Teradek Prism


Teradek has announced the Prism, a 4K HEVC encoder/decoder solution for broadcast, live production, and Pro AV applications.


Prism is the first of a brand new line of codecs that will revolutionize professional IP video workflows. With room for up to 9 blades in a 2RU chassis, Prism can encode or decode up to 4Kp60 video with stunning 10-bit 4:2:2 image fidelity. Each blade also supports up to 8-channels of audio and is capable of 4 simultaneous 1080p60 video feeds.

Key features

  • 4K / UHD encoding / decoding at up to 60 fps
  • HEVC / H.264 compression
  • 10-bit, 4:2:2 image quality
  • 8-channels of audio per card
  • Optional redundant network and power options
  • Up to 4 simultaneous 1080p60 encoders per card
  • Genlock input
  • SRT and Zixi ready

Prism offers the flexibility and scalability required by broadcast and enterprise customers operating on the cutting edge. The system’s redundant power and network connections ensure mission-critical reliability in challenging environments, while a Genlock input offers frame sync on decoder outputs. Prism supports many common streaming protocols (MPEG-TS, RTP, RTMPS, etc..), in addition to SRT and Zixi. A software update will enable support for remote production workflows (REMI) in the near future.
