Teradek has announced the VidiU Go, a bonded cellular HEVC live streaming solution built on Teradek’s venerable Cube HEVC platform. VidiU Go streams to Facebook, YouTube, Twitch, and any other online video platform in 1080p60 video quality. VidiU Go begins shipping in May 2018 for $1,490 USD.
VidiU Go is a live streaming encoder for businesses, freelancers, and enthusiasts seeking to use reliable broadcast technology. With H.264 and HEVC built-in, the VidiU Go gives users the flexibility of delivering live video in the widely accepted AVC format or taking advantage of the efficiency of H.265 during bonded cellular broadcasts.
VidiU Go uses the same bonding capabilities taken from Teradek’s professional line of Bond Backpacks. The VidiU Go includes two USB ports designed for Teradek’s new Node for VidiU Go* modems, and the very same high-performance 3G / 4G / LTE modems found in the company’s high-end professional systems. Additionally, the Go can add even more bonded bandwidth via its Gigabit Ethernet port and built-in dual-band WiFi.
To take live streaming even further, the VidiU Go offers integration with Teradek’s Sharelink and Core platforms**, which provide remote encoder configuration and HEVC / AVC transcoding (Core only). Sharelink and Core offer multi-platform delivery, allowing users to stream to any and all of their favourite streaming platforms at the same time.
VidiU Go has both HDMI and SDI inputs, so it’s compatible with small camcorders and larger broadcast cameras. The Go is powered via a USB-C port, which makes it easy to power the system with external Li-Ion batteries. Like the VidiU and VidiU Pro, the Go is compatible with Teradek’s iOS video production suite, Live:Air Action, and the VidiU app for iOS, allowing users to quickly configure and monitor their stream, as well as overlay graphics and lower thirds right onto their live feed.
*Node modems optional
**Bonding requires a subscription to Sharelink or Core
The VidiU Go costs $1,490 USD and the Node for VidiU Go is $399 USD.
