FilmmakingCentral Stream Live From NAB with Telestream Wirecast
Telestream’s Wirecast live webcasting software has been selected by NAB show media partner, FilmmakingCentral, to stream live broadcasts from the show floor during the NAB Convention in Las Vegas, April 11-14.
“This is the second year that FilmmakingCentral Live @ The NAB Show is broadcasting using Telestream Wirecast live webcasting software,” says Dave Basulto, founder of FilmmakingCentral. “We’re sticking with Wirecast because it’s dependable, easy to use, highly portable, and it just works.”
FilmmakingCentral Live @ The NAB Show will interview a wide range of companies geared toward the filmmaker and online content creator. News will also be broadcast about the latest gear and what’s hot at the show from Booth SL12005. Live show webcasts will be available for viewing on FilmmakingCentral’s Website and on the NAB Show Website. The FilmmakingCentral Facebook page will also host live show feeds along with information about daily giveaways.
Wirecast is a live, full-production video streaming software solution in a box for any desktop. It can be installed on a laptop to broadcast live events and create high-quality productions from any location with only a computer and an Internet connection.
Wirecast works just like a video switcher, allowing users to control real-time switching between multiple cameras while mixing in other media such as prerecorded video, audio, and graphics. With features such as chroma key, 3D graphics, transitions, layering, built-in titles, virtual sets, and scoreboards, Wirecast offers high production value for the creation of live and on-demand broadcasts for the Web. When ready to go live, users can broadcast directly to live broadcasting websites using Flash, QuickTime, or Windows Media.
Additionally, Wirecast will be used by Pixel Corps to live stream the Final Cut Pro User Group (FCPUG) SuperMeet at NAB on Tuesday April 12, from Bally’s Hotel. This is the second FCPUG SuperMeet being streamed this year by Pixel Corps using Wirecast. Live broadcasts will be available for viewing on Pixel Corp’s website and the FCPUG SuperMeet website.
“Wirecast is the easiest way to switch multiple cameras and stream live to multiple destinations at multiple compression rates and resolutions,” says Alex Lindsay, chief architect at Pixel Corps. “I do not know of any other software system that is as flexible as Wirecast, in terms of being able to do all of this from one consumer computer. It’s a great live streaming production tool.”
New Wirecast webcasting features will be demonstrated at the NAB Show in Telestream Booth SL3309. For those unable to attend the show, Telestream is featuring Wirecast along with its other products and Wirecast partner solutions during TelestreamLIVE, a series of live broadcasts from the show, being streamed by Wirecast at http://www.justin.tv/telestreamlive.
