When it comes to major event broadcasting and remote-location publishing, a single Internet connection just won't cut it. And when big clients and reputations are breathing down your neck, the last thing you want is a botched connection.
So what do live media producers use to get the job done nowadays? An innovative piece of technology called cellular network bonding. Teradek's Bond system combines several 3G/4G/LTE modems into a single, robust Internet connection for deploying live video.
The Teradek 10-0659-GU Bond 659 AVC Backpack includes the Bond 657 Expansion Module with Cube 655 encoder. MPEG transport stream license for cube encoders, and a gold mount battery plate.
The Bond Backpack is an all in one professional HEVC/H.264 streaming solution for broadcasters seeking the best in signal reception and video quality.
High Gain Antennas
Wireless reception for Teradek Node modems is greatly enhanced with two high gain antennas attached to the interior of the backpack.
Gold or V Mount Battery Plate
Choose between Gold-mount, V-mount, or no battery plate for portable power. When your battery runs dry, Cubes internal Li-Ion battery will give you 5 minutes of operation while you swap power sources.
Each backpack supports up to 5 USB or Teradek Node modems, ensuring you have connectivity wherever you go.
Integrated Locking Cables
To keep things tidy, we've neatly integrated several locking connector cables to attach your bonding encoder to each Node modem, ensuring your system is always running even if your backpack is dropped or tossed across the room.
AVC Bonding Codec
At the heart of the Bond Backpack is the Cube encoder, a High Profile AVC encoder that supports bitrates up to 15 Mbps, both HDMI and 3G-SDI inputs, and a boot-to-live time of just 20 seconds. HEVC encoders are also available. Please see Bond 759.
To keep you comfortable and your gear operating optimally, we've integrated a practically silent fan to keep hot air out and cool air in.
Ergonomic, Weather Resistant Design
The Bond Backpack is ergonomic, lightweight, and weather resistant, allowing the camera operator to focus on the content and not on fatigue or damage from the elements. Nylon strips on the backpack's shoulder straps keep your cables neatly dressed along your shoulder, while the quick release lock on the front offers quick access to both the encoder and battery.
