Teracue

Teracue was founded in 1991 by Karl-Heinz Wenisch and Wolfgang Schmiegelt as inPhase Fernseh-Studiotechnik to distribute products from Leitch and Videotek, which would ultimately come under the Harris banner (now Imagine Communications).

In 1998 the company moved into IP networking, developing what it claims was the first successful IPTV systems. In early 2014 Teracue was bought by German company Eyevis, a visual display and video wall system developer. Eyevis acquired all brands, names and patent rights, as well as keeping on the staff and management of its new acquisition. The renamed Teracue eyevis' IPTV product range provides a complete range of equipment to create a full network system. This includes video and audio codecs in formats such as H.264, MPEG-2 H.264, AAC (advanced audio coding) and MPEG-1/2 in one unit, AAC-only and MPEG-1/2-AAC for both SD and HD.
