The Teradek Cube 150/450 HD-SDI/HDMI Encoder/Decoder is equipped with an HD-SDI (serial digital interface) input, HDMI 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 150/450 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 150/450 Encoder/Decoder can be mounted to a rail system, cage, hotshoe, or a camera baseplate. In addition, it can be used with camera systems such as Red One, Arri Alexa, Panavision Genesis, Canon 5Dii, and Canon 7D. With low power consumption (2.5 W), the Cube encoder/decoder can be used for applications such as proxy recording, onset monitoring, webcasting, news gathering, and sports.
