Easily record all original video feeds (ISO recording)

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.

Green Screen, Virtual Sets and more

Up to 35 layers on screen simultaneously

In addition to your live video sources, Wirecast makes it easy to mix your live feed with pre-recorded video clips, titles and graphics. Switch and mix at will, compositing up to 35 layers on screen simultaneously.
