Teradek has announced the new Vidiu X, an ultra-slim HD streaming encoder.
The Vidiu X can stream via an ethernet, WiFi 6 or Cellular (5G Ready) connection. To bond these connections together you will require a Sharlink subscription.
The Vidiu X has a single HDMI input that can receive up to 1080p. There is also an analog input available.
It also features Airmix compatibility which lets users stream video from multiple sources on their iOS device.
Setting it up is quite simple using the iOS or Android app where you can configure the destinations, stream settings and network connections.
You can also monitor the feed from the app.
Sharelink is Teradek’s cloud-based subscription-based platform that allows for bonding and simultaneous streaming to multiple services.
Pricing & Availability
The Vidiu X starts at $699 USD which includes the Vidiu X, a hot-shoe adaptor, HDMI cable & a 30W USB-C power adapter.
If you are looking for a simple, plug & play streaming device, the Vidiu X looks like a good option without having to add a separate computer with a capture device.
