Convergent Design is driven to bringing innovative, high quality, products to our industry that are exceptionally reliable. Like its predecessor, the nanoFlash, the Gemini 4:4:4 is an industry leading recorder; combining low size (138 x 120 x 37 mm (5.4 x 4.7 x 1.45”)), low power (8 to 15W), and light weight (575g or 1.26lbs). As the next generation of Convergent Design’s product family, the Gemini 4:4:4 offers the ultimate in quality; recording DPX 4:4:4 RGB uncompressed video. This uncompromising quality is ideal for high-end television and cinematography applications. Additionally, its ability to accept video in 4:2:2 makes unthrottling your camera’s potential a possibility for all videographers.
Not only is the Gemini 4:4:4 a recorder, it also serves as a monitor for recording and playback. Barely larger than a 5.0” LCD monitor, Gemini’s advanced touch screen allows for easy menu access and selection of features with an included stylus. In record and playback mode, the brightness of the 800 x 480 24-bit LCD gives you brilliant images. The 1:1 Pixel Mapping feature assists in achieving critical focus. The menu functions are easy to use and quickly hidden out of view when desired.
The Gemini 4:4:4 has withstood rigorous testing to achieve the highest degree of reliability in both the hardware and firmware. The Gemini 4:4:4 is made from rugged milled aluminum and engineered to withstand extreme environments. In addition, Convergent Design has many enhancements planned including 3D and ARRIRAW support, slated for release in 4Q 2011 and 1Q 2012 respectively. New features and firmware updates are provided free of charge via website downloads. Certain significant upgrades will be available at extra cost, such as ARRIRAW and 3D.
