Teradek Bolt 4K now shipping

Teradek’s Bolt 4K is finally shipping. The world’s first professional 4K latency-free wireless image transmission system was unveiled at NAB back in April. It was supposed to start shipping in June, but it was delayed by a few months.

Teradek claims that the Bolt 4K delivers 8x the performance of current wireless video systems, including their own Bolt XT. The 4K’s patented RF design can transmit HD and 4K resolutions, even in tough RF environments. Teradek claims that the system has instantaneous reconnection times if you experience a rare dropout.

Bolt 4K is the first 4K HDR wireless video system providing uncompressed, zero-latency (<1ms) transmission. Unique to Bolt 4K is interoperability, allowing any model range to transmit and receive from the other (i.e. a Bolt 4K 750 is compatible with a Bolt 4K 1500).

Bolt 4K transmits 10-bit, 4:2:2 HDR video at a range of up to 1,500 feet line-of-sight over the unlicensed 5GHz band, and can multicast to 6 receivers simultaneously.

Like Teradek’s existing Bolt devices, Bolt 4K offers the industry’s best protection against prying eyes with AES-256 encryption and RSA 1024 key pairing. Combined, these two technologies ensure nobody can decrypt your wireless feed or connect another receiver to your system without explicit authorization.

The Bolt 4K is HDR compliant with HLG, PQ, and HDR-10 standards, and it offers extended camera metadata support, like start / stop flags, timecodes, and other ancillary data.

Teradek also has a free Bolt iOS application, so you can manage all of the parameters of the Bolt 4K from the convenience of your iPhone or iPad. It allows you to pair your receiver and transmitter, apply custom 3D LUTs, and take advantage of the built-in 5GHz Spectrum Analyzer and Wireless Health analysis tool.
