While these apps have been quite popular among casual mobile users, professionals have been craving for more quality and flexibility in terms of capturing videos. Livestream is finally addressing this with its Movi camera. To be unveiled at CES 2016, Movi claims to take and stream better quality videos, and also offers the feel of a multi-camera setup.
