SmallHD Focus Bolt Offers a Low-Cost Wireless Monitoring Solution

The Focus Bolt is a low-cost video monitoring system from SmallHD.

Focus Bolt is a Frankenstein of the Focus on-camera monitor and the 703 Bolt. The wireless system uses a separate transmitter and receiver to send a signal up to 500ft away. Both the Bolt TX transmitter and Bolt RX receiver are 5" daylight viewable monitors featuring 800 nit brightness, mini HMDI, micro USB inputs, as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack. The bright display offers a 16:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1280x720 at 294 PPI. 

The Bolt TX is also compatible with the 703 Bolt, Teradek Bolt 500, and Sidekick II so you can interchange systems. Similarly, the Bolt RX is compatible with the Teradek 500, 1000 and 3000 transmitters. 

Separately, each unit costs $1,300. For the pair, you're looking at $2,500.
