Teradek Bond 318 and Cube 755 Package
Teradek Bond 757 Overview
The Bond 318 and Cube 755 Package from Teradek includes a Bond 318 Expansion Module, a Cube 755 Encoder, and an MPEG-TS license. The bond module supports up to five USB devices, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi. It also supports up to four iOS devices and is compatible with Cube 605/655, 715/755, and 805/855.
The Cube 755 encoder comes with one 3G/HD/SD-SDI (75 Ohm BNC) input and one HDMI type A receptacle input. It can be mounted horizontally or vertically with 1/4"-20 mounting holes.
Cube 755 HEVC/H.264 HD Encoder
Set up a Teradek Cube 755 HEVC/H.264 HD Encoder and output video for live monitoring on a local area network or stream to a remote destination over a cellular network. SDI and HDMI inputs can accept up to 1080p60 resolution video and any resolution that is accepted by either input can be streamed live over hardwired Ethernet, Wi-Fi, or USB (for connecting a cellular modem), and/or recorded to an SD card at a data rate of up to 30 Mbps. The lightweight chassis itself is built from robust aluminum and it can be secured atop most cameras using the included shoe mount. One side features an OLED panel for displaying device status and menus and a joystick for navigation.
HEVC and H.264 Encoding
HEVC, or H.265 provides an encoding efficiency improvement over the older H.264 format. All other things being equal an H.265 encoding will be of higher fidelity than H.264. H.264 encoding is still useful, and included to ensure compatibility with legacy hardware.
If connected to a local area network via Wi-Fi or Ethernet, the Cube 755 can stream the incoming video signal to up to 6 mobile devices running Android with the VLC app or iOS with the TeraView or VUER apps. Set your crew up with compatible devices and give them real-time wireless camera feeds without breaking the bank.
Import a 33-point 1D or 3D LUT to apply to the video being encoded by the Cube 755 to give your encoded video a finished look. Later, you can go back to the camera originals recorded with the log or flat profile and color grade them, but on-set your director, client, and crew will appreciate a more true-to-life image than the one being recorded. Another option is to use the Pomfort LiveGrade integration, using LiveGrade to manually configure a grade to apply to the encoded footage.

Bond USB Cellular Expansion Module
The Bond USB Cellular Expansion Module from Teradek combines several 3G/4G/LTE modems into a single bandwidth pipeline so you can stream live and in high definition from a cellular signal area. It connects to any Cube 600, 700, or 800 series through a pogo pin connector and offers up to four additional modem connections via USB (five total with Cube's one USB port), including Teradek Node high performance LTE radios. A built-in, 5 minute Li-ion battery offers continuous power during battery swaps so your transmission is not disrupted.
The Node, a high-performance 3G/4G/LTE modem, connects to the Bond module via USB and supports major LTE data bands, allowing you to use any SIM card for your region. When you stream over bonded network connections with the Cube and Bond expansion module, a Core server running demuxing software is required to turn the data back into a video format. The Core expands the Bond module's capabilities, including real-time transcoding, archiving, remote management and configuration, and multi-platform delivery.
