Strata Lite Remote for BlackMagic Design ATEM Switchers, including ATEM Television Studio, ATEM 1M/E, ATEM 2M/E, Production Studio 4K and 1M/E / 2M/E Production Studio 4K, TelevisionStudio HD and ATEM Mini Series.
Strata connects directly to your ATEM switcher via Wifi and your switcher's network connection. It does not require a separate computer.
The Lite version includes basic control of Program and Preview buttons on ATEM Switchers (on iPhone controls Program bus only).
FEATURES (iPad version):
* Control Program and Preview Busses
* Cut and Auto Transition Control
* TBar Control
* Remapping of Source Button Layout
* Connection Indicator with auto-reconnect
Note that the iPhone version does not control preview or Auto, only cuts on the program bus.
NOTE: It does not provide control of the second ME in ATEM 2M/E switchers, although it does control Program and Preview on the first ME of an ATEM 2M/E. This app is not designed for older ATEM Switchers not manufactured by BlackMagic Design. Strata requires iOS 8.1 or later and ATEM firmware version 3.4, thru 8.3 Firmware.
NOTE: If you require more complete control of your ATEM switcher, including ME2 of the 2M/E, you should select Strata Pro from the App Store instead of Strata Lite. (Strata Pro provides control of ALL the main buttons on ATEM Switchers plus Midi Control and Macros).
IMPORTANT: The control protocol uses UDP and is fairly intolerant to packet loss and network latency. It is very important to have a reliable, responsive WIFI network for Strata to work reliably. Wifi router performance varies between vendors, and best results have been shown with Apple Airport wifi routers. Some 3rd party routers have shown to be unreliable due to latency or UDP packet loss. Version 1.35 of Strata will handle poor connections much more eleganty. See http://www.livepad.co.uk/support.html for more details on optimising your Wifi environment for Strata.
Independent Review of this app at: http://www.studiotech.tv/st59strata/
You know when you hover over that buy button thinking you know this is a rip-off but hope it’ll at least work enough to be worth it in 1 year or so? Yeah, that’s this app. But still not worth it 1 year down the line. Absolutely trash - this app is so poorly designed I’m amazed Apple allowed it.1: the app will refresh its GUI constantly while it tries to reconnect to the ATEM device. This leads to you tapping the same button repeatedly like a slot machine hoping you caught it while it didn’t disable the button and actually sends the command. 2: dev has no idea about WiFi, how it works, or what would fix it. To quote them, “we saw Apple airport behaving better”. Right, makes sense, a 2.4GHz router from a decade ago. Then in the same breath the dev blames your router and BlackMagic for the intermittent connectivity this app is barely handling. I’m 5 feet away from my router, and the laptop using Software Control uses the same router, same WiFi, same protocol that BM wrote, yet magically works. It must be because I don’t have a decade old Airport. 3: emailed the dev 6 business days ago, zero replies. Not even a courtesy “thanks for emailing I’m swamped, I’ll look into it”. Silence. 4. The app costs WAY TOO MUCH for the trash quality and use you get out of it. Dev should dial it back to free. Then at least I and many others won’t be demanding the dev fix the app to work as advertised.As it stands right now I purchased a product that was falsely advertised, and it has no support. I was cheated, scammed.
