Hi Guys, We've introduced two new Bolt systems today: the Bolt 1000 and 3000. The website sums up what the new capabilities are (and how the specs compare to our current systems), but the short story is: Longer Range Now up to 3000ft (1000ft for the Bolt 1000) 20MHz Channels Available only on the 3000, 20MHz channels allow you to operate more than twice as many Bolts at one location (provided RF conditions permit). It also allows you to avoid heavy interference since these channels use less bandwidth. The drawback is that the PSF, interlaced, and 1080p60/50 are not currently supported in this mode - we are working on a software fix for it. 2 New DFS Channels Even more spectrum to transmit over in the USA and Europe 20% Smaller Chassis The TX is lighter and a good deal smaller than the current systems. The RX is the same size and a little lighter. Bolt Identity The TX and RX now have colored caps that can be swapped in and out, allowing you to more easily identity which units are paired together while on set. Rapid Reconnection Reconnect times have been greatly improved - nearly instantaneous once you come back into range. This goes hand in hand with all of the work we've done to the firmware to make the system rock solid. Built-in HDMI to SDI converter You can connect both your on-camera monitor and your video source via the Bolt TX (HDMI in, SDI Loop Out to monitor). This was not possible on previous versions of Bolt. New Firmware We've spent a lot of time refining how our software works to ensure these units hit their full range right out of the box. The wireless link has been greatly improved so it should be much more resilient in tougher conditions. Metadata All of the features found on our current systems is also be available on these new models. New Bolt models come in SDI only and Dual (HDMI + 3G-SDI) varieties. Pricing starts at $9490 for Bolt 3000 SDI and $5490 for Bolt 1000 SDI. Shipping now. Let me know if you guys have any questions.
For NAB 2014, Teradek is releasing 3 new transmitters and 3 new receivers for the popular Bolt family of zero delay wireless video transmission products. Like previous models, the new Bolt Pro systems offer the same great uncompressed, zero delay 10bit 4:2:2 video transmission over the unlicensed 5GHz band. Click for PDF Brochure Bolt Pro 300 TX The Bolt Pro 300 is the latest update to the best selling Bolt Pro line, offering both HDMI and 3G-SDI inputs and an improved chassis design that runs cooler. The 300 model maintains internal antennas, which cannot be modified. Bolt Pro 600 TX The Bolt Pro 600 uses a new RF design that extends the transmission range up to 600ft line of sight. The device can also be outfitted with higher gain antennas that will provide a more resilient wireless link when using longer distances. Best of all, the 600 model includes both an HDMI and 3G-SDI input so you’ll be able to use it on just about any production. Bolt Pro 2000 TX The Bolt Pro 2000 increases the range all the way up to to 2000ft line of sight and includes both HDMI and 3G-SDI inputs so it can function on any modern camera rig. Like the 600 model, Bolt Pro 2000 can also be outfitted with high gain antennas for increased range and resiliency. Bolt Pro 300 RX The new 300 model receiver offers a fan-less design that runs absolutely silent while remaining cooler than previous Bolt systems. The device has both an HDMI and 3G-SDI output, a LEMO power connector, and internal antennas. Bolt Pro 600 and 2000 RX The new receiver for the Bolt Pro 600 and 2000 models is half the size and weight of the previous long range receiver and offers both HDMI and 3G-SDI outputs and multiple RP-SMA antenna connections for increased range and resiliency. The device has also been updated with an LCD, allowing you to check the status of your wireless link and pair additional Bolt systems when you’re out in the field. Bolt Pro 600 & 2000 RX with Patent-Pending GRAB Video Engine The Bolt Pro 600 and 2000 support the optional patent-pending GRAB video engine, which turns the Bolt receiver into the world’s first wireless video capture card. With both 3G-SDI and USB 3.0 outputs, users can monitor and simultaneously ingest Bolt’s uncompressed 10bit RGB video feed directly into a DIT Cart, NLE computer or live production switcher with no added delay or further conversion required. Since the GRAB engine supports the ubiquitous USB 3.0 Video Class, your Bolt Pro receiver appears like a built-in video source to your software and will work in any Windows or Mac applications that support video.
I know you guys like zero delay systems, but Serv offers a whole new experience for on-set monitoring. The Teradek Serv is a groundbreaking camera-back and tabletop HD-SDI transmitter that allows your clients and production staff to view every shot in real-time on their smartphones and tablets. Serv supports up to 10 connections at a single time and transmits both HD and SD video & audio in perfect sync over dual band WiFi. Since Serv utilizes WiFi networks, you can easily extend its range by adding any standard dual band router to your setup. But what about latency on my phone or tablet? Don’t sweat it. Serv transmits at just 4 frames of delay and is compatible with Teradek’s TeraView application, which lets you view and record up to 4 live feeds simultaneously on your iPad or Samsung Galaxy Pro Tablet at the same 4 frame latency. But TeraView must cost something, right? Nope! Its absolutely free. The application also supports 3D LUT filetypes, allowing you to transform your live video feeds into a gorgeous post-production look. Even better, you can load any custom 3D LUT filetype by connecting your Serv and smartphone or tablet to the same IP network video village utilizes. Serv will be showcased along with our other products at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), from April 7-10, 2014 at Booth C8218.
