Convergent Design has announced that their Gemini 4:4:4 recorder will support ARRIRAW 4:3 (2880 x 2160) recording for the ALEXA and should be available via a firmware update some time in July. The upcoming firmware will also include an Auto SSD Backup function that allows two identical masters to be created simultaneously. This feature provides extra security on set. The Gemini will automatically cross verify the video and audio data as well as the directory and FAT tables. Additionally, Convergent will be providing a SSD Transfer Program to support the offload of data, especially from raided drives (shooting 1080p50/60). Also in the works is Stereo 3D (paid upgrade), Avid DNxHD, Camera Selection List, Programmable LUTs, and more.
