The Teradek Beam is a full HD camera-back H.264 encoder, capable of delivering stunning video at bit rates up to 30Mbps. Beam operates on the unlicensed 5GHz band and can transmit up to 2500ft with just 2 frames of latency. Whether the job requires a wireless link back to the OB Van or an MPEG-TS stream back to the station, Beam gives broadcasters unparalleled flexibility in the field.

Multicast Capable + IFB

Beam is multicast capable up to 4 receivers and includes a dedicated bidirectional IFB channel, which allows a news operations center to speak directly to the camera operator in the field.  

Camera Control

Beam offers a full duplex RS-422 port for remotely controlling your camera.

Protocol Support

Beam utilizes the RTSP and MPEG-TS protocols, allowing broadcasters to transmit video over the Internet to a Beam decoder or directly to computers at very high bit rates. The Beam decoder can also act as an RTSP server, which will re-stream your video feed directly to a local computer.

Functional Design

With a 3G-SDI input and your choice of AB- or V-mount battery plates, Beam seamlessly integrates with all popular professional cameras. The chassis also includes an OLED screen for quick configuration, LAN port for broadcasting over wired networks, and support for high power transmission on the 5.15 ~ 5.25GHz band.
