Model Description:
UNCOMPRESSED RECORDER/PLAYER, optional 3D video play back

Model Details

The Gemini 4:4:4 is a professional, high-definition video recorder that fits in the palm of your hand. Gemini 4:4:4 functions as a high-quality monitor, a recorder, and a playback device.

As a recorder, Gemini 4:4:4 records in the ultimate highest quality possible—uncompressed, which can easily be incorporated into virtually any workflow using your favorite CODEC. Gemini 4:4:4 is also capable of recording, combining, and playing back 3D video (with paid upgrade).

Generic description only, option not included: ARRIRAW Option for Gemini 4:4:4

The Gemini 4:4:4 leads the industry as the smallest, lightest weight, lowest power uncompressed / ARRIRAW recorder. Unlike competitive products, Gemini 4:4:4 includes a built-in 5.0" LCD monitor, full raster (1920x1080) debayered ARRIRAW output, full support for ARRIRAW at 60fps without expensive hardware upgrades or the purchase of faster drive media.

The Gemini 4:4:4 production kit includes an SSD transfer station and the ARRIRAW Option includes a DC-to-DC Converter for surge protection and powering the Gemini from the ALEXA, all for less than 25% the cost of competitive solutions!
