Mogulus recently announced that you can now stream directly to the site thanks to the Telestream Wirecast webcasting production software. With the latest version of the software (trial available here) you can now stream live events directly to your Mogulus channel.
That’s pretty cool come to think of it. The streaming of live events directly to the web has been a hurdle that many publishers want to get over without losing an arm, leg and tall stack of cash. Mogulus has even set up a complete list of directions to get it up and running here. It’s a whopping four steps which means you shouldn’t lose hours to the configuration and setup process.
As I said you will need Telestream’s Wirecast 3.5, a live video production tool that allows Mac and PC users to create real-time or on-demand video broadcasts for the web.
Wirecast 3.5 adds the ability to stream live video using the Adobe Flash Platform. Wirecast 3.5 integration allows users to quickly and easily produce Flash videos and use Mogulus (and UStream) for live broadcasting over the internet to a global audience.
Telestream’s Wirecast webcasting production software is the affordable 21st century alternative to expensive television broadcast hardware. For less than $500, Wirecast users can quickly and easily capture live events and create professional video webcasts on computers or laptops for real-time web distribution from any location. All users need is a computer and an internet connection for broadcasting and viewing.
Wirecast is useful for a broad range of users and business needs, including broadcasting of live press or sports events, entertainment, university lectures, live business presentations, marketing or training and more. Wirecast makes it easy for anyone to share live experiences and build a global community.
When ready to go live, Ustream and Mogulus streaming services can be accessed directly from within the intuitive Wirecast 3.5 user interface. Mogulus offers two types of streaming services: Free (ad-supported) and Pro (white-label, no ads, pay per usage). Ustream offers a broadcast
platform, which includes a free (ad-supported) and its Watershed professional service (simple, no ads, pay per usage webcasts), encouraging user interaction to empower an engaging experience for everyone involved.
Additional version 3.5 features include full user control of broadcast parameters, such as being able to turn streams on and off independently of one other, the ability to automatically reconnect when a streaming server connection has been severed, and the ability to disable Wirecast to automatically load a device, such as a camera, microphone or capture card.
