Telestream Integrates With Cloud-Based Production Studio make.tv
Telestream Wirecast now enables easier access to more interactive capabilities and decentralized production of live streams with make.tv’s collaborative live video production studio
Nevada City, Calif., February 19, 2014 –Telestream®, the developers of Wirecast live streaming production software, announced that make.tv, a cloud-based live video production studio is now an integrated drop-down destination within Wirecast. This integration lets users easily send streams to make.tv, which features interactive capabilities and a cloud-based production hub that allows teams to collaborate remotely in the production.
“We’re thrilled to be able to offer direct access to make.tv from Wirecast,” says Tom Prehn, Wirecast product manager at Telestream. “Wirecast’s pro production capabilities are a great addition for make.tv users. And the cloud-based design of make.tv adds exciting interactivity and collaboration options for Wirecast users.”
Wirecast’s live video feeds are transmitted directly to the make.tv Studio where the stream can be mixed with other incoming live streams, enhanced with on-screen graphics, effects, interactive capabilities and uploaded media. make.tv Studio’s cloud-based design enables teams from different locations to collaborate on the same production to optimize efficiency and control. The final live stream can be broadcast live to any RTMP-capable streaming server or destination such as YouTube Live or Ustream, or CDNs including Akamai or Limelight.
“Producing a low latency stream with multiple cameras and then adding other streams, viewer call-ins and other interactive features, is perfect for sports events, concerts and any type of setup with multiple camera inputs from local and remote sources,” adds make.tv CEO, Andreas Jacobi.

Wirecast is ideal for streaming or recording live internet shows, broadcasting breaking news and sports, streaming live concerts and games, transmitting church services, corporate meetings, lectures and more.
