BoxCast has completed the integration of Telestream Wirecast with its BoxCast platform. Telestream Wirecast is a live video production software for Mac or Windows that helps create high-quality live video webcasts from multiple sources, including webcams and screen shares to using multiple cameras, graphics and media for live events.
As a result of the BoxCast/Wirecast integration, users can now easily stream high-quality video using BoxCast’s advanced, cloud-based platform. With unlimited streaming, viewership and destinations, BoxCast manages the challenging part of live video streaming.
The BoxCast Live Streaming Platform provides Wirecast users access to a number of features, including:
• Single Source Simulcasting
• Ticketed Monetization
• Password Protection
• Video Embedding
• Cloud Transcoding
• Live Support
How does it work? Using BoxCast’s RTMP video ingestion option, users can select BoxCast as a streaming destination from within Wirecast. This allows Wirecast to stream directly to BoxCast. It will use the computer for encoding the video and audio, and it will transmit over RTMP.
The setup can be used with either a single-use RTMP or static RTMP channel. However in both cases, the setup must be done within 10 minutes of a scheduled broadcast.
Another way to stream from Wirecast is to send the Wirecast program output to a secondary HDMI or SDI output that is plugged into the BoxCaster or BoxCaster Pro. The BoxCaster’s hardware encoding relieves your computer of encoding the video and audio in addition to taking advantage of specially-designed communication protocols to optimize your available network connectivity.
BoxCast integration with Telestream Wirecast is available immediately.
