Live Video Innovator Livestream Unleashes Movi
A First-of-its-kind Video Camera That Lets You Edit While You Film
Las Vegas - CES 2016(07 Jan 2016)
At the International CES, Livestream, the trailblazer in live event streaming and the world's leading B2B live video provider, will make a dramatic expansion into the consumer electronics market with the unveiling of Movi, the pocket-sized live event camera that let's you edit while you film. This category-creating live-editing camera helps busy consumers, organizations, and event producers seamlessly share the engaging stories of their live events by putting the power and capabilities of a multi-camera production studio in their hands. Movi's leading edge technology enables an entirely new kind of video sharing experience for a wide variety of uses – from concerts to conferences, sports to school plays, and the events that business owners of all sizes need to share online.
The sleek Movi camcorder fits in the palm of your hand, yet its 150-degree all glass lens and 4k sensor enable the simple yet powerful iOS app to control up to nine virtual HD cameras. Live editing includes the ability to pan, zoom, and cut between multiple live shots, providing the same storytelling capabilities used in professional live TV productions. Built-in people detection and movement tracking features even allow Movi to make camera movement and editing decisions automatically. Customers can easily share their fully edited videos immediately to their favorite social networks or simultaneously stream their event live with an optional subscription starting at less than $9 per month.
Jesse Hertzberg, CEO of Livestream, said, "Livestream creates products that enable anyone to share experiences through live video, unlocking a world where every event is available online. Unlike anything else on the market, Movi is packed with features and functionality that were previously only available to TV studios and companies willing to spend many thousands of dollars on equipment and manpower."
While a professional quality video requires multiple cameras with a dedicated film crew and often costs tens of thousands of dollars, Movi empowers anyone to easily produce a high-caliber, compelling video for an affordable price. Livestream, a well-established leader in sophisticated video hardware, has already begun manufacturing Movi, which will ship in early April for $399. Starting today Movi is available with a special $200 limited time pre-order discount at getmovi.com.
Mr. Hertzberg added, "Movi is an affordable and easy-to-use solution for anyone – regardless of video experience – to capture and share their life's most meaningful events with the production value these events deserve. Movi will revolutionize the way people capture and share their live events by allowing them to take true pride in the new way they share their stories and captivate their audiences through video."
