Meet the 888 - the Sound Devices portable mixer-recorder that’s compact and light enough to use in a bag, yet has the high channel count and power required for mobile cart productions. The 888 is the smallest portable mixer-recorder on the market that offers Dante for sending and receiving audio over Ethernet. With 8 ultra low-noise, 8-Series microphone preamplifiers, 16 channels, 20 tracks, multiple powering methods, and support for multiple USB control surfaces, the 888 can be easily tailored to your workflow. An updated processing architecture and multiple FPGAs enables the 888 to be fully routable: any physical input may be sent to any track, bus, or output.
Many features have carried over from the premium Sound Devices’ Scorpio, such as the new 8-Series preamplifier design, 2 SD card slots, internal 256GB SSD, and dual L-Mount battery charging and powering. Alternatively, power your 888 using a smart battery, NP-1 battery, or an in-line power supply via its TA4 DC input. The ultra-accurate, fully-featured timecode generator contains its own battery to hold timecode for up to four hours after power off.
Dedicated coms and slate allows for professional bi-directional communication with other crew members. Send customized mixes to the camera or crew with multiple mix buses. With the ability to record to three media simultaneously, you can turn over an SD card to production, AAC files for transcription, and keep a backup on the internal 256 GB SSD.
A built-in three band EQ may be set to either pre- or post-fade for each channel to tune each input directly on-set. Enable Dugan Automixing or MixAssist to automatically attenuate unused microphones in multi-microphone applications. Up to 16 channels can be automixed at a time.
Get the perfect fit on your cart with one of several supported USB control surfaces for remote fader and transport control. Download the companion Android app, SD-Remote, to access to transport controls, metering, and sound reports on a large touch screen. Elevate your kit with the 888 Portable Production Mixer-Recorder.
Encode an HDMI or SDI stream to H.264 in real-time for transmission with the Teradek Cube 655. With advanced onboard hardware, the Cube 655 can encode Full HD video streams using high-quality H.264 compression at up to 15 Mbps. The reduced bandwidth requirement of H.264 video over uncompressed video enables it to be streamed long distances over the web. The Cube 655 can connect to your network via a variety of interfaces. It features dual-band antennas for Wi-Fi connectivity, an Ethernet port for a wired connection, and a USB port for using a cellular modem.
The Cube 655's wireless capabilities make it great for on-set monitoring. Up to six iPads with the TeraView app can view the video feed simultaneously, preventing you from running out of on-set monitoring options for the director or clients.
Everything you need to start streaming with the Cube 655 is in the box. Video cables for connecting to an HDMI or SDI source, a power supply, antennas, an Ethernet cable, and a USB stick with TeraCentral software for easy monitoring on your PC or Mac.
Built-In Color Grading
The 33-point LUT support and Pomfort LiveGrade integration allow you to instantly apply a finished look on your video for on or off the set monitoring. LUTs can be applied to the video stream itself or controlled independently within the free TeraView iPad app.
Intuitive User Interface
The Cube 655 can be controlled by using either the built-in screen, along with button controls, or the web-based interface for easy access to advanced controls and configurations from the convenience of your computer or mobile device.
Cube's built-in SD card slot gives you the option to save high-quality backup recordings for post-event editing. Video saved to the SD card will be recorded at the same bit rate as the streaming video.
Teradek ShareLink Compatibility
Compatibility with Teradek's separately available ShareLink aggregation service allows you to use multiple network interfaces and combine the bandwidth, for more consistent higher quality streaming than a single interface might normally allow.
Built-In Test Pattern Generator
A configurable test pattern generator allows you to test your stream without connecting a video source and prevents interruptions if video sync is lost.
Communicate with your crew, even if they're half a world away. IFB (Interruptible FoldBack) allows for talkback streams to be transmitted and received via the Cube 655.
