Teradek has introduced the 7" Wave monitor, which specializes in live streaming and combines several functions under one roof. The Teradek Wave can not only display the input of a camera via HDMI, compress it in AVC/H.264 and stream it live in a maximum quality of 1080p60, but also record the input internally on an SD card, transmit the output to multiple destinations simultaneously and use multiple connections in parallel. Streaming is possible to platforms like YouTube, Facebook and Vimeo as well as to user-defined destinations via RTMP(S).

The Teradek Wave is operated via its 7" touch screen, which can be read even in daylight thanks to its high brightness of 1,000 nits. It (or alternatively the iOS Teradek Wave app) is used to monitor the live transmission and set the streaming parameters. The live stream can be transmitted with a bandwidth of 250 kbps to 15 Mbit/s via WLAN, Gigabit Ethernet, smartphones or via mobile modems connected via USB.
A practical feature for mobile setups is the option to not only draw power via USB-C, but also by means of two hot-swappable (i.e. hot-swappable) Sony L-series batteries (which also function as a backup in case of power outages when in mains operation). With the help of the new Teradek FlowOS operating system, future streaming events can also be prepared via Smart Event Creator.
