Livestream's latest camera, the Mevo Plus is a pocket-sized live event camera that shoots 4K, has built-in mics and external audio capabilities, and "live editing" which allows you to cut between multiple cameras through an iPhone app. However, the biggest draw of the Mevo Plus is its streaming capabilities, which allows you to stream in Full HD 1080p to Livestream, Facebook, YouTube, Periscope, and Twitter over Wi-Fi or LTE.
