Hey what are your guys thoughts on this wireless video system? Can it only do psf? For the tx and Rx ( no array) is it worth $4500?

Hey John,

 

The 1st generation Bolt 2000 cannot do PSF, but does support typical progressive and interlaced resolutions and frame rates (compare to the modern units). While the 1st generation was a great product for its time, we have done a lot of development on the platform, making our newer systems far more robust, feature-rich, and lightweight. 

 

$4500 is a good price and if you don't plan to push it to its limits, i'd say it will treat you well. These systems will also work with the 1st generation Sidekick, though the pairing process can take a bit of time since we had to retroactively implement it into this older device. 

 

All in all, if you can increase your budget slightly, try to get a 2nd generation Bolt 2000. However, if budget doesn't permit that, I think you'll be generally happy with the 1st gen. 

 

Just my 2 cents.

Mike, I'm also using a Gen 1 Bolt 2000, and it does work well,

Funny enough it will pass PSF on the sidekick , but will ghost on the old receiver.

Just yesterday we had an issue with the transmitter, which has suddenly stopped passing signal on the BNC ,SDI pass through  circuit.

Unit is still transmitting as per normal, but I'm wondering how much af a nightmare it is to get that fixed.

if i want to keep the sidekick , what are my options for compatabilty, ? i understand the 3000 and sidekick are not compatible, but the newer gen 2, 2000 is? AN d yes pairing the sidekick to the gen one is possible, but it is challenging.

Hey Brad,

 

It can be fixed, but honestly, you might be better off just moving to the 2nd generation 2000, which will preserve compatibility with Sidekick 1. We might have a couple leftover here. Shoot an email to Kyle@teradek.com -- he will be able to fill you in. 

 

As you mentioned, the newer 1000 and 3000 models will not work with Sidekick 1. Sorry about that!
