Subject:   [GlobalRevolutionMedia] Re: Livestream vs Wirecast vs Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder
 

Affordable switcher alternative to Tricaster would be Blackmagic's

ATEM series

http://www.blackmagic-design.com/products/atemtelevisionstudio/

You can run it with switcher software and eventually upgrade to

hardware switcher

http://www.blackmagic-design.com/products/atem/

 

It actually integrates will with Telestream Wirecast as well as Adobe

FMLE using a Blackmagic Decklink video card

http://www.blackmagic-design.com/products/decklink/

 

That would give you various configuration and encoder options

depending on the situation
