closed prior to launching companion! I had no idea. I was having an issue where Companion would “crash” when I wold press certain buttons on the Stream Deck. Just posting as an FYI.
Hi AK – Companion in V2 can work both ways – either alongside the native Stream Deck app, or else quit the SD app and run Companion solo. If you’re running the SD app, you’ll need to install the Companion plugin, and you can mix and match Companion buttons with SD buttons. You can choose if you want your buttons to dynamically update, or to reference Companion buttons on a specific page/bank. When SD app is running, you’ll see “Elgato Streamdeck Plugin” under Companion’s Surface tab. Quit SD app, and rescan for USB, and then the Serial Number of the deck will show up directly.
David , Congratulations on an incredible job with the Companion and Stream Deck, do you have any plans to create another profile for the ATEM Mini EXTREME, with the 8 input and the supersource capabilities more amazing setups could be created to enhance the production value of our works. Any plans?
Hi Joshua I would like to thank you for the massive work you did to help the new streamers to this world with this free and useful template. I have one question I have recently bought ATEM MINI EXTREME ISO. Can I use your Companion Layout Stream and download it for my EXTREME? Will it work as in the MINI PRO of your videos?
Thank you very much for your feedback
Hi PB, the profile will work to some extent with all ATEM models – you can adapt it for the Extreme’s additional functionality. I’m also working on an Extreme version.
David, you are a great man! Thank you for your work. Your videos are getting so popular on the internet and I will be waiting for your Extreme version. Thank you again very much for your time. God Bless you!
Thanks Patrick! Working on the Extreme at the moment!
As you mention above “when you run Companion software on a Stream Deck XL (or even your phone, tablet, or computer!).” I want to know which application to download for install on my iPad to work with.
Hi Phundit, Companion has software which emulates the Stream Deck hardware, which can be accessed simply through a web browser at http://127.0.0.1:8000/emulator.
Hi, David thank you so much for all these!!!
Can I run all of the software from M1 Mac?
Hi Alexandre, I haven’t tested an M1, but I should expect so!
Just got my ATEM Extreme ISO and Stream Deck and your companion profile demonstrates the potential for all that plus VLC and H2R Graphics. Thanks for the video.
David, As you know, I have been a “Fan” of your “Companion”, “Stream Deck” and ATEM Prowess, for quite some time now. I am happy to see that your efforts are being rewarded! I am eagerly awaiting the ATEM Mini Extreme Ver. of the program. I just wanted to extend a hearty congratulations for the well deserved recognition. I have shared your “Creation” and site my friends who share similar interests. I guess I just want to say Congrats on the recognition and Success.
I look forward to seeing you on H2R!
The remuneration for your Software and efforts is more than Fair. I will happily remit my funds for the “Extreme”, Version, so “Get Hot!” LOL.
All kidding aside, thank you and keep up the great work, in every area of your Creativity.
AK Allen (LCDR Allen)
Thanks Allen! I appreciate your support. I’m very excited to get into the Extreme – I’m finally though my backlog of work like the ATEM Rig video and other productions, so watch this space!
I am using the ATEM Mini Extreme Pro ISO.
Do your presets work with it at tis moment?
If I pay and get the 2.5 profile now, will I receive the one that support the Extreme Pro natively once it release?
Hi Joshua, that profile is optimized for the ATEM Mini Pro. You could adapt it for the Extreme, but I’d recommend waiting a couple of weeks until I release the Extreme, as there’s exciting brand new functionality that goes way beyond the Pro.
