Using Wireless

I've never tried wireless streaming with my Gear equipment (or any other of my streaming computers).

I'm considering streaming some softball games this spring. I see the Gear 110 has 2 connectors for wireless, but there weren't any type of antennae that came with my system (a demo unit).

What type of wireless equipment would you recommend that would allow me to stream at 720p?

  • Wirecast Gear comes with an accessory pack that includes Wifi Antennas. You'd need to connect the Antenna to the wifi jacks. Please contact your dealer to make sure they give you the antennas.

     

    Ideally you should set up a private wifi network that doesn't share bandwidth with the public. You'd want bandwidth to be double your encoder setting so a minimum of 4Mbps up for a 2Mbps 720p encoder would be good. Reliability of the connection is also important so you'd want to check for signal strength and packet loss.

  • I doubt the dealer still has the antennae. There are 2 connectors on the back of the 110. Do I need to order 2 antennae? Any recommendations on what spec to get?

    You can submit a support request to us and we may make a suggestion though.

  • Fortunately, I was able to find the original antennae in a separate box. Will test it out on the playing field later this week.

  • Jerel Peterson That's great to hear. Keep in mind the importance of avoiding public wifi especially at a sporting event where fans may be using it as well, limiting overall available bandwidth. Results may be different when testing in an empty stadium vs one filed with fans using social media during the game. Even LTE cell towers can be taxed sometimes.
