The Teradek Cube-100 1 Channel HD-SDI Encoder is a camera-top, HD video encoder which is ideally suited for on-set video monitoring as well as full-scale film production. Eliminating the complexity of VTR (Video Tape Recorder) rigs and camera tethering for long dolly moves as well as running footage, the Cube-100 offers a lightweight (0.43 lb / 0.19 kg), compact (2.5 x 3.5 x 0.9"), and low power (2.5W) HD-SDI video encoding solution.
You can use the Cube-100 for input resolutions of 1080p/PsF, 1080i, and 720p. Downscaling to lower resolutions is possible via a built-in scaler that allows output streaming resolutions of 1080p/PsF, 1080i, 720p, and 480p. You can achieve Blu-ray output video quality and H.264 High Profile Level 4.1 video compression at bit rates of 250 Kbps to 10 Mbps. The Cube-100 typically exhibits a latency of 1/8-1/2 second.
You are provided with a 1/8" Stereo TRS Line Level input and embedded stereo capabilities for HD-SDI. Also integrated into the Cube-100 are AAC-LC and MPEG Layer 2 Audio compression standards.
Direct streaming to decoding devices such as a laptop or iPad is offered via the ad-hoc networking mode which eliminated the need for any other intermediary equipment. 10/100BaseT Ethernet based network distribution (LAN/WAN/Internet) of the Cube-100's IP video stream is provided via the infrastructure network mode that supports TCP/IP, UDP, HTTP, DHCP, NTP, SSL, IGMP protocols.
You can easily configure and control the Cube via a feature-rich UI. Rail system, cage, hotshoe, or camera baseplate mounting options are available for use with the encoder. You can use the Cube-100 with RED ONE, Arri Alexa, Panavision Genesis, Canon 5Dii, Canon 7D, and other handycams.
