Entering the market at a time when live streaming is experiencing great demand due to the pandemic, Teradek has announced a new HD streaming encoder solution known as the Vidiu X. It uses H.264 compression to capture and encode live video and broadcast it in HD to streaming platforms like Facebook Live, YouTube Live, Twitch, and Ustream. Designed for live content creators seeking 1080p video resolution and an encoder that’s HDMI-compatible with cameras, switchers, and media players, it even allows for integration with smart phones. It is designed to seamlessly integrate with larger multi-camera productions. Besides HDMI compatibility and HD Quality, the Vidiu X also allows for streaming to multiple platforms at once with Sharelink, Teradek’s cloud streaming platform. Teradek’s Sharelink is an additional service for Vidiu X that also allows users to combine bandwidth from Ethernet, WiFi, USB Modem, and several LTE connections to create a single robust uplink for higher quality, more reliable broadcasts from any location.
Other Vidiu X Features Include:
● USB-C to use with power banks
● WiFi-6 for higher data rates and better performance with high-usage networks
● Sharelink (Teradek’s cloud streaming platform) for bonding and multi-destination streaming (optional service)
Pricing starts at $699 (US) and is available to order on teradek.com/vidiux-launch and at select retailers.
