Convergent Design, manufacturers of the popular NanoFlash flash-based recorder, have announced the Gemini, a new 4:4:4 uncompressed field recorder. The Gemini features twin SSD slots, which allow for simultaneous recording of an identical backup, or gapless spanning from one drive to the next for longer recording times. The Gemini also integrates an 800×480 5″ LCD screen in a package that’s roughly the same size as the SmallHD DP6 monitor: the Gemini is 5.4″ x 4.5″ x 1.1″ and tips the scales at a scant one pound.
