Telestream has launched Wirecast Go, a mobile live streaming application that converts an iPhone into a live broadcast studio.

ipHoneAvailable for download from the Apple App store the app lets users share their experience in a professional-looking production directly to YouTube or other outlet, whether they are watching a live concert, or participating in a spontaneous flash mob.

Building on Telestream’s experience in live streaming with Wirecast, its streaming production software, Wirecast Go is aimed at both professional and amateur iPhone users who want to broadcast breaking news and live events. Wirecast Go offers live video streaming to multiple destinations, along with the ability to brand streams, add a range of graphics, and edit shots.

Wirecast Go is available in two versions. The standard version is free and enables unlimited live streaming to YouTube from an iPhone. It allows insertion of images, logos and graphics from a user's photo library; social chat and sharing; and the ability to save two shots in a shot list. The premium features of Wirecast Go can be unlocked for $5.99. These enable live streaming to any Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP) destination, as well as private or unlisted broadcasts on YouTube.

Users can also switch between unlimited numbers of shots, and capture and replay highlights from the live production with just a few taps on the iPhone, which is great for sports and other live events.
“Wirecast Go offers a level of professional production that other consumer mobile streaming apps don’t offer,” said Barbara DeHart, VP, Desktop Business, Telestream. “With the hunger for instant knowledge ever increasing, Wirecast Go fills a huge need for those who want to deliver professional live streams to the world from their iPhone.”
