Create a Presentation or Slideshow with Mevo

Version 1.12 of the Mevo app supports the ability to import a slideshow as a PDF and present each slide seamlessly either as a fullscreen or over-the-shoulder graphic.

To access this feature, you must have a Vimeo Producer or Vimeo Premium plan; learn how to subscribe here. You will also need a supported microSD card inserted into your Mevo camera.

Slideshows must be in PDF format and accessible from your mobile device's native Files application. This means the PDF can either be downloaded and stored into the Files app directly, or you can configure the Files app to also display documents stored in iCloud, Google Drive, Dropbox, Adobe Acrobat, or other file storing apps (provided those apps are also installed).

Mevo can support a maximum of 50 slides per PDF. You cannot edit the document once it is uploaded to Mevo, so be sure your presentation is complete prior to your event.

To load the presentation, tap the graphics icon in the lower right corner of the production screen.

If you've selected the correct slideshow, tap the checkmark on the right side to upload it to your Mevo. If you selected the wrong slideshow, tap the preview to re-open the Files explorer.

The slideshow will take a moment to upload to your Mevo's microSD card (the larger your file, the longer it will take to upload). Once it has completed uploading, you can bring it into your production at any point while you are live.

Tap the slideshow to select it.

You will see a preview of what it will look like to your viewers. By default it will start on the first slide, but you can adjust which slide to start on by tapping the arrows in the bottom left corner.

To proceed with overlaying the slideshow and presenting it to your audience, tap the checkmark in the lower right corner.

You will now see your live production screen; notice the output preview (upper right) is showing the fullscreen overlay of the slideshow. You can control the slideshow from the app by using the direction arrows on the bottom of the screen.

When you no longer wish to display the slideshow, tap the graphics icon in the bottom right corner of the live production screen, then tap the red delete icon over the graphics preview.

You can also switch overlay types here. For example, to switch from a fullscreen to an OTS slideshow, tap one of the OTS placeholders to move the slideshow, then tap the checkmark that appears in the lower right corner to proceed.
