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 its 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 😛
So far this post about is a generic setup of Teradek’s Vidiu Pro and use with Ant Media Server. Nevertheless, Teradek has powerful iOS apps, we do not cover these apps in this post.
OK. Let’s start by powering the Teradek Vidiu Pro

Your device configuration is OK now.
Connect the HDMI cable between HDMI source (camera, television or computer) and Teradek Vidiu Pro HDMI.
Wait until to see the “Ready” text appears on the right top of Teradek Vidiu Pro’s LED screen. Then press “Start/Stop” button on the device, a message appears on the device asking confirmation about starting the broadcast. Press “Yes” and then broadcasting starts.
