Teradek ACE 500 Video Review – Affordable Wireless Video

After using the ACE 500 for almost two months I thought I would create a quick followup review video of the new entry-level wireless video kit from Teradek. You can check out Part 1 of the review HERE and the new video review is embedded above. Happy viewing!

The Teradek ACE 500 feels in many ways like a direct successor to the Paralinx legacy and even takes the “ACE” name from the now discontinued Paralinx ACE 300. It’s a worthy followup to the Paralinx line in my opinion and the price point of $899 for the transmitter and receiver pair makes it especially appealing for anyone just starting with wireless video. However, if you’re already an owner of any of the current generation of Bolt products then you’ll be okay sticking with your current Bolt setup.

With the ACE 500 it is clear the over $400 in savings (when compared to the closest Bolt 500 LT HDMI kit) stems directly from the plasticky exterior build and lack of a pricier LEMO connector. While clearly not built with the high volume rental house market in mind, I can see the ACE 500 holding up over years in the capable hands of an owner/op.

What do you think? Will you be adding the Teradek ACE 500 to your personal kit? Let us know in the comments below.

$900 for HDMI only blows.
