Vimeo and Livestream debut upgraded live streaming camera, Mevo Plus

Vimeo and Livestream announced a new pocket-sized live streaming camera this week, following the recent acquisition which closed on October 18, 2017.

The Mevo Plus expands on the company’s Mevo camera, adding faster data transmission speeds, increased range, reduced interference and improved stability.

“The past month has been incredibly affirming: Vimeo and Livestream are united in our commitment to democratize the storytelling process and give more creators access to capabilities that were previously limited to a select few,” said Anjali Sud of Vimeo. “Mevo Plus is a remarkable tool that puts the power of a TV studio in your pocket, and is the first camera that integrates directly with the Vimeo platform. We are excited to launch deeper integrations in the coming months that will make live event production infinitely easier.”

Highlights Include:

  • Instantly stream to any platform: Mevo Plus users will be able to instantly stream to Vimeo Live and Livestream, as well as Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. Mevo Plus will include all recent Mevo software updates including features such as electronic image stabilization, Full HD 1080p streaming, and 4K recording, making it one of the most versatile video cameras available.
  • Upgraded hardware: A powerful new 802.11ac Wi-Fi chip combined with Bluetooth 4.1 deliver top of the line wireless connectivity. Mevo Plus users will have significantly more versatility for their broadcasts with over 100 feet of range, more than 5X the first generation Mevo camera. The introduction of 2×2 MIMO antennas allow for faster data transmission speeds, strengthened connectivity in noisy environments and increased connection range.
  • Live editing tools: In-app editing tools give Mevo Plus users the ability to cut, pan, and zoom between multiple live shots, delivering the same storytelling capabilities used in professional live TV productions. Sophisticated face detection and advanced scene analysis power Autopilot mode, which chooses the most interesting shot and edits the stream for the user.

The Mevo Plus is available for purchase now for $499.99 at outlets such as Best Buy, Amazon, B&H, Adorama, and online at getmevo.com.
