mimoLive 4.3: Social Media Content for Your NDI® Workflow

Germering, September 8th, 2018 – Version 4.3 of the Apple Design Award winning live video production application mimoLive – The Multi-In, Multi-Out Live Video Engine for the Mac is now available from Boinx Software. Integration of social media content such as Facebook comments, Facebook reactions and Facebook page likes along with Twitter tweets, Instagram photos and more is the focus of the release which also features numerous enhancements and fixes.

“Our commitment to provide the best live streaming application on the Mac continues with this latest release focused on features most requested by visitors to our NAB booth,” says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. “Engaging the audience is the holy grail of live video and the best way to do this is by allowing users to interact with the hosts and the live video.”

“Software-driven IP workflows are quickly becoming ubiquitous in video production, with NDI® being the most widely adopted IP technology on the market accessible to millions of customers today. Products like mimoLive create opportunities for customers that did not previously exist,” said Michael Kornet, executive vice president and general manager of NDI for NewTek.

Facebook Comments

Moderating and answering comments on air is the key to successful audience engagement. mimoLive now offers an affordable and easy way to monitor incoming comments and to put them on air for the audience to read along. Comments can be shown as a continuous flow or one by one. The new Social Media source lets you grab the comments of any live video stream your Facebook account has access to.

Facebook Reactions

User reactions to your live stream are a great way to let viewers participate. For example you can let them vote on an issue and display the results in near real-time in your stream. Audiences love to give feedback like this and it’s a great way to ensure a high level of interaction with your post.

Facebook Page Likes

A bigger audience is always better and giving them the gratification of seeing the counter go up in your live stream when they click on that Like button on your page will help you to grow yours. The counter can be linked to any of your pages and shows the number of Likes in almost real-time.

Twitter, Instagram And More

mimoLive already offers integration with Twitter, allowing you to moderate tweets and show a stream of your favorites. You can also easily show photos from Instagram in your live video and get the chat messages from your Twitch stream. The Screen Capture source also lets you capture content from almost any discussion or comments platform like Discord.

Out Of The Box Ideas

mimoLive also includes a way to let viewers control a PTZ camera via Twitter hashtags or commands in Facebook comments. For example, this would let you set up a camera in a show room and viewers could decide what the want to look at. This experience is almost magical and ensures a high level of interaction with your live stream which is good for your ranking.

Playout via NDI and SDI

Providing this content to your workflow is possible by playing out the graphics with transparency via NDI® and SDI. This makes it easy to integrate mimoLive with your existing equipment.
