Germany’s Fourgreen TV Taps Wirecast For American Football

Berlin-based streaming specialist Fourgreen TV has adopted Telestream Wirecast as its live streaming production platform.

“Focusing on social media and Internet TV formats, we produce high-quality live streams and 3D Tours,” explained Michael Reischer, founder and producer. “We help our clients establish their new media profile, adding value to their fanbase communications without breaking the bank.”

Fourgreen TV works in the local German leagues of American Football (GFL). Together with German sports writer, Chris Höb, Reischer has founded SCOUTREPORT – The American Football Magazine. From production studios in Berlin, they produce live shows, record interviews with players and team coaches and live stream GFL games. Using Telestream Wirecast in combination with Facebook Live, Fourgreen TV brings the magazine to smartphones, tablets, laptops and smart TVs across Germany and further afield.

“We provide live streaming services to sports teams that otherwise would not appear on broadcast TV, enabling their fans to stay in touch with their teams and players over social media,” explained Reischer. “Wirecast helps us create a really efficient workflow with easy to use settings. Its stability and flexibility within a live production environment make it a powerful option and it’s competitive pricing opens up a large market of potential customers for this service.”

A key Wirecast feature is its strong integration with the Facebook Live API. System features include streaming to pages, profiles, groups and events. There is an option for branded and sponsored content and place tagging; and live viewer and engagement tallies to monitor viewing audiences.
