Graphics Engine

mimoLive Screenshot
  • mimoLive’s powerful graphics engine is based on the concept of layers. Combine and customize layers to compose the final video output: mimoLive’s program output
  • Graphical elements include text, images, standard lower thirds, station logos, news tickers, clocks, countdowns, background animations and more.
  • Data driven elements include sports scoring, weather maps, stock charts, Twitter feeds and more.
  • Layers are highly customizable, allowing you to easily adapt your mimoLive template to your own CI look and feel.
  • Create your own complex Layers, including application logic, for example to build entire gaming engines. This allows broadcasters to easily implement and test new ideas with very little investment.

Browser Control:
mimoLive Remote

  • Make it much easier for the operator to run the show by providing only the controls they need.
  • Use your iPad, iPhone, Android or desktop computer via the browser.
  • Distribute responsibilities among a group of operators, for example when producing a morning announcement with your students by running multiple different surfaces on different devices controlling the same document.
  • Use one remote control surface for camera switching, one for operating lower thirds, one for keeping score in a sports game.
  • Free mimoLive Remote App for iOS (available on the App Store) discovers all running mimoLive instances in your local network and lets you connect to them quickly and easily.

Video Switcher

  • Built-in switcher supports up to nine video sources.
  • Connecting all video sources directly to mimoLive gives you the ability to use multiple sources at the same time on screen, for example to display two or more camera angles simultaneously.
  • If you need to switch more video sources, mimoLive supports direct control of Blackmagic Design ATEM switchers through an add-on.
  • Use mimoLive for easy play out of graphics and videos to the ATEM switcher or to add graphics to the video feed from the switcher and stream or record the resulting mix.

Record to disk

  • mimoLive records a high resolution file of the live edited video to disk at the same time as streaming and playing out through SDI or on a second screen.
  • Record in H.264 for immediate upload to a video hosting platform.
  • Record in ProRes for use in Final Cut Pro X and other video editing apps if you still want to do post production.
  • Record in ProRes 4444 to preserve transparency in the alpha channel. Quickly create graphics like animated lower thirds for your Final Cut Pro X or Adobe Premiere projects.


  • Keep an eye on your sources with the configurable multi-view.
  • Control the Switcher layer by clicking on a source in the multi-view to switch it live.
  • Two multi-views give you maximum flexibility: Use one multi-view in the main application window to make most use of your screen and put the second multi-view on an external screen for maximum overview.
  • Control PTZ cameras directly in the multi-view
