StreamGear’s New VidiMo Show App Puts a Powerful Streaming Studio in the Palm of Your Hand

Feature-laden mobile app lets content producers capture, enrich, and stream their stories with only a smartphone and their creativity

December 1, 2020 — Reading, PA: Video solutions start-up StreamGear Inc. has unveiled its standalone VidiMo Show live streaming production app, designed to let any smartphone user stream video like a pro. Featuring the same powerful software interface as the company’s award-winning VidiMo Go multi-camera production system, VidiMo Show enables users to easily create professional-looking live streams and recorded shows with nothing more than their smartphone.

Intuitive enough for novice streamers yet powerful enough for experienced producers, VidiMo Show enables content creators to bring an engaging new level of sophistication to their live shows or to record visually rich programs in real time without time-consuming editing. VidiMo Show helps users increase and captivate their audience by elevating content such as ‘how-to’ videos, product reviews, live worship services, music performances, news interviews, and training courses into compelling, polished productions.

Storytellers can produce, direct, and star in their own show, or stay behind the scenes while crafting amazing looking programs.  VidiMo Show lets users customize unlimited scenes in advance, each with its own layout and combination of live video (using the phone’s front or rear camera), audio, graphics, text, and pre-recorded media clips. Users can easily switch between these scenes on the fly while live streaming or recording, with effects such as lower-third graphic overlays, on-screen telestration, and animated transitions further enhancing the visual experience.

The resulting creations can be instantly broadcast live on social media (with presets for YouTube™ Live, Facebook™ Live, and Twitch™) or to a private streaming server. Shows can also be saved locally to the smartphone’s camera roll for rebroadcasting, post production, or archiving. As users’ audiences and production ambitions grow, they can scale up by connecting a DSLR or mirrorless camera and microphone through the optional VidiMo Go hardware (available by the end of this year) to capture the highest quality video and audio.

“The VidiMo product family is mobile video production as it was meant to be,” said Darryl Spangler, CEO of StreamGear Inc. “While our VidiMo Go hardware-and-app combination is ideal for creating multi-angle productions that incorporate external sources, offering VidiMo Show as a standalone app makes its intuitive capabilities available to millions of smartphone users with ideas they want to share through video. From tutorials and unboxing reviews to worship and live events, VidiMo Show will help them tell their story beautifully.”

The VidiMo Show app is available immediately for Android and iOS devices through the Google Play Store and iOS App Store, respectively. Users can sign up for a free 15-day trial of the app by visiting https://streamgear.io/vidimo.

About StreamGear – StreamGear (www.streamgear.io) is hyper-focused on developing tools that make it easy for users to create high-quality video. The company’s leadership team has more than five decades of combined experience in the video production, digital media, and live streaming markets. StreamGear’s first product, VidiMo, turns a smartphone and video source into a full-fledged, virtual video production and transmission facility, making it easier than ever for professionals and enthusiasts to create and share engaging live video content.

StreamGear Wins 2020 NAB Show Product of the Year Award for VidiMo Go Live Streaming Production Solution

Smartphone-driven content creation suite recognized in Streaming category as one of this year’s most significant and innovative new offerings

October 22, 2020 — Reading, PA: Streaming solutions innovator StreamGear Inc. has been honored as the winner of a 2020 NAB Show Product of the Year Award for the company’s smartphone-empowered VidiMo Go handheld, live video production system. Now in their second year, the official NAB Show Product of the Year Awards recognize the industry’s most significant and promising new products and technologies. This year’s winners were announced earlier this week during the NAB Show New York digital experience.

The VidiMo Go hardware-and-app combination turns a smartphone and HDMI video source (such as a camera) into a full-featured, virtual production and streaming studio. Enabling a single operator to produce multi-source, television-style shows, VidiMo – short for Video director on Mobile – offers an easier way for video professionals and enthusiasts to create and stream engaging, high-quality, live productions.

