Logitech announces Mevo Core 4K livestreaming camera

Logitech has announced its latest streaming solution, the Logitech Mevo Core. The Mevo Core is a 4K camera for livestreaming and content creation which you can control from a smartphone or tablet.

Micro Four Thirds sensor

The Mevo Core has an 8.3 megapixel 4K 4/3 CMOS sensor and is Logitech’s first Micro Four Thirds camera. It’s also the company’s first camera with an interchangeable lens system. The camera has an ISO range from 100 to 25600, so should be good in a range of lighting scenarios. In addition, the Mevo Core features a contrast-based autofocus system.

The Mevo Core features two USB-C ports, one of which allows for UVC use as a webcam. There is also an HDMI port, a 3.5 mm TRS audio input and a microSD card slot for recording video. In addition, the camera has ¼-20 sockets on four sides for mounting. The front of the Mevo Core has two RGB tally lights.

Video recording or streaming

This camera can record MP4 video at 30fps in 4K, 1080p and 720p video with data rates of 40 Mbps, 20 Mbps and 10 Mps respectively.  The available codes are H.264 or HEVC. Alternatively, you can use the camera for video streaming at 30 fps in 1080p (6 Mbps), 720p (3.5 Mbps), 480p (1.5 Mbps) or 360p (1 Mbps).


The Mevo Core has a built-in array of three MEMS (microelectromechanical) microphones. These feature spatial audio processing for speech and music modes. You can also use an external mic with the 3.5 mm TRS input or via a USB audio interface into one of the camera’s USB-C connectors.

Wi-Fi support

The camera has built-in Wi-Fi 6E support so you can connect multiple Mevo cameras and stream wirelessly. You can use the optional ethernet power adaptor if you need a wired solution. The Mevo Core also supports Network Device Interface (NDI) and Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) for livestreaming.

Other features

Logitech quotes the battery life of the Mevo Core as up to six hours when recording at 4K 30p or streaming at 1080 30p. The camera’s compact design measures 3.5 inches (9 cm) by 3.5 inches (9 cm) by 3.25 inches (8.24 cm). The Mevo Core weighs around 1.5 pounds (700 g) including the battery.

Mevo Multicam app

To get the most out of the Mevo Core, you need to use the Mevo Multicam app. This is a free download available for iOS and Android devices. Using the app, you can control multiple cameras and livestream your content.  You can also adjust camera settings such as focus, optical zoom, aperture and audio levels. In addition, you can create custom graphics and use picture-in-picture effects for your livestream.

What we think

The Mevo Core is a great addition to Logitech’s livestreaming ecosystem. The 4K sensor means that you can digitally zoom for a 1080p livestream without losing resolution. You can also take advantage of the range of high-quality Micro Four Thirds lenses on the market. In addition, with the Multicam app, you can quickly and easily set up and control your multicam livestream. The only downside is the price, as one Mevo Core costs the same as a set of three Mevo Start cameras. You could also get a mirrorless camera for less. However, for content creators who want a simple livestreaming solution that works straight out of the box, the Mevo Core is worth checking out.

Pricing and availability

The Mevo Core costs $999 and is available at Logitech.com, B&H Photo Video and Amazon. Currently, it is only available in the United States and Canada.
