Convenient, affordable and portable live-streaming system
A Horsburgh, 14.09.2020
The Mevo Start is a dedicated camera for live-streaming, but which can also be used for recording. It is small, packed with useful features and easy to use and produces good quality images.
I bought the Mevo Start to live-stream services from my church. In that building, there is no wifi and we do not have the cabling required for a wired in system, so I wanted a way of live-streaming which could connect to Facebook by 4G, could stand alone without the need to install cables, was battery operated, easy to use and could basically look after itself while I got on with leading the service. The Mevo Start offers all of that.
The Mevo Start is small and unobtrusive even when placed in front of the congregation. It comes ready to connect to a variety of standard microphone stands or camera tripods. It has to stand reasonably close to the subject but 2-3m away seems to work well, giving the options of wider and closer shots. I like the way different shots can be set up in advance and then the Mevo Start can cycle through them, giving a bit of visual variety for the viewer, without the need to be operated manually. Manual zooms and pans are easy to do though. The app which goes along with the Mevo Start, downloadable from all the usual app stores, seems stable and it is certainly intuitive. It offers a huge amount of control over the settings and operation of the camera. I have not tested the internal microphones yet, having rather used the 3.5mm input socket to connect a radio mic, but this produces a good rich natural sound, with even some of the natural resonance of the building coming through.
The app offers a variety of streaming qualities so that you can match the upload speed available on your mobile network. It is very convenient that the same smartphone can control the Mevo Start and connect to social media. Connecting to my Facebook account was very simple. I have not tried to connect to YouTube or other social media. It is good to know that the Mevo Start simultaneously creates a backup recording (micro SD cards have to be bought separately) in case the live-stream goes down.
One thing I do not like is the fact that the Mevo Start offers the possibility of adding overlays or inserting images into livestreams direct from the camera/app, but only if you subscribe to Vimeo. It is a shame that this facility cannot be used unless you are prepared to pay about £175 a year to do so. Ideally, a cloth bag or case for the camera would be nice. There is no lens cap so care needs to be taken to protect the lens.
The Mevo website provides comprehensive instructions which are really helpful in getting the best out of the Mevo Start.
If you are looking for a simple live-streaming solution, I would recommend the Mevo Start. If you want to grow your capabilities in the future, it will still find a place in a more complex system, as it can connect with a video mixer through an HDMI cable.

Braucht einfach noch Zeit für Entwickung
ba_composition, 29.09.2020
Leider ist die Mevo Start ein Bespiel dafür, wie zu voreilige Produktreleases mit unausgereifter Firmware + Apps ein eigentlich tolles Produkt schädigen können.

Im Detail:
Wenn man die Kamera einfach so out-of-box als einzelne Streamingkamera nutzen will, funktioniert sie ganz gut. Aber sowas kann eben auch ein iPhone mit ner NDI HX Cam Software drauf.
Aber zunächst mal ein paar positive Aspekte:
Die Kamera selbst wirkt gut verarbeitet (bis auf die USB-Buchse) und die Montage auf Stativen funktioniert einwandfrei.
Die Funktion mit dem eingebauten Tally via NDI klappt prima.
Das Bild ist o.k. für den Preis. Bei der Funktion die Kamera über Ethernet+POE / USB-C ein- und ausschalten zu können haben die Entwickler wirklich mal an Profis gedacht, funktioniert einwandfrei und die Verbindung zum NDI-Server steht nach dem Einschalten wieder ohne Benutzereingriff.

Aber dann wären da noch diese Punkte:

Der kameraeigene Acesspoint ist nicht umbenennbar, und vor allem auch nicht abschaltbar. Auch die Kamera selbst ist nur „kosmetisch“ umbenennbar, im Netz meldet sie sich immer mit ihrem vom Hersteller vorgegebenen Hostnamen.

Die Vergabe einer eigenen IP funktioniert nur in einem von drei Versuchen - bei einem dieser Versuche hat sich die Kamera derart verstellt, dass nur noch ein Hardreset incl. Rollback auf die alte Firmware zum Ziel führte.

Mit einer reinen IPv6-Topologie kommt die Kamera nicht klar.

