For NAB 2014, Teradek is releasing 3 new transmitters and 3 new receivers for the popular Bolt family of zero delay wireless video transmission products. Like previous models, the new Bolt Pro systems offer the same great uncompressed, zero delay 10bit 4:2:2 video transmission over the unlicensed 5GHz band.

Bolt Pro 300 TX

The Bolt Pro 300 is the latest update to the best selling Bolt Pro line, offering both HDMI and 3G-SDI inputs and an improved chassis design that runs cooler. The 300 model maintains internal antennas, which cannot be modified.

 

Bolt Pro 600 TX

The Bolt Pro 600 uses a new RF design that extends the transmission range up to 600ft line of sight. The device can also be outfitted with higher gain antennas that will provide a more resilient wireless link when using longer distances. Best of all, the 600 model includes both an HDMI and 3G-SDI input so you’ll be able to use it on just about any production.

 

Bolt Pro 2000 TX

The Bolt Pro 2000 increases the range all the way up to to 2000ft line of sight and includes both HDMI and 3G-SDI inputs so it can function on any modern camera rig. Like the 600 model, Bolt Pro 2000 can also be outfitted with high gain antennas for increased range and resiliency.

 

Bolt Pro 300 RX

The new 300 model receiver offers a fan-less design that runs absolutely silent while remaining cooler than previous Bolt systems. The device has both an HDMI and 3G-SDI output, a LEMO power connector, and internal antennas.

 

Bolt Pro 600 and 2000 RX

The new receiver for the Bolt Pro 600 and 2000 models is half the size and weight of the previous long range receiver and offers both HDMI and 3G-SDI outputs and multiple RP-SMA antenna connections for increased range and resiliency. The device has also been updated with an LCD, allowing you to check the status of your wireless link and pair additional Bolt systems when you’re out in the field.

 

Bolt Pro 600 & 2000 RX with Patent-Pending GRAB Video Engine
The Bolt Pro 600 and 2000 support the optional patent-pending GRAB video engine, which turns the Bolt receiver into the world’s first wireless video capture card. With both 3G-SDI and USB 3.0 outputs, users can monitor and simultaneously ingest Bolt’s uncompressed 10bit RGB video feed directly into a DIT Cart, NLE computer or live production switcher with no added delay or further conversion required. Since the GRAB engine supports the ubiquitous USB 3.0 Video Class, your Bolt Pro receiver appears like a built-in video source to your software and will work in any Windows or Mac applications that support video.

Bolt Pro 2000 w/ dual input TX (HDMI and 3G-SDI) and new RX is the same cost as it is now: $7990

 

Bolt Pro 600 is TBA, though it will be priced between the Bolt Pro 300 and Bolt Pro 2000.

 

Bolt Pro 300 w/ dual input (HDMI and 3G-SDI) and new RX is also TBA. Price is likely to be $2990. Ships this summer.

 

The new GRAB Engine receiver is also TBA, though it should not be far from the standard 600 & 2000 model RX cost.

 

We are evaluating upgrade paths. These will be announced shortly.

This sounds fantastic Mike!
You guys are killing it at Teradek.
Hoping for some sort of backwards compatibility or upgradability from original BOLT users.

the Bolt 600 needs to be priced under 4K to 5K to be a "no brainer", since we are not getting any more rental for it. The Bolt 2000 is clearly a specialty item and priced accordingly...

Mike, any other performance based changes represented with these models? I assume based on your recent response regarding the long re-pair time after power interruption, that will be the same here?

Performance-wise, the 2000 should operate similarly to the previous model. The boot up time is an issue with Amimon's chipset firmware and we've been doing our absolute best to get them to fix it. We'll be sure to bring it up with them again at NAB next week.

Guess I should have waited before I bought my Bolt Pro last week.

They look like terrific products.

Jamie, if you purchased directly from Teradek I understand they have a 30 return policy.

 

So The Bolt 2000 has been out for a whole 2-3 months and it is now outdated? Exchange policy, Mike?

Lawrence,

 

The Bolt 2000 is not out of date. The same chip/board in that unit is the same in the current unit - we just updated the chassis. In fact, the TX is almost identical, except it now has dual inputs (HDMI + 3G-SDI) instead of only 3G-SDI. 

 

We are evaluating trade in and upgrades programs and should have more info after next week.

 

As a heads up, I'm going to be traveling to Vegas today for NAB so I apologize for any delayed responses.

Lawrence;

I opted for the Bolt Pro not the 2000 realizing that I wasn't going to make my money back because of how productions are beating down prices.  The 600 sounds like the perfect compromise and maybe the 30 day thing is just the incentive to make the change.  Unless Teradek develops other options.... which would make them one of the better manufacturers in this business they call Steadicam.  I have a monitor, actually several that are not upgradable and virtually worthless on the marketplace because of that.

Either astounding quality (PRO, XCS) or upgradable product (one hopes Teradek) makes a company worth coming back to time and again.

And truth be told, Mike has been a pretty good representative of the company.  He addresses issues quickly and seems very proactive.  Lets see what happens with the new product line and tradeins.

Jamie
