Cube Update: Your iPad is FINALLY a remote video monitor!

Hallelujah! The gang at Teradek has released an update to their amazing Cube that allows users to wirelessly stream live video directly to their iPad’s screen with only a 1/4 second delay! But wait… There’s more! Not only can it stream to your iPad, it can stream up to THREE iPads simultaneously (or two iPads, and a proxy server)!

I would now like to add a few additional exclamation points to further demonstrate my excessive excitement!!!! (!!!!)

When I first told you about the Cube, I focused on the instant dailies aspect of the device (which is still awesome), but I bemoaned the fact that video streamed to an iPad came with a ten second delay.  I bemoan no more!  I am bemoanless.

In order to get live video streaming to your iPad, you do have to jump through a few small hoops — setting some of the Cube’s preferences via your iPad’s web browser, and involving a couple 3rd party apps (ZeroConfSpy and oPlayer HD). No big deal, and in my opinion, totally worth it.  Perhaps a slicker, easier solution is in the works.  Either way, I’m happy.

Check out the video below to see the new streaming in action. (!)

Shang-Chi Director Directed From His iPhone

I enjoyed reading this brief ScreenRant story, so I thought I’d share it here. It describes how Destin Daniel Cretton, the director of Marvel’s Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings, was forced to direct an important scene via his iPhone while in the hospital for the birth of his child! Sadly, it doesn’t divulge the details of that unusual workflow, but it’s an excellent reminder that we’re all toting the world’s most versatile piece of filmmaking gear in our pockets and purses!

  1. Hi Juan,

    Teradek has variety of Cube models with different video input connections. I think only certain cameras can supply the Cube with the start/stop commands necessary for the Instant Dailies feature…but I’m not 100% sure on that.


  2. What I’d really like is the ability to monitor with the iPad with simple HDMI cable.
