The New Cube Is Here


Teradek, a world leader in compact HD H.264 video encoders, today announced a new addition to their award-winning Cube® family, the new Cube x55 series. The Cube x55 is a groundbreaking new product line comprised of four models, 155, 255, 355, and 455, which offer a number of important new hardware and software refinements, including an OLED screen, built-in MIMO WiFi technology, and a built-in rechargeable battery.

The new Cube x55 product line, like the original, is a camera-top wireless HD video encoder that connects with any HDMI, HD-SDI, or composite camera. The unit streams via a built-in dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n, an Ethernet port, or a single 3G/4G USB modem. All of the new x55 models have the same features as the original Cube, in addition to: an OLED display for rapid configuration and real time status, a headphone output, a built-in rechargeable Li-Ion battery with two hours of runtime, a micro SD port for onboard proxy recording, and a full featured MIMO WiFi access point, which will greatly improve wireless performance and enable wireless camera control for cameras without built-in WiFi capabilities. The Cube x55 product family also has added support for dozens of Content Delivery Networks (CDNs), including UStream,, Livestream, YouTube Live, Akamai, and many others.


“The new Cube x55 product line builds on the success of the original Cube and will continue to change the way people stream HD video,” said Nicol Verheem, CEO of Teradek. “We’ve sold more than 3,500 Cubes to date, so we spent a lot of time listening to our customer base and studying how the original product is being used in the field. We added the most requested new features while also retaining the same features that made the Cube the market leader, like its superior construction, size and weight. With all of this new and improved functionality, we are very confident that the new Cube x55 series will further solidify our success in revolutionizing the industry.”

The new Cube x55 products will be available later this month and will be showcased along with the Company’s other products at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show, from April 16-19, 2012 at Booth Number C11037.
