Live streaming and production software provider Telestream has announced Version 7.5 of its core Wirecast platform, which now has additional social media support.

periscopeThe platform acts as a live stream feeder to social media networks like YouTube and Facebook. To bolster this, Telestream has announced Wirecast support for the Periscope/Twitter API. This means that any user, from tech-savvy consumers to online broadcasters, can employ Wirecast to stream live full motion video to Periscope.tv, which will appear natively within their Twitter feeds.

Telestream believes that the combination of Wirecast and Periscope/Twitter will appeal to a range of markets, especially online broadcasters that want to leverage Twitter feeds for live video.

“We anticipate that news and celebrity and influencer posts will be popular applications of this technology mix,” said Scott Murray, VP of desktop products at Telestream. “With Periscope/Twitter added as a native destination within Wirecast, users have the means to add rich, professional production values to live video streams on Twitter – something that we’re confident will win more eyeballs and bring users more followers.”

He added: “Today, Telestream is the only company that has succeeded in enabling users to take content from the broadest range of sources – from mobile devices, to multi-camera productions and real-time feeds – to produce and deliver live video content and streaming media easily and cost-effectively over the widest range of social networks and other destinations. After many years’ investment, we are leading this market and we intend to build on our strength and success.”
