Anybody can stream live online, but not everyone can make it professional. With VidiU Go, your live production is taken to the next level with broadcast quality 1080p60 video, bonded network redundancy, and cutting edge HEVC compression.
With HDMI and SDI inputs, VidiU Go seamlessly connects with both consumer and professional cameras, in addition to popular video switchers from Newtek, Roland, vMix, and more.
VidiU Go was designed to perform in the most challenging production environments, which is why we’ve included the very same bonding technology found in our high end broadcast systems. Never drop another live broadcast by streaming over the combined bandwidth from Ethernet, WiFi, and up to two 3G / 4G / LTE modems, or use several iPhone and Android smartphones as hotspots for even more bandwidth redundancy.
Node is our cutting-edge, broadcast grade 4G / LTE modems that offer 2 to 3 times the performance of carrier-branded modems while fitting seamlessly to the sides of the VidiU Go chassis.
Take your VidiU Go to the next level with several of our optional cloud-based tools that can help you distribute your content and streamline your workflow.
Expand the reach of your content and build a larger audience by streaming to multiple platforms at the same time. With Core and Sharelink, you can stream live on all of your favorite OVPs simultaneously, including multiple Facebook pages, Twitch, YouTube, and more.
We understand that VidiU Go is a critical component of your live broadcast, so we’ve built remote management into the Core and Sharelink platforms so your team can configure and prepare the encoder ahead of time from anywhere in the world.
While the RTMP protocol does not yet support HEVC compression, our transcoding engine allows you to take advantage of H.265’s bandwidth savings while ensuring video delivery in the common H.264 format.

The VidiU Go is a pocket-sized encoder that has the best chance of getting you webstreaming, reliably and from any location. VidiU Go is designed to get you out of trouble: it can handle: Every Connection Stream over WiFi or Ethernet networks Stream using a cellular USB dongle or by tethering your smartphone Stream using dual high-powered cellular Teradek Nodes with external high gain antennae Stream using the combined data of your available WiFi, Ethernet and cellular connections (requires Sharelink or Core for de-bonding in the cloud)
Live streaming is now the number one priority. News and even government agencies, houses of worship and health agencies, training and education institutes are all re-doubling their efforts to communicate live with private and public audiences.
H.264 is one of the most ubiquitous acquisition video compression standards on the market. It’s used for everything from capture on a mobile phone to delivery on most web platforms, including social networks such as YouTube and Facebook (live and on-demand). The sheer flexibility of H.264 has resulted in it being one of the most enduring standards to date. It’s still likely to be your primary delivery codec for some time to come.
With the ever-growing popularity of web streaming and content, especially on YouTube and Twitch; the need for a high level production (or one that at least looks like it) is accelerating. Just turning your webcam on won’t cut it anymore. You’re going to be up against a lot of competing content that looks professional. Essentially, you’re looking at a small-scale live production, where every aspect needs to be considered. So, where do you start? The majority of streamers already out there, most likely, will have started out with a webcam, routed through a CDN platform like OBS, which is free software that, as well as streaming, provides basic mixing features that allow them to create live productions. A basic enhancement is to stream direct from a professional camcorder or attach your existing camera to a Teradek VidiU Go or Datavideo streaming encoder.And, by all means, that’s where you should start too. But if your channel starts to grow and you pick up a decently sized viewer base, you may be able to start gaining revenue from your channel through video monetisation or subscriber donations. At this point, it’s definitely time to update your gear. Webcams are fine but, like TV, it’s a competitive market and subpar equipment and production value will leave you in the depths…Only to be overlooked by a bored viewer, aimlessly scrolling through YouTube.
Stream it live to anywhere from anywhere The simplest way to deliver content live to staff, students, customers and service users is via YouTube Live or Facebook Live. There are lots of ways to produce and stream professional looking video. Our technical team can advise you on the best solution for your needs – give us a call on 01457 851000.
All the key new products from NAB 2018: Blackmagic Design, Teradek, SmallHD, CoreSWX, Panasonic, Sonnet, SLR Magic, LEDGO, more! Richard Payne, Head of Technology writes... "The NAB Show is the world's largest convention encompassing the convergence of media, entertainment and technology. The general consensus was that despite the crowds around certain stands, attendance might have been lower than previous years. Wednesday and Thursday seemed quieter, so it will be interesting to see if this is proved when the attendance figures are released. You can read our show magazine at your leisure!"
