AMSTERDAM (September 10, 2015) – Teradek, a premier provider of video encoders and transmission systems, announces the Bolt Sidekick, a new addition to their popular zero-delay wireless line-up. With 300 feet of range, a lightweight aluminum chassis, and universal connectivity to all Bolt Pro 300/600/2000 systems, the Sidekick receiver is the perfect companion for users with existing system.
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.

All products will also be showcased at the new Creative Solutions Los Angeles showroom, 5329 West San Fernando Road, Los Angeles, CA 90039, open Monday through Friday from 9 am – 5 pm.
