Minimum Required Upload Speed
It is recommended that an upload speed rate of at least double theselected video bitrate be available, especially for a total target bit-rate of10Mbps (Megabits per second) or less, or when there are multiple outgoingstreams.
Upload speed can be tested at a website such as TestMy.net/upload.
Additional tasks that can consume upload bandwidth on the networkshould also be considered when determining how much of the available uploadbandwidth can be allocated towards streaming
Wirecast Rendezvous uses WebRTC technology that can be very resourceintensive. For the best experience, we suggest considering the following tablewhen choosing hardware:
Solid State Drive or fast RAID array recommended for ISO Recording andReplay functionality.
Actual data rates will vary depending on quality level selected forProRes (Mac) or MJPEG recording (Windows), as well as the resolution and framerate selected.
For Mac ProRes recording please refer to Apples ProRes data ratespecifications.
Windows MJPEG Best Quality Guidelines (Megabytes per second):
1080i and 1080p 29.97 and 30 FPS, MJPEG Best Quality ~25MB/sec
1080p 60 FPS, MJPEG Best Quality ~50 MB/sec
720p 59.94 and 60 FPS, MJPEG Best Quality ~20 MB/sec
Total expected data rate should be compared to available disk writespeed to ensure adequate disk throughput.
Failure to ensure the available disk write speed is greater than thehighest expected total data rate may result in frames being dropped fromrecordings (ISO, Replay, and Record-to-Disk).
Hardware accelerated encodingrequirements:
Intel Quick Sync Video encoding requires an Intel CPU with an IntelQuickSync Video core.
List of Intel CPUs supporting QuickSync
NVIDIA NVENC encoding requires an NVidia GPU with Kepler architectureor newer.
NVIDIA only maintains a general list of supported GPUs
Apple Hardware Accelerated H.264 encoding requires a Mac with anintegrated Intel GPU*.
*This may change in the future, as the Apple API decides what hardwareacceleration method is to be used. At the time of this writing, only Quick Syncvia an Intel GPU is supported.
High frame-rate streaming (60fps):
High frame-rate streaming will result in increased CPU usage andrequire a higher bit rate (4Mbps or higher) for a quality encode.
Simply switching to a higher frame-rate without ensuring the CPU andbitrate are sufficient may result in a lower quality encode.
Consider lowering your canvas frame rate and/or streaming resolution tolower CPU usage.
Maintained system CPU usage greater than 60% will increase thelikelihood of dropped frames.
