NAB 2017: Teradek Announces Suite of iOS Monitoring Tools for the Video Industry
today announced a series of new products that greatly simplify and enhance the iOS monitoring workflow for cinematographers. From app to access point, Teradek’s Link
, VUER app
, and Serv
products rethink the on set monitoring workflow and introduce a unified solution.
iOS Monitoring for the Entire Crew
The Serv platform brings high definition real-time video monitoring to iPhones and iPads over WiFi. At just 4 frames of delay, every critical member of your crew can view what is being shot without crowding around video village or requiring a heavy director’s monitor kit.
Serv and Serv Pro can be mounted on-camera or at video village and offer up to 300ft of range using their built-in WiFi access points or much further distances when connected to a WiFi access point.
The HDMI only Serv model supports up to 4 iOS devices at one time, while the dual input Serv Pro can stream to more than 10 iOS devices in high definition.
Turning an iPad into a Director’s Monitor
To get the most out of Serv, Teradek developed VUER, a free iOS application that gives users unprecedented insight into their live video feeds. With a built-in histogram, false colour, focus peaking, waveform monitor and vectorscope, digging into the details of your video feeds has never been easier. Also included with the app is a frame grab and compare tool, anamorphic de-squeeze, integration with Pomfort LiveGrade (LUTs), and much more.
For multi-camera productions, the Teradek VUER
app can support up to 4 live video feeds from any combination of Serv and Cube devices. Each feed maintains the same 4 frame latency and allows independent use of VUER’s toolset, giving you fine control over the information displayed on each feed.
