The Teradek Link offers broadcasters a whole new workflow for transmitting live HD video back to the station without
worrying about cellular dead zones. As a bonded V-mount cellular hotspot, Link can easily be placed in locations with
optimal signal reception so camera crews can roam freely at up to 300 feet away for long periods of time without
concern for poor signal strength or short battery life. This freedom is achieved by connecting one or more Teradek
encoders to Link’s a/b/g/n WiFi network. After receiving audio and video from the encoder, Link intelligently broadcasts
the feed over up to 6 aggregated 3G/4G cellular connections to a Sputnik server in the cloud or at your station. From
Sputnik, your video feed is then sent to your Teradek or IPTV decoder.
802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi Over Cellular
Link is capable of using all of the award-winning features of the Cube and Brik encoders while streaming, such as
monitoring on iOS devices, on-board proxy recording, and seamless external battery swapping. Additionally, Link
provides dual Ethernet jacks for hardline reliability and supports connections from any 802.11 enabled device, which
means you can check your email or upload files over Link’s Internet connection while streaming your video content.
Not only does Link accept video feeds from multiple Teradek encoders, it also supports connections from other 802.11
enabled devices** for Internet access. This feature enables broadcasters to quickly publish edited multi-camera
content via Link’s FTP capabilities over cellular
Adaptive Bit Rate Streaming
Link 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
Link'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.
