Wirecast 11, Available Now

A new version of Wirecast has just been released by Telestream with new features and significant improvements. In the powerful Wirecast Pro version the Web stream plugin has been completely rewritten to improve stability and performance, this is fantastic for remote video contributions although you are still better off using the Teradek Wirecast Plugin if using their Cube encoder/decoders, because they offer lower latency. The new plugin also lets you utilise IP-enabled Panasonic and Lumens PTZ camera streams, if they don’t have NDI.
