Key Features
  • Stream and/or Record up to 1080p30
  • Three-Mic Array + External Audio Support
  • Controlled via Live Production Mevo App
  • 6-Hour Battery; NDI-Enabled Video Output
The Mevo Start is an all-in-one camera designed to provide a very easy workflow for live streaming to popular RTMP platforms, including YouTube Live and Facebook Live. It streams up to 1080p30 resolution video and also allows you to simultaneously record what you're streaming to a microSD card, so you'll have a copy of your live stream. The camera is controlled via a companion iOS/Android Mevo app, which offers intuitive, simple-to-use tools for live production. For example, by panning and zooming through the shot that you're capturing during a live stream, the app can create nine different angles of that shot and present them to you in a grid layout. Then you can simply tap the grid square that you want to stream. While the app is capable of creating the different angles automatically, you can also choose to do so manually. Other functions of the app include Autopilot mode, which uses face detection and scene analysis to choose interesting shots and edit the stream for you.

Other functions of the app include Autopilot mode, which uses face detection and scene analysis to choose interesting shots and edit the stream for you.

The Mevo Start is highly compact and portable, and it runs on a built-in battery for up to six hours, allowing you to stream extended sessions. Or, an optional dedicated Mevo Start Ethernet Adapter can be incorporated for continuous power. The camera has a native 5/8"-27 mic stand thread with a reducer bushing in it. The bushing, which can be removed with a coin or screwdriver, provides a 1/4"-20 thread on one side and 3/8"-16 thread on the other. Between these three mount types, you'll be able to attach the camera to desktop and standard tripods, light stands, and mic stands. A dedicated Mevo Stand is also available sold separately that's slim and easy to set up.

For audio capture, the Mevo Start has three built-in digital MEMS mics with Fraunhofer upHear Spatial Microphone Processing that automatically optimizes and syncs sounds for better audio. Additionally, the camera offers a 3.5mm audio jack on the rear for connecting external microphones for more professional audio. The audio port works with line level and mic level audio inputs. Alternatively, an optional USB audio interface can be connected to the USB Type-C charging port of the camera for external audio capture. Also, whether internal or external, your captured audio can be mixed in the Mevo app. The app lets you control gain, choose between stereo or mono, and more.

The Mevo Start also features NDI HX support so it can be integrated into a more professional live production workflow. Via Wi-Fi or over an optional Ethernet adapter, it can be connected to an NDI network to work with popular mixers including OBS, NewTek TriCaster, Wirecast, vMix, and many others. Mevo Start also supports direct connection to Livestream Studio.

Mevo Start Reviews

Really frustrated user

This is the first time I've bought anything from BHP that I've considered returning. It was highly recommended by a friend for live streaming church services and events. I haven't been able to make it work yet. Turning it on is even a challenge, as it keeps turning off after a few seconds, and takes multiple attempts to get it to stay on. First, the site directed me to the wrong IOS app, which was a different Mevo app. I finally found the right one and after several attempts to log onto my network and get connected via Bluetooth, it told me I needed a firmware update. But the firmware update keeps failing because of an unsupported URL, whatever that means. I can't even start using the camera until I update the firmware, and I can't update the firmware, so Catch-22.

Pixelated and terrible zoom

The camera's picture is pretty good and easy to operate using their app. We used it a picnic recently. The battery life is good. This is the second one we purchased.

Amazing product

These cameras are supposed to work as a webcam

These camera will not display video image in windows 10 using zoom. I've had a picture twice in 2 weeks. Teachers just need to connect without struggling with technology. I enabled webcam mode, windows 10 detects the camera and zoom see's the camera and audio picks up but no video image. so I don't recommend the Mevos Start as a webcam. George

These cameras are just what your livestream production ordered. Straight to the point once you unpackaged them and download the Multicam app. Don't get discouraged as the app doesn't offer landscape view yet (mevo needs to get on this ASAP). Other than that great equipment for its intended purpose.

Great Camera for all needs !!!

The MEVO Camera is great for all types of video. It's small compact body is perfect for small tripod configurations. The app feature for your phone/tablet is super convenient to do editing on the spot. The live stream feature is perfect for 1, 2, or the 3 camera configuration setup.

Thank you.
