Which devices support the MPEG-TS streaming method?
- Bond II
- Bond Pro
- Live:Air Solo*
* NOTE: Live:Air and Live:Air Solo cannot directly generate an MPEG-TS stream from within the program, they can only generate RTMP. However, Live:Air and Live:Air Solo can be used as an Encoder source with the Teradek Core service, and this allows MPEG-TS streams to be sent out from a Core-controlled Sputnik server.
MPEG-TS is not supported on the following devices:
- VidiU (original)
- VidiU Mini
- VidiU Pro
Which devices have built-in support for MPEG-TS?
The following devices have built-in support of the MPEG-TS streaming protocol and do not require the purchase of a separate license.
- Bond II
- Bond Pro
NOTE: an MPEG Transport Stream license will not appear in the Encoder's web user interface, but the option is still unlocked in firmware and able to be configured.
How do I get the MPEG-TS license?
The license may be purchased through the online store at www.teradek.com.
NOTE: Be sure to include the serial number of your Cube Encoder to allow the unique license to be generated.
Is a demo license available?
Yes, please email the serial number of your Cube Encoder to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting the demo MPEG-TS license.
What are the limitations on the demo license?
The demo license offers all functionality of the full MPEG-TS license -- there is no time limit or restriction on video bitrate or resolution.
However, a watermark is placed on the video streamed while the demo license is in place.
Do I need a license for the Teradek Decoder?
No, the license is only needed on a Cube Encoder.
The license is not needed on a Cube Decoder, Slice Decoder, or T-RAX Decoder as the ability to receive MPEG Transport Stream is built in to those devices.
NOTE: an MPEG Transport Stream license will not appear in the Decoder's web user interface, but the option is still unlocked in firmware and able to be configured.
Can I transfer the MPEG-TS license from one device to another?
No, licenses are unique per device. Once issued, licenses are non-transferable and non-refundable.
What audio and video codecs are available with MPEG-TS?
Video : the video codec is H.264. It's not possible to send MPEG-2 or MPEG-1 video, only H.264.
Audio : in addition to the default AAC audio codec, the MPEG-1 Layer 2 (sometimes referred to as "MPEG-2") audio codec is available for devices which require that codec. AAC is the recommended audio codec.
