Telestream—a provider of digital media tools and workflow solutions—introduces Wirecast 4.1 live video production and streaming software.
Wirecast 4.1 adds integrations to other systems as well as offering new features that provide more choices for getting content into Wirecast, including remote, multi-channel, and wireless IP transmission, the company says.
Additionally, Wirecast 4.1 is Mac OS X Lion compatible. Wirecast and Wirecast Pro webcasting software provide live switching, production, and streaming capabilities that enable Mac and Windows users to easily and cost-effectively create real-time and on-demand video broadcasts for the Web. “We are pleased to expand Wirecast to include support for more input devices and new capabilities which means more choices for our users,” said Barbara DeHart, vice president of marketing at Telestream.
New audio support for Wirecast Desktop Presenter allows users to integrate Skype or any video chat client into their webcasts, according to Telestream. Desktop Presenter is a Wirecast feature that broadcasts the desktop of any computer connected to the network, making it particularly useful for video training and product demonstrations. When combined with Wirecast’s ability to display multiple camera feeds on a single screen, allowing users to see and hear multiple speakers for news or video talk show programs, Telestream says.
