So you want to stream your 7D live from that helicopter rig because you've got a live Moto Cross event to web broadcast? Before the helicopter's control system would have interfered with the WiFi. Not now. Find out more after the break.


Those clever people at Teradek have found the solution and its called Cube. The link to Teradek is here. And here's what they've got to say about it:

"Teradek are partnering with Orange County based F-Stop Aerial Media to develop a live-to-the-Internet HD streaming video solution for live event broadcasting. This video is from a successful test showing that Cube's WiFi radio does not interfere with the helicopter's control system.

This system can be used for live webcasts, and also filmmaking applications where the media is recorded in-camera, but the video is used for camera operating.

Two work flows are in play here. Video is transmitting from the Canon 7D via the Cube HDMI Encoder. On the receiving side, a Cube HD-SDI Decoder is displaying video on a SmallHD handheld monitor. The second workflow is streaming from the Cube Encoder to the web, either through Telestream's Wirecast, or directly to LiveStream.

Teradek are manufacturers of Cube, the world's first camera-top HD video encoder. Cube streams HD video over WiFi locally or over the Internet.

F-Stop Aerial Media own and operate two purpose radio controlled helicopter camera platforms, and leaders in RC helicopter filmmaking."

Thanks to Planet5D for spotting this one.
