The Teradek Cube 255 HDMI Encoder with Wi-Fi is a wireless camera-top video and embedded audio encoder. It connects to a camera by HDMI and streams proxy files/dailies in H.264 to a decoder or website. You can stream by dual-band Wi-Fi wherever a network is available, by Ethernet via an optional router, or by optional 3G/4G modem connection otherwise. You can also store the files to a MicroSD card as the Cube features a MicroSD slot with support for 32 GB cards.
For mounting, the Cube attaches either into a camera's hot-shoe or onto a cage/rig by an included 1/4"-20 mounting screw. Aside from the HDMI input, connections consist of an Ethernet port, a 1/8" line/mic input and a headphone jack. A micro USB slot is available for charging and configuring.
Power is by an internal lithium-ion battery that lasts up to two hours or by an included AC power adapter. An OLED LCD screen indicates what the remaining battery life is and also displays online status and the URL being streamed to. Optionally, any of the following three 2-pin Lemo batteries can be used for power: the Teradek/Swit Canon BP-945, Teradek/Swit Panasonic D54 and Teradek/Swit Panasonic VW-VGB6.
