The Cube family are the world's first camera-top streaming HD video devices. The family includes six encoder models and two matching form-factor decoders. The Cube Encoder streams HD video over WiFi or wired Ethernet. The Cube Encoder creates its own wireless (ad hoc) network, and streams HD video directly to a Cube Decoder, a computer or laptop, a server, or a mobile device such as an iPad with no other networking equipment required. To extended your broadcast range, Cube Encoder can join an infrastructure network by using a wireless router and stream over a LAN or WAN. Experienced network users can use Cube to stream video over the Internet.
Cube's web interface features a Setup Wizard to simplify configuration. After connecting video and powering-up Cube, create a network, logon to Cube's web interface, complete the Setup Wizard, and begin streaming video.
Cube uses H.264 High Profile (Level 4.1) video compression, which is the most advanced compression algorithm in the world today, and it features a built-in scaler to convert from 1080 to 720, 480 or 240 resolutions. Users can choose a resolution and target bit rate based on the availability of IP bandwidth. Typical bit rates for HD are between 2-4Mbps, and SD bit rates are typically sub-1Mbps. Cube's end-to-end latency is approximately 1/8-1/2 second.*
Cube is tiny (about the size of a deck of cards), uses only 2.5W of DC power, and weighs only 7 ounces, and mounts easily to a rail system, cage, hotshoe, or camera baseplate. Cube's line-of-sight WiFi range is approximately 300 feet when used with a high quality WiFi access point. Cube has been tested extensively with RED ONE, Arri Alexa, Panavision Genesis, Canon 5Dii, Canon 7D, various handi-cams and more.
