On the heels of their recent merger, Vimeo and Livestream said they have completed an initial batch of product integrations and have introduced the Mevo Plus, a new, more powerful  version of Livestream’s compact live event camera.

Following recent product integrations, users of Mevo Plus, Mevo and Studio software can stream to their Vimeo Live accounts, the companies said.

Vimeo and Livestream, which closed their merger on October 18, said the video product combos are targeted to businesses, organizations and professional creators.

Mevo Plus features a 150-degree all glass lens and 4K Sony sensor that enables the associated app to control up to nine virtual HD cameras simultaneously, and includes a beefed up 802.11ac WiFi chip with 100 feet of range, more than five times that of the first-gen Mevo, and 2x2 MIMO antennas for faster data transmission speeds. In addition to streaming to Vimeo Live and Livestream, the new camera can also deliver video to platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Periscope.
