Wirecast

Postby swensj » Tue Nov 15, 2011 10:59 pm

I have been using Wirecast for many online broadcast streams. Its great for lower third titles and easy to use hymn slides or JPG pics similar to powerpoint presentations. Has anyone been able to setup the correct BROADCAST SETTINGS inside Telestream's Wirecast to connect to Meetinghouse Webcast's SERVER on a PC?

I think you would have to take that up with the LDS Webcast developers. I know they run their own servers and expect the video format to conform to one of their established standards. Even before an upload can be started, there's a couple of rounds of handshaking going on to exchange the Unit ID, Session ID, type of stream to be uploaded, and probably a few other things as well. Off the top of my head, I would say it's doubtful the Telestream settings can be tweaked to accommodate all the info the church is expecting in the exact format they require.
So we can better help you, please edit your Profile to include your general location.

Wirecast Software Based Switcher Proving Successful

Postby swensj » Sun Nov 20, 2011 2:01 pm

Well we finally found a way to do it and the results turned out pretty good. We basically setup Wirecast on a Mac station - built the show on that laptop then set I've attached some pictures of the items and our workflow along with a sample broadcast of the web feed after the conference. We had the feed sent to the back on a projector screen as well as the breakout rooms for overflow. The Wirecast is a software based switcher and we can upload videos, pictures, jpegs and more. I was really impressed by how it handled for the production. We had 2 other church buildings tie in and attend the broadcast. I did hear that at times, the video would fall about a half a second behind the audio so we'll have to test it further for future broadcasts. Good luck!
