Teradek Bond AVC Backpack
Mission Critical Live Video, Bond AVC Backpack 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.
Next Level Mobile Broadcasting
The Bond Backpack is an all in one professional HEVC/H.264 streaming solution for broadcasters seeking the best in signal reception and video quality.
High Gain Antennas
Wireless reception for Teradek Node modems is greatly enhanced with two high gain antennas attached to the interior of the backpack.
Gold or V Mount Battery Plate
Choose between Gold-mount, V-mount, or no battery plate for portable power. When your battery runs dry, Cubes internal Li-Ion battery will give you 5 minutes of operation while you swap power sources.
Each backpack supports up to 5 USB or Teradek Node modems, ensuring you have connectivity wherever you go.
Integrated Locking Cables
To keep things tidy, we’ve neatly integrated several locking connector cables to attach your bonding encoder to each Node modem, ensuring your system is always running even if your backpack is dropped or tossed across the room.
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 customisable 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
- Utilise 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.
Required for Bond, Core is a complete IP video management ecosystem in the cloud. When you stream over bonded network connections, a server running de-muxing software is required to turn the data back into a recognisable format. For Teradek, this is a Sputnik server, which is built into the Core platform.
