Metadata Support Summary


With highly refined software, new wireless radios, and a redesigned chassis, these new models are the most reliable and capable monitoring solutions we have ever built. Metadata and timecode support, 3D LUTs, dual inputs/outputs, multicast capable, manual frequency selection and USB 3.0 GRAB Engine are all included on these new models but with the following new features:

  Longer Range

Transmit visually lossless
video up to 500ft
with no delay.

  20MHz Channels

Use more than twice as many Bolts in one location or avoid interference like never before.

  2 New DFS Channels

Operate interference-free
more often in the USA and Europe by making use of two newly introduced DFS channels.

  20% Smaller Chassis

Not just smaller, but lighter too, allowing these models to integrate into any rig unnoticed.

  Individual Identity

Easily identify which Bolt
TX and RX work together with removable colored top plates.

  Rapid Reconnection

Reconnect times during a dropped link are now instantaneous once you move back into range.

  Built-In HDMI to SDI Converter

Perfect for use with MoVI and other gimbals, Bolt’s TX has a built-in HDMI to SDI converter, allowing you to connect both your on-camera monitor and video source via the same device.

  More Robust
Than Ever Before

Reach your Bolt’s full range
and potential right out of
the box with new software
that provides the most robust wireless link we’ve ever created.
