Teradek's Sphere is a real-time monitoring and live streaming solution for multi-camera 360° productions. Compatible with any HDMI camera, Sphere accepts up to four camera output signals up to 1080p at 30 fps and stitches the video files together for live viewing on an iPad. Utilizing an iOS-based stitching engine, no separate PC is required to stitch together your footage, allowing for real-time monitoring in your choice of viewing modes—including rectilinear and panoramic—all while keeping your production mobile. The stitched video can then be simultaneously streamed directly to the web to any compatible 360° online video platform, including Wowza and YouTube.
In addition to its four HDMI inputs, Sphere also features four USB ports that offer an integrated power solution for GoPro cameras. Audio can be input from each HDMI camera, or a separate feed from an audio board can be brought in via a 3.5mm stereo analog audio input. To connect to the Internet, Sphere has a 10/100 Ethernet port. Should you need more than four camera for your 360° productions, a second 10/100 Ethernet port is provided, allowing you to daisy-chain a second Sphere to support up to 8 cameras. For power, Sphere features redundant 2-pin LEMO inputs, offering protection against power supply failures to keep your live stream active.
To get your 360° productions up-and-running, Sphere comes with a mounting bracket, 4-camera GoPro rig mount, 18" micro-HDMI to HDMI cable, Ethernet cable, and an AC power adapter. A hardshell case is also provided to protect your Sphere when not in use.
Live Monitoring & Streaming Solutions of HDMI Cameras
Sphere is a 4-camera 360° rig monitoring and streaming solution that features four full-sized HDMI inputs. Its four USB ports offer an integrated power solution for GoPro rigs, and its stereo analog audio input allows you to embed the output of your soundboard right into the live feed.
Wireless and Internet Connectivity
Sphere connects to wireless access points and the Internet via a 10/100 Ethernet jack. To enhance the wireless range of your Sphere stream, Teradek recommends connecting the device to a Ubiquiti access point for a robust Wi-Fi signal up to several thousand feet.
Support for up to 8 Cameras
Should you need more than four cameras for your 360° production, a second Sphere can be daisy-chained using the device's 10/100 Ethernet port, extending the number of supported cameras to eight.
Redundant Power Inputs
Dual 2-pin LEMO power inputs are provided, offering redundancy in case one supply should fail.
Sphere iOS App
Sphere's stitching engine is iOS based and offers real-time compositing of up to eight 1080p camera feeds, allowing you and your crew to be more mobile than ever before.
Real-Time 360° Monitoring Modes
Allows you to explore your live 360° content as if you were wearing a VR headset. Move the iPad around you to visualize the experience you are creating for your audience.
Displays your 360° live footage as a single panoramic image.
Little Planet mode turns your 360° video into a stereographic projection, allowing you to view it as if it were a 360° orb, or a "little planet."
Once you've connected your cameras to Sphere, the device compresses each feed using the H.264 codec and outputs the stream over its 10/100 Ethernet jack to a wireless access point of your choice. Sphere can stream to any 360° compatible online video platform, including YouTube and Wowza, at bit rates up to 15 Mbps.
Stitching Configuration Options
The Sphere iOS application offers numerous parameters for tweaking your 360° footage to your liking. In addition to multiple lens correction options, you can adjust the image rotation and edge alignment of your stitch from the app's intuitive UI.
Color Calibration Settings
Users can calibrate each camera's white balance, tint, and color profile right from the Sphere application. If you need a quick calibration, the application can color match across all video feeds at the same time to provide a balanced image instantly.
Save individual 360° snapshots and your stitched video footage directly to your iPad's hard drive in MP4 format.
