You've probably noticed that we send PHOTOKINA TV and the presentations of our FotoTV. movie stars live to you this year. This requires a suitable software that among other important features should be stable especially!

For years FotoTV. is a very satisfied user of Boinx's Mac solution which formerly was called BoinxTV and has been renamed in mimoLive (Multi-In, Multi-Out Live Video Engine) now.

Leonard Christian is a guest at the PHOTOKINA TV stage and shows the streaming software and it's innovations. It can control up to nine different image sources. In addition, mimoLive works with Youtube and other social media platforms that allow livestream. The relatively low price makes it possible for smaller projects to use this solution.

Kazuto Yamaki, CEO of Sigma Cooperatioon, was guest at photokinaTV already in 2012. He came with an impressive challenge for the near future: He wanted to revolutionize the company, making Sigma the leading supplier of lenses in the high-end range.

Now, four years later, we see in the interview: Sigma has really given full throttle! Yamaki shows several brand new lenses and a camera whose features are forward-looking, in fact, and certainly juggle opposites: For example, the opposites of sharpness and bokeh, size and ease as well as of quality and the demands of a low price were decoupled by the Sigma engineers.

Yamaki and his team have put a lot of strength and sweat into this technical change process. Such a big project will only work with motivated employees. Yamaki also gives an insight into the collaboration of engineers.
