The Teradek Bolt 500 is The Next Logical Step For Teradeks’ Bolt Lineup

by Bret HoyLeave a Comment

Teradek has already conquered the realm of wireless HD video transmission, but that doesn’t mean that they’re getting complacent.

They’ve steadily released new technology over the past few years like the VidiU, The Cube and most recently, the Sphere. In doing so, they haven't left behind the core of the business— The Bolt.

In fact, they’ve done exactly the opposite by updating and upgrading across the board and creating a tiered library of products that reach different distances all while accomplishing a similar task- Zero Latency HD video transmission. And they’ve now filled in another small gap in their lineup by releasing the Teradek Bolt 500.

The Bolt 500 won’t necessarily bring you new, unheard-of capabilities, but giving customers the ability to buy for their specific distance needs opens them up to clients that either couldn’t afford the prices of their longer distance products or couldn’t use their lesser Bolts.

As they’ve continued to grow, they've stuck to what’s made their business successful and as we’re seeing, they’re still working for your business.

The Teradek Bolt 500 is shipping now!
