FAQ : MPEG Transport Stream (MPEG-TS) license

Which devices support the MPEG-TS streaming method?

 

  • Cube
  • Bond II
  • Bond Pro
  • Live:Air*
  • Live:Air Solo*
  • Slice
  • T-RAX

 

* 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:

 

  • Bolt
  • Clip
  • COLR
  • Sphere
  • 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
  • Slice
  • T-RAX

 

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 support@teradek.com 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.
