The Prism Flex features a compact, multi-I/O, low-power design, which allows it to fit into compact spaces.
Teradek has launched Prism Flex, its flagship 4K HDR encoder/decoder system designed for IP video transport workflows.
Prism Flex is the successor to Teradek’s Cube line of hardware codecs. Like the Cube, Prism Flex delivers secure, reliable, low latency streaming with a wide variety of transport protocols, the company said.
The Prism Flex allows to input up to 4K video via Gigabit Ethernet or Wi-Fi and output video via HDMI or 12G-SDI to displays, recorders, or switchers. The Ethernet and Wi-Fi connections allow for live monitoring on a LAN and to receive streams from the internet or from a remote destination over a cellular network. It supports encoding high-quality, low bandwidth HEVC/H.265 and H.264 codecs as well as up to 4:2:2 10-bit HDR video.
In addition, Prism Flex gives users secure monitoring options for viewing their streaming content with latency over WAN as low as 300ms on AppleTV, Mac OS, and iOS devices.
When paired with Teradek’s Core cloud platform, it transforms Prism Flex into an IP video powerhouse – allowing users to remotely collaborate, manage, archive, monitor, and distribute their streams to any and all destinations simultaneously.
Michael Gailing, GM of Live Production, said: “Prism Flex is the culmination of years of testing and feedback from some of our largest customers, including NASA, Netflix, and USA Today. What I think customers will love most is just how much cutting-edge functionality is packed into such a small device. With so many organisations moving to mobile and remote production workflows, a product like Prism Flex is just a no-brainer.”
