January 17, 2013 --
"Wirecast has stood up to everything we have asked of it, and I am pleased with its consistent performance throughout the 2012 season," said Wez Maynard, brand and marketing services manager at OC Sport. "In Rio, we experienced some of our best racing since the series began over five years ago, and Wirecast allowed us to stream for the first time in high-definition 720p video."
The Act 8 sailing finale was the culmination of eleven months of global touring to major cities for the eight Extreme 40 sailing teams. OC Sport has helped bring these events to worldwide audiences since the series inception in 2007. This past year, Maynard wanted to expand coverage by adding live webcasts so that fans could access the events on their computers, tablets, and mobile phones.
"The needs of OC Sport highlight Wirecast's ability to reliably deliver broadcast quality video in a variety of compression formats to multiple online destinations and devices," said Barbara DeHart, vice president of marketing at Telestream. "We're honored that Wirecast travelled to Rio de Janeiro, a city with a rich sports heritage and passionate following of sports fans.
