Teradek has become a bit of a force to reckon with in the world of wireless video. With NAB fast approaching the company has announce two new products that could quickly find a very useful purpose.
The Bolt 10K is a very compact video transmitter that looks to be ideal for use on drones or in other situations where long distance wireless video transmission is required.
Teradek claims that the Bolt 10K is capable of a visually lossless video feed with zero delay up to 10,000 ft in distance. In other words around 2 miles. If true this is an impressive achievement, not just for client monitoring of shots, but because it offers an opportunity to make high quality, ground based recordings as insurance.
The Bolt 10K receiver works with any Bolt 3000 system and includes an integrated panel array antenna, Gold or V-mount battery plate, a 3G-SDI output, and a 3/8” screw hole for versatile mounting.
Teradek does stress that only Bolt 3000 transmitters work with the Bolt 10K, however.
The Bolt 10K is available for shipping from March 26th with a list price of $6990.
