Jeff, Alessondra and their family just rounded up the 5th season of Alessondra's Great Horned Owl Cam, streaming live 24/7 from Oklahoma City via UStream and Facebook. Jeff uses mimoLive to produce the multi-camera program, including live weather data from his own weather station. Alessondra and Jeff go live on the Who & A Show every now and then to answer viewers questions and give updates on the owls development.
Did you know that you can let mimoLive create video in just about any resolution you want? If you want to fill a 320x320 web banner, or want to produce portrait video in 1080x1920, or drive a billboard that has 4096x320 pixels, mimoLive can do it. But you have to enter the resolution every time you create a new document, which is why there are presets for the most common video sizes.
mimoLive 2.8.2 now adds two more presets:
- 2160p 4K UHDTV (3860x2160) - which is the format used for 4K video for TV and web
- DCI 4K (4096x2160) - which is the format used for movies and the cinema
PTZ cameras are great because they allow you to move the camera without a dedicated camera operator.
PTZOptics makes great PTZ cameras with high quality video output via HDMI, SDI or USB 3, which you can easily capture in mimoLive using an SDI or HDMI grabber or directly via USB 3 for the respective models.
mimoLive 2.8.2 adds a PTZOptics Controller which not only allows you to remotely control pan, tilt and zoom of the camera, but also to save and recall up to 8 camera positions. You can easily switch between a wide angle shot and several close ups, for example on different people on a stage.
mimoLive supports using multiple PTZOptics cameras simultaneously, so you can make a two camera production look like you used 16 cameras.
Jason Jenkins of the DVEStore has produced a quick video tutorial on how to use the PTZOptics Controller.
Learn more about the PTZOptics Controller in the mimoLive Manual.
Chris Enns runs the @U2 podcast and after doing some test runs he live streamed the first episode using Boinx mimoLive. He invited four guests to join him using mimoCall. On the podcast a panel of 5 discussed the album Passengers, listening to the songs and sharing their experience. All podcast guests are located in different places and joined the live stream via mimoCall invitations.
Chris and his guests were amazed about the ease of use and the many layer options. Chris used mimoCall to get his guests into the lifestream and says "mimoCall works as good if not better like Hangout or others"
