The Teradek Bond line of cellular bonding solutions allows video professionals to broadcast 1080p HD video over aggregated bandwidth from several network interfaces, including 3G/4G/LTE, WiFi, BGAN, Ethernet*, and Fiber. Bond devices utilize hardware-based high profile H.264 compression, resulting in very low power consumption and long run times. Each bonding solution offers a local monitoring capability on iOS devices, quick access to settings via an OLED display, and IFB for communication from the studio to the field. All Bond devices require a Sputnik server, which converts each bonded feed into a standard video format that can be sent to any streaming platform on the Web or to several H.264 decoders.
*Ethernet bonding requires USB to Ethernet adapters
Sputnik Server & Dashboard GUI
Sputnik is Teradek's free software application between Bond and your streaming destination. Sputnik is designed to run on a Linux computer either in the cloud using Amazon EC2) or on a local server with a single, publicly addressable TCP port. The software recombines the packets from your cellular modems into a cohesive stream that can be sent to an H.264 decoder or viewed online.
Sputnik also integrates with Core (coming soon), a new cloud-based encoder fleet management system. From an intuitive Web GUI, users are provided with extensive control over many parameters of connected Teradek IP video devices. Core also offers a unique drag and drop workflow that allows you to direct video feeds from any encoder to any number of decoders in real time.
