Teradek VidiU X Reviews

Doesn't Synch with Livestream

By Steven
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2022-01-19

As many know, Vimeo bought out Livestream some time back. The VidiU X does not synch with Livestream. It will synch with Vimeo, but not Livestream. I personally spoke with a Teradek tech support guy and he said there is no work around for this problem. The VidiU Go did not have this problem. So, unfortunately this must be returned because I still use Livestream as one of my streaming platforms and this product is not compatible.

Upgraded from Vidiu what an immense difference Boots very quickly, maybe 30 seconds if that HTML page is just there instantly No problem streaming to YouTube in 1080p60

Seems to have launched prematurely

Many advertised features not available. Description says Bonding over seven simultaneous ports via Sharelink, but the most I can bond thru Sharelink right now is 3 connections (ethernet, USB modem, and wifi in client mode). Right now the VidiuX cannot use access point mode to share data from multiple phones/tablets running the Vidiu app, which is the way to achieve 7 connections like you can on the VidiuGO (and I can't find a concrete statement from Teradek on an ETA or that it is in fact coming). Further, frame rates are only available in increments of 5 (20/25/30). I'm not sure where 23.976, 24fps, and 29.97 are. App is also buggy - I can't login to my Sharelink account from the app, but I can login from my VidiuX. Build quality is iffy - the fan whines at different pitches like it's being slowed down when you pickup and move the unit while it's on. The bottom metal portion also gets very hot -I hope it's designed to be a heatsink and that it does in fact provide enough heat dispersion. If you're okay being limited to only two bonded wireless connections (USB modem + hotspot/wifi) it'll work for that, but otherwise I'd wait to buy until the bonding issue is worked out at least.

Do not buy. Unreliable product.

We bought 2 of these units in June and after only 3 uses both are already broken. One unit will no longer accept video / no HDMI input and powers off and on randomly. The other accepts video but has the same power issue. Over the years we have owned 4 Vidiu streaming boxes and all of them have proven to be unreliable. The loss of power issue is a problem that Vidiu continues to have and as a result we, are done purchasing products from them. Very sad and unfortunate. DO NOT BUY.

The best integrated streaming device I have used

By Gerald
Rated 5 out of 5

This device gets a lot right and only a few things wrong. Lets start with what works well here. You have the ability to stream directly from this box to just about any streaming platform. All without the need for a PC. The mobile app works quite well with this and I'd certainly recommend you use the app over trying to navigate the menu systems on the small screen of the device itself. There is also a web interface built into the device that you can use for configuration as well. Your stream maxes out at 1080p 60fps but that is pretty standard for most live streaming needs even in a professional environment. There is a SD card built into the side of the device as well. This give you the ability to have an immediate copy of your stream. Keep in mind this is a bit of compressed version of your stream which is a fantastic safety feature. Another big selling point for me was to just use this device as a wireless video system. This device has the ability to create it own wireless access point. So if I am on set shooting video I have have the Vidiu X attached something to my camera rig and the client can simply connect to it with their iPad and have a live feed of everything I am shooting. This thing is truly a mobile system. You power this device via USB-C to a USB Power bank that has PD capability (which is most of the better USB banks these days) and because you don't need a PC to stream, the only remaining items you need are a camera and stable Internet connection which you can use your smart phone to accomplish. You could literally be live streaming from your high end mirrorless camera in the middle of the woods as long as you have good signal on your phone. Another huge plus with this device is network bonding. You can be streaming out via a wireless connection, an ethernet connection as well as a USB hot spot device. The device will load balance between all three connections to give you the most stable stream possible. Do note you will need to be using Teradek's online service, Sharelink, to use this capability. You can pay per gigbyte uploaded or sign up for a monthly account. The monthly plans are $25 for a max of 50gb data or $49 for 125gb. That may not sound like a lot of data but when you are livestreaming you are usually between 5-15 megabits per second anyway so those limits go a long way. If you are providing a streaming solution to clients getting this service is a no brainer. What are the negatives here? Heat for one. This little box gets pretty warm. If you have been streaming for over an hour this device gets a bit hot but not to the point where you could burn yourself or anything. It's just warmer than I like my electronics to get. Thankfully there is a cooling fan so I seriously doubt you are ever going to see any damage to the device due to overheating. You need to be sure you are not using this device tucked in a bag or anywhere where airflow is restricted. Personally I would have preferred the device to have been a bit bigger if this would have helped cooling. As it is this thing is only like roughly 4x3x1. It's super small. That being said because the Vidiu X is so small it makes it ideal for attaching to your camera rig like I previously mentioned. There is even a 1/4 mounting hole on the base so you could literally just attach this thing to the side/top of your camera rig or even out on a magic arm. I'd love to see the Vidiu X have the ability to have some basic functionality to overlay some graphics. With this feature the Vidiu X could be a fantastic solution for game streamers. If you are looking for a basic and simple solution for your live streaming needs it's really hard to beat this system especially at this price point. I think a person even with basic technical know-how can be up and running very quickly with this device. It is certainly MUCH easier to get up and running with the Vidiu X vs a PC and trying to get OBS running reliably which can be a nightmare at times. Plus this thing is made by Teradek who in my opinion are pretty much the best company out there when it comes to wireless video

Recently using the BMD ATEM Mini Pro switcher on outdoor 2~3 camera shoots and streaming using ZOOM & YouTube Live. I also use a pocket MiFi device for internet connectivity. Would this VidiU X be redundant (to my system mentioned above)? How could the VidiU X enhance what I currently have? Thanks!
Asked by: George
It would be redundant however the Vidiu piece by Teradek would give you more. Not only a hotspot like your MiFi but would give you Wifi connection.
