CES: Movi is a live event camera that’s controlled by an iOS app

At this week’s International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Livestream, which specializes in live event streaming for business, says it’s entering the consumer electronics market with the unveiling of Movi, a pocket-sized live event camera that lets you edit while you film

The live-editing camera “helps busy consumers, organizations, and event producers seamlessly share the engaging stories of their live events by putting the power and capabilities of a multi-camera production studio in their hands,” says Lifestream CEO Jesse Hertzberg. 

The Movi camcorder fits in the palm of your hand and packs a 150-degree all-glass lens and 4k sensor. Using an iOS app that’s downloadable at the Apple App Store, you can control up to nine virtual HD cameras. Live editing includes the ability to pan, zoom, and cut between multiple live shots, providing the same storytelling capabilities used in professional live TV productions. 

Built-in people detection and movement tracking features even allow Movi to make camera movement and editing decisions automatically, according to Hertzberg. Customers can easily share their fully edited videos immediately to their favorite social networks or simultaneously stream their event live with an optional subscription starting at less than $9 per month.

Movi is available for pre-order with pricing ranging from $199 to $399. It’s due to ship in April.
