Convergent Design Apollo Portable Multicamera Live Switcher/Recorder

7.7 inch OLED Portable Multicamera Live Switcher/Recorder with SDI & HDMI and SSD
Part No: CD-APOLLO

Apollo is a portable multichannel monitor/recorder. Apollo can simultaneously record up to four HD video signals, along with a fifth channel of either a live-switch between the four or a quad-split reference view. Apollo can also function as a four-channel live switcher while simultaneously recording the four isolated HD video signals. The size of a small tablet and able to run for hours on a camcorder battery, Apollo is truly portable and the only device of its kind that can both record multiple HD camera feeds as well as live-switch between them. It’s a production studio in the palm of your hand.
