Teradek's New App Turns Your iPad into a Director's Monitor

The monitor giant doubles down on wireless technology.

Teradek made their first announcement from NAB earlier this morning and it's a doozy. The three new products they've revealed make it evident they're trying to simplify the wireless monitoring workflow for your entire crew.

The Serv Platform

Teradek's Serv

Teradek's new Serv platform brings HD real-time video monitoring to iPhones and iPads over WiFi. What's most impressive is at just 4 frames of delay, every critical member of your crew can view what is being shot without crowding around video village or requiring a heavy director’s monitor kit.

The Serv and Serv Pro can be mounted on your camera or at video village to offer up to 300ft of range using built-in WiFi access points. The HDMI-only Serv model supports up to 4 iOS devices at one time, while the dual-input Serv Pro can stream to more than 10 iOS devices in high definition.


In tandem with Serv, Teradek developed VUER, a free iOS application that gives users insight into live video feeds.  VUER contains a built-in histogram, false color, focus peaking, waveform monitor and vectorscope as well as a frame grab and compare tool, anamorphic de-squeeze and integration with Pomfort LiveGrade (LUTs).

For multi-camera productions, the VUER app can support up to 4 live video feeds from any combination of Serv and Cube devices. 

VUER is available on the App Store now.


Teradek's Link

Finally, to connect Serv and VUER with maximum range and reliability, Teradek designed Link, a 802.11ac WiFi access point housed in an aluminum chassis that fits onto DIT carts, light stands, and just about anywhere on set. Link has a range of up to 1000ft and can also act as a bonded network router.
