Convergent Design Titan HD Extract at NAB New York 2016
Added on 11/17/2016
An interview from the 2016 NAB Show New York with Mitch Gross of Convergent Design. Convergent Design started as a manufacturer of SD/HD signal converters and evolved the product line to include video recorders, RAW data video capture devices and professional monitors. Convergent Design’s progressive technology design means that each new device includes the features and technology of the ones that preceded it. In this interview Mitch talks with us about Titan HD Extract, an incredible new upgrade option for the Odyssey & Apollo monitor/recorders.
Titan HD Extract uses one 4K camera to create three HD video signals. One frame is a SuperSample of the full image area and two are windows selected from within the original input. These windows can be panned smoothly through the 4K field and the three angles can be Live-Switched. All four HD signals can be recorded simultaneously in Apple ProRes with matching timecode and filenames
Both Odyssey and Apollo support multiple types of 4K/UHD inputs, including 6G-SDI, Dual-3G-SDI, HDMI, and Quad-3G-SDI. Even some Sony FS Cameras** that output 4K Raw can be supersampled to HD. Two windows can be moved around the screen to create two additional HD images in realtime, switched, output and recorded...as if there were two additional cameras and camera operators on set!
With the Titan HD Extract upgrade, your Odyssey or Apollo records all four HD files - one supersampled full-frame HD from the 4K input, two extracted from the moveable windows, and an HD program file derived from the live-switch. These four files are recorded in an edit-ready multitrack QuickTime format specifically designed for multiple synced video and audio signals. An EDL is created whether you choose to record a live-switch or not, along with an XML file with the metadata tags for Markers and Notations created during playback.
