Improve video capture resource utilization and live video production quality
Matrox Multi integrates with Telestream Wirecast Pro for Mac to enable professional journalists, videographers, and producers to easily capture and produce multi-camera live events for the Web. The joint solution provides four simultaneous HD-SDI inputs into a single Mac Pro running Wirecast Pro live webcasting software.
Up until now, a common challenge has been how to efficiently add more camera sources to live streaming software running on standard desktop computers. The Matrox/Telestream solution combines improved capture and resource utilization with the best in live production.
Simply plug the Matrox Multi card into your Mac Pro and install Wirecast software on your computer. Wirecast will automatically detect the camera feeds, allowing you to easily switch between live feeds and other sources, such as prerecorded video.
