What is PresetMaster?

PresetMaster is an effective and unique tool to make any video production easier, cheaper and better. It replaces expensive and difficult control panels with a clear and intuitive solution.
Originally, it was designed to simultaneously recall PTZ-camera presets, but meanwhile it can do much more: it gives you full control over Blackmagic Design Atem Videoswitchers and Hyperdecks, it can replace remote control panels for PTZ-camera’s and you can create magic with Datavideo products, like the KMU100 and the SE1200MU video switcher. It works great with the T-Rider dolly, it is the easiest tool for setting up an Xkeys panel and there’s much more to come: graphic programs, audio consoles, intercom systems and more: If it can be controlled via IP, it can be controlled via PresetMaster!

Which devices can be controlled in V2.5?

As developers we're really proud of what PresetMaster already can do, but we're always looking for new devices that can be added to PresetMaster. So, we appreciate your suggestions very much and if there's sufficient demand for a certain device, we will most certainly try to implement it in future updates!
At this moment, in PresetMaster V2.5, we already have very cool devices that can be controlled with PresetMaster, you can find them in the list below:

Blackmagic Design Atem Switchers

BMD Atem 1 M/E, 2 M/E and 4 M/EThe PresetMaster software automatically recognizes which BMD Atem Switcher is connected, so all data, like maximum amount of inputs, aux outputs and Macro’s, is incorporated in the Presets tab. Therefore, every function of any Atem can be recalled in PresetMaster! Just select which inputs and what transition styles you’d like to use, or maybe you only want to use a few camera’s on an auxiliary output? Or do you have multiple Macro’s with different SuperSource settings? For every option you can create your own and unique custom made touch screen panel!

T-rider remote trackdolly

Front of the T-Rider with AW-HE130 on topThe T-Rider is another development of the PresetMaster Team and it’s the world’s most affordable remote-controlled camera dolly. T-Rider is a unique track system and with PresetMaster you get ultimate control over over your PTZ camera/dolly system so more dynamics are ensured in your production!

Panasonic Pan/Tilt/Zoom Camera's

Panasonic 3x PTZ camera

Add as many Panasonic PTZ camera’s (AW-HE40, AW-HE60, AW-UE70 and AW-HE130) as you like and control them individually or simultaneously. You can copy all presets that were created with a Panasonic remote Panel, like the AW-RP50 or AW-RP120, but you can also set parameters like horizontal and vertical position, as well as zoom angle, within the PresetMaster and store this new settings as a new preset. Subsequently you can give a recognizable name to each preset and let the most important ones stand out with special colors, sizes or fonts in the Live tab. 

Blackmagic Design Hyperdecks

BMD Hyperdeck Studio & Hyperdeck Studio MiniControlling a Hyperdeck Studio or a Hyperdeck Studio Mini is one of the greatest features of PresetMaster! Whether you use PresetMaster on a wireless tablet or on a wired laptop, you have full remote control of all your Hyperdecks and even more! It’s very easy to start or stop recording all hyperdecks at the same time, and selecting and starting one of the recorded clips is a very simple task. But the real power is unleashed when various speed settings and carefully measured time delays are combined to turn a hyperdeck in a very easy-to-operate slowmotion replay machine!

Blackmagic Design VideoHubs


A: Select an output on any BMD VideoHub. B: Select which input you want on that output. C: Repeat A en B to create as much ‘routing-presets’ as you like. It’s just that easy to create your own custom switching panel with only the changes you want on your videoHub, as if it was another Aux output. Simple, efficient, reliable!

Blackmagic Design SmartView Duo and SmartScope Duo 4K

Create direct buttons for your preferred scope or video source on each of the monitors, or make up and down buttons to toggle up or down between all of the available scopes or video source.

