Teradek Announces Bolt Sidekick
Weighing in at only 9 ounces, Bolt Sidekick is the ideal companion for handheld monitors used by 1st ACs and directors. While easily paired with all second generation Bolt Pro systems, the Sidekick runs silent within a 300 foot line of sight.
“We’ve received a lot of feedback from our current Bolt users and, with those suggestions, we developed a new product that is now the Bolt Sidekick,” said Nicol Verheem, CEO of Teradek. “Similar to the original Bolt, the Sidekick receiver is very much a device that has been designed and crafted side by side with an extremely passionate, creative community to solve an immediate need on-set.”
With its minimal footprint and straightforward design, the Sidekick receiver maintains the standards expected in all Bolt systems: 7-17V range, 2-pin Lemo power input, LED status indicators, and HDMI/3G-SDI flavors. The Sidekick also includes a threaded ¼ 20” point for endless mounting options.
Bolt Sidekick ships this fall for $1,990 USD.
