Middle Control Software

 

The Middle Things APC is a pocket controller for ATEM switchers that allows you to remotely control the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K/6K from your Blackmagic ATEM switcher. The BMPCC 4K/6K doesn't have an SDI port needed to connect to SDI-only ATEM switchers, so this APC is the answer. It converts the SDI program signal from the switcher into a Bluetooth signal that can be read by the camera. The APC takes program output from the ATEM switcher through an SDI input. It then pairs with the BMPCC via Bluetooth using the companion Middle Things iOS app. Then, using standard ATEM software or the ATEM camera control panel, you can adjust settings such as gain, shutter, iris, white balance, focus, zoom, and a simple primary color correction. The APC can be used with any ATEM switcher, except the ATEM Mini and ATEM Mini Pro, which have HDMI connections.

The APC also allows you to control certain DJI gimbals via an S-Bus connection. Using an optional Middle Things APC cable, the APC can be connected to the DJI RS2 or Ronin-S/SC by connecting it to the DJI Focus Wheel's S-Bus port, or it can be connected directly to the Ronin 2 to be connected. The pan, tilt and roll rotation of the gimbal, as well as the speed settings, can be controlled remotely at the same time as the BMPCC using the ATEM Advanced Panel or the Television Studio Panel.

Compact and easy to integrate into your workflow, the APC can be held at a distance of 30 to 45cm from the camera. The APC has an SDI input and an SDI loop output that allows you to loop the PGM signal from the ATEM to another APC. The APC only supports 3G-SDI signals; if you are moving to a UHD 4K standard (12G-SDI or 6G-SDI), and you don't have HD ports on your switcher, you can use an optional Teranex Express to convert the 6G/12G output to 3G -SDI.
