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.

First Baptist Church of Naples Upgrades Live Broadcast and Streaming with Panasonic AK-HC5000 Studio and AW-HE130 Pan/Tilt-Zoom Cameras

NEWARK, NJ (October 7, 2019)—First Baptist Church of Naples (Naples, FL) has completed a major renovation of its IMAG and streaming operations with the addition of three Panasonic AK-HC5000 studio camera systems and nine AW-HE130 pan/tilt/zoom cameras. These HD cameras support the live broadcast of three weekend worship services reaching 2500+ physical attendees and a growing internet audience.
Pastor of Media and Technology John Patterson, who manages worship center services for First Baptist’s 80-acre campus, explained that the AK-HC5000’s Chromatic Aberration Compensation (CAC) function makes it the ideal choice for camera placement 110-feet away from the worship stage. (CAC, a Panasonic proprietary and Emmy Award-winning feature, is capable of correcting even slight chromatic aberration at a lens’ periphery.)
“We have a very specific logistics requirement to place all three HC5000s on pedestals in the back of a 14,000 sq.ft. space,” Patterson explained. “Because of CAC, we are able to outfit the cameras with Cabrio 22x lenses (ZA22X7.6BERD-S6) with 2x extenders that run fully extended, with no lensing limitations or loss of focus.”
“The HC5000 addresses our criteria for simple, effective, reliable acquisition gear,” he added. “Specifically, we wanted separate tally/return, and a single SMPTE drop, all provided by the HC5000. We upgraded the cameras’ viewfinders (to the 9-inch AK-HVF100 FHD LCD model), and the VF focus assist has been a great help to our camera techs.”
