The Teradek Bolt Wireless 1080p60 SDI Monitoring Transmitter & Receiver wirelessly transmits an uncompressed HD video signal in up to 1080p60 4:2:2 as far as 300 ft with zero delay. The receiver features two 3G-SDI outputs for dual monitoring. One can be used to pass the video signal to an optional Teradek Cube Encoder, which will stream the signal even further on by WiFi or Ethernet, although only in up to 1080p30.
The Bolt transmitter is capable of connecting to only one receiver. Both the transmitter and receiver feature a Lemo input for V-mount or Gold-mount batteries.
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.
Bolt transmits uncompressed video using WSDI Pro™ (5GHz), which provides a wireless range of up to 300ft 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.
Bolt transmitters are housed in a 7oz milled aluminum chassis with six 1/4"-20 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 micro USB port or its Lemo DC input.
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.
