New! Animated Title Library: An integrated lower third and full-screen title library with animations. The library is free and customizable, and what's even better is that everything is done within the Wirecast app to save you time and remove the need to purchase additional 3rd party software.
Watch a short video about the Wirecast Animated Title Library.
New! Media Playback controls: Now, you can control the playback of media clips even when they are live. You can play, pause, and scrub through videos so you can add live commentary or review content as part of your broadcast.
New! Secondary Display Live Output Audio mapping: More flexibility to route specific audio tracks when sending a program out via a Secondary Display.
Also, we continue to upgrade our integrations and technology, including an update to NDI® 5, the Facebook API (v10) and WebRTC (to 4430, which is used by Rendezvous).

Minimum Required Upload Speed
It is recommended that an upload speed rate of at least double the selected video bitrate be available, especially for a total target bit-rate of 10Mbps (Megabits per second) or less, or when there are multiple outgoing streams.
Upload speed can be tested at a website such as TestMy.net/upload.
Additional tasks that can consume upload bandwidth on the network should also be considered when determining how much of the available upload bandwidth can be allocated towards streaming
Wirecast Rendezvous uses WebRTC technology that can be very resource intensive. For the best experience, we suggest considering the following table when choosing hardware:
|Bandwidth4||Add 4 Mbps||Add 5+ Mbps5|
|Processor4||i5 quad-core6||i7 quad-core6|
Solid State Drive or fast RAID array recommended for ISO Recording and Replay functionality.
Actual data rates will vary depending on quality level selected for ProRes (Mac) or MJPEG recording (Windows), as well as the resolution and frame rate selected.
For Mac ProRes recording please refer to Apples ProRes data rate specifications.
Windows MJPEG Best Quality Guidelines (Megabytes per second):
1080i and 1080p 29.97 and 30 FPS, MJPEG Best Quality ~25MB/sec
1080p 60 FPS, MJPEG Best Quality ~50 MB/sec
720p 59.94 and 60 FPS, MJPEG Best Quality ~20 MB/sec
Total expected data rate should be compared to available disk write speed to ensure adequate disk throughput.
Failure to ensure the available disk write speed is greater than the highest expected total data rate may result in frames being dropped from recordings (ISO, Replay, and Record-to-Disk).
Hardware accelerated encoding requirements:
Intel Quick Sync Video encoding requires an Intel CPU with an Intel QuickSync Video core.
List of Intel CPUs supporting QuickSync
NVIDIA NVENC encoding requires an NVidia GPU with Kepler architecture or newer.
NVIDIA only maintains a general list of supported GPUs
Apple Hardware Accelerated H.264 encoding requires a Mac with an integrated Intel GPU*.
*This may change in the future, as the Apple API decides what hardware acceleration method is to be used. At the time of this writing, only Quick Sync via an Intel GPU is supported.
High frame-rate streaming (60fps):
High frame-rate streaming will result in increased CPU usage and require a higher bit rate (4Mbps or higher) for a quality encode.
Simply switching to a higher frame-rate without ensuring the CPU and bitrate are sufficient may result in a lower quality encode.
Consider lowering your canvas frame rate and/or streaming resolution to lower CPU usage.
Maintained system CPU usage greater than 60% will increase the likelihood of dropped frames.
