Gemini 4:4:4 Gets A Significant Price Reduction As Sales Climb
Posted on Mar 6, 2013 by Alex Fice
Convergent Design has announced that the price of the Gemini 4:4:4 has been reduced to £3995, a £1000 saving.
Gemini 4:4:4 is probably the smallest, lightest uncompressed recorder on the market, as well as now the most affordable. Outfitted with a 5″ LCD monitor for record and playback, and upgradable firmware options such as ARRIRAW, Canon 4K Cinema Raw, and Stereo 3D.
“It is with great pleasure that we make this announcement. Sales of the Gemini 4:4:4 uncompressed recorder have continued to increase over time, allowing us to respond to the market with a significant price reduction; passing the savings onto our customers,” says Amber Cowles, Marketing & Communications Director. “Convergent Design sets the standard for highest quality at the lowest cost in digital acquisition. This price reduction is another great example of that.”
In addition Convergent Design is currently still offering a limited-time promotion that each new Gemini 4:4:4 purchase will include two FREE 512 GB SSDs; a £2000 value.
“This is an amazingly attractive price for a recorder as robust and versatile as Gemini 4:4:4 is, especially when used as a Raw recorder. Consider this: ARRIRAW recording with Gemini is less than 20% the cost of the competing solution, with a simple workflow, and all at the same certified quality. I’m not sure that there is any question that this solution is superior to all else on the market,” says Mike Schell, President. “This price point matches the expectations of our customers and the market place in general. We are thrilled to be able to offer it at this reduced price.”
While successful as an uncompromised uncompressed and raw recorder, a compressed DNxHD recording will be available as a FREE firmware update to the unit in Q2. Come see Gemini 4:4:4 at our booth C7613 at NAB April 8-11.
