SmallHD and Teradek have combined their talents on the SmallHD 703 Bolt Wireless Director’s Monitor, a device which allows videographers to wander a sound stage or location untethered while viewing an HD monitor with a stereo audio headphone output.
“Our clients have long been requesting a monitor of SmallHD’s caliber that’s cable-free, so it made perfect sense to partner with Teradek,” said Wes Phillips, SmallHD CEO and co-founder.
The 703 Bolt combines SmallHD’s daylight viewable seven-inch, 1920x1080p display, with a built-in Teradek Bolt receiver. The receiver is compatible with Teradek Bolt 500, 1000 or 3000 transmitters.
The system can receive and display video from as far away as 300 feet from the transmitter. Powered by a single Anton Bauer or V-mount battery pack, the monitor can be viewed and receive signals for over four hours on a single 90 watt-hour battery.
SmallHD’s wireless director’s monitor is built with a milled aluminum frame with a Gorilla Glass screen. Ready to go, the system measures just 8.4 by 4.8 by 1.21- inches, not including antennas. It weighs 4.35 pounds, including the 90 watt-hour battery and handles. The included handles are contoured with an ergonomic rubberized coating.
Delivered with SmallHD’s OS3 operating system, the monitor can display two input sources simultaneously for A/B cam monitoring. It provides the ability to quickly access and organize screen captures and other images on an SD card by showing a thumbnail preview of each image file. Images can now be previewed with or without a video signal.
If wired configuration is preferred, the monitor can handle two SDI inputs simultaneously or a SDI input and SDI output.
The 703 Bolt is available directly from SmallHD at an introductory price of $3499.
