Wirecast is a great way to create video podcasts in one shot. I love using Wirecast for shows because I can insert graphics as I go, along with lower 3rds, side-by-side video for one-on-one interviews and much more.

With Wirecast, all you need is a computer and one webcam, or a computer with multiple webcams and a USB mic, or two computers and 3 mics. OK – I guess you can use it in multiple configurations.

Wirecast also lets you record to your computer while you live stream to multiple services. Ustream, Livestream or use UDP to send to a custom source. You can record and stream in VGA, 480i, 720p, 1080p or whatever your resolution and bitrate the computer can allow.

Wirecast is one program in a series of consumer and professional software and hardware. But the best part is with Wirecast you can record anywhere your computer can allow.
