Creating and directing multi camera live shows can be very challenging. Tasks like switching the active camera, roll-in prerecorded sequences and adding layered graphical elements, such as lower-thirds to display names and titles, take your full attention.
Doing all of this as a one-person production while being in front of live camera seems almost impossible.

But what if there was a tool which allows you to get prepared for every scene of your show, a software which only needs one keystroke to perform multiple actions simultaneously, an instrument which you can form to your needs? mimoLive is the all-in-one solution for live streaming professionals and it supports NDI® input and NDI® playout.

mimoLive makes professional broadcast tools accessible for everyone.

Professional video switcher and live streaming for Mac

The live video workflow with mimoLive follows four major steps. First, capture your video footage using any given camera. Followed by the second step, the input into the computer. Conventional using professional graphic cards, externs SDI / HDMI Converter and more recently NDI 4 camcorders. Today we believe in the future of the network standard NDI 4, that’s why it is our recommendation to you to check if NDI 4 delivers good results for your sort of live video stream.

Encoding, switching videos stream, graphics and decoding at once

Once the video streams are coming into your Mac – it’s time for mimoLive™ to take over encoding, switching video streams, adding graphics and decoding the final stream. This is the third major workflow step for the director of the show. We enpower video producer to control comprehensive live shows by small teams.
Finally, mimoLive uses several presets for the major streaming platforms to simply your work life, and to make the fourth step of your workflow as easy as possible.

From Boinx Dictionary

What does mimo stand for?

MIMO is an acronym for multiple-input, multiple-output. Our mimoLive™ handles several multiple inputs of video and audio, to create a live video stream and sends it to several multiple-outputs like video streaming platforms and disk recordings.
Combine these three elements and you will get, mimoLive, the best way to describe the characterises of our live video editing and streaming software developed by Boinx Software.
