Teradek, LLC  |  Wireless HD Video

The Teradek Bolt is a latency-free wireless transmission system that sends 4:2:2, 1080p60 video at up to 300ft or 2000ft. Bolt comes in three varieties; the unicast Bolt, the multicast Bolt Pro, and the long range Bolt Pro 2000.

1 TX to Multiple RX

 

One of the best features of the Bolt Pro* system is its ability to transmit full 1080p60 video to 4 receivers simultaneously. Multicast enabled Bolt Pro systems allow you to mix and match HDMI and 3G-SDI receivers, which means you can connect them to anything from professional field monitors to Teradek Cube encoders.

*The Bolt Pro 2000 is multicast capable, but is currently inactive. A free firmware upgrade in the near future will unlock the feature. Additional receivers must be from the Bolt Pro 2000 line and not the original Bolt Pro.

Connectivity

 

Bolt transmits uncompressed video using WSDI Pro™ (5GHz), which provides a wireless range of up to 300ft or 2000ft and can coexist with other wireless equipment by dynamically adjusting the frequency bands used in real time. For optimal performance in challenging RF environments, Bolt systems can utilize Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) to avoid interference. As an added bonus, Bolt Pro units can pass metadata and fan control over the wireless SDI link.*

*Excludes Bolt Pro 2000

Rugged and Low Power

 

Bolt & Bolt Pro transmitters are housed in a milled aluminum chassis with multiple 1/4" mounting holes. The receiver is enclosed in a durable ABS plastic shell. The transmitter requires approximately 4W of power, while the receiver consumes only 6W. To power these units for long periods of time, Bolt ships with a Lemo to P-tap cable that can be used to connect with external power sources such as V-mount or AB Gold-mount batteries. Additionally, Bolt Pro's internal Li-Ion battery provides up to 60 minutes of run time and can be charged via its Lemo DC input.

Bolt Pro 2000 units are housed in a larger milled aluminum chassis with multiple 1/4" mounting holes on both the TX and RX. The transmitter requires 7 watts of power while the receiver uses only 6 watts. Each pair ships with a Lemo to PTap cable for the TX and your choice of an AB or V-mount battery plate on the receiver.

Bolt Meets Cube

 

Connecting a Cube encoder to Bolt's 3G-SDI loop or receiver output can result in powerful new workflows. This feature lets you to take advantage of Bolt's latency-free monitoring capabilities, while simultaneously sending Cube's compressed video feed to an iOS device, directly to the Web, or to a decoder located offsite. The best part is that Cube and Bolt do not interfere with one another so video dropouts will never be a problem.
