The solution comes with more CPU cores, higher clock speeds, and faster RAM, and the latest NVMe storage. The 400 series builds on the Gear - 300 series’ server-grade processing and adds a professional NVIDIA Quadro GPU that can produce up to four simultaneous 1080p 60fps encodes and an SDI program output or multi-view without using additional CPU bandwidth. Wirecast Gear can also create more ISO and archival grade encodes simultaneously for future repurposing of content.

Wirecast Gear supports up to five simultaneous cameras via baseband SDI or 4 cameras via HDMI depending on model. With six channels of audio, and professional XLR/TRS balanced audio inputs, audio signals are always pristine even with longer cables. For enhanced portability and durability, the system has no moving parts except for the fan.

Wirecast Gear offers a choice of unlimited destinations (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Periscope, and any RTMP stream destination). Wirecast users can take advantage of the new stock media library to easily find additional b-roll video, audio, and graphics. With the Wirecast Rendezvous feature, up to seven remote guests can be invited into the streaming program from anywhere a good internet connection exists.
