Teradek News from NAB including New Bolt Pro Transmitters & Receivers, T-Rax, Serv and Cube Pro with Timecode Buddy
New Bolt Pro Transmitters and Receivers: 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 4:22 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 augmented. 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 augmented 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 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 augmented 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 Engine The 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 USB 3.0 outputs, users can monitor and simultaneously ingest Bolt’s uncompressed 10bit RGB video feed directly into a DlT 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. T- Rax T-Rax is an enterprise rack mount solution for IP based digital video work?ows. At just 2RU, T-Rax allows users to add or remove a variety of Teradek solutions on the fly, including H.264 encoders and decoders, bonded network transmission solutions, and software platforms such as Sputnik and Core. The system supports any combination of up to 8 hot-swappable cards that can be tailored to your unique requirements at any time. T-Rax will be compatible with next generation technology such as H.265 and offers a uni?ed control interface so users can quickly configure each card from a single location. T-Rax also includes a 2.8” graphical display so you can keep an eye on the status of your broadcast at all times and offers redundant power and Ethernet connections for added peace of mind. Cube Pro with Timecode Buddy The Cube Pro with Timecode Buddy was engineered to improve the wireless video work?ow of the most demanding camera operators in cinema live events and news gathering. As the latest H.264 encoder from the award-winning Cube family, Cube Pro + TCB offers higher bit rates over WiFi, support for up to 10 simultaneous iPad connections, and a super accurate standalone timecode transceiver with TC IN, TC OUT and Genlock Out runnin on a proprietary 900MHz long range signal. With such versatility in a single device the Cube Pro + TCB gives every cameraman the freedom to tailor their wireless video needs to any project. Serv The Teradek Serv is a camera-back or table top wireless video transmitter that offers real-time monitoring on up to 10 smartphones and tablets at very low latency. Serv operates over 2.4/5GHz WiFi and comes in both AB and V-mount varieties making it suitable for most professional camera rigs. The device offers an HD-SDI input and supports streaming in both 720p and 480p. For multi-camera setups, Serv is compatible with the free TeraView monitoring application for iOS, allowing users to view up to 4 live Serv or Cube streams at one time. Get the Look You Want The latest TeraCentral and TeraView applications for iOS and Android devices now support color grading using industry standard or customer 3D Lookup Tables (LUT), allowing you to transform your flat live video feed from the camera into a lifelike or custom post-production look. Even better, you can synchronize any custom 3D LUT filetype from your DIT cart in real time simply by connecting your smartphone or tablet to the same IP network video village utilizes, and running our LUT sync utility. The new TeraView also support QuadView, allowing you to see as many as four cameras simultaneously in real time on any current tablet computer like an Apple iPad or Samsung Galaxy Pro.
