Never Drop a Connection
Brandon Sullivan, meteorologist and avid user of streaming technology, has been storm chasing for the past 8 years, risking life and limb to capture the harshest weather in Tornado Alley. Since the inception of live streaming, his storm chasing projects have taken on a new digital form, inviting viewers to follow him into the eye of the storm. Using Sharelink, Sullivan bonds multiple network sources so he doesn’t have to worry about connectivity while capturing dynamic content in remote locations.
The Internet is really important to me when I’m out there chasing. Utilizing Sharelink allows us to use all those connections simultaneously. I don’t have to worry about it. It handles all the Internet and all the video by itself, and I get to focus on seeing the storms.

Reliable Streaming From Anywhere
Streaming from a boat in the middle of the ocean challenges cinematographer Mitch Oates to deliver a high quality video with limited bandwidth. He relies on Sharelink’s bonding capability to stream over two cellular sources: an LTE modem and an iPhone 6 hotspot. No matter where the ocean takes him, Oates is able to deliver a 720p live stream with clear video to over 100,000 dedicated viewers.
It 100% would not have worked without Sharelink. Even though the Internet connection had such a slow upload speed, the network bonding feature made it possible for us to deliver a fantastic video on Periscope. The 100,000 people who tuned in were stoked that they were watching such a high-quality video.

How do I estimate streaming data usage with Sharelink?
Monthly streaming data usage can be manually estimated by taking into account the following factors:
  • the total bitrate configured on the VidiU Pro or VidiU Go, including both the audio bitrate and the video bitrate,
  • the time duration you want to stream for each event, typically at an hourly rate,
  • the number of events per month.
The audio and video bitrate specified on Teradek encoders are listed in megabits per second (Mbps), and these values need to be converted to megabytes per second (MBps), which is the value used by mobile network carriers on their data plans.

A maximum of (6) connections can be used with the VidiU Pro at any time.

The VidiU Go supports up to a maximum of (7) connections.
