Vimeo and Livestream Announced Mevo Plus



Vimeo and Livestream announced their first product integrations as well as the launch of Mevo Plus, an all-new edition of Livestream’s pocket-sized event camera. With the new integrations, users of Mevo Plus, Mevo, and Studio software are able to instantly stream to their Vimeo Live accounts, allowing for a seamless and high-quality experience.

Mevo Plus comes with enhancements to the critically-acclaimed Mevo camera, delivering faster data transmission speeds, increased range of use, stronger Wi-Fi performance, reduced network interference, and improved stability. These launches follow Vimeo’s acquisition of Livestream, a deal that was announced in September and finalized on October 18, 2017.

Highlighted features of Mevo Plus include:

Instantly stream to any platform:
Mevo Plus users will be able to 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 feed 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 between 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.

Mevo Plus is available for purchase in the U.S. at Best Buy, Amazon, B&H, Adorama, and getmevo.com, for the suggested retail price of $499.99. The first generation Mevo will continue to be available while supplies last for a suggested retail price of $299.99.


Livestream Will be Joining the Vimeo Family



For the past decade, Livestream has focused on enabling organizations to share experiences through live video, unlocking a world where every event is available live online. Livestream announced that it will be joining the Vimeo family. This news comes after an agreement for Vimeo to acquire Livestream.

There is significant overlap in the mission and strategies of Livestream and Vimeo: our relentless focus in enabling professional-quality video streaming, building easy-to-use yet powerful end-to-end video workflows, and empowering creators with the best tools to monetize and distribute their content. By joining forces, we will be able to provide our customers with the world’s best video service and continue to lead innovation in our industry.

In the immediate future, the Livestream team and brand will continue to operate as usual. In the long term, Livestream expects to integrate Livestream’s capabilities fully within Vimeo to offer the world’s best end-to-end video solution.

Future integrations with Vimeo will provide creators with the ability to stream to Vimeo Live using Livestream tools (Mevo, Studio), and direct access to all both platforms have to offer, including powerful distribution and marketing tools, monetization opportunities for rental, purchase or subscription, and over-the-top (OTT) technology across iOS, Android, Roku, Amazon, Samsung, and more.


Vimeo Launches Vimeo Business Service



Vimeo logoOnline video distribution service Vimeo has been working hard to build its reputation as “the world’s best creative community.” Vimeo launched when the internet video market began to take off during the previous decade. Realizing that the company would never be able to compete with YouTube on a macro level, Vimeo refocused itself as a purveyor of tools and services for independent video producers and filmmakers. Over time, Vimeo has introduced things like digital sales and subscription services that make it easy for producers to sell their videos online.

In its latest move to expand its offerings, Vimeo is introducing Vimeo Business:

…our community is the driving force behind Vimeo Business. Over time, you’ve given us tons of feedback about what you need most: the ability engage with customers and generate leads, market new products, and seamlessly collaborate with colleagues. We built Vimeo Business precisely to address all those things and more.

Some key features of Vimeo Business:

  • Unlimited bandwidth in the Vimeo player with no weekly limits, and the ability to upload up to 5TB total of video.
  • In-depth video stats when you connect Vimeo to your Google Analytics dashboard.

  • Powerful privacy: password protection, domain-level privacy, and private link sharing.
