We want to share an exciting new portable streaming unit called TeraDek Bond! It can be used anywhere, yes anywhere, with a cellular signal to offer remote live streaming capabilities. It works with 3G, 4G and LTE networks so you will never need wiring or a hardline internet connection. Imagine the convenience and flawless live stream you can manage with this unit. Not only that, you can have a failsafe connection for your live stream so nothing will slow you down!
We tested it and got speeds ranging from 125 mbps and higher, which is remarkable! The unit comes with up to 5 USB or TeraDek node modems, which you can buy as needed. The nodes adapt to changing technologies so the cost of keeping the unit up-to-date is lower as nodes are modular and lower in cost than the unit. It comes with high gain antennas, and a gold or v-mount battery option which you can purchase as per your requirements.
Not only is the unit flawless but it is also easy to handle and organize. It comes with integrated locking cables so even if the backpack containing the unit is thrown across the room, your cables are secure and organized. The unit comes with active cooling so the gear runs smoothly, and you can even add on mounting gear for easier set-up. The backpack is ergonomic, lightweight, and weather resistant so you can carry it with ease, focusing on what really matters like your live stream!
For the tech gurus out there, how does it work? The TeraDek Bond has an encoder that lets us take a signal through HDMI or SDI and we can then broadcast is to YouTube, Facebook Live, Vimeo and any type of streaming service. The TeraDek Bond pairs the unit with the network management interface. Each node has its own hotspot or Wi-Fi connection through a SIM card which collaborates to one cellular network, or you can have two nodes on the same network for a signal that is twice as strong. Compatible with 3G, 4G and LTE, we can stream data based on local cellular signals and we can also connect each node to a different carrier company to minimize risk. The device is intelligent enough to take any number of cellular network connections and merge them to build a stronger network, a truly failsafe network!
- It has amazing features which give you a failsafe connection and peace of mind for all your live streaming needs.
- If things change, it has the flexibility to do hardwire internet connection or a cellular signal
- The ability to do a completely mobile stream is unmatchable! If you are conducting multiple interviews at different locations, all you have to carry around is the unit and accessories. This was simply not possible before today.
- The connection is uninterrupted whereas if you are using a hotspot, you may need to connect to a different one. This unit helps us automatically get a backup from the next cellular network that is available. You can have each node connect to a different carrier network to never lose a connection.
- You will never run out of power. Hotspots usually drain battery quickly, but this will last you much longer. Also, when your battery runs dry, the unit has an internal Lithium Ion battery that will give you 5 minutes of operation while you swap power sources.
- The quality of stream, duration and data usage make this viable as a pay-per-use style of product where you can charge upfront for the data.
- Ability to push high quality video that goes well beyond a cellphone. You can use professional cameras and do a television broadcast on the go.
- The modular upgrade ability of the nodes makes them adaptable to new cellular networks and technologies that will come in the future. Simply change the nodes which are a lower cost than the full unit.
There are no real challenges to the TeraDek Bond!
A few things to keep in mind are that the unit needs to be configured in advance to your specific event, to ensure the connections are put in place as opposed to doing it onsite. Also, bandwidth is finite so if you are relying on certain connections for an event stream, then the bandwidth gets adjusted for new speakers or changes. Be prepared as you may run low on resources.
Above and beyond the tips we shared above, the best we can say is that the TeraDek Bond is a revolutionary product!
