Teradek introduced three new COLR solutions including (left to right) COLR Lite, COLR duo and COLR pro.
At the recent 2016 NAB Show, Teradek demonstrated wireless video devices for remote video capture, camera control, real-time monitoring, color correction and webcasting. All were designed and manufactured in the USA.
Vitec Videocom Group company Teradek showed their wide spectrum of professional wireless solutions at the 2016 NAB Show, including transmitters Bolt, Beam, and COLR, encoders Cube, VidiU, VidiU Pro, VidiU Mini and CLiP for streaming iOS and Android devices, enterprise encoders T-Rax, and Slice, Bond for bonding streams over multiple network connections, and the Core cloud-based fleet management system.
The company also introduced several new products, including some new COLR solutions. COLR is a real-time LUT box, camera control bridge, and HDMI/SDI cross-converter in one tiny package. COLR integrates with Pomfort LiveGrade Pro, allowing DITs and colorists to give everyone the right look.
The COLR duo is an upgrade to the original COLR solution with a second 3G-SDI output.
COLR integrates with Pomfort LiveGrade Pro, giving you fine control of your looks over Wi-Fi, Ethernet, or via USB. Looks can be saved directly to COLR, and LiveGrade supports multiple simultaneous devices. COLR supports nearly every camera signal on the market, from GoPro to ALEXA. RAW or LOG signals can be converted for monitoring, and every camera's look can be synced to show directors their vision while shooting. COLR also enables wireless camera control for Ethernet-enabled cameras, including FoolControl for Red Digital Cinema cameras and ARRI packages.
COLR Lite is designed for GoPros or DSLRs/Mirrorless cameras. COLR Lite offers real-time color grading with 3D LUTs and a CDL or 1D LUT. HDMI in / 3G-SDI out. USB port for Camera Control and auxiliary power. 802.11ac WiFi.
COLR duo has all the functionality of the original COLR with a second 3G-SDI output, allowing a unique 33-point 3D LUT and CDL or 1D LUT to be applied to each output. 3G-SDI in / 2x 3G-SDI out. Gigabit Ethernet and USB ports for Camera Control and auxiliary power, 802.11ac WiFi.
COLR pro is the world’s first 4K real-time color grading system. It supports two simultaneous 12G-SDI inputs and up to four 12G-SDI outputs, with 2 independently applied 33-point 3D LUTs with a CDL or 1D LUT. Designed to be mounted in a rack or on a DIT cart, the unit has 2x 12G-SDI + HDMI in / 4x 12G-SDI + HDMI out, and Gigabit Ethernet for network connectivity.

Teradek also released a new product for the 360º video production market, Sphere. It offers real-time monitoring and live streaming of 360º panoramic video content-in high definition. The new Sphere product was recently covered in The Broadcast Bridge. Teradek Brand Manager Topher DeLancy gave The Broadcast Bridge a live Sphere demo in the Teradek/Vitec Group exhibit at the 2016 NAB Show.
LOKR is central to the digital cinema workflow, providing a single hub for dailies, iOS and Android monitoring, and proxy recording.
With multiple USB 3.0 and 3G-SDI inputs, LOKR can ingest Teradek Bolt video feeds for real-time distribution to anyone on set with an iPad or smartphone. All metadata from Bolt feeds are automatically passed through to LOKR for crew for reference. LOKR's iOS application enhances on-set collaboration by allowing users to review and annotate directly on each recorded take.
LOKR's removable SSDs store each recorded take as a MP4 file, perfect for use as dailies. Each recording contains all of the metadata, color management, notes, and tags the production made while on set.
