Theta S: 3D Print Your Own Tripod Mount

The Ricoh Theta-S is a great 360° camera which you can use with mimoLive to stream live to YouTube 360° Live. But it has one blunder: If the camera is mounted on a tripod you can't access the USB port nor the HDMI port anymore. That's why Achim designed this camera holder: It houses the camera in a way that the USB and HDMI cables can be left connected while sitting on a tripod. The plugs are sliding into slots that work like a strain reliefs. Additionally, some space is left at the bottom to incorporate a 1/4" tripod screw nut.

mimoLive 2.8: Introducing mimoCall

Interviews and Panel Discussions for Podcasters and Broadcasters Reinvented

mimoLive 2.8 contains the most exciting new feature in mimoLive ever: Getting reports from a field reporter, hosting a virtual panel discussion or conducting one-on-one interviews is now easier than ever before with mimoCall.

Your interview partners, panelists or field reporters get an invite link that they can just open in Chrome on their Mac, PC or Android device to be instantly connected to your mimoLive where you can use their video and audio just like any other video source.

(Safari on iOS does not yet support the technology used for mimoCall, so we are also developing an iOS client. Sign up here for the mimoCall iOS beta test.)

For your interview partners the experience is just like taking part in a multi-party video conference. They can hear each other and see the program out video.

mimoCall also allows you to share your screen so you can conduct remote demos or use a PowerPoint presentation.

Goldfish in Space: Behind-the-Scenes

"My favorite part? I loved all of it!" - that's how the kids taking part in the Goldfish Smiles Animation Xperience Workshop summed up their experience at the studio creating a stop motion film for the stop motion film competition.

Goldfish Smiles held a Animation Xperience Workshop to create a stop motion film for their stop motion film competition. They used iStopMotion for iPad to animate the story of three goldfish astronauts in space.

The kids at the workshop didn't have experience in animation and figured out how to use iStopMotion very quickly and created amazing results.

Take a look behind the scenes to discover how easy it is to tell your story with iStopMotion.
