How to Stream from Wirecast to the BoxCast Platform

Using BoxCast’s RTMP video ingestion option, simply select BoxCast as a streaming destination right from within Wirecast. This allows Wirecast to stream directly to BoxCast. It will utilize the computer for encoding the video and audio, and it will transmit over RTMP.

This can be used with either a Single-Use RTMP or Static RTMP Channel. However in both cases, the setup must be done within 10 minutes of a scheduled broadcast.

Another way to stream from Wirecast is to send the Wirecast program output to a secondary HDMI or SDI output that is plugged into the BoxCaster or BoxCaster Pro. The BoxCaster’s hardware encoding relieves your computer from the task of encoding the video and audio in addition to taking advantage of specially-designed communication protocols to optimize your available network connectivity.

BoxCast integration with Telestream Wirecast is available immediately.
