Best Practices

Minimum Required Upload Speed


  • It is recommended that an upload speed rate of at least double the selected video bitrate be available, especially for a total target bit-rate of 10Mbps (Megabits per second) or less, or when there are multiple outgoing streams.

  • Upload speed can be tested at a website such as TestMy.net/upload.

  • Additional tasks that can consume upload bandwidth on the network should also be considered when determining how much of the available upload bandwidth can be allocated towards streaming

  •  

Rendezvous

Wirecast Rendezvous uses WebRTC technology that can be very resource intensive. For the best experience, we suggest considering the following table when choosing hardware:


Studio (2 guests + 1 host)
Pro (7 guests + 1 host)

 

    Studio (2 guests + 1 host)   Pro (7 guests + 1 host)
Bandwidth4 Add 4 Mbps Add 5+ Mbps5
Processor4 i5 quad-core6 i7 quad-core6

 

High frame-rate streaming (60fps):


  • High frame-rate streaming will result in increased CPU usage and require a higher bit rate (4Mbps or higher) for a quality encode.

  • Simply switching to a higher frame-rate without ensuring the CPU and bitrate are sufficient may result in a lower quality encode.

  •  

CPU Usage:


  • Consider lowering your canvas frame rate and/or streaming resolution to lower CPU usage.

  • Maintained system CPU usage greater than 60% will increase the likelihood of dropped frames.

  •  

ISO Recording


  • Solid State Drive or fast RAID array recommended for ISO Recording and Replay functionality.

  • Actual data rates will vary depending on quality level selected for ProRes (Mac) or MJPEG recording (Windows), as well as the resolution and frame rate selected.

  • For Mac ProRes recording please refer to Apple’s ProRes data rate specifications.

  • Windows MJPEG Best Quality Guidelines (Megabytes per second):

  • 1080i and 1080p 29.97 and 30 FPS, MJPEG Best Quality – ~25MB/sec

  • 1080p 60 FPS, MJPEG Best Quality – ~50 MB/sec

  • 720p 59.94 and 60 FPS, MJPEG Best Quality – ~20 MB/sec

  • Total expected data rate should be compared to available disk write speed to ensure adequate disk throughput.

  • Failure to ensure the available disk write speed is greater than the highest expected total data rate may result in frames being dropped from recordings (ISO, Replay, and Record-to-Disk).

  •  

Hardware accelerated encoding requirements:

 


  • Intel Quick Sync Video encoding requires an Intel CPU with an Intel® QuickSync Video core. 

  • List of Intel CPUs supporting QuickSync

  • NVIDIA NVENC encoding requires an NVidia GPU with Kepler architecture or newer. 

  • NVIDIA only maintains a general list of supported GPUs

 

Supported Input Devices:

  • Audio Capture
  • Cameras
  • Capture Cards
  • Control Surfaces
  • NDI
  • Screen Capture
  • Web Stream sources/ IP Cameras
