StreamGear Fuses Smartphone and Dedicated Cameras into New Live Video Production Paradigm with VidiMo

Video content creators ranging from professionals to social media enthusiasts can soon have a better way to share their vision with their audience through high-quality live productions. Streaming solutions startup StreamGear Inc. will come out of stealth mode at tomorrow's StreamGeeks Summit conference in New York City by launching VidiMo, a new hardware-and-app combination that turns a smartphone and external video source into a full-fledged, virtual video production and transmission facility.

Providing an easier way to create and share engaging live video content, the VidiMo system enables a single person with a smartphone and a video camera to produce multi-source, television-style shows that can be streamed live, recorded or both. While smartphone camera quality has improved over the years, it's still no match for the rich creative functionality -- such as optical zoom, tactile focus, iris control and depth of field -- of a dedicated video or DSLR camera. 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 -- the Video director on Mobile -- enables anyone to become a social media video 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 VidiMo's extensive, advanced features and fast, intuitive interface also enable producers to create visually-compelling, professional-looking live shows in real time without needing to edit and upload them later.

The VidiMo system consists of the VidiMo Go hardware and VidiMo App software for iOS and Android smartphones. VidiMo Go's innovative physical design forms a complete handheld production solution, acting as a capture device; attaching any size of smartphone to a professional or sports/action camera; and allowing flexible positioning of the phone for easy interaction with the app. VidiMo Go captures live HDMI and analog audio signals into the smartphone, and is powered by an interchangeable, rechargeable battery. The VidiMo Go hardware's unique combination of functionality and ergonomics led to it being selected as a finalist in the 2019 International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) by the Industrial Designers Society of America.

The iPhone Plays Its Part In Glensounds New Post ISDN Commentary and amp; Reporting Units

Glensound have supplied around 10,000 ISDN units to broadcasters around the world.  Although ISDN is still the most reliable and trusted option for audio links, it is in decline, as broadcasters look towards IP and HD Voice mobile options.  We are in a transitional period however, as the post ISDN options do not offer the ease of use and huge compatibility that the long established ISDN connections do.

On the tracks of controversy Posted: 06/10/2010
On the tracks of  controversy An earthquake that nearly destroyed the entire city. A mayor, who loves to provoke. And 11,000 Sicilians who enjoy debating. A lot of material for a documentary that the Austrian filmmaker Philipp Kaindl recorded with the FSB 6 fluid head, the Speed Lock 75 CF tripod, and the Reporter LED camera light all products from Sachtler, a Vitec Group brand.

In 1968, an earthquake hit the city of Salemi in Sicily and caused severe damage. After that, only some of the destroyed houses were rebuilt. Mayor Vittorio Sgarbi's offer is supposed to bring relief: Interested buyers get one of the damaged houses for one euro, under the condition that the buyers restore them to their original style within two years at their own expense. However, this offer has not been met with approval by everyone in Salemi.
