The SmallHD FOCUS Bolt 500 RX Wireless Monitor combines SmallHD's popular FOCUS monitor with Teradek's Bolt 500 wireless receiver and Teradek's Sidekick receiver, all in a single unit. Using the built-in receiver, the Focus Bolt can receive uncompressed 10-bit 4:2:2 HD video from a Teradek Bolt 500, Bolt 500 LT, Bolt 500 XT transmitters, a SmallHD FOCUS Bolt 500 TX, from up to 500' away, line-of-sight, as well as the Bolt 1000 and Bolt 3000 transmitters. Comfortable rubberized handgrips are included along with a neck strap, so you can comfortably hold onto the monitor as you roam around the set. An L-series battery kit for powering the monitor, cable clips, matte and glossy screen protectors, a cleaning cloth, and a micro-HDMI to HDMI adapter are also included.

Display-wise, the FOCUS Bolt 500 RX is based off the same display and I/O as the well-regarded standard FOCUS models. The 800 cd/m² bright touchscreen 1280 x 720 IPS LCD panel can be viewed in daylight and can be driven by either the single micro-HDMI input or the wireless input. Using the intuitive Swipe OS, you can turn on various monitoring tools like waveform, false color, and vectorscope, as well as focusing aids like peaking, with a tap. If your camera outputs UHD 4K over HDMI, the FOCUS will support that input resolution as well as HD and SD inputs. The wireless input only supports up to HD resolutions. At the rear of the monitor, a single NP-F battery bay accepts the included L-series battery for power.

Swipe OS
Built on SmallHD's intuitive PageBuilder OS, Swipe OS offers the same intuitiveness of a graphical user interface (GUI), though with touchscreen navigation. Rather than have confusing menus, this GUI allows you to selectively apply monitoring tools such as waveform, vectorscope, and focusing aids to up to 12 different "pages". Using the touchscreen, swipe through different preset pages and toggle monitoring tools on or off with ease.
