The Teradek Cube 250/450 HDMI Encoder/Decoder is equipped with an HDMI input/output, dual band WiFi, and an external USB port, and is suitable for turnkey (ready for immediate use) on-set video monitoring. You can stream HD video over WiFi and then receive the video signal (up to 1080p24) on a small handheld monitor or a professional field monitor connected to the Cube decoder. In addition, it features line-of-sight (waves traveling straight line) WiFi range up to 300’ (91 m).
Featuring the setup wizard, the Cube 250/450 HDMI Encoder/Decoder web interface simplifies configuration. You can create a network, log on to Cube's web interface, complete the setup wizard, and start streaming video after connecting video to the Cube system. It features H.264 High Profile (level 4.1) video compression to offer high video quality at lower bit rates.
Downscaling to lower resolutions is possible via a built-in scaler that allows for output streaming resolutions of 1080p/PsF, 1080i, 720p, and 480p. Based on available IP bandwidth, you can choose target bit rates (HD - 2 to 4Mbps, SD – sub-1Mbps) and a video resolution as required. The Cube encoder/decoder offers end-to-end latency (time delay) of 1/8-1/2 second.
With small size and compact design, the Cube 250/450 HDMI Encoder/Decoder can be mounted to a rail system, cage, hotshoe, or camera baseplate. In addition, the encoder/decoder can be used with camera systems such as Red One, Arri Alexa, Panavision Genesis, Canon 5Dii, and Canon 7D. The Cube encoder/decoder requires 2.5 W DC power.
