Wirecast is the only cross-platform, all-in-one live streaming production software that enables capture, live production, and encoding of live streams for broadcast to multiple servers and platforms simultaneously. Wirecast is ideal for streaming or recording live internet shows, broadcasting breaking news and sports, streaming live concerts and games, transmitting church services, corporate meetings, lectures and more.
You don't need to be a video professional to create polished live broadcasts. Wirecast is easy and affordable and all you need is a camera, a computer and an Internet connection to broadcast your live video productions to any audience, live or on-demand at a fraction of the cost of other live video streaming solutions.
Take advantage of powerful, cost-efficient hardware encoding capabilities for better performance and less CPU utilization.
ISO recording (Pro)
Create high-resolution recordings of your individual cameras or audio sources. Isolate clean shots that can be used later for editing offline or for live replay.
With our new Global Hotkey Management System, you can now create your own hotkeys for switching, replay or any repetitive task in Wirecast.
New ways to configure Text
Add text to your broadcast from a variety of sources: typed in text, from a file, or from an RSS feed.
Delay the video and/or audio of an incoming source to better sync. Save thousands of dollars on expensive hardware.
Adjust the brightness, contrast, gamma, hue and saturation for all of your video and graphic sources.
3D Animated Titles
Create beautiful, animated 3D titles and graphics with Titler Live Express (a $99 value), now free with Wirecast 7. Choose from over 60 professionally-designed main title and lower third templates then customize the color, font and image to fit your needs.
