Enable Livestream Studio Remote Camera Mode

You can bring your Mevo into your Livestream Studio production as a Remote Camera. In this way, you can use more than one Mevo camera in your production at one time, if you want.

Please note that you cannot record locally to the microSD card when using Mevo as a remote camera source in Livestream Studio. However, Livestream Studio does include a recording option for just the camera source if you would like to record a backup.

First, make sure that your Mevo is on the same local network as your Livestream Studio machine either via Wi-Fi or Ethernet.

Open your Mevo app main menu, and choose 'Advanced Settings.'

Scroll midway down the Advanced Settings menu. You see an option for Livestream Studio Remote Camera Mode.

First, choose whether you want your camera resolution to be 720p / 7.5Mbps, 720p / 5Mbps, or 1080p / 15Mbps. Best practice is for it to match the Project Format in Livestream Studio.

You cannot change your resolution while remote camera mode is enabled.

Toggle the switch on. You will see a warning message that indicates you need Livestream Studio in order to use this feature. Turning on this feature disables the ability to stream and record directly with Mevo.

Tap 'OK' to continue and then close out the menu. Your Mevo is now in Livestream Studio remote camera mode.

Back in your live editing mode, you will now see a window at the top left with two new controls. These controls are Preview and Output. 

As long as your Mevo is on the same network as your Livestream Studio machine, you can then choose your Mevo as a source in the Remote Cam tab in Livestream Studio. 

Note: If you have re-named your Mevo in the app, it will still show up in Studio with its original identification number. 

Tap on Preview to control your Livestream Studio and place your Mevo Remote Cam source in Preview. 

Tap on Output to control your Livestream Studio and take your Mevo Remote Cam source as the Studio Output. This is what your Studio viewers will see.

While Mevo is being used a Remote Camera in Studio, you may still live edit your Mevo shot in your Mevo app. Your Mevo will output this live editing to Studio, just as it would to a local recording or Mevo stream to Livestream or Facebook Live. 

Note: You cannot start a separate Mevo stream to Livestream or Facebook Live while Studio Remote Camera Mode is enabled. You also cannot record to a microSD card inside the camera while in Studio Remote Camera Mode.
