Testing live streaming software has become my new hobby because live streaming video is engaging, fun and it rocks!
Every once in a while, you come across some new software that just blows you away, and you instantly see how it can be a big help with what you’re doing in your business, as well as being just plain brilliant to play with.
That’s just the kind of experience I’ve had recently with new kid on the live streaming software block, MimoLive, which is styled as a ‘multi-input, multi-output live video engine’, and is manufactured by Boinx Software.
The description might be a bit of a mouthful, but this live streaming software really is the cat’s meow, in terms of its ability to integrate video, graphics, live feeds, and text, and then generate some really slick output from all that.
Big shout out to Ray Milidoni from the Razor Sharp Show for putting me onto this software. Love ya' Ray.
Here's the original live stream of the video above on Facebook.
Some Practical Uses for Live Streaming Software
For $27 per month in a non-commercial install, MimoLive allows you to do all of the following:
- Bring in multiple sources of video and audio, for instance from video cameras, webcams, mobile device video, and WiFi network video
- Capture windows off your computer
- Input static media files, such as logos and ‘stingers’, which are high-impact, short-duration sequences intended to quickly capture attention
- Bring in live social media feeds and live chats
- Display data visualization, which represents figures graphically
- Include multiple camera angles and sophisticated graphics, and integrate all of it with any of the social media to really make your live stream look unique.
- Do 360° live video streaming directly to YouTube.
- Generate streams of portrait video, or some other format of your choosing.
- Tailor your output format to suit your needs by positioning, scaling, cropping, and converting your video inputs
Advantages of using MimoLive
Any or all of these components can be mixed together to create a composite video which can be exported to YouTube or Facebook, or simply recorded to disc for later use. This live streaming software is absolutely perfect for generating a lot of high-quality content very quickly, with no post-production hassles, and it provides you with the kind of high quality video production that only the big guys used to have.
You can do live streaming, news web shows, special presentations and events, panel discussions, and just about anything else you can think of as a video production. This is the kind of output being produced at Chase Jarvis Live, This Week in Tech, Facebook Live and YouTube Live Streaming on a regular basis, and the MimoLive live streaming software can make that kind of presentation ultra-easy to produce.
The interface is very easy and intuitive to work with, and it doesn’t take much effort to get it up and running – we did it within just a couple hours of downloading the software. Commercial usage will oblige you to pay for the higher-priced license, which is currently around $94, but for simple personal usage, you won’t need that kind of license and you can use it for your non-commercial school TV, events and conferences, video game streaming, worship services, community TV, or even a small office studio setup.
At this point, the software looks so good and so easy to use, that it will probably become our live streaming software of choice at RockStar Empires, which we’ll use to connect with all you entrepreneurs, so we can continue and expand on our exchange of ideas, and share our discoveries (like MimoLive!).
That means you can expect our future live streams to have a little more punch, and a little more life to them – and we’ll all have some fun with it.
Until next time – stay curious, and make some noise!
