5GHz spectrum scanner now in beta on Bolt 1000 / 3000

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

We built a real-time 5GHz spectrum analyzer into Bolt 3000 receivers. This will be a free firmware update in the near future, but we're looking for some beta testers to give it a shot. We used it extensively at IBC this year and it came in super handy. There is no better way to quickly scan for the best channel to set your Bolt system to.

 

If you're interested in giving it a go, shoot me a private message and ill shoot you over the new firmware. It will be available for the 1000 and 500 just after its officially launched for the 3000.

That's a pretty cool feature, Mike. Would there be a possibility of having it talk to the the desktop software to render a more sophisticated real-time graph of the spectrum, so for instance a DIT could use it as a frequency analyzer without having to use other hardware?

There's a pretty cheap app for Mac called Wifi Explorer that works as a frequency analyzer.

There are bigger plans to expand this to more than just the RX, though I don't know how far they'll take it. This will go hand in hand with some simplified pairing procedures that we're working on as well. More to come after we get this firmware out of beta...
