In 2015, one of the biggest trends, and the most wanted feature is Live streaming. At that time at SXSW, the Meerkat app created a sensation; a month later released Periscope stole that excitement when it launched and then Facebook has released its own video feature. In to the S6 Edge+ and flagship Galaxy Note 5 phones, YouTube live streaming was included.
For general customers, to capitalize on this trend, Livestream Company has created its first hardware which is called Movi in 2016. For the people who want something more than the reliable and professional connection and camera that is found on the phone, they developed the brand new 4K live streaming camera.
In the April t was released for the price $399 which is 2 inches wide and about 2.5b inches long. At the top of the device, this camera has red accents on the microphone grill and the camera is given a nice, soft-touch finish in black or white. Though it is not as wide as on GoPro which is of 170-degree lens, it is wide as most of the small cameras with a view of the 150-degree field. The battery once plugged in will last for an hour. The Movi is all about the software it uses than the hardware; its software is the reason why it has got its craze.
During editing, cropping the shot is the most popular thing done with the 4K footage. You can even do this without losing much quality, resolution as all of us don’t have TV, monitors of 4K or the bandwidth that is required to support 4k’s streaming content. Usage of this idea and its implementation is the advantage to the Movi.
A 4k camera is built by the Livestream, but the main functionality of it is not to provide beautiful imagery. The company focussed on building the software which lets you crop in that 4K image. For the purposes such as mimicking a multi-camera setup, completely different shots, live streaming is used with just an iPhone and one camera which is pocket-sized. With just a one camera you can perform several critical tasks such as cropping an image into shoulders and tight head shot and then snapping back to a wider angle quickly and then again taking the close up of someone else can be done very simply.
This leaves you with the two options contrast to the traditional setups being used. More equipment, more chances of the risk of things going wrong and issues arising, more camera operators will have to be implemented to use multiple cameras. Or only one camera can be used. For the entire event, you will be stuck with the same shot it is like a GoPro. You have to perform all the actions such as zooming out and zooming in, titling, planning if you use camcorder which is more capable, and that leads to no margin or chance for the error and works more efficiently.
