VidiU Pro is a new easy-to-use live-streaming H.264 encoder that sends video to any content delivery network over dual-band MIMO Wi-Fi, Ethernet, a single plug-in 3G/4G USB modem, or smartphone hotspot.
Topher DeLancy, brand manager, Teradek, said the VidiU Pro was aimed at the prosumer-level, live-streaming community.
“This is for people who are making money with their services, or plan to jump into that arena by acquiring this product. The VidiU Pro will also be ideal in markets like church AV production and education,” he explained.
“It’s only $1,000 and provides high quality live encoding [up to 1080p, up to 10Mbps], plus some other cool pro features like SD proxy recording [for editing and redistribution], and multi sourced bonding.”
It can use ShareLink (a subscription plan accessed through the VidiU App), which bonds multiple internet connections to create a robust connection ‘for fail-safe operation in the most challenging environments’. This was expensive broadcast technology until recently, and allows users to combine media, connecting up to four smartphone hotspots or use Ethernet and add a few smartphones as a backup.
VidiU Pro is compatible with virtually every streaming platform, such as Ustream, Livestream, and YouTube Live, or can use a manual RTMP address for services like Wowza. Thanks to its Bluetooth connection, users can prepare a broadcast quickly on a smartphone or tablet.
A rechargeable Li-Ion battery allows cable-free roaming for up to 60 minutes.
