Teradek’s Cube 700 Series Encoders Joins NDI Ecosystem

Teradek joins the NDI ecosystem to power its innovative line of encoders: Teradek Cube 705 and Teradek Cube 755. By purchasing an NDI license, Cube owners can use NDI to send video over IP with more ease and efficiency.

NDI (Network Device Interface), developed by NewTek, is hailed as one of the most efficient protocols on the market for local network video stream delivery. It moves live digital media around with a user’s existing software applications, computing devices, and networks. It preserves visual quality, frame accuracy and sound synchronization while merging all stages of production from beginning to end.

“Software-driven IP workflows have become ubiquitous in video production,” said Michael Kornet, vice president, NDI. “NDI-enabled devices like Teradek Cube 705 and Cube 755 exponentially increase the video sources available for live production creating efficiencies and opportunities for customers that did not previously exist. NDI is the most widely adopted IP technology on the market, epitomized by the millions of customers with access to it today.”

Since NDI puts video feeds on a network, Cube owners no longer need to rely on HDMI or SDI long distance cables. NDI also seamlessly integrates with vMix, TriCaster and other switchers. And for those concerned about SRT, Cube owners can still use SRT for remote feed transport to a TriCaster, and NDI for local ingest.

"Cube has always been referred to as the ‘Swiss Army knife’ of video encoders, offering incredible flexibility in a tiny chassis," said Michael Gailing, Teradek’s General Manager of IP Video and Live Production. "Now with NDI, Cube fits seamlessly into any kind of production workflow, from remote contribution to local ingest over IP."
