With the recent launch of Windows Phone 7, many have wondered whether Wirecast will soon be obsolete. Will there be a new, free Wirecast software program that will finally put an end to Cablecasts? Well, to answer this question, it would be safe to say that as of right now, no such program exists - but that doesn't mean that Wirecast won't be around for a long time to come.
As it stands, Wirecast offers a great deal of value for an incredibly affordable price. The best way to describe Wirecast is the "pros" behind the product: live video production. With Wirecast, you are able to stream multiple cameras, add in remote cameras, display statistics to your audience, while simultaneously mixing in music and videos. Best of all, this incredible capability allows you to connect to your audience around the world through any type of Internet connection... even if they are on the other side of the globe! The beauty of Wirecast is the ability to use this live video streaming technology with any type of operating system, including Windows Mobile, Symbian SBS and Blackberry.
Although, in order to take full advantage of the forecast, it is important that you are able to have the right hardware. In order to do this, you should look into either purchasing a Windows based server, or connecting your existing website to your Wirecast account. With the server, you'll be able to host your Wirecast account on a custom web server. The same capabilities that are given to an individual host will be given to your organization. Once the right set of hardware is in place, wirecast will then allow for a multitude of features that will include: live video streams, automated scoring and analysis, multiple camera feeds, as well as user management and notification systems.
