Telestream, a global leader in file-based media workflow orchestration, media streaming and delivery technologies, announced the latest version of Wirecast Gear, a new generation of the company’s award-winning live video streaming production hardware.
Powerful, purpose-built, and easy to use, the fully configured workstation allows anyone to broadcast professional live productions in a matter of minutes. The new Wirecast Gear will be demonstrated for the first time at the upcoming IBC tradeshow (booth 7.C16 & 7.C14) and will start shipping mid-September, 2019.
With Wirecast Gear, live event producers can focus on production and streaming instead of worrying about hardware system compatibility, configuration, and integration. It is ideally suited for marketers, educators, corporate and online trainers, event producers, sports broadcasters, worship service staff, news gatherers, and anyone who wants to deliver professional live streamed productions out of the box.
Wirecast Gear’s new hardware speed represents a significant performance increase compared to previous generation hardware. With more CPU cores, higher clock speeds, and faster RAM, and the latest NVMe storage, Wirecast Gear is the highest performing turnkey system offered in its price range.
The 400 series builds on the Gear – 300 series’ server-grade processing and adds a professional NVIDIA Quadro GPU that can produce up to four simultaneous 1080p 60fps encoders and an SDI program output or multi-view without using additional CPU bandwidth. Wirecast Gear can also create more ISO and archival grade encounters simultaneously for future repurposing of content.
Wirecast Gear supports up to five simultaneous cameras via baseband SDI or 4 cameras via HDMI depending on model. With six channels of audio, and professional XLR/TRS balanced audio inputs, audio signals are always pristine, even with longer cables. For enhanced portability and durability, the system has no moving parts except for the fan.
