Teradek says that the Bolt 500 is the new standard in short range zero delay wireless transmission, able to transmit visually lossless video up to 500ft with no delay.
Last August Teradek introduced its new zero delay wireless video systems that can transmit up to 1000ft and 3000ft respectively, the Bolt 1000 and Bolt 3000.The company said then that “the Bolt 1000 and 3000 feature new firmware that allows the device to achieve its maximum range and potential right out of the box, even if you’re operating in difficult environments.” And added that “reconnect times are now instantaneous following a dropped signal and each of the new models performs better under extreme conditions.” Now they extend the family with another new member, designed for shorter distances and with new features.
Bolt is a premium wireless video solution for cinematographers, broadcasters, and independent content creators. The Bolt family includes five versions: 3000, 2000, 1000, 500 and 300. Here is what the new Teradek Bolt 500 has to offer:
2 New DFS Channels
Operate interference-free more often in the USA and Europe by making use of two newly introduced DFS channels.
20% Smaller Chassis
Not just smaller, but lighter too, allowing these models to integrate into any rig unnoticed.
Reconnect times during a dropped link are now instantaneous once you move back into range.
More Robust Than Ever Before
Reach your Bolt’s full range and potential right out of the box with new software that provides the most robust wireless link we’ve ever created.
Built-In HDMI to SDI Converter
Perfect for use with MoVI and other gimbals, Bolt’s TX has a built-in HDMI to SDI converter, allowing you to connect both your on-camera monitor and video source via the same device.
All the Rest
Metadata and timecode support, 3D LUTs, dual inputs/outputs, multicast capable, and USB 3.0 GRAB Engine are all included with the new 500.
