When we launched Gameshow, we pledged to develop the best game broadcasting software available
Nevada City, Calif. (PRWEB) November 17, 2015
Telestream®, a leading provider of live streaming applications and video tools, today announced a free update to Gameshow, a software application designed to help gamecasters create professional quality streams with beautiful graphic templates, dynamic editing, live switching, and green screen technology. Launched just over a month ago at Twitchcon, the new version of Gameshow is available immediately from http://www.gameshow.net where users can also download a free 60-day trial version of the software. Gameshow v.1.1 features new transitions, GIF graphic support, widget enhancements, user-assignable hotkeys for instant Replay, drag-and-drop graphics and an improved game source selector, giving gamecasters more professional options for their stream, and a streamlined user experience.
"When we launched Gameshow, we pledged to develop the best game broadcasting software available and that we would listen to the feedback from our user community, partners and from our very active beta users. It was that feedback along with Gameshow’s rapid development process that has enabled us to release Version 1.1 six weeks after our initial announcement," said Barbara DeHart, VP of Desktop Business at Telestream.
Gameshow makes it easy for new broadcasters to create professional shows. With a few clicks, users can pick and customize game templates, insert graphics, add widgets and start streaming to Twitch or YouTube.
Broadcasters also have access to more advanced features such as interactive widgets that pull in and display data such as chat, followers, and donations. With Gameshow’s green screen, gamers can put themselves “inside the game”. Gameshow provides an unlimited number of shots (i.e. scenes) and layers giving broadcasters limitless creativity for building a stunning show. Show setups can be reused to convey a consistent personality and brand.
New features in version 1.1 include:
- New transition options: Added transitions for even more choices in cutting between shots/scenes
- GIF support: Allows gamers to use animated images to spice up their broadcast or insert advertising
- Hot keys for Replay: User-assignable hotkey buttons for instant Replay. These hotkeys are operational even if Gameshow does not have window focus
- Widget enhancements: Users can now choose to display their top donors with the new donor widget. Widgets may also include a scrolling option, allowing users to show a scrolling list of donors. Gameshow users can also create and share their own custom widgets on the Gameshow.net site.
- Drag-and-drop graphics: Dragging and dropping videos or images into the main shot area automatically creates a shot without taking focus away from gameplay
- Improved game source selector: Users can choose if the source screen is from the PC or from a console directly in the setup window making it easy to switch between inputs
- More flexibility on PC: Gameshow no longer requires users to run in “admin” mode
