Network communication requirements for using Teradek Encoders with Core

Updated

Overview

Teradek encoders and apps require the following network ports for use with the Core management system.

 

Inbound Network Connections

No incoming connections are needed from either the Core management system or a Hyperion server.

 

Outbound Network Connections

Outbound connections are initiated by the Teradek encoder or app, and arrive at the remote server on the indicated port.

If the Teradek encoder or app is behind a firewall, and that firewall blocks or filters outbound traffic, the necessary ports must be open to allow communication and streaming.

 

  • 80 (TCP) : Communication with the Core management system.
  • 443 (TCP) : Communication with the Core management system.
  • 5111 (TCP) : Communication with a Core-deployed Hyperion server, or a self-hosted Hyperion server using the default port. Also used by encoders or apps streaming video with the default TCP protocol. This includes Cube + Bond (original), Bond II, Bond Pro, the Cube / Bond / Slice 600 and 700 series encoders, VidiU Go, and Prism encoders. This also includes a standalone Cube Encoder, Slice Encoder, or T-RAX Encoder.
  • 5111 (UDP): Used by encoders capable of using the UDP protocol for streaming video to a Hyperion server.
    • Streaming with the UDP protocol is available on a Cube + Bond (original), Bond II, Bond Pro, 600 and 700 series encoders, and Prism encoders. The streaming protocol is changed from the default TCP to UDP.
    • This does not apply to a standalone Cube (1st or 2nd gen), Slice encoder (1st gen), T-RAX encoder, or apps.
  • 1024-65535 (TCP) : Communication and video streaming to an On Demand Hyperion server from devices and apps using the default TCP protocol. If On Demand Hyperion servers are not being used, this port range is optional. See this article for additional information.
  • 1024-65535 (UDP) : Communication and video streaming to an On Demand Hyperion server from devices which support the UDP protocol. If On Demand Hyperion servers are not being used, this port range is optional. See this article for additional information.
  • 8643 and 7011 (TCP) : For Prism and VidiU X to connect.
