Live Streaming Production Software

What Is Wirecast?

Telestream's Wirecast is a live video streaming production encoder that allows both Mac and Windows users to create live broadcasts. You can add motion or still titles to your live stream. Editing during the live stream is easy to do and you can add color filters or even create your own.

The main job of Wirecast is to encode, and it does that well. It covers a large range of video resolutions and bitrates to work for any project size. You can record your entire live broadcast straight to your hard drive as an MP4, Windows Media or MOV. Wirecast doesn't restrict you to streaming from one proprietary CDN (Content Delivery Networks) and comes with over 200 presets for streaming servers, services, and CDN's.
