The Teradek Cube 205/405 1-Channel HDMI Encoder/Decoder Pair includes a Cube 205 HDMI encoder and a Cube 405 HDMI decoder. This pair is called a Cubelet and is capable of very low latency (approximately 3 to 4 frames). The Cubelet provides an easy-to-use, point-to-point streaming solution. Both these units are paired and automatically connect with one another over an ad-hoc or Wi-Fi network.
The Cube 205/405 bundle offers an HDMI input/HDMI output and features a hardened aluminum chassis, low power consumption, and a variety of network connectivity options (RJ-45 Ethernet, dual-band Wi-Fi, and USB port for 3G/4G modems). This bundle provides a high-definition, end-to-end streaming video solution that eliminates the need for PC-based decoding. This bundle is particularly useful for news gathering or live event streaming.
Both Cube 205 encoder and Cube 405 decoder include an OLED that enables users to change and review the settings of their unit, in addition to providing real-time feedback for filenames, recording status, and wireless connectivity.
The Cube 205 includes comprehensive transport protocol support like RTP/RTSP/RTMP/MPEG-TS. This Cube 205 comes with a headphone output for immediate audio monitoring and a micro USB port that charges the internal battery. This encoder supports dozens of content delivery networks (CDNs), including Ustream, Justin.tv, Livestream, and Youtube Live.
The Cube 405 HDMI is a video decoder that outputs high-definition video via HDMI for use with video switchers and professional monitors. This device decodes IP video from Teradek encoders via Ethernet and comes with hardware refinements to increase ease of use and versatility.
Note: Cube 205 and Cube 405 do not include an internal Li-Ion battery.
