About this item

The Gemini 4:4:4 combines a small (5") touch screen monitor with an uncompressed HD recorder. The recorder supports HD-SDI, Dual Link and 3G-SDI inputs. It records to one or two 1.8" solid state hard drives. Just about every HD format is supported up to 2k in resolution in both the 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 color space.

Additionally, it is an incredibly light and small device, weighting in at around half a pound and just about 5" wide by 1" thick (5.4 x 4.5 x 1.1"). The built-in touch screen controls the unit and also acts as an on-board monitor. The power draw is a very low 8 to 15 watts, which varies because of the monitor brightness and shooting mode.
