In Audio, Audio Industry News, Audio Product News, home_page, Industry Newsby admin

If you are short-staffed and relying on volunteers, it can be tough to produce high quality, weekly content to keep your congregation updated and engaged. Not every house of worship has the budget for a full-time video producer. Now, for a fraction of the cost, you have the option of automating your video production with the One Button Studio.
Each One Button Studio kit comes 90% assembled and includes everything you need to turn a small room into an automated recording studio. We’re talking lights, microphone, camera, monitors & capture hardware. Yet, it’s so simple to use, you don’t need to know anything about video production.
Installation is simple too, because we designed this kit to integrate easily into a small office space or conference room. We include hardware for mounting the lights and microphone to a typical drop-ceiling. And the whole system operates on a single power outlet, so there is no need to call in an electrician.
Imagine walking into a room with a PowerPoint and a thumb drive, then walking out fifteen minutes later with a completely finished video. This is the power of the One Button Studio! (+Plus version required for presentation integration.)

StreamGear Fuses Smartphone and Dedicated Cameras into New Live Video Production Paradigm with VidiMo

New hardware-and-app solution turns a phone and external video source into a complete production platform, making it easier than ever before to create high-quality live content
Video content creators ranging from professionals to social media enthusiasts can soon have a better way to share their vision with their audience through high-quality live productions. Streaming solutions startup StreamGear Inc. will come out of stealth mode at tomorrow’s StreamGeeks Summit conference in New York City by launching VidiMo, a new hardware-and-app combination that turns a smartphone and external video source into a full-fledged, virtual video production and transmission facility.
Providing an easier way to create and share engaging live video content, the VidiMo system enables a single person with a smartphone and a video camera to produce multi-source, television-style shows that can be streamed live, recorded or both. While smartphone camera quality has improved over the years, it’s still no match for the rich creative functionality – such as optical zoom, tactile focus, iris control and depth of field – of a dedicated video or DSLR camera. VidiMo lets users have the best of both worlds, bringing an HDMI video source into their smartphone and combining it with the phone’s camera and other sources.
