Stream Over Multiple Cellular Networks
Bond enables streaming 1080p HD video over five 3G/4G cellular modems from carriers worldwide. The device aggregates bandwidth from several cellular connections simultaneously and uses them in parallel to create a single, higher capacity connection for broadcasting over the Internet. Whether you are streaming directly to the Web or feeding content back to the control room, the Teradek Bond can transmit video to nearly any platform.
Send Your Content Anywhere
The Teradek Bond enables you to transmit your live HD content directly to the Internet or back to your station with the option to monitor your live feed on your iOS device. Bond’s revolutionary Adaptive Internet Streaming technology constantly adjusts the video bit rate in real time to adapt to varying network conditions. This will ensure that your content is delivered reliably and at the highest quality possible to its destination.
Sputnik is Teradek’s software interface between Bond and your streaming destination. Sputnik is designed to run on a Linux computer either in the cloud (using Amazon’s EC2 services) or on a local server with a single, publicly addressable TCP port. Sputnik recombines the various video feeds from Bond into a cohesive stream that can then be sent to an H.264 decoder or played back online.
Compact & Affordable
Bond is the smallest and most affordable cellular bonding solution on the market today. Forget about adding additional weight to your rig, Bond weighs less than 7 oz (200g) and is about the size of a deck of cards. Despite its industry leading design and features, Bond is very affordable, which opens the doors for anybody to go live from any location with adequate cellular coverage.
Base: Turnkey Sputnik Server & Decoder
Base is an integrated link aggregation and H.264 decoding solution for video broadcasts transmitted over the Teradek Link or Bond. As an alternative to an Amazon EC2 instance or building your own Linux server, Base de-bonds and decodes your video feed from a single rack mount server with an HD-SDI output.
The Teradek Dashboard is a web GUI for monitoring the performance of your Bond system. Dashboard displays the bit rate and latency per modem, total data usage, modem status, buffer length, and many other statistics to help you keep track of your streaming performance in real time.
Adaptive Bit Rate Streaming
Bond features Teradek's novel Adaptive Bit Rate Streaming (ABRS) technology, which dynamically adjusts the video bit rate and buffer of your stream in real time to adapt to varying network conditions. ABRS ensures that your content is delivered reliably and at the highest quality possible.
Adaptive Frame Rate Streaming
Bond's Adaptive Frame Rate Streaming feature was designed to ensure that your live video reaches its destination at any cost. If cellular service at your location suddenly drops to levels that are too slow to transmit an HD quality video, the AFRS feature will begin to drop the frame rate until your content reaches its destination in tact. This feature is ideal for breaking news coverage where successful video transmission is imperative at any cost.
