The good stuff: Very easy setup and configuration, including using the Android app on an inexpensive MotoE phone. I was very pleased that it could be used without spending $1K on an iPhone or Galaxy. Very Good picture quality. The pan and zoom and cut functions are very cool and help to add visual interest to a single viewpoint. It still is, of course, a single, wide-angle, point of view, and it must be placed fairly close to the subject in most applications like a performance by a band or a panel discussion.
The limitations: You can livestream OR record in 4K..... NOT both simultaneously. Streaming is, as with any streaming, completely dependant upon having a solid connection. I used the Boost to establish a connection via ethernet cable directly to my cable modem and easily got a connection. I was very disappointed, however, to find that YouTube flagged the quality of the stream from the Mevo as very weak, due entirely to my connection…..NOT the cameras fault.
This made me think about the wisdom of embedding the streaming solution in an otherwise very cool remote control 4K video camera. Most of what I do is remote and in an environment with poor cellular connectivity at best. Often, I don’t have the lead time to negotiate a hardline Ethernet connection at each site so I’m limited to run-of-the-mill Wi-fi. In addition, The Boosts 10-hour battery doesn’t buy me much if I’m relying on my cell phone for network connectivity.
Bottom Line: This is a very cool, remote control 4K video camera with a built in streaming capability. If you are confident that your network environment will provide sufficient bandwidth to allow it to be practical in delivering LIVE video via the Internet, go for it!
In my case (limited, unpredictable network environment), I packed it up and started a return process with Amazon. If I invest in a streaming device going forward, it will likely be one that allows me to stream from any video input that I choose rather than one that is bundled with a specific camera.
Every video has some static noise during moments of silence, even when built-in mic sensitivity is low. I confirmed with Mevo that this is part of the design and is not unique to my unit.
I have attached a video to demonstrate this. Microphone sensitivity varies from 0 to 30db
In the video 0-15 seconds : 10db
16-23 seconds: 12db
24-30 seconds: 5db
31-35 seconds: 25db (here it picks up the buzz of fluorescent lights as well)
Rest of the video, back at 10db
Customer service, after acknowledging device's weakness, said that they recommend external audio source, and that it is unlikely to get a fix for it.
I have maintained my previous 2-star rating because it does one thing well, simple video broadcasting. It does not provide quality audio. I'm okay with the video quality since for my use, it will be seen mostly on smartphones. However this is where audio still matters, and I am in the process of testing ADDITIONAL purchased equipment to make audio better.
No doubt this was meant to be a game changer, and it was close. Here are two ways it fails. If you have a work-around, let me know.
1) charging is proprietary. My understanding is that this was not the case with the original mevo. You cannot charge the mevo plus with a generic external battery bank to lengthen recording time. I asked customer support and they confirmed this. They suggested I try plugging in the mevo plus directly into the wall with the charger that came in the box.
Yes, that really happened. :-|
My mevo plus begins charging from an external battery after it is completely drained. That means it stops streaming, and then it would need to be plugged in. What boggles my mind is we got it to work once, and reproducing the same circumstances did not work. So there is some sort of combination that will fool the software. Let me know if you figure it out.
2) Microphone - The microphone level has to be set. It is either on, or off, and you set decibel level. This does mean that it needs to be manually adjusted when switching from a full band to a speaker. The only way around this with strictly the base device is to feed an audio signal from the mixer to the device on which you are using the app.
3) Device gets very hot, I can't imagine this being a good thing for a memory card or the longevity of the device.
In the end, you will feel pressured to make it a "full-fledged" device by spending an additional $250 for the Mevo Boost Accessory. Without it, it's pointless for any event more than 40 minutes.
While the connectivity between mevo plus and remote device leaves something to be desired, the connectivity between the mevo plus and router is pretty stable.
When it works it is pretty cool.
They don’t tell you that to get the full features you also have to sign up for a$179 per year subscription. And if you want to live stream to something besides Facebook- like to your website- that is an additional $899 per year.
It is also very poorly supported- comes with no instructions!
I bought the most expensive one and have no idea what extra features I got for the money.
This is a great idea whose time will come, but for now if you want to stream a not-so-great image with some cut and zoom effects and the price tag is worth it for that function, this review doesn't apply. If you want to record anything of quality, this is not ready for prime-time yet. I hope they get there...it's a cool idea.

Technical support, based on the East Coast of the US are fantastic and answer quickly by email and on the phone and were able to sort all my problems very quickly.
I would highly recommend to anyone thinking of purchasing - the features are plentiful, and the options to record via in-built, iPad/phone or lavelier mic (via iRig) are amazing. I've had a few geeky mates comment on how jealous they are - which makes me super happy!
After 4 months of live streaming with system resets, echoing, apps failures and constant trying to "make this thing work" I found their Facebook site and started talking to people about getting better audio and the TSSR adapters do not work very well. There was echoing happening and at times it would capture the external audio or not. I finally GAVE UP and Amazon was GREAT on getting me a refund after I went to the folks at MEVO for a refund they told be to go fly a kite (well not in those words). Anyhow be very careful if you decide to purchase this product. Read read read and join their facebook group and ask question of the users on the type of phone you have and the success. rates
At best with an Android product it's not very good. I have yet to test this on an Apple product. But I have a Samsung s8 plus and the app CONSTANTLY crashes. We have issues when plugging in an external connection. We have all the correct and required adapters.
When the app launches the phone microphone continues to us the phones mic rather than the external plugged in adapter. Very unreliable. and quite frustrating.
It's a bit of a crap shoot when you start the app as to weather or not the app will initiate the external mic that is coming from a mixing board.
When the app crashes you loose all of your shot angles and you have to start over again. VERY frustrating when you in the middle of a live stream.
BEWARE if you are an android user.
- they look cool
- lightweight and can mount on basic microphone stands
- the auto track / auto crop feature is impressive
- Have 1 Mevo? Cool, it might work okay on your cellphone. Want to drop a graphic or lower third in? GET READY to pay $1000 per year to have that feature.
- Have 2 Mevos? You need to then purchase the "Livestream Studio Mega Ultra” package at over $1000 per year!
- The Livestream Studio software is terrible. It's not even 1/4 as good as Mimo Live or Wirecast
- the auto track / auto crop feature gives you an extremely dirty image
- Wifi: What a terrible idea not to have a microHDMI backup support. We used 2 of these cameras on a strong 5G network. They had medium issues at 720p 7.5 mbps with their connection, but the image was still dirty and dropped constantly. At 1080p 15mbps = good luck, not going to happen. I even created a private network on an AC1900 network from 5 feet away and these cameras still dropped.
- Audo: okay... To be fair I never planned on using the on-board audio. But maybe the odd time you want to do a podcast from about 2 to 3 feet away and use the on-board microphone... I would except it to be echo-y and just meh. Well it's actually not echo-y and meh. It is completely non-functional. There is a persistent and strong hum. This was a clean room with no vents or any kind of background noise... If you do some research you will find that just about every user of this product has complained about it. I even received a support ticket back notifying me of this "known issue”
My logitech pro webcam does better audio and video than these Mevos. They had the best intentions with their design, but wow did they ever fail in their execution. The worst thing is the VIMEO brand is now forever tarnished after being a video pro's best friend for a decade. They have basically went the Adobe route but here is they crazy thing... Vimeo Livestream Studio values their C-class software as being a higher value than the ENTIRE Adobe Creative Cloud subscription. I'm not the biggest fan of Adobe cloud, but you do get a lot of software.
