Wireless Pairing - Teradek Transmitter to 703 Bolt

Pair a compatible Teradek wireless transmitter to a SmallHD 703 Bolt following the steps below.

Enabling Pairing mode on 703 Bolt

Power on your SmallHD 703 Bolt and use the joystick to navigate left to access the Settings Menu.

Scroll down & click on INPUT options underneath INPUT/OUTPUT & ensure the input is set to WIRELESS.

Press the Back button & navigate downward to find the WIRELESS option under the ACCESSORIES category.

Click the joystick and select PAIRED TX to enter pairing mode which will wait for a wireless signal from a compatible transmitter.

If a transmitter is already paired and you wish to unpair it, select where it says 'PAIRED TX' and then click the option to 'UNPAIR'.

Pairing to a Teradek Transmitter (TX)

First ensure your Teradek transmitter is connected to DC power & a video source via HDMI or SDI.

Power on the transmitter via the switch opposite the inputs:

Using a paperclip (or similar precision instrument) press the Reset button on the transmitter until the blue cloud LED begins to blink quickly:

Select 'PAIR' on the 703 Bolt and the monitor will begin pairing which typically takes 5-10 seconds but can take up to 3 minutes in the presence of heavy 5Ghz interference.

Wireless interference is a common culprit for pairing issues. If the red fault LED stops blinking without having paired, or the 703 Bolt indicates that pairing has failed - try and move to an area with less wireless traffic specifically in the 5Ghz spectrum (ie away from wifi routers, antenna masts, etc).  Once paired, the signal will be far less susceptible to issues caused by interference.

We also advise placing the antennas of the devices around 6 to 10 feet apart from one other and adjusting them so that all they are perpendicular to one another when pairing (point one device's antennas up, point the other device's antennas toward the horizon for example).

Congratulations, you're paired up and receiving a wireless signal!

Teradek Transmitters compatible with 703 Bolt


*Use Bolt-manager (on a computer) if on a Teradek product, it’s easier to Pair and be sure everything is up to date. https://teradek.com/pages/downloads#bolt

*Be sure both RX and TX units are up to date on the latest firmware. (You can update the Teradek unit via Bolt-manager).

To prevent interference when pairing a transmitter and receiver:

*Turn off all other transmitter/receiver sets, and only turn on the transmitter and single receiver you are trying to pair.

*Turn off any receivers that are already paired to the same transmitter. Only have the transmitter and the one receiver you're trying to pair turned on!

*Have the transmitter and receiver at least 3 feet or 1 meter apart -- do not place them right next to each other!

*The region settings must match between all devices (USA, Europe, Japan Indoor, etc.).

*Remove the Antennas.  Once you start the pairing process, add a single antenna to both the RX and TX.

*NOTE: Sometimes if there is a lot of interference in the area, it may take a few tries to get the units to lock, continue to try the pairing process.
