StreamGear’s VidiMo™ hardware-and-app combination lets any user become a Video Director on Mobile. Together, the VidiMo Go hardware and VidiMo Show app turn a smartphone and HDMI video source into a full-fledged, handheld, virtual video production and transmission studio. The easiest way to create and share engaging, high-quality, live video content, the VidiMo system enables a single operator with a smartphone and camera to produce multi-source, television-style shows that can be streamed live, recorded or both.
The VidiMo system enables anyone to become a social media star or citizen journalist. In its simplest use, VidiMo lets users capture an external HDMI video source into their iOS or Android smartphone and stream it. But the VidiMo Show app is also packed with a broad range of advanced features to help producers craft a high-quality, professional-looking show. And its intuitive interface is so fast and easy to operate, producers can create and stream a visually compelling live show in real time without needing to edit and upload it later.
While smartphone camera quality has improved in recent years, it’s still no match for the rich creative functionality of a dedicated video or DSLR camera – such as greater optical zoom, tactile focus, iris control and depth of field. VidiMo lets users have the best of both worlds, bringing an HDMI video source into their smartphone and combining it with the phone’s camera and other sources.
VidiMo Go’s innovative physical design forms a complete handheld production solution, acting as both an HDMI capture device and camera mounting system to position the phone for easy, touchscreen user control and program monitoring. The VidiMo Go hardware captures live HDMI signals and analog audio into an iOS or Android smart phone, and is powered by an interchangeable, long-life, rechargeable battery. Available in two mounting configurations for professional and compact/action cameras, VidiMo Go securely attaches any size smartphone as a touch control surface for the VidiMo Show app. A multi-button remote control triggers user-configured app functions.
The VidiMo Show app lets users customize unlimited scenes in advance, each with its own layout and combination of live video (the HDMI source, or the phone’s front or rear camera), audio, graphics, text, and pre-recorded media clips. Users can easily switch between these scenes on the fly while live streaming or recording, with effects such as lower-third graphic overlays, on-screen telestration, and animated transitions further enhancing the visual experience. The resulting creations can be instantly broadcast live on social media (with presets for YouTube™ Live, Facebook™ Live, and Twitch™) or to a private streaming server. Shows can also be saved locally to the smartphone’s camera roll for rebroadcasting, post production, or archiving.Learn more
