Matrox Quad HD card supports Telestream Wirecast 6.0
Matrox has announced availability of support for Telestream Wirecast 6.0 for Windows with the Matrox VS4 quad HD capture card. In a single PCIe slot, Matrox VS4 provides up to four independent HD-SDI inputs with up to eight embedded audio channels per SDI source and automatic input detection. Matrox VS4 not only sends the video feeds to Wirecast for streaming, it simultaneously provides high-quality ISO recording of all the original video and audio feeds to NLE-friendly codecs — ready for post-event editing.
Wirecast 6.0 adds new production capabilities including the creation of playlists on the fly, easy replay of important moments and easy social media integration with Twitter messages overlaid directly onto the broadcast.
“Wirecast provides a cost-effective solution for the creation and streaming of professional-quality live video productions to online audiences,” said Tom Prehn, Wirecast product manager at Telestream. “Matrox is a valued industry partner that has been at the forefront of streaming technology. The integration between Wirecast 6 and Matrox VS4 provide users powerful live streaming production with 64-bit technology, virtually unlimited memory, improved stability and performance as well as powerful ISO recording of their live streams.”
“With full turnkey, multi-channel HD streaming and recording systems based on VS4 and Wirecast available from some certified systems builders starting under $5000, virtually anyone can create professional-looking live web shows,” said Wayne Andrews, product manager at Matrox. “Users can stream multiple live cameras while dynamically mixing in other media such as movies, images and sounds, and adding production features such as transitions, built-in titles, chroma key, virtual sets and live scoreboards.”
