With the introduction of Wirecast 8, Telestream added some cool new features and important performance enhancements to their popular Wirecast live streaming and production software. Wirecast is the only live streaming software available for both PCs and Macs. It is easy to use and allows you to mix video from multiple sources, add graphics, lower thirds, and virtual sets. You can stream simultaneously to multiple CDNs including Facebook, You Tube, Persiscope, Twitch Wowza and more. One of the best things about Wirecast is how easy it is to use. In a couple of hours you’ll be able to produce multi-camera shows. Wirecast also supports NDI for increased connectivity and functionality. Wirecast upgrades start at $299 while a new seat of Wirecast Studio is $695 and Wirecast Pro is $999.
With Wirecast 8 Telestream added a couple of new features we really love:
- Rendezvous allows you to bring remote guests into your productions
- Multi-track audio mixing allows you full control of your audio mix
- The much needed and requested multi-viewer lets you preview any source or camera angle.
