Teradek, LLC - Wireless HD Video

Teradek Cube and Cube Pro encoders provide a powerful, compact wireless solution for local monitoring and proxy recording. Both devices utilize high profile H.264 compression and support resolutions up to 1080p over 2.4/5Ghz WiFi, Ethernet, and 3G/4G/LTE cellular networks via a USB modem. The Teradek Cube comes in HD-SDI or HDMI varieties, whereas the camera-back Cube Pro offers an HD-SDI input in V- or AB Gold-mount versions. Each encoder has an easy to use OLED display for rapid configuration and a rechargeable Li-Ion battery, which enables users to swap external power sources without powering the unit down.

Local Monitoring on iOS Devices

Watch your live video while you’re on the move. With the Teradek Cube and Cube Pro, directors, clients, and others on set are able to monitor every live shot on their iPad, iPhone, and laptop with a delay as low as 4 frames. Simply connect your device directly to a Teradek encoder over the 5.8Ghz Master Mode or to a shared access point, launch Teradek’s free TeraCentral application, and select the live feed you wish to view.

TeraView for iOS

The new TeraView application for iOS allows you to monitor up to 4 live video feeds right on your iPad. Simply connect your iPad and Cube encoders to your local access point*, launch the TeraView application, and begin reviewing your real-time footage.**

Remote Monitoring

Cube and Cube Pro also support remote monitoring for productions that have multiple sets. For example, a Cube on Set A can transmit over the Internet to a decoder at Set B where the director can view the feed at near real time. This is also a fantastic option for writers and producers to keep an eye on production from their office.

On-Board and Remote Proxy Recording Over RTP/RTSP

Not only can you watch the action unfold in real time on your iOS device, Teradek encoders also offer free proxy recording capabilities on both HD-SDI and HDMI models for generating instant replays or dailies. Cube and Cube Pro encoders sense when your camera begins and ends recording and instantly creates an H.264 file with identical timecode, filename, and start/stop times on a computer connected to your local network.* Alternatively, both encoders can save proxy files on their on-board uSD and SD card slots and support NFS storage.

Choose Your Destination

Teradek encoders can be paired with Cube decoders for low latency, high definition point to point streaming for use with video switchers, IMAG setups, or monitors at video village. Cubelets, as these pairs are called, are multicast compatible, require very little power, and include a hardware-based deinterlacer. Teradek Cubelets send and receive video via a shared access point over WiFi, directly through Master Mode, or over the Internet using transport protocols such as RTSP and MPEG-TS. With the addition of a Zixi license, Cube and Cube Pro encoders can stream using Zixi cloud services to a Teradek H.264 decoder to achieve flawless broadcast quality video without regard for distance or network congestion. 

While streaming to a decoder, you can utilize Teradek’s encoders’ features simultaneously such as monitoring the feed on your iOS device and saving proxies to the on-board SD card.

 

Wowza Integration

Wowza Media Systems reduces the complexities of video and audio delivery with customizable software for organizations to build, deploy, and manage high-quality live and on-demand streaming solutions. Wowza and Teradek partner to provide deeper integration of their market leading media engine and encoding products to make the end-to-end streaming more efficient for our joint customers and creating a better user experience for end viewers.

Zixi: Flawless Broadcast Quality

With a Zixi-licensed Cube or Cube Pro encoder, camera crew can stream wirelessly to an Ethernet-connected Link and then to Zixi's cloud services for highly reliable, broadcast-quality video over volatile networks.

AnyStreaming Platform. Anytime. Anywhere.

Teradek Cube Pro and Cube encoders offer everything needed to stream live high definition video directly to the Web. Both devices provide comprehensive protocol support for RTP, RTSP, RTMP, MPEG-TS, and HLS, which allows you to broadcast directly to your personal website, your Facebook page, or any content delivery network (CDN); e.g. Akamai, Livestream.com, or Ustream.tv. You can also choose from three capable streaming interfaces including 2.4/5Ghz MIMO WiFi, Ethernet, or a 3G/4G/LTE USB modem. This versatility ensures that you are never stuck without connectivity wherever you need to go live.

 

NewTek TriCaster and Telestream Wirecast Integration

Live event broadcasting just got easier. Teradek's new Stream Reader plugin for Wirecast and TriCaster allows Cube, Cube Pro, and Bond users to import live HD video directly into Telestream's or NewTek's software platform. 

Stream Reader is a powerful tool for live productions that use local or remote IP video feeds. This means that Teradek users can pull low latency HD video into Wirecast or TriCaster directly from their encoder or a Sputnik Server.
