Teradek Serv Pro Miniature SDI + HDMI Video Server
Serv Pro is a hardware device that streams live 1080p video over WiFi to up to 10 iOS devices running the Vuer application. Each feed is view-able at just 2 frames of delay and includes a stereo audio signal embedded within the stream. Serv includes both HDMI and 3G-SDI inputs and is equally at home mounted to a camera, on a DIT cart, or at video village.
Teradek Serv Pro In the news…
The Teradek Serv Pro on-set iOS/Android and macOS monitoring tool, can now be used to send a feed off-set for total crew collaboration.
Current owners can download the free Serv Pro firmware update 2.1.5 to add off-set client and crew viewing! With this new update, Serv can be used with Core, their cloud-based management system, to send video feeds to viewers anywhere in the world. This upgrade is completely free to owners of Serv Pro, and all you need to add to your workflow is a Core account!
How We Gave Monitors to Everyone On Our Team in Iceland (feat. DP Anthony Littlechild)
“If we didn’t have the Serv Pros, we’d have to bring two different wireless video systems and monitors for the team. But thanks to iPad monitoring, we saved a ton of time on every location and shot in beautiful locations the world has rarely seen before.”
How ABC’s “Back in Time For Dinner” Gave Monitoring to its Entire Crew on Set:
“One of the biggest obstacles on major sets is how many people want to see the shot. We work in an age of cinematography where because you have tools like monitors, more people want to see it to make their jobs easier. But on top of that, since this show had major network backing, we had clients from Warner Bros, BBC, and even media outlets come to check out the production. So instead of taking our monitors, we used the Serv Pro instead.” (Tim Hawkins, DP)
Real-time iOS Monitoring for everyone on set
Stream live HD video from your camera, video switcher, or DIT cart to multiple iOS devices on set
With iOS monitoring, anybody from script supervisors to clients can view what’s being shot from their own iOS device, saving you space at video village.
Script Supervisor: Script Supervisors can simultaneously monitor up to four camera feeds and annotate scripts from within the iOS app.
Boom Operator & Sound: Sound can ensure their boom or plant microphones aren’t in the shot without having to disturb other departments.
Hair & Makeup: Hair & Makeup can ensure continuity with the talents’ look by using frame grabs and comparing with overlays.
Clients: Clients can keep an eye on the content without having to fight for a view of a monitor in video village.
At the core of Teradek’s iOS monitoring workflow is Vuer, a free iOS application that brings a comprehensive cinematographer’s tool-set to your iPad and iPhone. Vuer can display up to 4 live HD video feeds at one time, each with its own independent set of tools to help you and your crew gain insights into your footage.
Works harmoniously with Teradek Bolt and Paralinx products
Serv Pro operates on 5Ghz WiFi and is a complementary tool to zero delay wireless systems like the Bolt series. With proper frequency management, these systems will work together without interference.
