mimoLive 4.8b1: Layer Sets and New Templates

Some big things are coming with mimoLive 4.8b1: You can now save the state of the Layer Stack into a Layer Set and recall it at any time you want with the press of a single button. This allows you to seamlessly change between various scenes or move your show through several phases with different visuals.

We've also started to rework the New Document dialog to make more room for templates. In the future, there will be templates for various use cases that get you up and running more quickly.

May Mor: Working out with mimoLive

"In today’s world, volume of content is very important," say May and Tal Mor, the producers of MayMor.tv. mimoLive saves them all the hassle of post production, enabling them to create a large amount of quality long video content very easily: „I simply edit our show on-the-fly during the live broadcast. By the end of the broadcast we have a high quality and edited video ready to be uploaded to social media, " Tal explains. The Mors value mimoLive's cool features, giving them a lot of possibilities to be creative and to design their own beautiful graphic package for the show. mimoLive's built-in support for right-to-left script helps them with the Hebrew on-screen information and the News Crawler runs in the correct direction. “It’s incredibly easy & fun to use. We’re very happy we found mimoLive."

NDI® Show Case

Every now and then, we get out of the programming cave and join the real world for some live video production fun. We want to see first hand what the mimoLive user experience is like. This gives us lot of ideas for new features and, sometimes, an incentive to fix things that aren’t that great. Our latest adventure was recording the presentations at Codebeam Lite conference in Munich with a 100% digital NDI® based setup. Get a complete equipment list and learn more about the setup…
