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.

Make sure that your Mevo is turned on and connected to the same local network as your Livestream Studio machine. If it is not connected to the same network (i.e. to the same access point), Studio cannot recognize Mevo.

 Launch the Mevo app and navigate to the main Settings menu. Scroll down to find the Studio Mode option.

Choose your desired resolution and bitrate for your camera's output into Studio, then toggle on the Mevo Remote Camera switch.

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

Selecting 1080p / 15.0Mbps will disable all Camera Assistant features (Face Detection, Live Follow, Auto Pilot, Static Shots).

Your Mevo will appear at a Remote Camera option in Studio. Select it to see your camera's output in Studio.

The below message may prompt you to change some settings in Studio to improve the experience with Mevo remote camera. Clicking Apply Recommendations will set all direct inputs to be delayed by one second, syncing them with Mevo and any other remote camera sources.

In the Mevo app, you will notice the bottom left corner now shows a dark gray button indicating it is linked to Studio but is not currently in Preview or Program. If you tap this button, the option to push it to Preview (PRV) or Program (PGM) will appear.

Use your finger to slide the gray button to either PRV or PGM to put your Mevo into either Preview or Program, respectively

Once Mevo is in Preview or Program, tap the button again and slide it to switch.

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. 

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.

Once your Mevo is connected, check here for best practices and recommendations for using Mevo as a remote camera source.

Troubleshooting

If you are not seeing any options on the list within the Remote Cam tabs, please check the following: 

  • - Make sure the remote system is on the same network, connected to the same Router or Access Point as your Studio system.
    • - If the system is on the same network but using a different access point, the Remote Camera will not properly connect. 
  • - Check that the following ports are open if you use a firewall: 
    • - UDP: 5353, 60936 - 61036
      - TCP: 60936 - 61036
  • - Check that Bonjour Service is started.
