Teradek has announced its new Prism Flex, a multi-tool for IP video. Prism Flex is a portable H.264/H.265 encoder/decoder that allows you to stream to any destination in up to 4K DCI.

Teradek initially released the Prism Rack Unit and now they have taken the Prism features and moved them into a more compact design. The Prism Flex features a compact, multi-I/O, low-power design so that it can fit into compact spaces. This makes it a good option for integrating into any live production workspace and workflow. You can place it on a table, camera, or wedge it between your video switcher and audio mixer.

The Prism Flex allows you to input up to 4K DCI video via Gigabit Ethernet or Wi-Fi and output video via HDMI or 12G-SDI to displays, recorders, or switchers. The Ethernet and Wi-Fi connections allow for live monitoring on a LAN and to receive streams from the Internet or from a remote destination over a cellular network. It supports encoding high-quality, low bandwidth HEVC/H.265 and H.264 codecs as well as up to 4:2:2 10-bit HDR video.

The Prism Flex also supports cellular bonding, so you can ensure a strong transmission by bonding both connections. You can also utilize the integrated SD card slot for recording your stream, or you can upload automatically to the cloud. The unit can be managed and monitored using the Prism App for iOS and Android to control resolution, bitrate, and bonding settings.

Prism Flex is designed to perform in mission-critical scenarios where reliable, color-accurate, and low latency point-to-point streaming is needed. This includes live production companies, broadcasters, filmmakers, megachurches, and large corporations.
