    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 increasing 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 EngineThe 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 USB3.0 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 Universal 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.

    Does the 2000 work with multiple receivers?

    What is the price?

    Yes, all three systems are multicast capable up to 4 receivers.

    Bolt Pro 2000 w/ dual input TX (HDMI and 3G-SDI) and new RX is the same cost as the previous generation: $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 original RX cost.

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

    Thanks Michael,

    What is the cost of an additional Bolt Pro 2000 Receiver?

    Is there an upgrade from Bolt Pro Dual Receiver to Bolt Pro 2000 Dual Receiver? (we have never been happy with the current range, despite the full recent replacement of the original faulty units).

    Hey Ben,

    The new units will begin shipping in June. We decided to redesign the hardware so there has been a slight delay.

    Pricing is still not 100% finalized so the upgrade program isn't either. I will post an update soon.
