Teradek Unveils Ace 500 Wireless Video System

Teradek has introduced the Ace 500, described as an affordable zero-delay wireless video system for budget-conscious videographers. It’s built with the same wireless technology found in the firm’s Bolt product line.

Ace 500 transmits uncompressed 1080p60 video up to 500ft. line-of-sight at less than 1ms delay. What makes Ace 500 more versatile than its competitors is its compatibility with Teradek’s Bolt ecosystem, allowing users to transmit and receive video from any Bolt 500 or SmallHD FOCUS 500 transmitter/receiver. Ace 500’s transmitter and receiver are compact and lightweight, and feature rugged aluminum and ABS plastic enclosures.

The transmitter has an HDMI input, while the receiver offers an HDMI output. Both the TX and RX are powered by a 3.5mm barrel connector, with optional battery plates available in BP-9, LP-E6, NP-F, and BP-U versions. 

"What makes Ace 500 more versatile than the competition is its compatibility with Teradek’s Bolt lineup, allowing users to transmit and receive video from any Bolt 500 or SmallHD FOCUS 500 device," the firm states. Ace 500 transmits uncompressed 1080p60 video up to 500ft. line-of-sight with less than 1ms delay.

The units feature HDMI input/output and can be powered via the 3.5mm barrel input using either a PTap/2pin power source or one of several battery plate accessories. 

The Teradek Ace 500 set will be available mid-June and a transmitter+receiver set will retail for $999.95.
