The latest major release of mimoLive brings lots of new features.

Changes

Version 6.0 April, 2022

Important

  • New scope of delivery for mimoLive 6 Studio & mimoLive 6 Broadcast:
    Now includes:
    – Sports Graphics package
    – ATEM Controller layer and
    – Lower Third Pack 1
  • Documents created with mimoLive 5 can be used with mimoLive 6 and vice versa. The document format hasn’t changed.
  • mimoLive 6 is a universal binary and runs on Macs with Intel processors and Apple Silicon.
  • mimoLive 6 is available for all subscribers

    older license keys starting with “A” will be automatically replaced with new license keys starting with “E” that are electronically signed to confirm their authenticity. If you experience any issues with this, please contact sales@boinx.com.

New Features

  • New: “Stingers and Outros” and “Lower Third Playground” templates for you to explore and use.
  • New: FFmpeg source which gives mimoLive much higher flexibility for all kinds of streaming video inputs including SRT and RTMP for use with action cams and drones. (FFmpeg needs to be installed separately.)
  • New: Background Removal filter uses machine learning to separate people from the background without the need for a green screen. Background can be removed or blurred.
  • New: Lower Third Pro layer uses a transparent video file as the background. Animates three phases from a single video file: Intro, loop and outro.
  • New: Visual Radio layer, a video switcher triggered by individual audio sources.
  • New: Player List Presenter layer added to the Sports Graphics package. This layer introduces the team members in groups with pictures.
  • New: The QR-Code source and the “News” template from our Freebies webpage are now included with mimoLive.
  • New: Added the option to update more video source-specific parameters via HTTP API.
  • New: Layers can now be assigned a color in the layer stack to make them more recognizable.
  • New: Blending Mode and Opacity were added to the Placer layer enabling exciting new effects.
  • New: Added Handball as a sport to the Sports Graphics package.
  • New: Single Comment layer now has the option to truncate the comment to a certain length.
  • New: The Stop Watch layer now can be automatically started when the layer goes live.
  • New: Showtime or a wall clock can be added to the Remote Control Surfaces.

Enhancements

  • Enhancement: Color Pickers have been redesigned to provide a better user experience.
  • Enhancement: Font color can now be directly chosen from the font selector.
