Atem is a project that is Free Software.
“Free software” means software that respects users' freedom and community. Roughly, it means that the users have the freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software. Thus, “free software” is a matter of liberty, not price. To understand the concept, you should think of “free” as in “free speech,” not as in “free beer”. We sometimes call it “libre software” to show we do not mean it is gratis.
This means that you are free to collaborate with us on the project directly.
Have a look at the Collaborate page for details of
hands-on ways to support the project.

Respecting your freedom and community also means funding our work is not as straight forward as selling restrictive licenses.
If you like what we do and want us to keep doing it, then please become a Patron.
Its easy to support the project with a monthly subscription via Patreon.
Patreon is a crowd-funding platform popular with YouTube content creators, musicians, and webcomic artists. It allows artists to obtain funding from their fans or patrons, on a recurring basis, or per work of art.
Atem Project on Patreon
Patrons will get special access to Atem online and live events, and influence the project schedule and roadmap.
Currently the subscription funds Lasse directly.
Software Development Services
If you use Atem at work, or are considering it, please contact Lasse directly.
Using his services will surely make your product better, and can begin with a short video-call consultation. Lasse is currently available for long-term development contracts beginning in November 2016.
If your project requires more time than one person can provide, Lasse can draw on a network of other developers familiar with the technology who can join your project and hit the ground running.
If you are a journalist would like to write a feature about the project, we'll gladly answer all your questions.
If you have any other ideas about how to support us, drop us a line and let us know!