Datavideo KMU100

Datavideo KMU100 with quad split viewDatavideo’s all new KMU-100 is a unique 4K multi-camera production solution that delivers multiple ‘virtual’ full HD scaled camera angles. PresetMaster gives the ultimate control of these camera angles by making it possible to create an unlimited amount of presets. Within the borders of the 4K picture you have zoom, pan and tilt controls to create the perfect framing. Besides the option to store this shot as a fixed angle, it is also possible to use one of the great features of the KMU100: animation of the shot via a predetermined speed setting. This way it’s possible to create fluid and perfect camera moves!

Datavideo SE-1200MU

The Datavideo SE-1200MU is a small 1 rack unit but full video switcher and all of it’s switching capabilities can be controlled with PresetMaster. You can create a custom designed switching Panel, with all options to choose sources, keying layers and transitions. Besides that, within PresetMaster you have full control of the hardware outputs as well: choose directly what you send out to your livestream, big screens or your own own screen: you can even toggle between the multiview output and a full screen camera!

Hotkeys & Xkeys

X-keys Studio Setup

Some people like working on a laptop, others prefer solid hardware. With PresetMaster you can go either way. You can use a mouse or a touchscreen, but you can also assign any function you created in PresetMaster to any key on your keypad, or to any button on a programmable Xkeys Panel. In fact, that's as easy as 1-2-3 and everybody will enjoy creating a multifunctional, custom made, hardware switching panel! And the best thing is that you don't need any special knowledge or training at all. We believe we've made it the easiest way in the world to set up an Xkeys panel!

Xkeys & PresetMaster

TJ Thompson, Director and Producer at iMintmedia, gives a quick explanation of how easy it is to use a BMD Atem with PresetMaster, in the weekly&live X-keys Five Minute Friday.

Unique feature: Add Time Elements

One of the most powerful tools of PresetMaster is building a 'Scene'. This is a sequence of Presets or Actions that were set in the Presets tab. When you use this Scene by pressing it's button in the Live view, all of the actions will occur one after another, so back to back, with only a fraction of time between them. This 'fraction' however can be extended to any time wanted, measured in milliseconds. This way a time-delay between two actions can be created.
  • 1.

    Create a new Scene

    When a new Scene is created, it can be given a custom name and appearance (border color)

  • 2.

    Add 1st Preset

    In the pop-up box, select a device. Then select the Preset or Function you want to start with.

  • 3.

    Add a 2nd Preset

  • OR

    Add a Delay

    Enter the value in the box in milliseconds (1000 ms is equal to one second)

  • 4.

    Add more Presets

    and more delays, until you have the perfect sequence!





System Requirements

Despite it's huge capabilities and powerful options, the PresetMaster software is very light and doesn't require very expensive computer systems or hardware at all. We know that space in a production area is often limited and another big screen is often not an option. The good thing about PresetMaster is that it runs on even the simplest tablet-like laptops (2-in-1), just as long as a good LAN (Local Area Network) connection is guaranteed. Under good conditions this can be wireless, but for full reliability our recommendation is to have a wired connection!
We have tested PresetMaster with different setups, and with certainty we can say that with the following settings PresetMaster will work without any issues:
Operating System - Windows (7, 8 or 10)
Processor: Intel Core i3 or AMD Ryzen 3
(Cache) Memory: 2 MB
Free storage: 500 MB
* For license activation or deactivation, (temporary) connection to the internet is required! *
* For controlling any BMD Atem live switcher, the BMD Switcher software needs to be installed as well. Therefore, it is recommended to have a 64-bit computer. *

We, at www.keytown.tv, simply love working with PresetMaster. At our bigger productions we even have three PM consoles, alongside the basic remote controls, so we can work faster, more precise and with more ease. We save the costs for at least 2 more men on our crew and we have enjoyed it very much sofar. Couldn’t do without it anymore!


A true Revolution

Rated 5 out of 5
February 24, 2020

The combination of a single 4K camera, the Datavideo KMU100 and the PresetMaster Software is truly a revolution in the history of broadcasting Darts. Important for producers is the fact that it’s very much cheaper than with conventional camera’s, but more important for me, as a spotter, is that the speed of showing doubles is now lightning fast and without any sudden ‘shaking’ camera moves. Now we never have to miss a dart again!
