Product Description


Live Monitoring Solution for SDI Cameras

Sphere is a four-camera 360° rig monitoring solution that features four SDI inputs. Its four USB ports offer an integrated power solution for GoPro rigs, and its stereo analog audio input allows you to embed the output of your soundboard right into the live feed.

Wireless and Internet Connectivity

Sphere connects to wireless access points and the Internet via a 10/100 Ethernet jack. To enhance the wireless range of your Sphere, Teradek recommends connecting the device to an Ubiquiti access point for a robust Wi-Fi signal up to several thousand feet.

Support for up to 8 Cameras

Should you need more than four cameras for your 360° production, a second Sphere can be daisy-chained using the device's 10/100 Ethernet port, extending the number of supported cameras to eight.

Redundant Power Inputs

Dual two-pin LEMO power inputs are provided, offering redundancy in case one supply should fail.

Sphere iOS App

Stitching Engine

Sphere's stitching engine is iOS-based and offers real-time compositing of up to eight 1080p camera feeds, allowing you and your crew to be more mobile than ever before.

Real-Time 360° Monitoring Modes

Allows you to explore your live 360° content as if you were wearing a VR headset. Move the iPad around you to visualize the experience you are creating for your audience.

Displays your 360° live footage as a single panoramic image.

Little Planet
Little Planet mode turns your 360° video into a stereographic projection, allowing you to view it as if it were a 360° orb, or a "little planet."

Live Streaming

Once you've connected your cameras to Sphere, the device compresses each feed using the H.264 codec and outputs the stream over its 10/100 Ethernet jack to a wireless access point of your choice. With a separately available streaming license, the Sphere can stream to any 360° compatible online video platform, including YouTube and Wowza, at bit rates up to 15 Mbps.

Stitching Configuration Options

The Sphere iOS application offers numerous parameters for tweaking your 360° footage to your liking. In addition to multiple lens correction options, you can adjust the image rotation and edge alignment of your stitch from the app's intuitive UI.

Color Calibration Settings

Users can calibrate each camera's white balance, tint, and color profile right from the Sphere application. If you need a quick calibration, the application can color match across all video feeds at the same time to provide a balanced image instantly.

In-App Recording

Save individual 360° snapshots and your stitched video footage directly to your iPad's internal storage in MP4 format.
