Wireless Video Refined

Bolt transmits visually lossless 4:2:2 video over the unlicensed 5GHz band at less than 1 millisecond of delay. Bolt’s new firmware ensures your system reaches its full potential right out of the box. We’ve also improved reconnect times so your wireless link is restored instantly when you come back into range.

Reliable Transmission in Any Environment

Operate more than twice as many wireless systems at one location or evade heavy interference. With Bolt 3000, you can transmit over 20MHz channels for a more robust signal in challenging RF conditions.

*20MHz channels allow you to operate more wireless systems at once in a single location and offer a more robust wireless link in challenging RF conditions. However, audio transmission, as well as interlaced, PSF, and 1080p60/50 frame rates are not currently supported.

Apply the look you’re after directly to your wireless video feed using Bolt’s integrated 3D LUT technology. Upload your own LUTs using the free Bolt Manager software or select from a number of built-in presets using Bolt’s OSD.

Cut Through the Interference

The Panel Array Antenna is your go-to solution for cutting through wireless interference in crowded environments. When attached to a Bolt 1000 or 3000, the antenna provides an extremely robust directional signal that will ensure your signal arrives uninterrupted.

Built-In HDMI to SDI Converter

Perfect for use with MoVI and other gimbals, Bolt’s TX features a built-in HDMI to SDI converter, allowing you to connect both your on-camera monitor and video source via the same device.

The Bolt Identity

To better identify which systems are paired on set, a removable top plate on Bolt’s TX and RX can be swapped out for a colorful anodized one.

Built Like a Tank

Bolt is housed in a hardened aluminum chassis designed to withstand years of abuse in both extremely hot and cold conditions. Both the TX and RX feature 1⁄4”-20 holes for mounting to cameras and monitors as well as 2-pin Lemo connectors for power. Unique to Bolt 1000 and 3000, a built-in OLED on the RX allows you to quickly configure the system as well as apply 3D LUTs at the touch of a button.
