On our next production with live video on stage, we would like to run the cameras and WO through a video switcher in order to reduce latency.

Now we have been looking at the BlackMagic ATEM swtichers but they don't seem to have any snapshot/preset feature so controlling anything other then basic switching from WO (or any other show control software) would be hard.


Does anyone know of some similar devices that can store a series of setups and then recall them via some kind of open protocol?

Must have SDI IO and preferably hdmi

All other ideas on how to do this are also welcome.
