Miglia and Vara Lead The Way For Webcasts on the MacAlchemyTV card now fully supports Wirecast webcasting tool (December 09, 2004)
Miglia Technology, a global technology solution provider that manufactures, markets and supports a range of own and licensed branded products, has today announced its AlchemyTV card now fully supports Wirecast, a webcasting tool from Vara Software.
Wirecast makes it easy to create dynamic webcasts and also build detailed multimedia broadcasts with many web cameras, images, titles and movies.
Eric Ferraz, product marketing director, Miglia Technology, commented: ?We are pleased to be working with Vara Software as it again expands the range of applications for the already extremely successful AlchemyTV card. A single or multiple AlchemyTV cards can be used to feed analogue to Vara Softwares Wirecast application, thus enabling customers to create very advanced internet webcasting setups.
Paul Carnine, Vara Software, commented: ?Wirecast maximises the potential of multiple AlchemyTV cards in a single system by introducing the unique concept of shots. You can package up your selected cameras, graphical overlays, movies and titles into a shot. Once you have built your list of shots, you can transition the broadcast between them with a single mouse click.
Controlling your broadcast in real-time is easy. With Wirecast's multiple layer support, it's simple to place a background music track over your webcast, while changing between the cameras you want your viewers to see.
Wirecast uses the QuickTime Streaming architecture for its broadcasting over the internet or a LAN. This enabled a seamless integration with AlchemyTV, as the cards driver is QuickTime based.
