Our RGBLink Mini Review
With a compact design and a price of just under $300, the RGBLink Mini video streamer is perfect for remote broadcasts and mobile DJs who travel all over and would rather not carry all types of bulky equipment around with them from one location to another. In essence, this switcher makes the sophisticated simple, which means smaller houses of worship and other organizations can use it with ease. The large buttons make its operation simple and fast for everyone, and it’s the perfect device to choose when you want to take your video-streaming and production talents on the road with you.
What Is the RGBLink Mini Switcher?
The RGBLink Mini video switcher offers a compact design, live preview of four different inputs, switching that is seamless and professional-looking, and lots of other features that make this device such a high-tech one. In fact, people looking for a high-tech switcher but who are also on a budget will be wise to take a look at this switcher because it offers a lot of the features that many higher-priced switchers do. The advanced hardware-based video processing engine supports scaling and full 4:4:4 color space so that you get the best visual output possible, and these are just a few of the perks associated with this mixer.
Regardless of the studio it’s in, this switcher is perfect because it can even mount to standard 1/4-inch UNC accessories, which is undoubtedly one of its most-significant features. Other features of this device include:
- A USB 3.0 live-streaming port
- Audio insert/extract
- Auto cut and manual switch
- HDMI output as PGM or Multi-View
- PiP (picture-in-picture) presets
- Seamless switching
- Supports third-party apps, including OBS and other software
- The ability to control remotely via an app
- Transition effects
If you connect this device to a USB 3.0 device, you can then use OBS to capture or stream to nearly every platform, and you can even control the device from the front panel or remotely with a LAN connection. This is possible thanks to apps for mobile devices and laptops, as well as integration with third-party apps. This gives you a lot of options when you want your own devices to be used with the RGBLink Mini switcher. The more you explore and research this amazing mixer, the more surprised you’ll be that it does as much as it does, and it does those things very well.
Seamless Switching and Much More
With the RGBLink Mini switcher, you can switch seamlessly between any of the four HDMI inputs and output to both HDMI and the dedicated USB 3.0 output. You can even control the mixer wirelessly via an app using either your mobile phone or even a PC. This is a huge convenience for people on the go because it simply makes life a whole lot easier. In addition to all of this, this switcher has large buttons and a T-bar, which makes using it both easy and fast and allows the T-bar to give you smooth transitions between sources, whether those sources are graphics or cameras.
If you’re concerned that the switcher’s size might affect its ability to execute top-notch live-streaming, not to worry because the Mini switcher is perfect for presentations, live-streaming, and so much more. You can even use multiple sources to get professional impressions every time. After all, just because you’ve decided to purchase a small and compact video switcher doesn’t mean you should sacrifice quality or professionalism. With the RGBLink Mini switcher, you sacrifice nothing and get professional-looking results every time, whether you’re live-streaming, recording, or doing anything else.
This switcher is lightweight at just under 2.5 lbs. and is roughly 6” x 10” x 3.5” in size. This feature alone is why so many people are attracted to it, and even if you never do remote broadcasts or have to move it from one location to another, you’ll still appreciate its portability because it won’t take up much room in your studio or control room. This is especially important to many houses of worship because they can be very small and have very little room to hold items such as this.
Some of its Specifications
The RGBLink Mini switcher offers excellent HDMI, SMPTE, VESA, and USB streaming resolutions, and its connectors include four HDMI-A inputs, one HDMI-A and one USB Type A outputs, and two audio 3.5 mm stereo jacks (one for in and one for out). It works with a lot of different video-streaming software, including OBS and vMix, and you can use the XPOSE software (for computers) or the XPOSE app (for tablets and mobiles) to operate the device remotely. The RGBLink Mini switcher is not only easy to use, but it is also efficient and extremely convenient.
You also get SMPTE input resolutions of 720p@50/60, 1080i@50/60, and 1080p@23/24/30/50/60, as well as output resolutions of 720p@50/60 and 1080p@24/25/30/50/60. The VESA resolutions give you many other options as well. In addition to all of this, the switcher provides you with advanced features for PTZ cameras, audio control, and a lot more. What all this means in practical terms is this: the RGBLink Mini switch is a high-tech, very advanced mixer that allows you to enjoy the perks and features that you normally don’t find except in devices that are much more expensive.
The RGBLink Mini mixer costs less than $300 but provides you with features you’ll love and will soon discover you can’t live without. While its specs and numbers are impressive, the only thing you need to remember about this switcher is that it is an easy-to-use but high-quality device that allows your house of worship or other organization to get the professional results you want and deserve at a price that anyone can afford. The company also makes the Mini+ switcher, which costs just under $500, but most organizations find their needs can be met with the Mini version.
Regardless of your audio and video needs, the RGBLink Mini devices offer something for everyone. Whether you need it for video-streaming, live broadcasts, high-tech productions, classes, seminars, or corporate presentations, it will never disappoint. These are devices that take tasks that seem complicated and make them super easy, so you don’t need to be a tech genius to make the devices work for you.
