Wirecast can help you produce high-quality live video productions to engage today’s media savvy audiences. From conferences and seminars, to webcasts and webinars, Wirecast provides live streaming solutions tailored to any event or streaming service provider.

Wirecast 4.0 delivers improved CPU and GPU efficiency, more flexible subscription plans, social media content moderation capabilities and expanded production and monitoring tools; all while offering a streamlined user interface.

Live Streaming

Streaming is an incredible way to connect with people across the world and build community. Businesses use streaming for training sessions, meetings and sales presentations as well as creating high-quality broadcasts that look professional using wirecast streaming software that’s simple yet packed with features ideal for livestreaming.

Wirecast’s latest version offers numerous new features that make it simpler than ever for you to use, including improved rendering and user interface performance, a dark theme option, redesigned user interface and compatibility with custom control surfaces from X-keys. Furthermore, content sources can easily be managed and streamed directly to Facebook pages while you monitor and mix audio using its built-in mixer which supports multichannel audio ingest as well as ASIO, WASAPI and CoreAudio compatible devices – plus much more!

Wirecast is an all-in-one streaming and production tool utilized by numerous houses of worship to live stream their sermons and services, educational institutions for graduations, seminars and other events, and individuals unable to physically attend services as it connects them through virtual attendance.

Wirecast works by using what are called shots-AV segments composed from multiple sources such as webcam images or video from your hard drive. With Wirecast you can add titles, scrolling or crawling text, professional animated 3D live titles from NewBlueFX’s Titler Live Express ($99 value included with every purchase of Wirecast), scoreboards, clocks and logos that make for compelling video productions.

Setting up a camera and recording live video is easy. Once it has been recorded, upload it directly to a content delivery network (CDN) for public consumption or use Wirecast’s local record feature to capture an identical copy if network issues arise during live events.

Add desktop presenters to your shot to stream the screen of another computer or slideshow presentation – perfect for business webinars! Additionally, capture and display social media feeds which may help keep audiences engaged with what’s going on in real time.

Church Streaming

Streaming church services online is an effective way to reach and engage people, whether your goal is attracting new members, strengthening existing congregations or reaching those unable to physically attend your services. Live video streaming also enables churches to promote special events and share updates with their audience – you may have multiple methods available depending on your goals and audience size.

Before beginning streaming, ensure you have the appropriate equipment. At minimum, this should include a camera, microphone and device on which to stream from. While streaming from smartphones may work fine for streaming purposes, investing in a proper camera setup will improve streaming experiences and reach more viewers. Multi-camera setups offer greater versatility while creating more immersive viewing experiences – but these may cost more.

A hybrid live-streaming setup combines elements from two of the above options. This setup uses a virtual stage to host services while cameras capture different angles; though more expensive, this setup offers greater flexibility and easier setup than its counterparts.

Churches can stream live services onto various platforms, such as their website or social media. Churches should consider streaming to a website as it allows them to promote other content related to church-related content on their site, like upcoming events and prayer requests; furthermore, streaming to a website allows viewers to interact with viewers by commenting or asking questions during services.

Restream Studio makes video production simple for Facebook, YouTube and third-party platforms alike, and the simple tools make livestreaming effortless for volunteers without prior experience. Plus, its software provides a downloadable version of each live stream so it can be posted directly onto websites or YouTube channels.

Events Streaming

Wirecast’s Events Streaming feature is an effective and simple way to share live events with viewers worldwide. Its intuitive design provides a professional appearance while offering features not available elsewhere – though before beginning its use it’s essential that you familiarise yourself with its basic principles first.

This software combines the functionality of both a broadcast studio and live video encoder into one program, making multi-camera productions with real-time graphics and titles possible for live events, recording them to disk or CDN for later replay, supporting various formats and streaming protocols such as RTMP and SRT for seamless livestreams to YouTube, Facebook or even your own website.

Wirecast 7 provides advanced production features like multi-camera switching, audio mixing and NDI output that enable you to create live broadcasts for a range of purposes including corporate communications and online learning. It also offers social interactivity by way of built-in tools for capturing and moderating comments on live streams as well as polling your audience – perfect for increasing engagement during a live event!

Wirecast can provide remote producers with an instant green room experience using Rendezvous peer-to-peer conferencing technology, allowing people from distant locations to join your video conference using either their webcam or smartphone and participate in panel discussions or group discussions with up to seven guest speakers.

EPAV employs Wirecast for various live video productions, such as conferences and events. The tool’s versatile feature set makes it particularly valuable in difficult-to-access locations, including multichannel audio ingest, support for ASIO/WASAPI/CoreAudio devices and editing tools that facilitate making adjustments easily to video/audio settings with no hassle; plus a unique “smart cropping” feature automatically adjusts content size based on display device!

Wirecast offers powerful tools for cost-effective and high quality production of events, worship services and content creation at any level – including cost-efficient recording, ingest, monitoring, inspection, transcoding and playback of video sources up to 4K capture from cameras, monitors or devices, audio/video mixing from multiple sources (prerecorded media clips, motion graphics, social media feeds or tally lights) plus the support for live media clips, motion graphics feeds or social media feeds as well as transcoding or playback of video sources.

Wirecast’s latest update brings with it enhanced audio processing and VST3 effects plugin support, giving producers unprecedented control of the sound of their stream. For instance, its “Normalize” option enables them to adjust volume levels for individual sources as well as their final mix, helping ensure an even audio level throughout broadcasts. Equalize can help reduce differences between source audio levels reducing discrepancies between them as well as correct pitch issues with musical instrument feeds.

Other features include the capability of directly incorporating comments from Twitter, YouTube and Facebook into live broadcasts to increase engagement with viewers and allow them to participate actively in the stream. Selected comments can then be dynamically updated in a social media title template so as to be displayed during live streaming.

Other enhancements include being able to monitor system CPU and GPU utilization, improved 4K support, tally lights, built-in screen recorder support and faster start-up time. Furthermore, Wirecast now supports NDI for easy transfer of an exact copy of its program mix mix to external systems like editing applications, effects systems or graphics applications.
