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.

The Bolt Transmitter and Receiver set can wirelessly transmit 1080p60 4:2:2 up to 300 ft with zero delay.

WSDI Pro Connectivity
Bolt transmits uncompressed video using WSDI Pro, which provides a wireless range of up to 300 ft and can coexist with other wireless equipment by dynamically adjusting the frequency bands used in real time.

P-Tap / Lemo DC for External Batteries
The transmitter and receiver both feature a Lemo DC input for external V-mount or Gold-mount batteries. Otherwise, the transmitter has a P-tap input that you can connect to a camera battery by, and an AC power supply is included for the receiver.

Rugged Design
The Bolt transmitter has a milled aluminum body, and the receiver one of ABS plastic. Both the transmitter and receiver have 1/4" mounting threads and can be attached right onto or next to the equipment you'll be using them with.

    Comments about Teradek Bolt Wireless 1080p60 SDI Monitoring Transmitter & Receiver:

    We purchased this unit, and later the 2 receiver package in hopes to use it during a live large scale event - keeping in mind the distance range limitations - with room...

    The unit works very well in a small space. It would be a great tool for a focus puller on a steadicam rig in a set environment; or for just general video assist during closed set production.

    It does not however work for things like live events. The signal drops out if you are in a large room (I am guessing it needs the walls to bounce the WiFi off of); If there are a lot of people in the room, this can cause interference.

    The signal - basically degrades - becomes blocky, then you lose audio.

    The worst part is when you come back into range - it doesn't re-gain the signal, and for us required a re-boot of the transmitter and/or receiver every time.

    It does however provide a great image, with virtually no delay (none that we could notice).

    Video Assist during a controlled video shoot, music video, film - this unit can really give you freedom.

    Relying on it to provide a consistent quality feed during a live show - even within 100 feet of the receiver (clear line of sight) - is another story.

    Lastly, the Transmitter literally feels burning hot to the touch after being on for an hour.

    In closing - we tested both a 1 Rx kit and the 2 Rx Kit - same issues with both.

    I am making the recommendation that "yes" this is a good unit - for certain applications.

        Comments about Teradek Bolt Wireless 1080p60 SDI Monitoring Transmitter & Receiver:

        We just started using 2 Bolt systems for a TV series. Worked flawlessly out of the box. Range is solid to @150ft. When we first got the systems, we did an A/B test with the Bolt and hard wire - there was ZERO difference in picture quality.This is a game changer.
