Bond II HDSDI 6 Port Cellular Bonding Device Int Enc
The Bond II SDI Cellular Bonding Solution with MPEG-TS from Teradek combines the functionality of two products, the Teradek Cube and Teradek Bond, into one dedicated device for encoding video and transmitting from remote locations using up to six available cellular modems. Although the BondII incorporates the Cube encoder, it only work with the cellular modem and cannot be used as a standard Cube encoder. However, it does have the advantage of being smaller, and requiring fewer cables, than using a Cube encoder and Bond combination to transmit your video via cellular modem. The BondII supports standard video formats up to 1080p 30 via its SDI input. It then encodes the video signal to H.264 using its built-in encoder, then transmits the file using attached cellular modems to be recombined by the Sputnik server and decoder. You can connect up to six USB Cellular modems or USB to Ethernet adapters, which allow you to transmit over several different network interfaces, including 3G/4GLTE, WiFi, BGAN, and Ethernet. The WiFi is built into the BondII unit, allowing you to connect select iOS/Android devices for local monitoring.
A built-in OLED display, allows you to access and adjust settings, and the BondII features a headphone output, which allows one way audio communication from the studio to the camera operator in the field. The unit accepts DC power from 6 to 28 volts, so it is ready for field and location work. Integrated Single Unit
The Bond II is a combination of a Cube encoder and Bond cellular transmitting solution. It supports video signals up to 1080p 30, over SDI. The unit encodes and distributes the encoded file to up to six available modems for transmission. Sputnik Server & Dashboard GUI
Sputnik is Teradek's free software application between Bond and your streaming destination. Sputnik is designed to run on a Linux computer either in the cloud using Amazon EC2 or on a local server with a single, publicly addressable TCP port. The software recombines the packets from your cellular modems into a cohesive stream that can be sent to an H.264 decoder or viewed online. Modem Attachment
The unit features six USB ports, you clamp an included modem support bracket, one for each modem, to the device, and plug the modem into the slot. Then use the bracket's hook and loop fastener to secure the modem to the bracket, creating a secure connection, that is resistant to jarring camera movements. Adaptive Bit Rate Streaming
Adaptive Bit Rate Streaming technology constantly adjusts the video bit rate in real time to adapt to varying network conditions. Adaptive Frame Rate Streamrate
BondII'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.
