New Firmware from Vitec Makes SmallHD 703 Bolt and Teradek RT MK 3.1 Combo Even Better

Vitec adds a new interface to the SmallHD 703 Bolt and Teradek RT MK 3.1 combo to make room for super accurate lens mapping. 

On their own, the SmallHD 703 Bolt monitor/receiver and the Teradek RT MK 3.1 wireless lens controller are powerful pieces of equipment for monitoring and focus pulling, but Vitec decided to take the duo to the next level by incorporating a powerful new interface that features highly accurate lens mapping that can be overlayed on top of your monitor. You can also view iris, focus, and your range of depth-of-field, and in future update,s Vitec will add focus distance values as well as the ability to move values around on the screen.

As of right now, the firmware is not available on current units, but Vitec will be coming out with a new single-channel lens controller system that will be able to handle the upgrade, which features adjustable tension knobs, larger rings, and backlit focus indicators. Those will be available next month  retail at around $2000 to $3000.
