Wirecast Gear is an extremely portable computer workstation designed to run Wirecast Pro for live event production and streaming. It is ideally suited for marketers, educators, corporate and online trainers, event producers, sports broadcasters, worship service staff, news gatherers and anyone who wants to deliver professional live streamed productions out of the box.

The NewBay Media Best of Show Awards recognize outstanding new products and were presented by TV Technology, the leading, US-based digital television authority and news source. A panel of engineers and industry experts evaluated Wirecast Gear and selected it for the Best of Show award based on innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry.

A versatile 1RU workstation, Wirecast Gear, which was launched late last year, comes complete with four HD-SDI or HDMI professional camera inputs and all the live streaming production features of Wirecast Pro, including over 30 convenient built-in destinations for industry-leading streaming services and platforms like Facebook Live, YouTube Live, Microsoft Azure, Akamai, DaCast, Wowza, and more.

With customers ranging from professional sports teams, to houses of worship as well as traditional and new media broadcast stations, the product has found an important niche in the live streaming marketplace.Wirecast Gear wins Best Of Show at NAB 2017
