Announcing and Shipping the new Teradek Bolt Sidekick II

Via Teradek:

We are very excited to announce and ship the new Bolt Sidekick II receiver.

The original Bolt Sidekick was crafted from the requests of Bolt users, an alternative receiver to the full-sized standard, that was significantly more compact and lightweight for portable handheld monitors used by directors and 1st AC’s.

We’ve continued to see the popularity and have developed a Sidekick II that is compatible with our new Bolt 500/1000/3000 systems.



Perfect for director’s monitor rigs, the Sidekick II allows you to receive a Bolt video feed from any 500,1000, or 3000 model.

– SDI Output with 2-Pin Power Connector
– Supports 20Mhz channels when paired with Bolt 3000
– 300ft. Range – Supports timecode and Start/Stop flags.
– Compatible with Bolt 500,1000, 3000
– Built-in Test Pattern Generator
– Super lightweight and compact

Black Friday Deals

Of course with the holiday season around the corner and particularly Thanksgiving here in the states, we are offering some once-a-year Black Friday deals.

The deals start today, Monday November 21 and end next Monday November 28.

We have a few specific deals on the Bolt family (including the newly announced Sidekick II and Bolt 500 deluxe kits) and also a limited number of stock on some discounted refurbished units.


Bolt 500 Deluxe Kits

Our Bolt deluxe kits have been popular amongst users who are looking for a complete, turn-key solution.

Especially with our long range systems, we have included our robust panel antenna as well as a hard case that contains all components to a Bolt system.


Now, we have released a Deluxe kit for the 500 system which includes all the popular mounting options, including Wooden Camera Ultra Arm as well as additional power connections. And of course, an appropriately sized hard case to get you to-and-from set safely.

By purchasing systems in a kit with additional receivers, we can pass on additional savings.
