Mobeon Selects Telestream Wirecast to Live Stream from Streaming Media West

Mobeon has selected Telestream’s Wirecast to capture and live stream the conference sessions and keynotes from the 2013 Streaming Media West conference, which will take place at the Hyatt Regency in Huntington Beach, Calif. November 19-20.

Telestream“Shooting and recording simultaneous sessions in multiple rooms is a challenge that requires professional skills and tools,” said Mark Alamares, CEO at Mobeon. “We needed a robust video switching and streaming system that integrated with advanced equipment from multiple manufacturers. We chose Wirecast because of its ease-of-use, solid reputation, versatility and the expanded features of its latest version.”

Telestream recently released Wirecast version 5, a major upgrade for its Wirecast live streaming production software. Wirecast 5 adds enhanced encoding and playback options; a new, more efficient user interface (UI); high-quality screen capture; and more flexible input/output integrations for easier, high-quality live streaming.

“Wirecast is a perfect fit for organizations such as Mobeon, which has a long history of delivering high profile webcasts with high production value,” said Filippa Hasselstrom, director of desktop product marketing at Telestream. “Wirecast combines powerful live production capabilities, live encoding, and the ability to stream and record to disk, in an easy-to-use, affordable software package.”

Mobeon will be using four stations to capture the sessions and keynotes from the conference. The main station will capture and stream the action using four live camera feeds, plus additional inputs via a laptop and a wireless camera feed. The HD stream will be live encoded with Wirecast Pro and sent to Ustream for online viewing utilizing the 1 Beyond StreamMachine and Matrox VS4 capture card. The other stations will also be capturing multiple live camera and laptop feeds and recording the content for on-demand viewing.
