IRVINE, Calif.–()–Teradek, the world leader in compact HD H.264 video encoders and accompanying transmission systems, today announced the Teradek Bolt™, the newest addition to their award-winning line of wireless video transmission systems. Bolt is a Wireless SDI Pro™ transmitter and receiver set that transmits zero delay uncompressed HD video at full 1080p60 4:2:2 fidelity.
“We’re very excited about the potential Bolt brings to large and small productions alike”
“We’re very excited about the potential Bolt brings to large and small productions alike,” said Nicol Verheem, CEO of Teradek. “While our Cube encoder is very popular and changed the landscape for video assist and Internet streaming, there has always been a small niche that we didn’t serve; those that truly need zero delay systems such as the 1st ACs. We designed Bolt to be the most compact and affordable zero latency HD-SDI transmitter available so that users can benefit from untethered shooting of up to 300 feet.”
Bolt is made up of a compact milled T6061 aluminum transmitter and an equally small receiver made of durable ABS plastic. The transmitter comes with a 3G-SDI input, an HD-SDI loop-through, numerous 1/4″ 20 holes for mounting, internal Li-Ion battery, and a Lemo DC input for long term power from any 6-18V battery or DC supply. The receiver offers dual 3G-SDI outputs, allowing simultaneous monitoring as well as connecting to other Teradek systems.
Bolt can transmit uncompressed full HD video at up to 300ft and can coexist with other wireless networks by dynamically adjusting the frequency bands used in real time. Each transmitter can feed video to up to 256 receivers simultaneously without any degradation in video quality. Users can output the video from a Bolt receiver into a Teradek Cube for additional workflow enhancements such as proxy recording, Internet streaming, and monitoring on iPads and iPhones.
Bolt is expected to ship in early Q4 2012 for $1,990 and will be showcased along with the Company’s other products at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC), from September 7-11, 2012 at Stand 9.C25.
