Telestream Wirecast 6.0 now
Telestream has announced the availability of Wirecast 6.0, the latest version of its live streaming software. Wirecast is claimed to be the industry’s only cross-platform, all-in-one live streaming production software that enables capture, live production and encoding of live streams for broadcast to multiple servers and platforms simultaneously. With new powerful production capabilities, streamlined workflows, and expanded content source options, Wirecast 6.0 offers the capabilities of more expensive hardware solutions with the flexibility and affordability of a software application.
Wirecast is ideal for broadcasting professional-looking live web shows, news, online gaming, sporting events, concerts, church services, corporate meetings, lectures and much more. With Wirecast, 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.
“With Wirecast, you don’t need to be a video professional to create polished live broadcasts. It is easy and affordable and all you need is a camera, a computer and an Internet connection to broadcast your video productions to any audience, live or on-demand for a fraction of the cost of other live video streaming solutions,” explains Barbara DeHart, VP of Desktop Business at Telestream.
The new Replay function enables the capture and replay of clips during live production, allowing users to easily switch in important captured segments right from the interface. Using Replay, users can slow down, speed up or scrub across a clip and find the exact moment to show. Replay is useful for sports broadcasts or for any application that needs to reshow portions of a live broadcast.
The new Playlist feature in Wirecast 6.0 allows users to create playlists on the fly: they can easily drag-and-drop the queuing of multiple videos, images, audio or live shots to perfectly automate broadcasts, add commercial breaks, or stream archived content during off hours. Playlists can also be used to rotate live camera views.
