Lightweight and Affordable Gemini 4:4:4 ARRIRAW Recorder Available at Radiant ImagesThe new Gemini 4:4:4 ARRIRAW recorder is considered the industry’s smallest, lightest weight and highest quality uncompressed video recorder. But the best part? The Gemini system allows filmmakers to create the ultimate in HD and now ARRIRAW at a fraction and size of other ARRIRAW recorders.
A full ARRIRAW recorder can cost upwards of $2,500 a day. Radiant Image’s Gemini 4:4:4 ARRIRAW package, including four data magazines and an SSD transfer station, rents for $695 a day ($2,085 a week).
That means ARRIRAW, the preferred choice for high-end cinematic applications, is now an affordable option for budgets and projects of any size.
“This new ARRIRAW version of the Gemini recorder is an incredibly powerful device, and it fits in the palm of your hand,” said Michael Mansouri, co-founder of Radiant Images, a leading LA-based rental house and digital cinema innovator. “It’s lightweight and easy to use and shoots uncompressed, the highest quality possible. Capturing with ARRIRAW is now an affordable and accessible option.”
The Gemini 4:4:4 ARRIRAW provides both maximum quality and maximum flexibility. It’s simple, small, stable and fast, functioning as a high-quality monitor, a recorder and a playback device – and weighing a mere 1.5 lbs.
The Gemini 4:4:4 combines a small, 5” LCD touch screen monitor (smaller than the TVLogic 5.6” monitor!) with an uncompressed HD recorder. The recorder supports HD-SDI, Dual Link and 3G-SDI Inputs and records to one or two 1.8” solid state hard drives.
Manufactured by Convergent Designs, the Gemini 4:4:4 ARRIRAW’s uncompressed recording can easily be incorporated into virtually any workflow using a favorite CODEC.
