Telestream Shows Latest Wirecast Gear At IBC 2019

Workflow and media delivery technology vendor Telestream has announced the latest version of its Wirecast Gear video streaming production hardware.

This comes as a ready-configured workstation designed to enable broadcast professional live productions quickly within minutes, avoiding issues of hardware system compatibility, configuration and integration. To be demonstrated for the first time at IBC 2019, the new Wirecast Gear 400 Series is aimed at marketers, educators, corporate and online trainers, event producers, sports broadcasters, worship service staff, news gatherers and others seeking to deliver professional live streamed productions out of the box.

“The new Wirecast Gear is our fastest, most capable, live streaming production system to date,” commented Lynn Elliot, Senior Product Manager at Telestream. “Users can simply do more of everything without worrying about running out of gas. That means more simultaneous encodes, more titles and graphics, and more sources than ever before.”

The performance gains are enabled by having more CPU cores, higher clock speeds, faster RAM, and the latest NVMe storage. The 400 series builds on the previous Gear 300 series’ server-grade processing, adding a NVIDIA Quadro GPU that can produce up to four simultaneous 1080p 60fps encodes and a 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 than its predecessor. It supports up to five simultaneous cameras via baseband SDI or 4 cameras via HDMI depending on model.

Wirecast Gear offers a choice of destinations, including Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Periscope and any RTMP stream. Wirecast users can take advantage of a new stock media library to 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.
