Teradek have announced the Cube Pro, the latest addition to the award-winning family of Cube encoders.
Cube Pro is a camera back H.264 encoder with built in 2.4/5GHz WiFi, Ethernet, and 3G/4G/LTE modem support. Its modular design allows V- or AB Gold-mount power and mounting options to provide the most demanding camera operators with a versatile wireless HD video system that can be tailored to any type of production.
The Cube Pro offers a number of significant enhancements over current Cube models as a result of its two new co-processors, which allow for higher bit rate encoding for broadcasts or proxy recording, as well as lower latency streaming, and HD monitoring on as many as 5 iOS devices simultaneously. Cube Pro can also utilize Teradek’s latest mobile software solutions including TeraView(TM), which allows users to monitor up to 4 video feeds simultaneously on one iPad.
“Being the world’s most popular camera mount encoder for several years now has helped the Cube family evolve into much more than just the ‘world’s smallest encoder,'” said Nicol Verheem, founder and CEO of Teradek. “It has gained a slew of professional features over time, allowing it to address even the most demanding applications. With Cube Pro’s latest improvements like 15Mbps high profile H.264 compression, ultra lower latency, and the new power and packaging options, we are completing its evolution into an enterprise H.264 transmission platform, while keeping it the most cost effective choice available.”
Like Teradek’s other Cube encoders, Cube Pro can stream via a variety of industry standard transport protocols like MPEG-TS, RTMP, RTSP, UDP Multicast, as well as proprietary protocols optimized for low latency. The device supports Close Captioning and includes an HD-SDI input and loop, analog audio in/out, an SD card for on-board proxy recording, and an OLED display for changing settings on the fly. An internal Li-Ion battery has also been added to ensure the unit does not power down during external battery swaps.
