|Subject:||[GlobalRevolutionMedia] Re: Livestream vs Wirecast vs Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder|
Saturday works for me! Lets do it - how is 1 pm? or noon?
The tricaster is limited but its studio use only as i see it. not
mobile. we can mix both remote wirecast streams and studio streams -
Tricaster can send signal to any system - i've used it with
Livestream, Ustream, and a few others. the mobile media unit should be
either entirely camera broadcast based (terradecks) or with a laptop
assist on site, using whatever app best works to stream.
the best app has to:
- be CPU/mem light on load
- easy to use - relatively, considering most users should be somewhat
- have a reliable secondary option - escalation path - livestream
fails, then wirecast, then FMLE...etc.
