mimoLive (formerly BoinxTV) is like a full blown TV studio at a fraction of the cost. Combine live camera video, clips, photos, 3D graphics, lower thirds, audio and more to create a stunning recording or live video.
With mimoLive, your students easily create a newscast for your school and record events like lectures, sports, concerts, and more. For most students, it is a much more satisfying and motivating experience to have an active role in making a television show than just watching one. It gives students an immediate sense of achievement—it's fun and motivating for those in front of the camera, but also for the operating studio team, to see the results immediately. Creating documentaries, conducting interviews, and developing events gives the students limitless possibilities—building a learning experience that is personally relevant to them, that is personally created, written, edited, and photographed by them.
