Teradek launches Prism Flex, the company’s flagship 4K HDR encoder/decoder system designed for mission-critical IP video transport workflows.
A new encoder/decoder designed with low latency in mind, Teradek’s Prism Flex is the successor to the company’s venerable Cube line of hardware codecs. Like the Cube, Prism Flex packs a ton of functionality into a tiny package – delivering secure, reliable, low latency streaming with a wide variety of transport protocols.
Prism Flex joins Prism Rack: Teradek’s flagship encoder/decoder system used by top brands like NASA, Netflix, NBCUniversal, BBC, and USA Today for secure IP video delivery. With Core – Teradek’s cloud service – Prism users can monitor and distribute several streams from anywhere in the world. Whether operating in a television studio, streaming from a live production, or transmitting video to a satellite campus, Prism preserves your video’s vibrant colors and vivid details for all to see.
Prism Flex’s compact, low-power design and 12G-SDI and HDMI I/O make it easy to integrate into any live production workspace and workflow. With on-board recording and store and forward functionality, Prism Flex sets itself apart as the perfect complement to remote collaboration workflows. In addition, Prism Flex gives users secure monitoring options for viewing their streaming content with latency over WAN as low as 300ms on AppleTV, Mac OS, and iOS devices.
But the real story with Prism Flex is its color-accurate 4K HDR video streaming in AVC or HEVC. With 10-bit, 4:2:2 support, Prism Flex delivers the highest quality streaming video for broadcast and production workflows. This means that you can start and finish in 4K.
A no-brainer solution for remote production
When paired with Teradek’s Core cloud platform, it transforms Prism Flex into an IP video powerhouse – allowing users to remotely collaborate, manage, archive, monitor, and distribute their streams to any and all destinations simultaneously.
