Telestream has announced Version 7 of Wirecast, the leading live streaming and production software. Wirecast 7, which will be available later this month, adds new powerful production capabilities, GPU-accelerated encoding, and a streamlined user interface that allows users to effortlessly create and stream high-quality live broadcasts from their computers to dozens of popular destinations such as Facebook Live and YouTube.
Wirecast 7 allows event producers to create the highest quality live-streamed productions, with multi-camera switching, graphics, titles, and live encoding. With the new ISO recording feature, Wirecast Pro can save all original “clean” source camera media allowing an editor to easily repurpose content, free of any overlay graphics from the original broadcast.
The new User Interface in Wirecast 7 enables quicker and more flexible access to shot editing features and enhances on-the-fly editing. With the Shot Editor panel, users have more control over every aspect of a broadcast, including the time-saving in-shot source toggles that enable users to turn video and audio layers on and off within each shot for dynamic editing of complex composite shots.
Wirecast 7.0 adds more options for how text can be displayed on screen. Text can be entered live, via a file or from an RSS feed enabling a different user to prepare text that will be automatically picked up in the broadcast. A new audio mixer controls every source from one location, and an enhanced “mix minus” feature selectively mutes any source, such as the user’s own voice, while otherwise monitoring full stream audio output. A Global Hotkey Management system speeds up any repetitive task by allowing users to create their own hotkeys.
New Features in Wirecast Version 7:
* GPU-Accelerated encoding – for hardware encoding performance and less CPU usage
* Improved CPU utilization – for smoother, faster, streams
* Graphical Output Statistics – to see the health of the system (CPU/Memory usage) and the output stream (framerate, bitrate, and more).
Wirecast 7 will be available at the end of June on the Telestream store and through Telestream’s network of resellers. It will be unveiled to the public for the first time at InfoComm 16 at Magewell Booth N1850 and at the PTZ Optics Booth N2133.
