Debuting at NAB 2019, the Teradek Ace 500 in an affordable zero-delay wireless video system for budget-conscious videographers. Will be available mid-June starting at $999.
Teradek announce at NAB 2019 the Bolt 4K, the first 4K HDR wireless video system providing uncompressed, zero-latency transmission, a product that will be available next Summer. The revolutionary Bolt 4K system defines, says the company, “a whole new category of wireless video systems. The groundbreaking technology, found exclusively inside Bolt 4K, offers 8x the reliability of previous HD models, 1.5x more range, and superior image quality.”
Now, the Teradek Ace is also a zero-delay wireless video system, but it’s designed to all those who do not need 4K and will live well with a system that delivers uncompressed 1080p60 video at up to 500 ft. with zero delay. Built, says the company, with the same reliable wireless technology found in the industry-standard Bolt product line, the Ace 500 offers an ultralight, streamlined experience at a more accessible price point.
Use it with a SmallHD monitor
“Ace 500 was designed for independent creatives beginning to incorporate wireless video into their workflows, or for those operating within strict budgets who still need a reliable video link,” explained Greg Smokler, VP Products for Teradek.
Ideal for budget-conscious videographers, the Teradek Ace 500 can be paired with different monitors. Teradek suggests users can pair the Ace with SmallHD FOCUS monitors for an all-in-one handheld wireless monitoring solution. Ace transmitters can be paired with FOCUS RX, while Ace receivers can be paired with a FOCUS TX.
A versatile Teradek solution
Ace 500 transmits uncompressed 1080p60 video up to 500ft. line-of-sight with less than 1ms delay. The units feature HDMI input/output and can be powered via the 3.5mm barrel input using either a PTap/2pin power source or one of several battery plate accessories available.
What makes Ace 500 more versatile than the competition is its compatibility with Teradek’s Bolt ecosystem, allowing users to transmit and receive video from any Bolt 500 or SmallHD FOCUS 500 transmitter/receiver. Ace is also unique due to its compact and lightweight form factor. The transmitter weighs just 126g while the receiver weighs 146g, making them perfect for gimbals and camera rigs of any size.
The Teradek Ace 500 will be available mid-June and a transmitter/receiver set will retail for $999.00.
