How to Setup Teradek Vidiu Pro ?

We have got Teradek Vidiu Pro for a while and running some tests on Teradek Vidiu Pro for both Ant Media Server community and enterprise edition. We can say that Teradek Vidiu Pro is compatible with Ant Media Server 1.2.0+ which you can download Community Edition on github.com

The first impression about Teradek Vidiu Pro is that it’s size so small [119.38 x 76.2 x 30.48mm] and it has great features like WiFi, Ethernet, USB Modem Interfaces to connect to the Internet, HDMI input, Analog Audio Input, Web Interface, SD Card and USB disk recording, etc. It’s like an Atom Ant 😛
