Livestream's US$399 Movi streams from multiple 'cameras,' using only its single lens

Mark Hachman | Jan. 4, 2016
Using some computational magic and an iOS app, this handheld video camera lets you livestream like a pro.

Cutting back and forth is as simple as tapping the video window on the index page—the live video will snap back and forth, as you decide. You can also set your own fixed shots, such as a custom box that includes two of the speakers on a panel of four. If you like, you can also pan the virtual camera right and left by dragging its framing box—if you drag quickly, the pan will execute quickly; a slower pan will take longer. By default, however, the Movi’s software will transition between each editing choice smoothly.

Movi’s also smart enough that, if you so choose, the software will start making intelligent decisions on its own. Like some videoconferencing software, Movi will identify the person speaking and focus on him or her. While it’s still possible to make a poor editing decision, such as accidentally panning the video onto the speaker’s shoe, Movi does what it can to make everything look like a $30,000 editing studio is producing the stream.
