The new Cube x55, like the original, is a camera-top wireless HD video decoder that connects with HD-SDI, or composite cameras. The unit streams via dual-band WiFi, an Ethernet port, or a single 3G/4G USB modem.
The new Cube x55 includes all of the same great features of the original Cube such as a compact aluminum chassis, comprehensive transport protocol support like RTP/RTSP/RTMP/MPEG-TS, and a variety of camera inputs. To bring Cube to the next level, Teradek has added a variety of important new features such as:
Cube’s new OLED enables users to rapidly change and review the settings of their unit in addition to providing real-time feedback for filenames, recording status, and wireless connectivity. No longer are computers or iPads needed for configuration; every feature is a simple click away.
Cube’s built-in Li-ION battery will give users up to 2 hours of runtime, which allows for seamless battery swapping or quick broadcasts. The battery can also be charged from an AC adapter or even a suitable external battery such as an Anton Bauer.
MIMO ACCESS POINT
The new MIMO access point feature greatly improves wireless performance and enables special features such as wireless camera control for devices without a WiFi capability built in, and ensures improved connectivity from an iPad or Android tablets.
Cube now comes with a headphone output for immediate audio monitoring.
The micro SD slot enables the new Cube to save onboard proxy recordings in real-time. The recorded files will also be automatically synced to your proxy server over WiFi or cellular connections.
Send Your Content Anywhere
When combined with a Teradek decoder, Cube will transmit live video to any location with a data connection. Whether your video feed is being sent back to a studio, into a video switcher, or displayed on a large screen, Cube’s point to point streaming solution can bring your content to audiences worldwide.
Streaming to an iPad
Cube enables producers, clients, and others on set to monitor every shot live on their iPads. Instead of running long, cumbersome cables to bulky monitors, Cube’s ability to turn the iPad into a mobile wireless monitor liberates cinema crews from wired tethers and cluttered studios. Video latency on the iPad is 7-8 frames.
Broadcast Live to the Internet
With a simple press of the Go Live! button, Cube™ will stream directly to your website, Facebook page, or a content delivery network (CDN) of choice. Cube supports multiple transport protocols, including RTMP, RTP/RTSP, RTP Push, MPEG-TS, and HTTP Live Streaming, which makes it the most versatile wireless video encoder available.
