This is perfect for showing PowerPoint or Keynote presentations, training webcasts and product demonstrations as well as for broadcasting live interviews using Skype or other chat clients. Desktop Presenter is a free application for transmitting a computer's desktop across the network into Wirecast. You can download and install on as many machines as you like.
SDK for Added Integration
Telestream is continuing to add support and integration for 3rd party capture cards, cameras and input devices. And with Wirecast's SDK for partners, camera and device manufacturers can create their own source plugins for Wirecast. If your favorite device is not yet supported, you are encouraged to contact your device manufacturer and let them know about Telestream's SDK.
Multiple user-definable layers
Keep even the most complex projects organized with Wirecast's multiple layer support, allowing up to 35 layers of live compositing. Easily place a background music track or a watermark over your webcast that stays active even when switching between multiplecameras and shots.
Add polish to your broadcast by using professional-looking transitions as you switch between your cameras and sources. Generate transitions and effects in real-time, including cross-fade, 3D cube, swinging doors, and cuts.
Easily add titles and lower thirds to your broadcast, with more than 30 built-in professional broadcast quality title themes. Pick your favorite, enter your text and you're done.
Transport your production to a new studio or location using Wirecast's high quality GPU accelerated real-time green screen solution. Replace your (green) background with your own video or still image background.
Custom Canvas Size
The custom canvas size feature is helpful when you want to capture and stream non-traditional broadcast resolutions (for example game capture).
Switch between sources with confidence! The live thumbnails feature lets you see real-time displays of all your live source shots in the shot window. See exactly what's happening on each live input at any point in time, so you can switch between multiple live cameras faster and with confidence.
When you switch to a recorded video, the countdown clock will display the remaining time of that video, making it easier to prepare for the next switch.
