From Facebook Live streaming, the manufacturer of the Mevo camera has upgraded it to broadcast from four platforms. Besides including support for YouTube Live and Android, the camera could now broadcast to Facebook Live, Periscope, YouTube, and Livestream, the creator’s website. Its capability also improved from just 720p to 1080p.

To enjoy those upgrades, owners of Mevo cameras must upgrade their software and get the latest version of the camera’s iOS app or its new Android app. The camera could be used to record 4K videos, Engadget reports. However, the Android app and updated iOS app are still in beta version.

Owners of Mevo cameras would have to wait until summer before the upgrades in Android app and updated iOS app would reach their devices. Consumers unwilling to wait could get the upgrades for $399 at the Mevo support center.

The bundle for pros is priced at $299, CNET reports. The Mevo camera bundle includes the camera, carrying case, and the Mevo Boost, an accessory. It adds eight hours of battery life to Mevo’s one hour. The bundle also has a USB cable and an Ethernet port for wired networking to make professional quality streams.

Gottabemobile notes that people could just use a computer webcam or an iPhone to stream live to Facebook, YouTube, or Livestream. But by using Livestream’s Mevo camera and app, the live stream looks professional because of the smooth transitions and multi-shot setup. It is also capable of following a person’s face, allowing the cameraman to move around a stage or in a room without the need to move the camera.

Besides the Mevo camera, the other recommended cameras on the website’s list are the Olloclip iPhone 7 camera lenses, Aukey Ora iPhone 7 lens kit, Insta360 Nano 360-degree camera, and the SanDisk iXpand flash drive.
