Telestream's Wirecast Go Mobile Live Streaming App for iPhone Now Available from Apple App Store
Building on Telestream’s experience in live streaming with Wirecast - the streaming production software used by hundreds of thousands of webcasters - Wirecast Go is ideally suited for both professional and amateur iPhone users who want to broadcast breaking news and live events. Wirecast Go combines ease of use with professional features, and offers robust live video streaming to multiple destinations, along with the ability to intuitively brand streams, add a range of graphics, and edit shots.
Whether they are watching a live concert, or participating in a spontaneous flash mob, Wirecast Go lets users share their experience in a professional-looking production directly to YouTube or to any RTMP server with just a few taps.
For professional TV news journalists and ENG (Electronic News gathering) teams, Wirecast Go offers the ability to shoot high quality video footage to produce professional quality live video that can be streamed to multiple destinations, live from the event.
Wirecast Go is available in two versions. The standard version is free and enables unlimited live streaming to YouTube from an iPhone. It allows insertion of images, logos and graphics from a user's photo library; social chat and sharing; and the ability to save two shots in a shot list. The premium features of Wirecast Go can be unlocked for just $5.99. These enable live streaming to any RTMP (Real Time Messaging Protocol) destination, as well as private or unlisted broadcasts on YouTube. Users can also switch between unlimited numbers of shots, and capture and replay highlights from the live production with just a few taps on the iPhone, which is great for sports and other live events.
