From Streaming on a Boat, to a Live ESPN3 Broadcast – The Flexibility of Wirecast

Editor’s note: We are giddy to present another guest blog from Imry Halevi, who currently serves as the Director of Multimedia & Production at Harvard University. Imry has worked directly with Stretch in the past when he served in a similar capacity at Northeastern University, and he is truly one of the best in the business. Though Harvard is not currently an active Stretch Internet client, Imry has continued to be a tremendous resource and has stayed active with the Stretch community. If you haven’t read his previous guest posts, do yourself a favor and check them out here

In his post below, Imry walks us through the variety of ways they utilize Wirecast as part of their current broadcasting workflow. Wirecast is a powerful encoding software that many current Stretch clients utilize and there’s some great stuff here. Please keep in mind that while the equipment outlined below may work for your environment, we always want to chat with clients before they make any purchases. That is to say, nothing below should be considered an official recommendation. There are a variety of factors that our Operations Department will take into consideration when helping clients choose the equipment that is appropriate for their environment, so please contact us anytime with questions.

With that caveat, take it away, Imry…
