1080p HD over WiFi or wired Ethernet

Cube is the world’s first camera-top wireless HD video encoder. Cube streams up to 1080p over WiFi or wired Ethernet. Cube is the ideal solution for guerilla filmmakers who need on-set video monitoring without the cost or complexity of a full VTR rig. Cube is also a great solution for full-scale film productions to eliminate camera tethering on long dolly moves, running footage, steadicam shots, hand-held operation, jib-arms, and crane shots.

Cube’s ad-hoc networking mode creates a network and streams directly to a decoding device such as a Laptop or iPad with no other equipment required. Using Cube’s infrastructure network mode Cube’s IP video stream can be distributed over a LAN/WAN or over the Internet. Cube uses the world’s most advanced video compression – H.264 High Profile Level 4.1 and provides Blu-ray video quality. Cube’s end-to-end latency is approximately 1/8-1/2 second.*

Cube is tiny (about the size of a deck of cards), uses only 2.5W of DC power, and weighs only 7 ounces, and mounts easily to a rail system, cage, hotshoe, or camera baseplate. Cube’s line-of-sight WiFi range is approximately 300 feet when used with a high quality WiFi access point. Cube has been tested extensively with RED ONE**, Arri Alexa, Panavision Genesis, Canon 5Dii, Canon 7D, various handi-cams and more.

Latency measured by independent third party testers. iPad’s native video decoder adds approximately 10 seconds of latency. An RTP solution for iPad will be available shortly to eliminate the latency issue.

Cube is not compatible with RED ONE’s HDMI output as its output is non-standard. Cube works beautifully with RED ONE’s HD-SDI.
