Amp Up Your Live Streams to YouTube and Facebook with mimoLive

Puchheim, Germany – June 7, 2016 – Boinx Software has just announced the release of mimoLive, the multi-in, multi-out live video engine. A complete overhaul of the popular BoinxTV live video production system, mimoLive includes a number of exciting new features for optimal live streaming across multiple platforms and is the perfect solution for everything from school morning announcements and community TV, to events and conferences, podcasting and webinars, video game streaming and more. mimoLive features a new, easier to use interface, built-in live streaming, a robust 64-bit architecture and new layers for more creative freedom, among many other upgrades.

“I always wanted to have my own TV studio in my living room that I could operate easily and that would allow me to produce my own news show,” says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. “With mimoLive, that dream has come true for not just me, but a lot of people out there who have important messages to share but are lacking the resources needed to run a traditional broadcast. This new release is especially useful for teachers because they can offer their students the real, invaluable and exciting experience of creating their own TV program.”

mimoLive minimizes hassle and adds to the fun of live broadcasting by cutting down on production time. Giving users major bang for their buck, it includes powerful tools at an extremely affordable price. Easy to learn and master, mimoLive is the perfect on-the-go TV studio platform for everyone from the novice, such as schoolchildren producing their own weather channel to learn about weather systems, to the enthusiast podcaster, to the professional, who can easily integrate mimoLive's graphic power and versatility into an existing SDI broadcast workflow, for example to augment the Blackmagic Design ATEM family of switchers. The live video production system from Boinx Software offers the gamut of professional to wildly creative features that will satisfy every broadcaster’s dream.

mimoLive’s new key features include:

  • Live Streaming: Broadcast live video from sporting events, breaking newscasts, conferences, concerts, video games and more to YouTube, Facebook, Twitch or any other RTMP-based streaming service, without the need for any additional hardware. Simply set up your streaming service credentials, and start streaming.
  • Direct Manipulation in Layers: An upgrade to the popular layers feature in BoinxTV, users can now instantly and easily adjust all visual elements including graphics information and lower thirds within the recording, thanks to direct manipulation.
  • 64-bit Architecture: Boinx rebuilt many parts of mimoLive from scratch to make it more powerful and, at the same time, more stable. Taking advantage of the modern 64-bit hardware power, users can now add more video and graphics assets than ever before without the risk of running out of memory.
  • Frosted Glass Effects: Create great looking lower thirds and graphics with frosted glass effects. Thanks to a vast set of layers and visuals, any mimoLive broadcast will look ready for primetime, as if the pros at today’s major broadcasting companies had done it themselves.
  • New Interface, New Features: A landmark release, mimoLive has a brand new look and feel. Giving it a more professional look allowed Boinx to increase the usability of mimoLive, making it even more intuitive and convenient to use, so that everyone can enjoy it.

And more great new features!

  • Live-keying for users to key out green or blue screen or any background color they like in real time
  • High-resolution file recording straight to disk
  • A built-in video switcher that supports up to nine video sources
  • The ability to play out video in a user’s existing broadcasting environment, such as a projector on stage or to a live TV network feed

End of summer promotions on Mac and iOS apps from Boinx help you get back-to-school cool; an Editor’s Choice Award for iStopMotion for iPad proves it’s an A+ app

Puchheim, Germany – August 20, 2014 – With lazy summer days coming to a close, it’s time to step up the game again and prepare for the start of the coming school year. This year promises to be one to remember, and Boinx Software’s family of award-winning educational apps for Mac and iPad will be by your side in the classroom to create cool stuff and foster essential life skills. Helping both students and teachers to get their creative juices flowing more powerfully than ever before, Boinx is offering special promotions on BoinxTV, iStopMotion for iPad and Mac, FotoMagico and Mouseposé now through September 9th, making them a must-have on everyone’s back-to-school shopping list.

Film a stop motion animation illustrating stories from a foreign language class or record a timelapse of storm clouds forming above your town, start a weekly school news broadcast, compile a slideshow presentation with animations, video and funky transitions that will leave powerpoints in the dust, and let Mouseposé point it all out to your teachers and classmates - the possibilities for accelerating your learning experience are endless.

The end of summer doesn’t have to mean the end of fun. With the change in seasons and return of the school year comes new creative possibilities,” says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. “Limited-time cost savings on our educational apps have made the barrier of entry extremely low for kids and educators, allowing them to let their imaginations run wild with their devices.

iStopMotion for iPad is the Teacher’s Pet
Boinx Software’s tried and true products continue to receive industry accolades; most recently, Children’s Technology Review awarded Boinx with their esteemed Editor’s Choice Award for iStopMotion for iPad. According to Children’s Technology Review, the Editor's Choice Award is given to only the highest-quality children’s products in the interactive media category – “no fail” products, worthy of their cost, that are able to keep children engaged for days at a time.

Ride the Wave of Summer Savings Before It’s Too Late!

iStopMotion for iPad just 8.99 USD (10% off)
iStopMotion for iPad brings the classic stop motion animation technique into the modern age, allowing eager animators to create fun animations with just an iPad, imagination and whatever is lying around the classroom ready to come to life. In its review of the app, Children’s Technology Review says, “Every aspiring Walt Disney should have an app for iPad like iStopMotion, the king of the hill of animation software.

iStopMotion 3 for Mac just 44.99 USD (10% off)
The parent to iStopMotion for iPad, iStopMotion for Mac comes with advanced capabilities, while still being an accessible filmmaking tool for the masses. Boinx recently announced iStopMotion 3.6, which brings live view support for Nikon and Canon DSLR cameras, allowing animators with these cameras to enjoy the most popular feature, Onion Skinning. The creative classroom possibilities are endless – animate an otherwise boring diorama, make claymations in art class or animate figurines in a historical reenactment. Ben Lawson from Byte Revel noted its ease of use in a recent review, saying, “iStopMotion 3 for Mac makes stop motion animation a breeze.

FotoMagico 4 just 89.99 USD (10% off)
A fan favorite among both professional photographers and consumers, FotoMagico helps users organize summer memories into a stylish slideshow to look back on throughout the year, when laid-back pool days and cookouts are a fond and distant memory. The slideshow innovation doesn’t have to stop when school starts, though. FotoMagico is the perfect software for class projects. As Dan Cohen from Gear Diary sums it up in a recent review, “While the software is simple, it is also powerful enough for people who want and need more complexity.

BoinxTV just 199.99 USD (a savings of 300 USD!)
The popular “broadcast truck without the truck” brings studio broadcast-quality production to consumers of all skill levels, allowing kids and school administrators to learn in a completely unique way. Get inspired by how Gustavo Reis uses BoinxTV to compliment learning at the school he opened, Mathematica Et Cetera, producing the weekly live “Math Happy Hour” at the old dentist’s office he transformed into a broadcast studio.

Mouseposé – FREE with any purchase!
Give presentations the spotlight they deserve! Mouseposé is the perfect tool to accompany your work. This nifty tool from Boinx dims the computer screen and puts a spotlight on the area around the mouse pointer, easily guiding the audience’s attention to an area of interest. Attention spans are short those first few weeks of the school year - Mouseposé helps teachers and students both to get right to the point!

Back-to-school promotions for Boinx Software products end on September 9, 2014
