Convergent Design Introduces Titan HD Extract

Convergent Design has announced an exciting new upgrade option for their popular Odyssey and Apollo line of monitor/recorders. It allows a single camera shooting in UHD 3840x2160 to create the effect of shooting with multiple cameras. It does this by extracting HD resolution windows from the "master" 4K image. In addition to monitoring and recording the full image (supersampled down to HD resolution), the additional "angles" can be also be recorded.

The full image and extracted windows can also be live switched, allowing for a total of up to four HD signals that can be recorded. Depending on how the wide shot is composed, and where subjects are placed in the frame, one could record a medium shot and a close-up in addition to the wide shot, two medium shots, or a variety of other shots.

For the one-man crew shooters out there, Titan HD Extract provides the incredible ability to record a multicam production with essentially nothing more than a single 4K-capable camera and an Odyssey or Apollo, which allows you to fit your kit into a single case. This makes transportation in the field much easier, especially when traveling to difficult or remote locations. Titan allows for the ultimate quick turn around on multi-cam jobs, allowing you to provide your client with a high-end looking production with no post-production work necessary. Should you want to polish your live cut, however, Titan will generate an Edit Decision List as an .EDL file compatible with many of the major post production software available.

Titan's list price is set at $1295, with a special introductory offer of $995, and is expected to be available in the beginning of October. To learn more about Titan HD, visit Convergent Design's site: convergent-design.com/titan
