Link is a ruggedized dual band WiFi router. Designed for use in broadcast and cinema applications, Link offers incredible range, several power options and a chassis suitable for regular abuse in the field and on set.
Link offers broadcasters a whole new workflow for transmitting live HD video back to the station without worrying about cellular dead zones. Link can easily be placed in locations with optimal signal reception, so camera crews can roam freely for long periods of time without concern for poor signal strength or short battery life. Auto discovery of MacOS/iOS/TD products makes setup simple, and allows/blocks devices from joining from a simple UI.

Dual Band 2.4 / 5 GHz | 802.11ac WiFi
Link supports the latest in WiFi standards and is backward compatible with 802.11 a/b/g/n.
Long Range Coverage
With 1000ft of range, Link offers enough WiFi coverage to blanket most medium sized venues.
Devices like the Serv Pro have a built-in range of 300 ft., meaning iOS devices need to remain close by to monitor the shot. With Link, ranges on all of your on-set wireless devices get extended to 1000 ft., giving you maximum mobility to capture that perfect shot.
Extra Range with Link to Link
Multiple Link devices can now be used together to extend the range of your WiFi network (regardless of whether you have Internet or not). This means you can place Links in far off corners of your set and have them blanket the entire area with a quick and reliable WiFi connection.
The 1st Link acts as your hub (we’ll call it your Master Link). Your 2nd Link must be set to Client mode, allowing it to connect to the 1st Link. The wireless network established by your Master Link is now extended to your Client Link, so devices on one end can talk to devices on the other. In essence, this is roughly the same concept as bridging your home WiFi with two routers.
With the new Link to Link extension, you can connect multiple Links to the Master Link, or daisy-chain them to cover more distance.
This feature is perfect for multicam film productions, sports games, interactive marketing activations, and any other occasion that requires large areas to be connected on the same bulletproof WiFi network. Whether you’re passing live video from Cube Encoder to Decoder on a football field, or monitoring multiple cameras on your iPad with Serv Pro far from the action, Link’s latest firmware upgrade keeps you connected no matter how large the venue.
High Throughput and Interference Resistant
Link’s quad core processor and significant internal memory ensure high data throughput despite numerous clients utilizing the network at once. Compared to typical consumer access points, Link offers optimized buffering and packet re-transmission, allowing you to maintain a consistent connection even in tough RF environments.
Super Rugged and Flexible Mounting
Link’s aluminum chassis allows it to withstand the daily abuse common in production environments or in the field. With several ¼”-20 mounts, the device can easily be mounted onto light stands, DIT carts, or OB vans.
External Battery Connection
Choose between a V-mount or 3-stud battery adapter to power Link for extended periods of time in the field.
Link’s passive PoE connection allows the system to be powered in line with the Teradek Sphere or any other PoE injector for a more streamlined setup on set.
Link offers standard WiFi network protection, including WEP, WPA, and WPA2 security.
