mimoLive User Manual

The mimoLive User Manual Developer Hub

Welcome to the mimoLive User Manual developer hub. You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with mimoLive User Manual as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck. Let's jump right in!

Get Started    

NDI® Playout

Broadcast mimoLive program over the network

The NDI® Output Destination sends video data to any NDI® enabled device on your local network. NDI® also transports the alpha channel which gives you the opportunity to use mimoLive as a graphics generator in NDI® enabled environments.

Adding a NDI® Output Destination

Add a new NDI® Output Destination to your Output Destination list by clicking the + button on top of the list in the right most column of your mimoLive document. A popover window will appear with all the Output Destination options available. After double clicking the NDI® Output Destination icon a new instance will appear in the Output Destination list.

Discoverability and Connection

Creating an NDI® Output Destination suffices to let NDI® receivers on the network discover the mimoLive sender as "mimoLive - <your document title>" and connect to it. However, mimoLive program output will only be transmitted after the Output Destination has been activated.

Setting up the NDI® Output Destination

The Start with show and Stop with show options define if the NDI® Output Destination should start and stop by the Start/Stop Show Button.

You can specify an Audio Mix that should go with the NDI® video signal. Please refer to Audio Mix Panel to learn more about working with audio mixes.

Select a Failsafe Source that takes over your NDI® output in case the sender disappears from the network unexpectedly. Failsafe Source can also be changed while the NDI® Output Destination is live. This setting is optional.

Receiving Failsafe Sources

Failsafe sources may or may not be recognized by NDI® receivers depending on their respective implementation. Make sure your receiver handles failsafe sources as expected if you depend on this feature. You can easily test the receiver's behavior by removing an active NDI® Output Destination with failsafe source from the document. The receiver should switch to the failsafe in a matter of seconds.

Note: mimoLive can set failsafe sources but does not receive them at this time.

Monitoring Live Performance

When activating the NDI® Output Destination the mimoLive program output can be received by NDI® enabled devices or applications on the network. Also, the settings panel is replaced by a status panel that allows monitoring the connection and encoder performance.

Value
Meaning

Connections

How many NDI® connections are receiving the mimoLive program out?

On Program

Is the mimoLive video signal displayed in the program out of any connected NDI® receiver?

On Preview

Is the mimoLive video signal displayed in the preview of any connected NDI® receiver?

Encoder Status

How is the NDI® video encoder doing?

Encoder Rate

What FPS is the NDI® encoder running at?

Dropped Frames

Did mimoLive drop frames because the NDI® video encoder did not perform as required by the document's frame rate?
