Teradek VidiU overview

  • 1Description

The Teradek VidiU is a consumer-grade on-camera video streaming device capable of sending 1080p HD video from a camera to the Web in real-time. You can be recording a kid's baseball game in the park and simultaneously broadcasting it to family at home. VidiU features an HDMI camera input and encodes video in the popular H.264 codec.

VidiU streams to content delivery networks and media servers and is set up for native integration with the Ustream and Livestream platforms -- you'll just need to log in to one of these, select a channel or event, and stream. VidiU streams by dual-band WiFi and features a 60-minute internal battery to fully support wireless streaming, and it can also stream by Ethernet or by an optional 3G/4G USB modem.

VidiU attaches right on top of a camera by an included hot shoe adapter. An OLED display indicates connection status and other info and is operable by joystick-type navigation buttons. Audio support includes AAC encoding and a headphone output. In addition to streaming to a platform, you can also simultaneously stream to an iOS device so you can monitor your live broadcast.

Live Streaming without a PC
The Teradek VidiU lets you wirelessly stream live HD video from a camera or switcher directly to the Web without a PC.
Ustream & new Livestream Native Integration
VidiU offers API level integration with the Ustream and new Livestream platforms, letting you stream to your channel as easily as logging into your account.
Broadcast to Any Streaming Platform
Choose the CDN you want -- VidiU's generic RTMP interface allows you to stream to a Wowza server or the platform of your choice.
Go Live Anywhere Cable-Free
VidiU streams over dual band MIMO WiFi, Ethernet, or via one optional 3G/4G USB modem. For events that require you to be completely wireless, VidiU's rechargeable lithium-ion battery lets you roam cable-free for up to 60 minutes.
Stream to iOS Devices
VidiU offers a free application for iOS that allows you to stream a second video feed to your mobile device for monitoring your live broadcast. Since VidiU acts as its own dual-band access point, you can choose to connect your iPad or iPhone directly to the device or to your local network.
Full HD Video
Connect your HDMI video source to VidiU and stream at resolutions up to 1080p. VidiU encodes video in real-time using high-profile H.264 compression and AAC audio at up to 5Mbps. Embedded HDMI audio, headphone output, and a mic/line input are supported.

    Teradek VidiU reviews

    VidiU is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little box I've used the VidiU to stream a couple live sporting events. It's great for a compact, single-camera setup. I streamed 720p with great results (1080p was going to be too much for the bandwidth I was allocated). Definitely go with the iOS app for setup as it's incredibly tedious to get set up on the device itself. The app makes setup a lot easier plus it includes a nice monitor with minimal delay along with easy access to the encoder and platform settings. My biggest complaint is that this device doesn't include a shoe extension - if you want to mount anything else on your camera, you'll need a shoe extension or v-bracket.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Web Browser App solves interface issues I'd give this product a 5 star rating but the interface on the box is just flat out difficult to use. I've had trouble using the mobile app as well because my phone seems to be on the fritz but....while on the phone with support I discovered there is a web browser interface app included in the latest firmware update (not documented in included documentation) which pretty much eliminates all the interface problems in my book and I love it even more now. You just point your web browser to the IP address of the Vidiu. I have 2 of these. One as my primary encoder the other as my backup.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works Great After Teradek Fixed It Unfortunately, the unit I received was defective and I had to ship it back to Teradek for repairs. Once I got it back it works flawlessly. Be aware that only certain USB 3G/4G modems work and Teradek does not have a list online of which work and which don't. My AT&T Beam does NOT work so that's still a headache for me since I would have to pay a restocking fee if I returned it to AT&T. On WiFi and Ethernet the units works like its supposed to. I've only used it with Ustream so I can't speak for other platforms. Quality of streams is excellent although expect :30 to 2:00 delays in the stream depending on the quality of the stream and your Internet connection. Overall it's a great device if you get one that works. Unfortunately I've heard from several people who got defective units and had to ship them back to be fixed. Great news is Teradek customer service is excellent and get an A+ grade.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! First I bought the Livestream Broadcaster Pro but realized that I cannot use it for YouTube Live. I thought I read somewhere that it can be used for YouTube but when I called Livestream support the guy's unenthusiastic and curt reply was that I can't use it for YouTube. May be I misread. So I returned it and bought VidiU. I had to google to figure out how to access its web interface. Once there it was a breeze to setup. My first streaming of a four-hour live event went unbelievably smooth, without a hitch! Overjoyed! Curious fact: When I opened the VidiU packaging it looked eerily similar to the Livestream Broadcaster Pro I just returned! Same size, shape and design packaging. Are they both made at the same factory? Not that it matters - it does what I want it to do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delivers Overall a great little broadcaster. Cant comment on Wifi connectivity, or battery life as Im using a wired ethernet connection & the included AC adapter. Using app on a tablet for broadcast control (Android). This setup works flawlessly. Boot up does take a couple minutes, but isnt an inconvenience if broadcast is planned. Super easy install (Basically plug & play) and configuration, as long as you use the app. Display is easy to read. Navigation is intuitive, however if you were stuck using just the little directional button, you would probably find inputting info a bit finicky and time consuming.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable streamer; good smart phone inte I help run a live lecture-in-a-bar series & wanted a way to stream our shows both online and into the next room. This does the trick well at a pricepoint that apparently can't beat. Streaming to ustream and YouTube worked well. We use the ethernet streaming for reliability, but it worked reasonably well over wifi and with a USB 3G modem I tested with. I wish the front panel interface was a bit more useful. I've found the android app is nearly essential in changing settings. This has proved to be more more dependable than our HDMI (over cat5) extenders.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wireless Video Success The Teradek VidiU worked like a charm. What's more, BH came through at the last minute like a champ. Received the request to stream content live to FB on a Thursday afternoon for an event scheduled in a day and a half. Placed the order as soon as I got back to my office and selected overnight delivery. The VidiU arrived as promised by 10:30am the next morning. It took a few hours to configure and test the device for the live event. On the day of the event, the VidiU did exactly what it was supposed to do - deliver an 720p signal to FB Live. Thank You B&H for your fantastic Customer Service and on-hand stock. I couldn't have successfully completed the mission without your help.
