Teradek unveils Bolt 4K LT and Bolt 4K RX monitor module
Teradek announces the compact Bolt 4K LT and integrated Bolt 4K RX Monitor Module, two additions to their Bolt 4K wireless HDR video platform. Powered by the 4K chipset found in the previously released Bolt 4K, Bolt 4K LT delivers significant image quality and performance enhancements to the prior HD generation of Bolt products, “at no additional cost to consumers”.
“We have seen a rising demand from studios and filmmakers for HDR monitoring on sets. Bolt 4K LT represents the culmination of a massive effort at Teradek towards delivering that functionality,” said Nicol Verheem, Creative Solutions Divisional CEO. “We’ve added considerable technology upgrades without raising the price to the end-user.”
Bolt 4K LT devices and the Bolt 4K Monitor Module are fully cross-compatible with the Bolt 4K. The Bolt 4K RX Monitor Module is a removable attachment for the SmallHD Cine 7 and 702 Touch monitors, creating an integrated wireless handheld unit. In addition to full interoperability, these devices can transmit and receive 10-bit 4:2:2 video, standardizing end-to-end HDR production workflows.
“Combined with our new 4K Production Monitors from SmallHD, we believe the 4K LT wireless line offers an affordable on-ramp to the world of 4K and HDR on-set monitoring,” said Greg Smokler, Creative Solutions VP of Product. “The ability to freely mix and match transmitters, receivers and monitor modules across any Bolt 4K model really opens up possibilities for users at all levels of production.”
Bolt 4K LT is due to launch in September 2020.
