The VidiU iOS application allows users to remotely monitor and configure their Teradek VidiU encoder over WiFi.
The Teradek VidiU gives you the freedom to broadcast live high definition video directly to the Web without a PC. Whether you’re streaming out of a video switcher or wirelessly from your camera, VidiU allows you to go live when you want, where you want.
VidiU offers API level integration with the Ustream and new Livestream platforms, which makes streaming to your channel as easy as logging into your account.
VidiU also allows you to choose the CDN that is right for you. VidiU's generic RTMP interface allows you to stream your live video content to a Wowza server or the platform of your choice at any time.
VidiU streams over dual band MIMO WiFi, Ethernet, or via a single 3G/4G USB modem. For events that require you to be completely wireless, VidiU’s rechargeable Li-Ion battery lets you roam cable-free for up to 60 minutes.
VidiU offers a free application for iOS that allows you to stream a second video feed to your mobile device for monitoring your live broadcast. Since VidiU acts as its own dual band Access Point, you can choose to connect your iPad or iPhone directly to the device or to your local network.
Connect your HDMI video source to VidiU and stream at resolutions up to 1080p (see Technical S). VidiU encodes video in real-time using high profile H.264 compression and AAC audio at up to 5Mbps. Embedded HDMI audio, headphone output, and a mic/line input are supported.
Use ShareLink to share your bandwidth (up to 4 iPhones/iPads) for increased bandwidth to stream live broadcasts, and our new backgrounding system for ShareLink allows you to share your bandwidth even while the app isn't running, provided you share your location.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Changes / Improvements:
- RTMPS toggle option for VidiU Pro
- Add SDI audio channels pairing setting for VidiU Go
- Add network connection status for wired and wireless
Ratings and Reviews
The app is a must to set up the hardware. That part works well. However when it comes time to stream my video, The connection from the app to the unit is unreliable. I am stuck using the buttons on the unit. I wouldn’t have purchased the VIDIU Pro knowing the lack of control and reliability.
Frustrating and Unreliable
This app is loaded on my iphone 6. When I start up my hotspot and then turn on the vidiu pro it spins and spins while looking for a wireless connection. Pressing the bluetooth button results in the same condition. It never gets to the screen offering you an opportunity to use your hotspot. Once in a while it seems to work and once you get connected (after 10 minutes of frustration) the app seems to monitor the stream.
I have found that the fastest most reliable setup is to just use the buttons on the device. Unfortunately it is almost impossible to read the screen in daylight. Great hardware, bad software.
Vidiu app is pretty good but...
Overall I'm happy with the application but specifically for Facebook streaming, it would be great if the app supported all the features of the platforms such as setting the location of the stream and things like that which are key features to get viewers watching the live content.