NAB Show Product of the Year Awards entries were judged by a panel of industry professionals, who based their decisions on criteria including innovation, function, and technical advancements.  New this year, winners comprise exhibiting companies from the 2020 NAB Show and the 2020 NAB Show New York.

Combining the battery powered VidiMo Go hardware with the powerful VidiMo Show app, VidiMo seamlessly blends the compact convenience and intuitive ease of a smartphone-based interface with the creative versatility of a dedicated video or DSLR camera. Users can simply capture the camera’s HDMI output into their iOS or Android smartphone for live streaming, or use the app’s advanced features to create sophisticated live shows that combine the HDMI source with the phone’s camera, graphic overlays, pre-recorded video clips, and more. The resulting programs can be streamed live to social media, CDNs, or private servers, or recorded on the smartphone for subsequent on-demand distribution.

The VidiMo Show app will also be offered as a standalone smartphone application – without the VidiMo Go hardware – for producers who do not require an HDMI input. A free trial of the standalone app will be available in early November.

“Nominees like StreamGear reflect the spirit of the NAB Show community by advancing and changing the landscape through dynamic innovation,” said NAB Executive Vice President of Conventions and Business Operations Chris Brown. “The 2020 NAB Show Product of the Year Awards highlight the best of what’s new and they have quickly become the premier launchpad for breakthroughs at the intersection of media, entertainment and technology.”

“We’re excited and grateful that VidiMo Go has been honored with an NAB Show Product of the Year Award,” said Darryl Spangler, CEO of StreamGear Inc. “From journalists, mainstream celebrities, and social media influencers to educators, worship leaders, and corporate marketers, more people are using live streaming to communicate their ideas this year than ever before. VidiMo makes it simple for both media professionals and first-time streamers to create high-quality productions, and our upcoming standalone app offering will put its intuitive power in even more people’s hands.”

Now, with beta units in the hands – literally – of Early Adopter Program members, attendees at the 2020 NAB Show will have their first chance to experience VidiMo’s elegant ease for themselves. StreamGear will make their first-ever appearance at the event from April 19 to 22 with dual exhibit presences in their own booth, number C12439, and in the CineCentral pavilion at C9232.

VidiMo – short for Video director on Mobile – turns a smartphone and HDMI video source (such as a camera) into a full-fledged, virtual production and transmission studio, enabling a single operator to produce multi-source, television-style shows that can be streamed live, recorded or both. Offering an easier way for both video professionals and enthusiasts to create and stream engaging, high-quality, live productions, the new hardware-and-app combination enables anyone to become a multi-camera producer, social media video star or citizen journalist.

Combining the battery-powered VidiMo Go hardware with the powerful VidiMo Show app, VidiMo lets content creators combine the compact convenience, increasing camera quality and intuitive ease of today’s latest smartphones with the superior creative functionality of a dedicated video or DSLR camera. Users can simply capture the camera’s HDMI signal into their iOS or Android smartphone for live streaming, or use the app’s elegant interface and advanced features to create sophisticated live shows that combine the HDMI input with the phone’s camera and other sources.

The innovative VidiMo Go hardware doubles as both an HDMI capture device and camera mounting system to position the phone for convenient, touchscreen user control and program monitoring. Meanwhile, the VidiMo Show app provides a complete live production toolkit on the smartphone, letting the user be the director, operator and on-screen talent all at once.

For each show, users can switch between fully-customizable scene layouts that mix live video and audio sources – including the HDMI source and the phone’s front or rear camera – with graphics, text and pre-recorded media clips. A multi-button remote control enables users to trigger app functions even while performing live in front of the camera. Shows can be recorded on the smartphone as they happen or streamed live to popular third-party services including YouTube™ Live, Facebook™ Live and Twitch™.

“We are very eager to showcase VidiMo to NAB Show attendees for the first time,” said Darryl Spangler, CEO of StreamGear Inc. “While CES was the perfect stage for introducing it to video hobbyists and consumer technology enthusiasts, the NAB Show is the ultimate destination for content professionals seeking to create superior visual experiences, and VidiMo offers them a better way to share their vision with their audiences.”
