Telestream renews Wirecast with support for Apple Silicon hardware
Telestream has announced the release of a new version of Wirecast, its live production and streaming platform for Mac and Windows. It counts with support for Apple Silicon (M1) hardware, among other new features.
With this upgrade, users can now send their live outputs to a secondary display. The live program feed can be sent to a big screen or to an independent capture device without the need for specific hardware. When paired with a UVC HDMI capture device, users can capture live output for use in other applications like Zoom or Teams as an alternative to using a virtual camera or microphone.
The new version features a Lock Shot Icon, where users can take a snapshot of a live shot and save it as an icon thumbnail. For example, PTZ cameras with multiple shots configured can display customized snapshots for each angle for quick identification during production. Furthermore, Wirecast features PTZ control for Sony X-Series IP cameras, which adds direct support for Sony X-series cameras from within the Wirecast PTZ controller. In addition, there is an Input Connection selector for Blackmagic devices, which adds an option to choose video/audio input connections (HDMI/SDI) for Blackmagic source devices directly from Wirecast.
“This latest release of Wirecast raises the bar once again on production workflow for live streaming,” said Lynn Elliott, Senior Product Manager for Wirecast. “Our goal was to further simplify setup and live production tasks so that users can produce even more visually engaging content instinctively, giving them more time to concentrate on guests and their audience.”
