Teradek has announced the Bolt 4K Monitor Module 750 TX, a zero-delay wireless transmitter for SmallHD Smart 7 monitors with camera control.

The Teradek Bolt 4K monitor module range already includes the Bolt 4K Monitor Module 750 RX (receiver), which can receive video signals up to 4K/30p from distances up to 750 feet line of sight. 

Furthermore, the new Bolt 4K Monitor Module 750 TX is thin and compact wireless video transmitter that slots perfectly into the back of either the SmallHD Cine 7, Indie 7, or 702 Touch.

In addition, the slim profile and monitor slot design keeps the whole Monitor/TX setup neat and tidy unifying power and cabling. The unit supports video signals up to 4K/30p via HDMI at a range of up to 750 feet, as well as 10bit 4:2:2 1080p/60.

Built for SmallHD Smart 7 monitors

Needless to say, the new unit has been designed for seamless integration with the SmallHD Smart 7 Monitor Series (SmallHD Indie 7, Cine 7, and 702 Touch), bringing HDR support with increased range, faster reconnection times, and easy setup with the native Bolt App for iOS or Android.


Wireless Camera Control – ARRI and RED

Camera operators now have wireless camera control at their fingertips for select cameras from ARRI and RED with a SmallHD license (which is sold separately) gaining access to run/stop, frame rate, ISO, shutter angle, white balance, internal ND filter, playback and more. 

This is possible when using the Bolt 4K Monitor Module 750 TX with the RX. This combo allows you to control of your camera from up to 750 ft away by pairing your Bolt 4K Monitor Module 750 TX with a Monitor Module RX using compatible Smart 7 Monitors from SmallHD. 

Supported ARRI Cameras for Wireless Camera Control

Wireless Camera Control is currently available for the following models:

  • ARRI Alexa Mini

  • Alexa Mini LF

  • ARRI Amira

However, users should note that because of the Ethernet requirement for ARRI Camera Control, the TX Module must be used with Cine 7 that has the ARRI Camera Control license installed. The RX Module can be attached to any other SmallHD Smart 7 monitor.

According to Teradek, they are currently working on wireless camera control for RED Komodo and DSMC2, which should be available later in the summer.

How to Setup Wireless Control for ARRI:

  • You need a SmallHD Cine 7 monitor + Bolt 4K Monitor Module TX connected to the camera with ARRI license installed (If you are using two Cine 7 monitors you can have the license installed on either one.)
  • Any Smart 7 monitor + Bolt 4K Monitor Module RX on the remote monitor for wireless control.

How to Setup Wireless Control for RED Komodo or DSMC2 (coming later this summer):

  • SmallHD Indie 7, CIne 7, or 702 Touch + Bolt 4K Monitor Module TX connected to the camera with any necessary camera control cables.
  • Any Smart 7 Monitor + Bolt 4K Monitor Module RX on the remote monitor.
  • Camera control license for RED KOMODO or DSMC2 installed on either one of the Smart 7 Monitors.
