Bond

Limitless range, endless possibilities

Bond expands the award-winning Cube encoder’s transmission capabilities to create a state of the art cellular broadcast solution that helps you to go live from mission critical news events to your school’s football games.

With the power of 10 network connections...

Network bonding is the combination of wireless, wired, and cellular networks — such as WiFi, BGAN, 3G, 4G, LTE, Ethernet — to obtain a reliable, consistent video uplink that is capable of streaming high quality HD video.

start point
1 modem endpoint
2 Modems

With two network connections, you eliminate a single point of failure for your broadcast, while increasing your total available bandwidth.

endpoint 2 modems
3 modems endpoint
3 Modems

Three modems is usually all you need to stream in high definition from most metropolitan areas with good LTE coverage. By utilizing modems from several cellular carriers, you can protect yourself from sudden network outages on one company’s towers.

4 modems endpoint
4 Modems

If any of your modems’ service is spotty, Bond dynamically adapts to rely on your other network connections to keep the stream going. Our proprietary error correction protocol ensures your live stream looks rock solid despite poorly performing cellular networks.

5 modems endpoint
5 Modems

At 5 network connections, depending on your location, you have enough bandwidth to stream reliably in 4K. Some operators choose to add a BGAN connection for extra bandwidth security.

6 modems endpoint
6 Modems

With Teralink, you can contribute the LTE connection of up to 4 iPhones to your bonded broadcast, adding even more bandwidth redundancy to your stream. Simply launch the free Teralink app on your iPhone, connect to Bond, and you’re ready to go.

6 modems endpoint
Ethernet

For events in a fixed location, an Ethernet line can provide a stable link for your broadcast. Combined with Bond’s other 9 possible data connections, bandwidth concerns will never be an issue again.

...you can broadcast anywhere

Bond can take you live from just about any location, whether that's from professional sports stadiums, metropolitan centers, out in the desert or even from helicopters.

A sum greater than its parts

From the Bond module to Cube to Node, Teradek’s complete bonding solution allows you to create a system that works just the way you need it to. Whether you’re an existing Cube 600 user seeking to upgrade your transmission capabilities or new to the Teradek ecosystem, Bond offers a highly customizable solution that suits workflows large and small.

  • Upgrade your Cube 600 with a Bond module. Choose between 3 encoder models: Cube 600, 700, and 800
  • Utilize Teradek Node modems, USB modems, or any combination of the two
  • Prefer something more portable? Get an entire Bond solution built into a backpack

At the heart of Bond is Cube, a High-Profile H.264 and H.265 encoder that supports bit rates up to 30Mbps and a boot-to-live time of 20 seconds. Cube is capable of streaming in 4K and includes a series of professional features such as adaptive streaming, closed-captioning, and both HDMI and SDI inputs.

The Bond expansion module seamlessly connects to any Cube 600, 700, or 800 series through a pogo pin connector. Once connected, the module offers up to 4 additional modem connections via USB or 4-pin connector. A built-in 5 minute Li-Ion offers continuous power during battery swaps.

Node is a high performance 3G / 4G / LTE modem that provides exceptional connectivity and weather resistance. The modem connects to Bond via your choice of USB or 4-pin connector, with the latter offering superior coupling to the chassis.

Bringing it all together

Required for Bond, Core is a complete IP video management ecosystem in the cloud. When you stream over bonded network connections, a server running demuxing software is required to turn the data back into a recognizable format. For Teradek, this is a Sputnik server, which is built into the Core platform.

Once your video stream hits the Core platform, you can:
App Store
Archive
Record each stream on AWS servers in real-time.
Transcode

Convert your video feed from HEVC to AVC, or change your stream’s bit rate, resolution, and/or frame rate.

Configuration via Core
Configure
Remotely monitor and configure all of your Teradek codecs from the Core dashboard.
Multi-platform delivery
Stream to unlimited destinations at the same time, including YouTube, Facebook, Twitch, Periscope, custom RTMP servers, HEVC/AVC decoders, and more.
