The Teradek BOND II HD-SDI MPEG-TS With Base bonding solution allows video professionals to broadcast 1080p HD video over aggregated bandwidth from several network interfaces, including 3G/4G/LTE, WiFi, BGAN, Ethernet*, and Fiber. Bond devices utilize hardware-based high profile H.264 compression, resulting in very low power consumption and long run times. Each bonding solution offers a local monitoring capability on iOS devices, quick access to settings via an OLED display, and IFB for communication from the studio to the field. All Bond devices require a Sputnik server, which converts each bonded feed into a standard video format that can be sent to any streaming platform on the Web or to several H.264 decoders.
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. Teradek's Base provides you with an alternative to an Amazon EC2 instance for recombining the various streams of your Bond video transmission.
Simply connect the server to your network, assign it a static public IP address, and you're ready to go. 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.
WiFi and Ethernet bonding requires a compatible USB adapter
Sputnik Server & Dashboard GUI
Sputnik is Teradek's free software application between Bond and your streaming destination. Sputnik is designed to run on a Linux computer either in the cloud using Amazon EC2) or on a local server with a single, publicly addressable TCP port. The software recombines the packets from your cellular modems into a cohesive stream that can be sent to an H.264 decoder or viewed online.
Sputnik also integrates with Core (coming soon), a new cloud-based encoder fleet management system. From an intuitive Web GUI, users are provided with extensive control over many parameters of connected Teradek IP video devices. Core also offers a unique drag and drop workflow that allows you to direct video feeds from any encoder to any number of decoders in real time.
