It's great and we're thankful for what it allows us to do.

We were able to begin live streaming within a week of purchasing the software, which means it's intuitive.


I wish the interface was simpler and more user friendly. There are things that we've had to "figure out" that would be helpful to have quickly at our fingertips.

We have been very pleased with Wirecast and plan to continue using it for our Graduation Ceremonies and other like events at the College.


The think I like most about Wirecast is the interface it provides to stream live video across multiple platforms such as Facebook or YouTube. The preview screen is also most helpful when preparing to transition to the next shot.


The thing I like least about Wirecast is the amount of time it takes to get it setup correctly. However, once it has been setup, it is a fantastic tool.
