Teradek Bolt 4K MAX joins Bolt 4K 750 and Bolt 4K 1500 that were announced earlier this year. The Bolt 4K MAX is the most fully-equipped Bolt transmitter yet. Bolt 4K MAX can transmit 4K HDR video wirelessly—in real-time—over distances up to 5000 ft (1500 m) in normal operation and up to 10,000 ft (3000 m) in Broadcast Mode.
Living up to the max maximum potential in its name, Bolt 4K MAX is packed full of new options, including the ability to:
• up-convert or down-convert resolutions that are output from each individual receiver (as needed).
• transmit to unlimited receivers in Broadcast Mode.
• improve the system’s performance in congested areas with the option of a Fixed Frequency Mode.
The sharpness and color fidelity transmitted by the Bolt 4K devices are a leap up from previous models—a revelation even when transmitting HD video from 4K MAX.
Improved sharpness of the new 4K MAX is sure to please focus pullers straining their eyes looking at monitors being fed by earlier technology.
Phil Holland wrote recently, “The Bolt 4K more accurately reproduces details, better performance around high frequency detail, and certainly a less jaggy visualization of image noise and is much closer to a straight cabled SDI connection.”
The free iOS and Android Bolt 4K app makes configuring and pairing the devices quick and easy via Bluetooth.
