Next Generation Line Of Prism 4K HDR Codecs Launched By Teradek

Teradek’s latest line of Prism 4K HDR encoders and decoders make it more affordable than ever to upgrade your IP video workflow to the cutting-edge.

Prism is the first of a brand new line of codecs designed to revolutionize professional IP video workflows. The high density 2RU and 1RU chassis’ support up to 9 or 3 HEVC blades, each capable of encoding or decoding 10-bit, 4:2:2, 4K HDR video. The system is multicast-capable and supports common protocols such as MPEG-TS and RTMP(S), in addition to SRT for secure, low latency streaming.

Teradek designed the Prism line of products to be the most dependable and adaptable codec in your workflow, which is why they’ve included redundant power supplies and dual gigabit ethernet ports for network flexibility in dynamic production environments. High-density codecs are typically time-consuming to configure, but not with Prism. Its web interface allows users to manage each blade from a single browser window, making setup a quick and easy experience.

“When we began development of Prism, we spent a lot of time working with our customers to produce a solution that would help them transition to a 4K workflow in a cost-conscious manner,” said Nicol Verheem, CEO of Teradek. “To achieve this, we built our platform from the ground up, using a completely new encoding technology stack and a new design philosophy that is better aligned with what our customers are looking for from a next gen IP video solution. The result is a product line that delivers exceptional video quality, tremendous value, and most importantly, dependability. We view Prism as the next chapter for Teradek in the IP video world.”

For expanded functionality, Prism can be connected to Core, Teradek’s IP video management and production platform. With Core, users can remotely monitor, configure, route, transcode and record their IP video streams securely in the cloud.
