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 Bond II incorporates the Cube encoder, it only works 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 Bond II supports standard video formats up to 1080p30 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/4G LTE, WiFi, BGAN, and Ethernet. The WiFi is built into the Bond II 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 Bond II 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.
