Imagine, for example, you are a biologist at a Marine Aquarium. You’re giving a presentation on the animals in your fish tank to your visitors on site and over a live stream on the internet using photos on a big screen to give the audience a closer look. The fish don’t follow a script and you have to pick your photos as the fish swim into sight. We created PhotoPresenter for iOS for just such a use case. You can browse your photo library invisible to the audience, pick the right photo and bring it on to your presentation screen seamlessly. You can use tools such as a spotlight or a pointer to highlight certain features of the fish. In the latest version of PhotoPresenter for iOS, we’ve added NDI® playout so that you can easily display the output not only to your presentation screen but also send it over the (Wifi) network into your live stream production system using mimoLive or other production systems that support NDI® input.
mimoLive 4.1 is now available for download. The top new features are:
- You can now control NDI PTZ Cameras directly in the Multiview. Overlays allow you to directly control pan, tilt and zoom as well as set and recall stored positions.
- Sources in the Source Repository are now sorted into folders and can be reordered for a better overview.
- If your audio interface supports multiple channels, you can now select which channels are used for playout in the Audio Output destinations.
In addition to that, we've also improved the handling of NDI Sources and fixed a lot of issues.
Important: Facebook comments are currently disabled pending a review from Facebook.
For the full list of new features, enhancements and fixes, please see the release notes.
Unfortunately, Facebook recently shut down some of the APIs that mimoLive is using to fetch the comments for a Facebook live stream. This caused problems when streaming to Facebook regardless of whether you were using the Comments feature or not.
To address these problems, we had to temporarily turn off the Comments feature for Facebook live streams beginning with mimoLive 4.0.3.
Currently, the comments feature only works with YouTube comments. We've changed the way mimoLive accesses the Facebook comments and are currently awaiting review by Facebook. We'll release an update to mimoLive as soon as Facebook approves the changed API use. Thank you for your patience.
