Teradek Cube video streaming device

Teradek Cube™ - lightweight portable wireless HD video streaming

The Cube™ Family are the world's first camera-top streaming HD video devices. The family includes six encoder models and two matching form-factor decoders. The Cube™ Encoder streams HD video over WiFi or wired Ethernet,  can create its own wireless (ad hoc) network, over which it streams HD video directly to a Cube™ Decoder, a computer or laptop, a server, or a mobile device such as an iPad with no other networking equipment required. To extended your broadcast range, Cube™ Encoder can join an infrastructure network by using a wireless router and stream over a LAN or WAN. Experienced network users can use Cube™ to stream video over the Internet, or to video mixing applications like VidBlaster. Cube™ Encoders and Decoders can be purchased in pairs that factory default to a point-to-point (ad hoc) WiFi connection. Together they provide an end-to-end streaming video solution for filmmaking, news gathering, and ProAV.

Cube™ Decoders

The Cube™ Decoder is a small, extremely low-power video decoder that pairs ideally with the Teradek Cube™ Encoder. They are designed for placement on small handheld monitors and large HD displays and feature either HDMI or HD-SDI output. Using a Cube™ Decoder eliminates the need for using a PC to receive and decode video.

Cubelets™ Encoder/Decoder Pair

Cube™ Encoder/Decoder pairing is the ideal solution for turnkey on-set video monitoring. Use the Cube™ Encoder to stream HD video over WiFi, then connect the Cube™ Decoder to a small hand-held monitor or a professional field monitor to receive the signal and view video up to 1080p24. Cube decoders are available in both HDMI and HD-SDI versions.

For news gathering the Encoder/Decoder pair allows broadcasters to disconnect from the ENG vehicle, eliminating the need for long cable runs, giving the advantage of freedom of movement to the journalist and cameraman for capturing the critical action.

Advanced Compression

Cube uses H.264 High Profile (Level 4.1) video compression, which is the most advanced compression algorithm in the world today, and it features a built-in scaler to convert from 1080 to 720, 480 or 240 resolutions. Users can choose a resolution and target bit rate based on the availability of IP bandwidth. Typical bit rates for HD are between 2-4Mbps, and SD bit rates are typically sub-1Mbps. Cube's end-to-end latency is approximately 1/8-1/2 second.*

Small Size

Cube is tiny (about the size of a pack of cards), uses only 2.5W of DC power, weighs about 200g, and mounts easily to a rail system, cage, hotshoe, or camera baseplate. Cube's line-of-sight WiFi range is approximately 300 feet when used with a high quality WiFi access point. Cube has been tested extensively with RED ONE**, Arri Alexa, Panavision Genesis, Canon 5Dii, Canon 7D, various handi-cams and more.

*Latency measured by independent third party testers. iPad's native video decoder adds approximately 10 seconds of latency. An RTP solution for iPad will be available shortly to eliminate the latency issue.

**Cube is not compatible with RED ONE's HDMI output as its output is non-standard. Cube works beautifully with RED ONE's HD-SDI output.

What we're about . . .      ZEN is not a traditional Audio-Visual dealer who started selling computers, nor is it a computer shop that also sells video products. You won't get any salesmen giving you the "hard-sell" when you call, just straightforward advice and information - which for some callers is the knowledge that they don't need to buy whatever it is they thought they needed! Above all you'll be dealing with someone with a wide range of experience and knowledge of both PCs and video production. We're not the biggest, nor necessarily the cheapest, but we are one of the longest established computer/video specialists in the UK.

Company history . . .      ZEN was started in the 1980s by Martin Kay, then working for ITV at Granada's Manchester studios, who built his first 6502-based computer in 1979 from an Ohio Scientific kit, bought in the USA whilst working as a Sound Recordist on a film shoot for World In Action. With the advent of the Amiga, which could be gen-locked to a video source, Martin started writing a variety of video-related software. This included subtitling & tele-prompting, ident clocks, scoring software for sports & gameshows, and specialist software to mimic other computer displays for use in TV film dramas like Cracker, Prime Suspect and A Touch of Frost. Martin left Granada in 1993 to concentrate on his computer-video activities with ZEN, following a natural path into non-linear editing systems, for many years the main business activity, although he still maintains an active interest in video production.
