Strata connects directly to your ATEM switcher via Wifi and your switcher's network connection. It does not require a separate computer.

PRO VERSION:
This Pro version includes control of all the primary buttons on ATEM Switchers including control of the second ME in ATEM 2M/E switchers, control of Aux Outputs and Audio. Pro also supports external or network Midi control supporting devices such as Nanopad, and also adds macro capability to ATEM Switchers with Strata's built in recordable macros, and also ATEM native macros. Using v6.8 of ATEM, Strata Pro can even control attached HyperDecks through ATEM Macros.

FEATURES:
* Control Program and Preview Busses
* Cut and Auto Transition Control
* Control On-Air of Upstream and Downstream Keys
* Control Selection of Next Transition Actions
* Transition Preview
* TBar Control
* Fade To Black
* Select Transition Style
* Connection Indicator with auto-reconnect
* Control of Aux Outputs
* Control of Audio Faders and Metering
* Configurable Midi Control of all buttons
* Recordable Macros - internally and using Link to BMD Atem Software Panel
* Trigger native Atem macros, including HyperDeck Control
* Step through Stills in Media Player 1

NOTE: This app is not designed for older ATEM Switchers not manufactured by BlackMagic Design. Requires iOS 5.1.1 or later and ATEM 3.4, thru 7.01 Firmware. Channels 17-20 on 2ME 4K are not controllable.

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 Pro 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. See http://www.livepad.co.uk/support.html for more details on optimising your Wifi environment for Strata. If you are concerned about your WIFI check connectivity to your ATEM first with the free "Strata View" app.

Some reviews have mentioned 'crashing' -note that in all cases examined this is due to an unreliable WIFI environment and *not* a problem with the Strata app itself. You *will* need a suitable low latency, low loss WIFI environment if you wish to connect to an ATEM using WIFI - this is due to the ATEM's intolerance of latency and packet loss. The new version of Strata will handle poor connections much more elegantly. Please read all the information at the support site before assuming that Strata is at fault. http://www.livepad.co.uk/support.html
