DEVICE OPERATION
GENERAL
BOLT MANAGER SOFTWARE
• Keep the transmitter and Bolt Sidekick at close range for 60 seconds after powering on the devices. This allows them to scan for and select the best wireless channel.
Bolt Manager allows you to configure and upgrade your Bolt Sidekick. It is available at
www.teradek.com/pages/downloads. The following configuration is available:
• For best results when using multiple Bolt systems in the same area, place the transmitters and receivers
a few feet apart from each other.
• Region Selection - Configure Bolt to comply with your region’s regulations governing use
of the 5GHz spectrum.
• Operation of other wireless equipment may interfere with the Bolt. For best results, separate other
wireless transmitters and receivers as much as possible.
BOLT CONNECTOR / PIN−OUT
Bolt uses a 2-pin connector
MOUNTING
• Mount the Bolt Sidekick vertically, keeping the antennas clear of any obstructions.
• Orient the transmitter and Bolt Sidekick so they are parallel to each other.
• For best results, orient Bolt Sidekick so the front or back has clear line−of−sight to the transmitter.
ON SCREEN DISPLAY OPERATION
Status Screens - Activate the status OSD by depressing the ‘Menu Joystick’ button (G), and cycle through
screens by pressing these buttons up or down. Hide the status screen by pressing left.
• Main Status Screen - This screen displays the status of the wireless receiver, along with the current video
resolution, frequency, link quality (if connected).
• Time Code Screen - Displays the current time code if received from the transmitter.
• Temperature Status Screen - Displays the current internal temperature of the unit.
• TX Input Voltage Status - Displays the current voltage of the transmitter.
Menu Operation - Launch the menu by pressing right while the OSD is active. Exit from the menu by
pressing left.
• Test pattern - Select a video output format from this menu to output a test pattern over HDMI and SDI. Return
to the previous video by pressing left on the ‘Menu’ joystick.
• Pairing - Select Pairing to link your receiver with another transmitter. Once pairing is activated on the
receiver, turn on the transmitter and use a paper clip to hold the reset button (between the DC input

indicate that pairing is active.
• OSD Settings - Choose when to display the OSD. By default, the OSD is displayed when the link is down.
"Hidden by default" hides the OSD until it is activated by the joystick. If "Always show OSD" is
selected, the OSD will be displayed unless deactivated by the joystick.
