mimoLive State of the Union

First of all, a big thank you to all past, current and future users! Your support means the world to us and seeing what you do with mimoLive keeps us going.

Originally, we were planning to post about every update for mimoLive, but engineering keeps them coming so fast, we can’t keep up.

Past

The past 12 months have seen more than 40 releases of mimoLive, including all the betas. The complete list of new features, enhancements and fixes is about mile long, but here are the highlights:

  • New Output Destinations: This allows you to save different file formats, stream to multiple streaming platforms, add auxiliary audio monitors for moderators, operators, studio audience and more.
  • Audience Social Media Interaction: To engage your audience in a conversation, add social comments and reactions from Facebook, YouTube or Twitter to your live show. mimoLive™ can even give your audience access to your PTZ camera controls by sending command-comments over Twitter.
  • Multiviews: Keep an eye on your sources and control the Switcher layers and NDI® PTZ cameras.
  • Instant Replay with Remote Control Surface support.
  • Source groups and adjustable main window layout.
  • Audio Mixes: Each destination can now have individual audio mixes, for example for multi-language workflows.
  • Source Performance Monitor: Find out if your sources perform as desired.
  • mimoCall: Added support for H.264 and advanced monitoring to improve connection quality.
  • Web Browser Capture source: surf the web comfortably.
  • Social Media Source: Get comments, likes, reactions and more from any post your account has access to.
  • Levels filter: Quickly adjust the white balance to make camera sources match each other.
  • Matte Choker filter: Adjust the alpha channel of video sources.
  • New Streaming providers: BoxCast, Periscope, screen9.
  • Sport Graphics pack: A set of sources and layers for sports and games with scoring & timing, tournament, team roster, athlete information and more.

Present

Currently, we’re beta testing mimoLive 4.7 which will add:

  • Kiosk mode that turns on full screen playout when you open a document
  • Pause, play, rewind and fast forward for movie sources in the Placer layer
  • Also coming in the next beta is support for RTMPS

Future

We've got big plans for this year. If you look closely, you can find a small teaser for a major new feature coming soon in the screenshot at the top of this post. We'll keep you posted.

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…

  • Layer sets, yes, you'll make a lot of people happy with this, myself included.
  • Hi, glad to hear about all the work going into Mimolive! I love it. I have a multi-cam setup in my studio and the only thing I can't do in Mimolive yet that I've really wanted to do is an "auto-pilot" feature that would switch between select sources/layers automatically. I do music performance with Mimolive and would love to see this! One other slight issue I seem to be noticing is some light clicking sound in my recorded content, which sounds like a word clock issue with my digital audio setup, although everything is set to record @ 44.1kHz. I'm not sure if you've had any issues but it is something I'm trying to track down, it my be my system. I'm using a Behringer X32 mixer as my audio and recordings from that board don't seem to have the issue, so it might be a software issue, it's worth mentioning since you are asking. Thanks to the product team for great work!
  • @"Bill Vincent" Thank you for the kind words. There is a layer called "Auto Video Switcher" which can do round-robin or random switching of video sources, maybe that is something you could use?

    How would you like the auto-pilot feature to work?

    Can you please try to set the audio to 48kHz and see if that works? We hear from a couple of customers about this issue but don't see it on our development/testing machines. What Mac and what OS version are you using?

  • @"Bill Vincent" It has recently come to our attention that there is an issue with USB devices on the newer Mac models with T2 chip. There are a couple of workarounds like using a Thunderbolt 3 dock or temporarily disabling the "timed" service on Mac OS.
