Telestream, the developers of Wirecast live streaming production software, announced that make.tv, a cloud-based live video production studio is now an integrated drop-down destination within Wirecast. This integration lets users easily send streams to make.tv, which features interactive capabilities and a cloud-based production hub that allows teams to collaborate remotely in the production.
Wirecast’s live video feeds are transmitted directly to the make.tv Studio where the stream can be mixed with other incoming live streams, enhanced with on-screen graphics, effects, interactive capabilities and uploaded media. make.tv Studio’s cloud-based design enables teams from different locations to collaborate on the same production to optimize efficiency and control. The final live stream can be broadcast live to any RTMP-capable streaming server or destination such as YouTube Live or Ustream, or CDNs including Akamai or Limelight.
Wirecast is the only cross-platform, all-in-one live streaming production software that enables capture, live production, and encoding of live streams for broadcast to multiple servers and platforms simultaneously. Wirecast is ideal for streaming or recording live internet shows, broadcasting breaking news and sports, streaming live concerts and games, transmitting church services, corporate meetings, lectures and more. Pro production features include live scoreboards, 3D virtual sets, chroma key support, advanced audio controls and more.

The versatile solution allows production of multi-camera live streams, mixing with pre-recorded media and mobile/audience cameras, and distributing it live to Facebook, live destinations such as YouTube Live and Ustream, many CDNs, or simply to corporate websites. Inputs can come from anywhere in the world and easily mixed into output streams as the production studio resides in the cloud.
