The Teradek Beam is a full HD camera-back H.264 encoder, capable of delivering stunning video at bit rates up to 50Mbps.* Beam utilizes the unlicensed 5GHz band and can transmit video up to 2500ft with just 2 frames of latency. Whether the job requires a wireless link back to the OB Van or an MPEG-TS stream back to the station, Beam gives broadcasters unparalleled flexibility in the field.
*Transmitting above 30Mbps requires using the LAN port.
With a 3G-SDI input and your choice of AB- or V-mount battery plates, Beam seamlessly integrates with all popular professional cameras. The chassis also includes an OLED screen for quick configuration, LAN port for broadcasting over wired networks, and a bidirectional serial port for camera control.
Beam is multicast capable to up to 4 receivers and includes a dedicated bidirectional IFB channel, which allows a news operations center to speak directly to the camera operator in the field. Beam also supports high power transmission on the 5.15 ~ 5.25GHz band in accordance with FCC regulations. This means that your wireless video feed will be more resilient and get better range.
Beam is compatible with the RTSP and MPEG-TS protocols, giving broadcasters the ability to transmit video over the Internet to a Beam decoder or directly to computers at very high bit rates. The Beam decoder can also act as an RTSP server, which will re-stream your video feed directly to a local computer.
