Telestream has announced Wirecast S, a new version of its Wirecast live streaming and production software exclusively designed to enable studio-grade production for live events in Microsoft Stream, an enterprise video service that allows users to securely upload, stream live, and share video.
The new software is available as a free 30-day trial download when Microsoft enables live event streaming and scheduling for its Stream customers, and as a monthly subscription thereafter.
Wirecast S users can now initiate streaming to their company or group quickly by using a number of quick-start templates for town halls, presentations and announcements.
In order to create high-production value webcasts, Wirecast S makes it easy to switch between multiple cameras and add Skype feeds, images, titles, and sound tracks within the application.
“Wirecast S makes corporate live video broadcasting accessible to any company or employee using the Microsoft Stream platform within Office 365. Our goal was to make a tool that was lightweight, flexible, and easy to use and run while still enabling a professional look and feel for any broadcast,” said Scott Murray, VP product management at Telestream.
“Working closely with the Microsoft Stream product team, we have developed a solution that integrates tightly with their platform, streamlining live video creation and encoding into a unified, secure process that extends and facilitates communication within an organisation’s existing Office 365 infrastructure.”
