Telestream’s Wirecast Pro 5 now supports live programme output to Blackmagic Design’s Intensity and DeckLink capture and playback devices, enabling more flexible live streaming production workflows. This integration allows users to take a live Wirecast programme feed and capture it to a Blackmagic Design product, for use in editing, effects or other broadcast design workflows.
“Our customers have asked for a way to take an SDI programme feed directly out of Wirecast,” said Filippa Hasselstrom, director of desktop product marketing at Telestream. “We are pleased to announce this can now be accomplished as a result of the integration with Blackmagic Design using the Wirecast 5 Output SDK.”
Integration with DeckLink and Intensity products was enabled by Wirecast’s new Output SDK, which was introduced with the release of Wirecast 5. This SDK provides hardware manufacturers with the ability to integrate their products directly with Wirecast. The software is a cross-platform, all-in-one live streaming production tool that enables capture, live production, and encoding of live streams for broadcast to multiple servers and platforms simultaneously.
“It’s very exciting to see Blackmagic Design’s desktop video products integrated with Wirecast,” commented Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “Using Wirecast with Blackmagic’s DeckLink and Intensity products will give customers a high performance, seamless SDI streaming workflow.”
