Turn your iPad into a remote video monitor for seamless streaming from cube to ios devices.

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. (!)

Just in case you missed my Mobile Filmmaking presentation at the Los Angeles Creative Pro User Group back in July, here’s a (low angle) video of the whole enchilada! It’s PACKED with apps and accessories you need to know! Check it out! And as always, if you dig it, share it!

The New GLIF tripod mount looks awesome!

UPDATE – MAY 30, 2017: Having successfully wrapped up its Kickstarter campaign, the GLIF is now available for purchase directly from the Studio Neat website! The GLIF will run you $28, while the full set with hand grip and wrist strap will set you back $55. The GLIF, one of the first iPhone camera accessories is still one of the best. And it’s about to get even better! Just in case you’ve been avoiding every article ever written about mobile filmmaking, the GLIF is a pocket-sized tripod mount for your iPhone.

  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.
