How to upgrade to Wirecast 5

Watch Video

Wirecast 5 is a paid upgrade and includes enhanced encoding and playback,
a redesigned user interface, improved local screen capture and more integrations.

Enhanced encoding and playback

x264 encoding

You now have the choice to use x264 to live encode your stream. x264 offers high quality encoding with lower bitrates, making it one of the best low-latency video streaming formats in the world.

Stream Delay

With support for stream delay in Flash, now you can delay your streamed broadcasts to add a buffer between your live stream and broadcast. Gamers: perfect for delaying your stream to hide your strategy from online competitors.

Improved H.264 playback

Now you get even smoother playback of your pre-recorded H.264 videos in Wirecast.

Efficiently, redesigned user interface

Redesigned Shot List

Now you can see all your Master Layers at once in the easy-to-manage Shot List area. Easily resize the height of your layers to save space, and even drag-and-drop shots between layers.

Intuitive Broadcast Settings workflow

Same settings, now even simpler to use. Just choose where you want to stream live, then configure your settings in the newly redesigned broadcast settings dialog box.

Live Preview Swap

Easily switch back and forth between two shots with a click of the Live Preview Swap button.

More powerful screen capture

Capture multiple windows on the same computer

Wirecast 5 lets you broadcast multiple application windows from the same computer efficiently and smoothly.

Full HD 60 frames per second capture

Blackmagic Design
