Pixel Corps Streams Live From San Francisco With Telestream Wirecast

Telestream, a leading provider of digital media tools and workflow solutions, has announced that its Wirecast live webcasting software has been selected by Pixel Corps, a guild of digital media content creators, for use at two major events this week in San Francisco.
Wirecast will then be used to stream live broadcasts from the floor at Macworld 2011 Expo, as well as from the Final Cut Pro User Group (FCPUG) Supermeet on January 28.
Alex Lindsay, Chief Architect at Pixel Corps, said: "Wirecast is the easiest way to switch multiple cameras and stream live to multiple destinations at multiple compression rates and resolutions. 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."
At Macworld and the Supermeet, Lindsay will use Wirecast to create lower third graphics and transitions, and to the Supermeet website. Lindsay will roam the Macworld show floor with a live video backpack. These feeds, along with green screen 3D video and stereo broadcasting being composited in Pixel Corps stand, will be submitted directly to Wirecast for live streaming and recording to disk.
Barbara DeHart, VP of Marketing at Telestream, said: "We're honoured that Pixel Corps and its team of well-respected digital media craftsmen selected Wirecast for these important events. Wirecast provides an innovative and affordable solution for high-quality video streaming for all types of live events."
Wirecast is live video production software for laptop and desktop computers that is available for a fraction of the cost of broadcast hardware equipment. Wirecast works just like a video switcher, controlling real-time switching between multiple cameras while mixing in other media such as pre-recorded video, audio and graphics. With features such as chroma key, transitions, 3D graphics and built-titles, Wirecast offers high production value for the creation of professionals webcasts.
