Professional-grade production capabilities for Wirecast

Features include built-in PTZ and paired encoding contribution with Facebook Live

Telestream announced a new release of Wirecast, the company’s live streaming and production software for Mac and Windows. The latest release features built-in PTZ (Pan, Tilt, Zoom) control for robotic cameras in Wirecast Pro, support for the X-Keys Wirecast Control Surface, paired encoding contribution with Facebook Live.

Paired encoding to Facebook Live allows videographers and freelancers to more easily target and stream content to Facebook pages for clients, customers, and their brands without requiring admin passwords or credentials for the main Facebook account. This is particularly useful for pages with multiple contributors and cross-promotional streaming.

To enable multi-camera productions without adding extra staff and cost, Wirecast Pro now supports built-in PTZ control. Optimized for the PTZOptics camera line using the VISCA-over-IP protocol, this provides added flexibility and speed when generating alternative camera angles and framing from PTZ cameras without leaving the Wirecast interface.

Support for P.I. Engineering’s X-keys Wirecast control surface enables rapid, responsive operation of Wirecast in fast-paced live production environments. The new Wirecast control surface offers instant access to 12 sources on each of the five layers in Wirecast. The status of each layer and source is indicated on the controller via a light behind the corresponding key.
