Teradek Launches Bolt 6

The wireless-video solution taps the newly available 6GHz frequency band as well as the industry-standard 5GHz frequency spectrum.

Teradek has launched the Bolt 6 Series, a zero-delay wireless-video solution that unlocks 6GHz transmission in high-traffic environments.

“The Bolt 6 Series expands the power and performance of the zero-delay Bolt 4K family into the recently unlocked U-NII 5 frequency spectrum, offering users a wealth of untapped bandwidth while remaining fully compatible with Bolt 4K on traditional 5GHz bands,” says Greg Smokler, general manager of Cine Products at Creative Solutions. 

Bolt 6 transmits and receives over the 6GHz frequency band as well as the industry-standard 5GHz, reducing signal congestion in challenging RF environments while remaining cross-compatible across all Bolt 4K devices, including the Bolt Manager App for iOS and Android. Every Bolt 6 device will pair with every Bolt 4K device on 5GHz bands; however, a Bolt 6 TX/RX combination is required for 6GHz connectivity.

New Bolt 6 features on all models include an improved “Long Range” mode and an SDI Eye Pattern Tool to check SDI cable integrity. Bolt 6 Max models also feature integrated, flexible H antennas for increased field longevity. 

Like Bolt 4K, the Bolt 6 Series represents an ecosystem of devices optimized for different workflows. 

Bolt 6 XT features a redesigned form factor that’s smaller, lighter, cooler and quieter than its Bolt 4K cousin. Bolt 6 also features an integrated five-pin USB for a more seamless SmallHD camera-control setup. Pricing starts at $6,490.

Bolt 6 LT has a 750-5,000+' range and can operate on the 12 U-NII 5 channels. It also comes in an HDMI-only version. Pricing starts at $1,990.

Bolt 6 Monitor Modules offer ranges of 750-1,500' and integrate into SmallHD Smart 7 Series Monitors. Pricing starts at $1,890.
