Cloud Platform Features & Benefits

Remote Device Management
Effortlessly adjust settings and monitor video feeds of your Teradek encoders in real-time through the Core interface.
Enhanced Network Bonding

Leverage the combined bandwidth of Ethernet, WiFi, cellular modems, and hotspots connected to your Teradek encoder. This bonding technology ensures a stable, high-speed internet connection for optimal streaming performance.

Versatile Ingest Compatibility
Stream seamlessly from any third-party device to your Core account. Our system is compatible with a wide range of hardware and software solutions, offering flexibility in your streaming setup.
Multi-Destination Streaming
Simultaneously broadcast your stream to an unlimited array of destinations, including various online video platforms (OVPs), Teradek and third-party decoders, as well as popular software solutions like vMix and Wirecast.
Secure Streaming and Sharing
Securely share your encoder feeds with multiple clients and collaborators using Core Share apps. This feature allows encrypted video streaming to our iOS, macOS, tvOS, and web applications, ensuring privacy and security for your viewers.
Comprehensive Cloud Recording and Archiving
Record all your video feeds in real-time, even without active streaming. Store recorded MP4 and TS files either in your Core account or externally on Google Drive or an FTP server for convenient access and archiving.
Real-Time Remote Collaboration
Enable instant remote collaboration by providing live camera feeds directly from the field for monitoring. This allows for immediate creative input and decision-making, enhancing the collaborative process.
Efficient Camera-to-Cloud Workflow
Facilitate post-production by sending low-quality proxies or high-quality encodes intended as Original Camera Files (OCF) to remote creatives for review after each take. This accelerates sharing with editorial teams or post-production facilities.
Advanced H.265 to H.264 Transcoding
Customize your video feed quality by transcoding from H.265 to H.264, including options for deinterlacing from interlaced to progressive formats, to meet specific broadcast and streaming requirements.
Real-Time Quality of Service Monitoring
Monitor the status and detailed performance statistics of your encoders in real time. Core also provides global server ingest points, including dedicated servers for businesses needing static IP addresses, ensuring reliable service quality.
Automatic Failover Streaming
Ensure uninterrupted streaming with Core’s automatic failover switcher, which allows setting up to four backup video feeds. The switcher activates a backup feed automatically upon primary feed disruption, or manually as needed, for seamless streaming continuity.
