You thought you knew Bolt.

Sending zero-delay wireless video with Bolt has become an on-set standard. But with the power of BB3, Teradek’s custom silicon, we’ve unlocked the long-anticipated wireless camera control. Now, you can control your camera wirelessly with any Bolt 6 or Bolt 4K device when used with SmallHD Cine 7, Indie 7, 702 Touch, Ultra 5 (with TX/RX), or Ultra 7.

What is Wireless Camera Control?

What is Wireless Camera Control?

Whether you’re an AC on the move, a DIT at your cart, or a DP at Video Village, you all have one thing in common: a desire to control your camera, improve on-set efficiency, and support your creative intent.


Bolt Wireless Camera Control allows you to control your camera’s core settings from anywhere on set.
 
Unlike WiFi-based apps on mobile devices or additional dedicated hardware, Bolt 4K or Bolt 6 transmit Wireless Camera Control on the same wireless signal used to transmit zero-delay wireless video. This simplifies your setup and integrates with your existing ecosystem for touch-screen camera functionality on your SmallHD Monitor.

What can Wireless Camera Control do?

What can Wireless Camera Control do?

When using Wireless Camera Control, your SmallHD monitor becomes the off-camera command station. Controlling your white balance, shutter angle, and trigger start/stop record are just a few critical functions you have at your fingertips.
 
Another bonus? You can say goodbye to the learning curve. One day you’re on a job with a RED® V-RAPTOR® package, and the next day you are working with an ARRI Mini LF. SmallHD’s PageOS user interface and menu settings are consistent no matter what camera you’re using.

How does camera control work?

The concept is simple: connect your camera to a SmallHD monitor, send your video and camera control to a secondary SmallHD monitor, and then remotely control the camera from that second SmallHD Monitor. Bolt Monitor Modules and SmallHD monitors with built-in Bolts used to be the only way to enable this

An example of our previous wireless camera control workflow uses two SmallHD Smart 7 or Ultra 5 (TX or RX) Monitors. One of these monitors is equipped with a Teradek Bolt 6 Monitor Module TX and is connected to the camera with a camera control cable. The second Smart monitor has a Teradek Bolt 6 Monitor Module RX attached. After installing a camera control license* on either of our monitors, you can send camera control commands from your RX monitor.

You can now use a similar workflow for wireless camera control with the Bolt 4K or Bolt 6 transmitters and receivers that you already own. The main difference is adding the USB adaptors and a few cables to your setup to ensure all your hardware devices can properly interface. Once your hardware is connected, you’ll again install a single camera control license on either your on-camera Smart monitor or your receiving Smart monitor. Once the license is installed, you can update settings on your receiver-side monitor, which will send the commands back to the transmitter, forwarding the command to the camera.
