How to Stream from Wirecast to BoxCast

Using BoxCast's RTMP video ingestion option, you can select BoxCast as a streaming destination right from within Wirecast. This allows Wirecast to stream directly to BoxCast. It will utilize the computer for encoding the video and audio, and it will transmit over RTMP. 

Note: This can be used with either a Single-Use RTMP or Static RTMP Channel. However in both cases, the setup must be done within 10 minutes of a scheduled broadcast.

Another way to stream from Wirecast is to send the Wirecast to a secondary HDMI output that is plugged into the BoxCaster. The BoxCaster's hardware encoding relieves your computer from the task of encoding the video and audio in addition to taking advantage of specially-designed communication protocols to optimize your available network connectivity.
