The Bolt 1000 Set

With highly refined software, new wireless radios, and a redesigned chassis, these new models are the most reliable and capable monitoring solutions we have ever built. Metadata and timecode support, 3D LUTs, dual inputs/outputs, multicast capable (1 Transmitter can multicast up to 4 Receivers), manual frequency selection and USB 3.0 GRAB Engine are all included on these new models but with the following new features:

Longer Range

Transmit visually lossless video up to 1000ft with no delay.

20MHz Channels

Use more than twice as many Bolts in one location or avoid interference like never before.

2 New DFS Channels

Operate interference-free more often in the USA and Europe by making use of two newly introduced DFS channels.

20% Smaller Chassis

Not just smaller, but lighter too, allowing these models to integrate into any rig unnoticed.

Individual Identity

Easily identify which Bolt TX and RX work together with removable colored top plates.

Rapid Reconnection

Reconnect times during a dropped link are now instantaneous once you move back into range.

Built-In HDMI to SDI Converter

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

More Robust Than Ever Before

Reach your Bolt’s full range and potential right out of the box with new software that provides the most robust wireless link we’ve ever created.

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.

Smaller, Lighter, and Even More Rugged

The Bolt 1000 and 3000 transmitters are 20% smaller than previous systems and lighter too. We’ve also improved their resilience in high heat conditions so that they operate flawlessly all the way up to 130F.

Sidekick II: Universal Bolt Receiver

Compatible with Bolt 500, 1000, and 3000, the 300ft Sidekick II is the perfect solution for a director’s monitor kit. With an SDI output, support for timecode and start/stop flags, and a built-in test pattern generator, this universal receiver is the most affordable way to monitor a Bolt feed on set.

More Channels to Transmit Over

Bolt also offers manual frequency control so your crew can carefully manage your wireless workflow wherever you’re shooting. The Bolt 3000 can operate on 2 new DFS channels, allowing interference-free video transmission in more environments than ever before.

Transmit to Multiple Receivers

All Bolt models are multicast capable up to 4 receivers of the same range at the same time. This means you can send your video feed to monitors, switchers, recorders, and even Teradek Cubes simultaneously with no loss in quality or added delay.

Built-in Cross Conversion

Every Bolt model supports real-time standards and cross conversion from TX to RX, allowing you to automatically convert resolution, frame rate, and inputs.outputs (HDMI / 3G-SDI) without any additional hardware.

Metadata & Time Code Support

All 3G-SDI Bolt models support metadata, timecode, and start/stop flags from many camera manufacturers, including RED, ARRI, Canon, Sony, and Panasonic.

3D LUT Integration

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.

Forget About Capture Cards

Bolt’s USB 3.0 GRAB Engine allows you to ingest a Bolt feed directly into a computer or your DIT cart without any added delay or loss of quality.

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.

The Panel Antenna Array

The Teradek Array is a 5GHz MIMO panel antenna designed for use with Beam, Bolt 600, 1000, 2000, 3000 Receivers (Bolt Transmitters, Bolt 300 and Sidekick are not supported). The Array offers a more resilient wireless transmission, especially in challenging RF conditions, by focusing the signal and reducing interference. As a result, you may achieve a boost in the reception range but it will not be above the maximum range.

Features

  • Focuses the wireless signal and reduces interference to achieve a boost in reception range (but not above max range of Bolt set)
  • Composed of 3x16 dBi and 2x14 dBi antennas using 5.1-5.8 GHz MIMO
  • Small, Lightweight and made from UV-protected plastic with aluminum alloy
