NEVADA CITY, Calif. — Telestream has updated the software to its Wirecast live streaming and production software for Mac and Windows to provide built-in pan, tilt and zoom control for robotic cameras, support for the X-keys Wirecast Control Surface, and paired encoding contribution with Facebook Live.
To enable more cost-effective multicamera production, Wirecast Pro is now optimized for the PTZOptics camera line using the VISCA-over-IP protocol. This capability adds flexibility and speed when generating alternative camera angles and framing from PTZ cameras without leaving the Wirecast interface.
Paired encoding to Facebook Live allows videographers to more easily target and stream content to Facebook pages for their clients, customers, and brands. Since this capability doesn’t require admin passwords or credentials for the main Facebook account, it’s particularly useful for pages with multiple contributors and cross-promotional streaming.
