Teradek Cube Broadcasts Live Video From Your Camera Over Wi-Fi or Verizon 4G

Running in the $2000 range, it might not be the most practical way to show far flung relatives your kid's birthday party, but for those in the business of live streaming, the Teradek Cube crams a lot of solution in a little package. The deck of cards-sized box is a miniature, battery-powered H264 encoder that sends video directly from your camera—be it a fancy schmancy RED or a standard Handicam—to Livestream.com over Wi-Fi or Verizon LTE.

Operation is simple: the Cube slides into your camera's hot shoe and, once configured via a web interface, goes live with a single button—it's purportedly unhampered by firewalls, blocked ports, and other network roadblocks. Easy. And early adopting streamers get a nice little bonus: a month of Livestream.com premium membership—about a $350 value—is now included with a Cube purchase. [Teradek Cube]
