Wirecast Gear streaming appliance let's you attach up to 4 HD cameras for professional level live productions.

The Wirecast Gear 110 ($4,995) has 4 HDMI inputs which makes it perfect for setting up your own studio using off the shelf, prosumer, HD cameras like the GoPro, Canon Vixia , Sony Handycam or any other affordable models. You can also use PTZ Optics robotic cameras which eliminates the need for a camera operator. Wirecast Gear 110 is the world's first and only full featured, HD live production and streaming, multi-camera solution for under $5K that supports off the shelf, low cost (or expensive) HDMI cameras.

Tech Note: The single most important factor in creating fantastic looking video from your studio is lighting. Investing in an iKan light kit for 3 point lighting will give you much better chromakeys, make your talent look better and provide depth of field that will give your video the professional look you are looking for.

If you've got more professional HD cams with SDI, the Wirecast Gear 210 ($5,995) or Wirecast Gear 220 ($7,995) system is for you. These allow up to 4 SDI cameras to be switched. This is important for those of you doing events in large venues like auditoriums, worship services and sports. SDI allows for much longer runs allowing the Wirecast operator to be anywhere in the facility. PTZOptics has robotic cameras available with SDI connections that also work perfectly with the Wirecast Gear 200 systems.

Tech Note: You can use an Epiphan AV.io video grabber to add an additional HDMI or SDI source to your productions using Wirecast Gear. Just plug it into one of the available USB 3 ports and your off to the races. No special drivers or software to install. AV.io will immediately come up as an input choice inside Wirecast.

Many Wirecast owners are already using some combination of HD cameras and capture hardware, but often times these solutions are kluged together and, as a result, their reliability and stability can be less then optimal. Telestream knows this based on the high levels of support calls and emails they've been getting over the years. Often time the issues have to do with both the capture hardware and the computer being used. Some capture hardware rely heavily on the CPU to encode the video on ingest, overloading what may seem like a powerful enough computer. Often times these issues don't become apparent until 10 or 15 minutes into your live production. Negatively impacting your production and sometimes even crashing your system. With Wirecast Gear this is not longer a problem. Wirecast Gear 200 series

Wirecast Gear hardware has been configured and optimized for Wirecast.

Wirecast Gear is a remarkably powerful computer for such a small form factor. They've put in the right CPU, with enough graphics performance and RAM to get the job done perfectly - every time! Pre-configured with the latest version 7 of Wirecast, Gear delivers a level of stability and reliability that allows you to run a 4 camera shoot, loaded with graphics, virtual sets and transition effects without missing a beat. With the Wirecast Gear hardware you no longer have to worry about pushing your show or Wirecast to the limit. Wirecast Gear can take everything you can throw at it. It's designed from the ground up to run Wirecast better, stronger and more reliably than any other hardware available. In addition to including a full license of Wirecast Pro 7 your Gear box also includes NewBlueFX Titler Pro Live software. This allows you to create dynamic, animated titles and graphics that you can instantly add live to your shows to give them even more production value. Each Wirecast Gear Configuration includes a different version level of NewBlue Titler Pro Live, but we can offer you low cost upgrades for more features and performance. With Wirecast Gear's built in SSD drive or an external USB 3 drive you'll be able to record not just the finished program but your footage from each of the cameras. This is called ISO recording and it's fantastic for archiving and giving you all the original footage for post production.

Tech Note: You can use your Wirecast Gear box to run your favorite Windows based video editing software when you're not doing your live show! Gear is a fully functional Windows 10 based computer. We've run Adobe Premiere Pro CC, Avid Media Composer, Grass Valley EDIUS and MAGIX Vegas Pro 14 without any problems. This multi-functionality of Wirecast Gear makes it an even better value for independent, worship, educational and corporate video producers.

Wirecast Gear is Portable

Wirecast Gear is the perfect solution for taking your live show on the road. Wirecast Gear uses solid state hard drives so you don't have to worry about it getting bumped around in transit or jostled during your live production. The small form factor means you can pack up your Gear, along with all your cameras and a small monitor in a few bags or flight cases. If you are a school or corporation you can easily set it up on a cart to allow it to be taken to different locations within your facility. Wirecast Pro 7's built in encoding allows you to simultaneously stream to multiple CDNs / sources, including but not limited to Facebook Live, YouTube Live, Twitch, Ustream, Wowza and many more. Using standard RTMP, RTP and Windows Media protocols to encode to H.264 at your choice of video quality and bitrate for maximum flexibility.