Die Kamera kommuniziert laut tcpdump aus völlig unverständlichen Gründen permanent mit einem Server bei Mevo und es ist nicht möglich, der Kamera KEINEN Router und KEINEN DNS-Server zu geben, sie funktioniert dann einfach nicht korrekt und gibt z.B. keinen NDI-Stream aus. Sowas geht gar nicht Mevo. Ich bin echt kein Aluhutträger, aber eine Kamera die permanent via Netz mit dem Hersteller kommuniziert und auch nicht zulässt, dass ich dies gerne in den Einstellungen unterbinden würde, macht sehr nachdenklich.

Der USB-C Anschluss der Kamera wackelt sogar mit dem mitgelieferten Kabel, sowas möchte ich live nicht einsetzen. Und der als Zubehör lieferbare Ethernet-Adapter (170 EUR !!) ist nur mit mehreren Lagen Gaffer gegen Herausrutschen der USB-Stecker zu sichern. Und: Für den Preis erwarte ich wenigstens eine Power und/oder LAN-Status LED an einem Ethernet Adapter.

Der Ethernet Adapter wird bei Betrieb an einem amtlichen HP-POE+-Hub extrem heiss, und das schon in meinem klimatisierten Studio.

Die Kamera ist derzeit nur über eine App via Handy konfigurierbar. Es läuft zwar ein NGINX auf Port 80, der ist aber nicht konfiguriert.

Es gibt keine detaillierte Anleitung zu dem Produkt. Nur eine FAQ, und selbst da stehen Details wie Hardreset via Knopf oder die genaue Bedeutung der Status-LED nur unzureichend beschrieben


FAZIT:

Nach einer gründlichen Überarbeitung der Firmware und hoffentlich der USB-Buchse kauf ich mir gerne nochmal 3 von denen.
Bis dahin gehen die jetzt leider an Thomann zurück.

Muy transportable.
David DB, 25.06.2020
La verdad es que aún tengo que usarla más para poder hacer una valoración más objetiva. En unas primeras pruebas parece que va bien y no ha presentado fallos. Que tenga que ser todo wireless me produce inseguridad aunque hasta que no la pruebe más no puedo decir nada ni positivo ni negativo. Echo de menos que no tenga salida HDMI para poder usarla de web cam y combinarla con otras cámaras.

Quelques défaut, mais vraiment pratique et de très bons points
RadioBLV, 04.12.2020
On branche et ça fonctionne... En gros :D
Sur une des caméras j'ai du faire un reset pour la trouver sur le réseau (via boitier additionnel rj45)
Au premier démarrage, utilisez bien l'application mobile pour la mise à jour firmware et l'activation NDI.
Utilisé derrière un switch Cisco en POE pour l'alimenter via l'adaptateur RJ45 à acheter séparément sur le site de Thomann. La caméra Mevo Start est donc rechargée en même temps.

Utilisation en radio, pour faire de la radio "augmentée". 2 caméras installées pour l'instant dans le studio. Logicien OBS Studio avec module NDI.
On pense aussi pouvoir l'utiliser en studio mobile, le format très compact est donc très pratique.
Je ne peux pas juger de la qualité du son, puisqu'on utilise le son de la table de mix.
Je n'ai pas testé non plus la partie wifi. Une caméra sans batterie, son et wifi m'aurait suffit, donc pour mon usage des fonctionnalités sont sans utilité, par contre j'aurais préféré avoir directement le rj45 POE plutot que de devoir passer par un boitier additionnel et couteux.

La possibilité de zoomer est un vrai plus, par contre il faut absolument passer par l'appli mobile.
Quand on a plusieurs caméras, il faut se déconnecter d'une pour se mettre sur l'autre pour modifier le réglage... Bref, une interface web, regroupant toutes les caméras serait le bienvenue! Revo si vous me lisez...
Sinon j'aime pas le "softtouch". Pour du matos mobile, c'est pas un revêtement adéquat. Je pense que l'aspect en souffrira rapidement.
Je pense en reprendre dans un futur proche.

À vérifier, mais il semble aussi qu'on ne puisse pas utiliser la caméra avec OBS et en meme temps avec le logiciel NDI Tool pour l'utiliser comme webcam sur un soft de confcall type skype/teams/meet etc
