Bolt 500 XT SDI/HDMI Wireless TX

Bolt XT is Teradek's new class of 500, 1000 and 3000 ft. zero-delay video transmitters. The XT transmits and receives pristine 1080p60 video, allowing you to monitor your feeds in real-time with ultimate precision. Also included is a built-in spectrum analyzer, manual channel selection and 3D LUTs, which offer improved versatility for the most demanding workflows.

A redesigned aluminum chassis further reduces size and weight of the Bolt line while improving functionality. Each transmitter includes HDMI, 3G-SDI and looping 3G-SDI inputs, while receivers support 1x HDMI and 2x 3G-SDI outputs. Units now include several new ¼”-20 and ⅜”-16 mounting points, receivers have built-in NATO rails, and transmitters have integrated ARRI rosettes to greatly improve mounting options.

All XT units are compatible with 3rd-generation Bolt 500, 1000 & 3000 devices and Bolt LT units, making them easy to integrate into existing Bolt setups and workflows.

Product Highlights

  • Compatible with 3rd generation Bolt 500, Bolt 500 LT, Sidekick II, Focus Bolt RX, and 703 Bolt

  • Professional software features: 3D LUTs, 5GHz spectrum analyzer, manual channel selection

  • Smaller and lighter chassis design with robust mounting points (3/8” and ¼”-20)

  • Dual input (SDI + HDMI) and SDI loop out

Bolt XT

The Bolt XT satisfies the needs of the most discerning professionals, from powerful software tools and rock-solid performance to smart power options and backward compatibility. Available with a maximum range of 500ft, 1000ft, 3000ft, or 10,000ft, the new Bolt XT line offers a professional solution for every budget.

A key feature of the Bolt XT is its backward compatibility with Bolt 500, 1000, 3000, Sidekick II, and 703 Bolt, giving users more flexibility building onto their existing systems or linking with others already on set. Unlike alternative wireless video systems, Bolt XT includes a unique AES 128 encryption algorithm to protect your video footage, ensuring that only authorized receivers can connect to your transmitter.

Each transmitter includes an HDMI, 3G-SDI and looping 3G-SDI output. Receivers feature an HDMI output as well as dual 3G-SDI outputs. While wireless performance is critical on set, so are practical mounting options that ensure optimal performance and a quick set-up. With the Bolt XT line, Teradek has added an integrated NATO rail on the receiver, several 1/4”-20 and 3/8” mounting points, and an ARRI rosette on the transmitter to greatly improve available mounting options.

An all-new aluminum chassis further reduces the size and weight of the Bolt line, with receivers also allowing for integrated pass-through power. Available battery plate accessories include V- or Gold-mount, in addition to bi-directional Sony L-series or Canon LP-E6 plates on the Bolt 500 XT. Teradek has also replaced the internal antennas on the Bolt 500 XT transmitter with an external set to enhance wireless performance when operating in environments with large obstacles or heavy interference.

The Bolt XT, like the previous generation, is multicast capable up to 4 receivers and includes built-in cross conversion and Teradek’s proprietary software utilities, including a manual frequency-selection tool, 3D LUT engine, and a 5GHz spectrum analyzer to keep an eye on interference in your area.
