What iPad models are recommended for the Live:Air app?

Mixing multiple video sources and streaming can require significant device resources, and not all iPad models are capable of the highest settings.

For best results, Teradek strongly recommends using the iPad Pro 12.9-inch or the iPad Pro 9.7-inch.

The iPad Air 2 is the minimum for reasonable performance with Live:Air.

The following devices are compatible with the Live:Air app, but have different hardware capabilities and subsequent restrictions on the performance of the app.


Strongly Recommended:

  • iPad Pro 12.9-inch
  • iPad Pro 9.7-inch



  • iPad Air 2


Not Recommended:

  • iPad Air
  • iPad Mini 4
  • iPad Mini 3
  • iPad Mini 2


NOTE: "not recommended" models will need to have the encoding and streaming settings reduced or may have in-app limitations enforced.


Not Compatible:

All prior iPad models are not compatible and not supported by Teradek for use with Live:Air.
