Cinamaker Makes Remote Guests and Cameras a Breeze via the Zoom Meeting SDK

Cinamaker’s multi-camera video recording, editing, and live streaming app teams up with Zoom Video Communications, Inc. to expand its remote production capabilities.

Over the last two years, few have become strangers to a work-from-home, virtual meeting lifestyle. Some would describe this as the “Zoom Era of Remote Work” where we operate our businesses, jobs, and personal connections through the lens of a camera across various computers and devices.

Today, Cinamaker is excited to announce its direct integration with Zoom’s Meeting SDK that enables Cinamaker Director Studio customers the ability to include Remote Guests and Remote Cameras from anywhere in the world into their Cinamaker-produced live streams, live meetings, and recorded sessions.

Put simply, through Cinamaker’s integration with Zoom’s leading video communications platform,  Cinamaker creators can select and pull individual Zoom meeting participants into their live Cinamaker productions as featured interview guests, presenters, and remote talent, and thereby enhance the quality of their video production, live streams, virtual meetings, presentations, webinars, events, and more. 

“We’re excited that Cinamaker has chosen to use our Meetings SDK to extend their live video production offering to include remote guests,” said Zoom’s Chief Technology Officer, Brendan Ittelson. “Including remote guests will help event hosts create high-quality live events without geography acting as a barrier.”  

Since 2017, Cinamaker has been dedicated to empowering emerging video creators, live streamers, professionals, entrepreneurs, and the like with tools for multi-camera live video streaming, recording, and editing using their Mac or iPad. Without any prior multi-camera video experience, Cinamaker Director Studio users can tell their stories using up to eight (8) iPhone, and digital camera angles, mix audio, include media assets, visual effects, and more.

Now, thanks to Zoom’s Meeting SDK, Cinamaker users can just as simply include remote guests and remote cameras directly into their live shows and events, live streams, presentations, and recordings, as well as send their live Cinamaker production to Zoom Meetings, Zoom Events, and Zoom Webinars.

“We are extremely excited to support emerging creators and remote workers all over the globe with a solution for creating engaging Zoom sessions, live streams, and video recordings that leave their viewers saying ‘wow’”, says Cinamaker CEO, Benjamin Nowak.

As cameras continue to be a necessity for individuals, companies, and institutions to effectively communicate and interact worldwide, Cinamaker with Zoom makes it easier than ever to create and tell stories using multiple angles and media, from multiple locations, and with multiple participants, wherever they may be.

Cinamaker Release v 2.15 is Here

Cinamaker Director Multicam Studio version 2.15 for iPad and Mac expands the possibilities of easy and affordable Multi-Camera Live-Streaming, Live-Meetings, Recording & Editing

With this release, you will: 

  • Double your camera options:  Now up to eight cameras
  • Include Remote Guests and Remote Cameras from anywhere in the world via Zoom
  • Now you can live stream directly to Linkedin Live
  • Plug microphones and USB audio sources directly into your Mac or iPad
  • Use your Mac’s built-in Apple FaceTime HD camera as one or up to 8 cameras
  • Plus: MacBook performance improvements, Bug fixes, and stability improvements

Let’s dive into the new features:

Eight (8) Camera Support

Cinamaker has expanded to 8 camera slots (previously 4) so that you can add more local and remote cameras to your live streams and recordings.

Why it Matters

Cinamaker now has up to 8 camera slots for including more local and remote cameras, to share your screens, files, applications, or media from those connected screens. This provides you greater capacity for telling your stories with more camera angles, people, and visual elements.

Remote Guests / Remote Cameras

Cinamaker Director Studio (Pro only) gives you the ability to invite anyone or any camera from anywhere in the world to your Cinamaker live stream and recording. 

Cinamaker has partnered with Zoom to make a seamless connection between invited guests, cameras, and audio without ever leaving the Cinamaker app.

Using Zoom’s audio/video transport, “Remote Guest” enables Cinamaker Director Studio creators to include up to eight (8)* remote interview guests or remote cameras/audio into your sessions.

Why it Matters

As remote video production becomes increasingly more common, Cinamaker makes it easier than ever to bring remote video and audio into your multi-camera live broadcasts and recordings.

To learn how to include Remote Guests / Remote Cameras, click here.

How it works

To conduct remote interviews from within the Cinamaker Director Studio app (iPad or Mac), simply login to your Zoom account from the Camera Browser, initiate a Zoom meeting, and invite Guests or Cameras from anywhere in the world to your Cinamaker session.

To learn more, click here.

Once your guest(s) receives and accepts your invite, they will be placed in a Zoom Waiting Room. As the director/host, you will then be able to include your guests in your available camera slot(s).

Then conduct your interviews with your guest(s) as if they are additional cameras and audio sources in your Cinamaker live stream and recording.

*Include Up to eight (8) Remote Guests/Remote Cameras on Mac and up to three (3) on iPad running Cinamaker Director Studio (Pro only).

Linkedin Live (Direct Integration)

Cinamaker is now a partner of Linkedin Live. If you are an approved Linkedin Live* streamer, you may simply live stream directly from Cinamaker to Linkedin in the same way you can live stream to YouTube and Facebook.

Why it Matters

With Cinamaker to Linkedin Live, you will be able to broadcast companywide updates & product launches, press conferences & interviews, webinars, workshops, product demos boost your sales through promotional live content, limited offers, and more.

Plus, you’ll be able to go live to attendees of LinkedIn Events!

*NOTE: LinkedIn Live allows only approved members to broadcast live video content to a LinkedIn profile, LinkedIn Page, or Event.* To learn more and to get started with LinkedIn Live, click here

Audio Input Support (Mac and iPad)

In addition to capturing audio through devices running Cinamaker Capture, you may also use your Mac or iPad running Cinamaker Director to directly plug in an additional microphone or USB audio source.

Why it Matters

Oftentimes users dont have the need, ability, or additional resources to have iOS devices running Cinamaker Capture. With audio input available on the Mac or iPad running Director, you now have an additional input source. 

NOTE: Depending on the model Mac or iPad, be sure you have the appropriate adapter(s) to convert your microphones or USB audio sources,

Apple FaceTime HD Camera (Mac only)

We are also announcing for the first time with Cinamaker Director Studio (macOS Big Sur) you can use your built-in Apple FaceTime HD camera as one of your 8 available camera sources. And for macOS Catalina users, you can access the Apple FaceTime camera with CinIO.

Why it Matters

Sometimes you want the simplicity of using one camera with Cinamaker. To access the built-in Apple FaceTime HD Camera (macOS Big Sur), simply open the Camera Browser…

and switch the FaceTime HD Camera to the On position.
