Mobile Virtual Presentation Studio

Table of Contents

Taking your studio on the road

Now that offline events are back, you will want to use the time between gigs to create content, participate in a video conference or do a live stream for your fans, without losing the high quality that you have worked so hard to achieve over the past years. This means taking your studio on the road. With this setup, you can create high-quality video and deliver a dazzling virtual presentation on the go, while keeping your equipment light. It solves many of the problems of working from a hotel or meeting room and fits into a small backpack.

Mobile Virtual Presentation Studio

The design is based around a single, lightweight tripod that can carry both the lights and the camera.

The MacBook (Pro or Air M2) with mimoLive sits on a very light stand that elevates it so that the camera is at the right height for a Zoom call or a MS Teams Meeting. You can extend the tripod to get to a standing position if you like.

Use the blackout curtains in your hotel room to help make the scene look less like a hotel room.

You use your iPad to run your PowerPoint or Keynote presentation or as a notepad. This iPad is connected to the Mac via a USB-C cable. A second iPad is used to control mimoLive via the Remote Control Surface. That iPad can be used wirelessly.

The iPhone serves as a great camera and, using the new Continuity Camera feature of MacOS Ventura, doesn’t require a port to connect to the MacBook.

The individual power supplies are replaced with a single power supply with 4 USB C and 2 USB A ports. This saves you from bringing an extension cord.

In-ear headphones ensure top sound quality as they prevent the noise and echo cancellation of your meeting platform to have to go into effect.

You can use the built-in microphone, but to get a little better sound, the Mobile Virtual Presentation Studio includes an external microphone. Microphone and headphones are connected to the MacBook through a TRRS Audio Adapter.

There are two external Full HD Monitors which allows you to use the center screen for your meeting platform so you can see your audience, one screen for the mimoLive document and one screen for your notes or a browser or any other information you might want to display.
