Record all your video feeds for post-event editing or future archiving. Matrox VS4 sends your video feeds to Wirecast for live production and streaming and allows you to simultaneously record all your original video feeds to disk (Matrox MPEG 2 I-Frame codec at up to 300 Mb/s in HD). Plus, now you can capture to DV, DVCam, DVCPro, and DVCPro HD all in a .mov wrapper, so that you can use any nonlinear editor, e.g. Apple, Avid or Adobe, Mac or PC.
After your live event, all the high-quality original material is available for creating trailers, promo packages, VOD content and new projects.
Wirecast lets users stream in both SD and HD (1080p) to live streaming services or your own internal streaming server.
Stream to multiple destinations and bitrates with just a few clicks.
Record your output to disc
Wirecast also lets you save your production to disc for future archiving or on-demand distribution.
Virtual Camera Out (Windows only)
Wirecast output can also be picked up as a camera source in other devices or software such as Skype, Google Hangouts and GoToMeeting.
