Introducing a low-cost, mobile streaming solution T eradek’s new Bond enables on-location video transmission over mobile phone networks by combining multiple 3G dongles for fast, reliable upload speeds. It allows high quality video to be uploaded to the internet or to a receiver from anywhere with access to a 3G network. Based on its Cube encoder technology, Teradek’s camera- mounted device is a fraction of the cost and size of alternative solutions.  Bond is the smallest and lowest power 3G bonding solution available. With a list price of only £1,725, Bond is also the most cost effective. The new device is designed to attach to digital camcorders and can support up to five 3G or 4G cellular modems simultaneously from multiple carriers worldwide.  Richard Payne of distributor Holdan noted: “Teradek’s Bond is a real game-changer. It’s small, light and high performing. But, just as importantly, with a power consumption of less than 1 Watt and an astonishingly low price point, it is neither a drain on battery reserves nor precious production budgets.”  Like Teradek’s Cube, Bond majors on miniaturisation: it weighs a mere 170 grammes and is similar in size to a pack of playing cards. It is an ideal solution for ENG backhaul, sports broadcasts, and live events coverage.  Bond is now shipping; it is available from Holdan’s network of resellers. www.holdan.co.uk Representing Polecam in the Middle East Argosy, a leading international supplier of HD broadcast cables and studio infrastructure products, is to represent specialist broadcast camera crane manufacturer Polecam Ltd in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.    Initially Argosy will stock Polecams successful Starter Pack (PSP), a no-fuss camera crane specifically designed for use with latest-generation compact camcorders and D-SLR heads.
