Multiple Powering Options
While pairing in the field without a computer is an option, we highly recommend using the Bolt Manager app and a laptop, at least for initial setup. Software pairing should be the first step, with field pairing only being used as necessary to troubleshoot dropouts or interference on location. We include USB-A cables, so you’ll just need a computer with enough USB-A ports to accommodate the devices. If you’re pairing multiple receivers to a single transmitter, a USB hub might be helpful. Instructions for both software pairing and field pairing are included in the rental.
This receiver includes a single AC adapter for a continuous, long-term power option.
We also include the Teradek Bolt XT Sony/Canon Bidirectional Battery Plate. However, you’ll need to provide your own or rent compatible Sony NP-F970 / Anton Bauer NP-F976 or Canon LP-E6 / LP-E6N batteries and chargers.
The 500-foot range is a theoretical maximum distance in absolutely perfect conditions. Actual performance varies greatly depending on the location. Tests at our Memphis headquarters usually get about 50 feet indoors and 100 feet outdoors.
No, each Bolt series can only send and receive signals to other units within that same series.
