An interview from the 2023 NAB Show in Las Vegas with Colin McDonald of Teradek. Teradek, a subsidiary of Creative Solutions (CS), designs and manufactures high-performance video solutions for broadcast, cine, medical, and general imaging applications. From wireless monitoring, color correction, and lens control, to live streaming, SaaS solutions, and IP video distribution, Teradek technology is used around the world by professionals and amateurs alike to capture and share compelling content.

Camera-to-cloud is a new workflow that’s becoming an industry standard. It drastically shortens the time from production to post-production by uploading recordings to the cloud instantly, while you’re on set. The encoder sends 4K proxy files from the camera to the cloud platform, which post-production can then download and immediately begin editing, adding dailies color, and using proxies for reference to begin VFX. The NLE uses the proxies’ metadata to sync up with the original camera file (OCF). All edits are preserved and no work is duplicated.

Not only does camera-to-cloud give post-production a head start, it also gives post facilities opportunities to communicate back to production in real-time for true bidirectional communication. The editorial and finishing crew can use an encoder to livestream their edits to the cloud platform, which gives directors and producers more meaningful creative control. Seamless integrations between Sony Ci and Teradek Serv 4K gives you everything you need, in the cloud.

Link AX is Teradek’s new production-ready Wi-Fi router that features Wi-Fi 6 and five configurable ethernet ports to give filmmakers the most flexibility possible. Unlike typical off-the-shelf routers, Link AX is designed with a ruggedized metal chassis and Gold/V-Mount battery mounting options to withstand the demands of any production, without adding yet another power drain to your DIT cart or video village. Link AX facilitates numerous workflows that connect productions from set, to remote collaborators, to post.
