Using Dante with Wirecast

Is it correct that when using "Dante Via" all 16 channels from the Audio Mapper are available as Dante transmitters?

  • We haven't tested this specifically but when properly set up I believe all 16 channels should show in the Mapper.

      CraigS Hi Craig
       

      Ok, on the input side it works. I have installed virtual sound cards on 2 laptops. I use it to play music or other sound. 

      I have ordered Dante out devices. I will report then here in the forum if it works.

     Wirecast may only support stereo out at this point. There have been requests for 16 channel out support though if that's what you want.

      CraigS No, I just want to send a single source to another location over the Dante network. For example, just the audio of a Rendezvous participant. So you could take this on track 3 and then send it over the Dante network (track 3 = Dante channel 5&6?).

      Jean-Pierre Kousz I think that may work.

  • Now the various Dante devices have arrived and I have been able to test the various things. Since my events often take place in very large rooms, the Ethernet network plays an important role for me!

    I could determine that the connection from Dante devices to Wirecast works very well (green).One laptop is connected to Wirecast 3 & 4 via a USB-Dante device, the other laptop is connected to Wirecast 1&2 via the virtual soundcard and both are mapped to track 2 via "Multitrack Input Mapper" (track 2 goes to the mixer).

    But in my opinion a "Multitrack output mapper" is missing, with which now the different signals can be sent back to another Dante output device (for example to the active boxes). 

    No signal can be picked up on any of the various Wirecast 1-16 transmitters (red).

    I would be glad if you could be checked once with an engineer.

     We've had feature requests to support something like this. Wirecast only sends stereo out. You may want to vote here. And, add your use case so the developers can follow the specific need. Investigating WIRE-14179 Vote here as well. Note other comments specific to Dante there.

      CraigS I saw that I voted for the two tickets a long time ago. The one ticket already has over 70 votes. It would be really great if that request was taken in hand.

      Jean-Pierre Kousz I suspect it will be part of a larger project given the work that the developers may undertake along with it.

  • Wirecast and audio is a story by itself. Dante is the de facto standard apart from XLR at venues and I really don't understand why there is no listen to the users. I requested improvements ages ago. Only as the Telestream internals needed a multi language streaming they realized that the world is bigger than the plate on the table in front of them.

    The race is up with the competition, others have done their homeworks.

      Yes, I'm also a bit surprised that Wirecast doesn't support important things. I just bought a Wirecast 420 with a 3-year license a few months ago. I would like to see some things very much:

      - better audio routing
      - Cuebi Tally Light (via WLan)
      - better color correction
      - zoom in and out of a scene
      - control of Wirecast via browser (selection of scenes)

      I always work on the events with my own network and wifi. Therefore the better support of network technologies would be very important to me.

      I have really considered switching to vMix though. There are also more possibilities with the audio output routing. My events are always hybrid, so the audio thing is really important.

      Jean-Pierre Kousz I do try to light fires on these issues. I've logged them all and brought them to the attention of the developers.

  • If you have paying customers I highly recommend a more stable solution than wirecast. Unexpected UI freezes costed me a few clients already. It never happend with the software you mentioned. And a big plus is that all the functions are available via API or controllers. It's really a difference.

    If I see what is possible with a stream deck and if I see how the wirecast implementations is using it, it is shocking in a bad way. You have display button and naturally expect to see a cam preview. That is so easy with the other vendor from down under.
