At the April 2011 NAB show in Las Vegas, Convergent Design received three prestigious "best of show awards" awards for its Gemini 4:4:4 solid state video recorder.

The revolutionary Gemini 4:4:4 records uncompressed HD video onto affordable 1.8” SSD media from Dual/Single link HD-SDI 4:4:4/4:2:2 sources, with full S-Log support and user-programmable LUTs. Easily mistaken for simply an LCD monitor, the all-in-one camera-mountable Gemini includes a high-bright 5” LCD and recording / playback capability with industry-leading size, weight (0.45 Kg.), and power (8-15 Watts), in a milled aluminum case. Gemini can further be enhanced with optional 3D firmware which includes independent left/right channel recording with multiple output formats, including anaglyph, side-by-sides and luma differencing.

During the NAB 2011 show, Convergent Design’s Gemini recorder received the Vidy Award from Videography magazine, the Mario Award from TV Technology magazine and the Pick Hit Award from Broadcast Engineering magazine.

Prokit believes the awards are well deserved. What do you think?
