Convergent Design Apollo OLED Monitor, Recorder, Switcher
Key Features
  • 7.7" 1280x800 OLED Touchscreen Monitor
  • Four Input Switching and Recording
  • Compatible with Select Samsung SSDs
  • 4K/UHD/HD Recording over SDI or HDMI
Convergent Design's Apollo OLED Monitor, Recorder, Switcher is a four camera HD video switcher that can record all four video inputs while simultaneously recording either the quad split display, or the program output. It builds upon the proven hardware of the Odyssey 7Q+, but stands by itself as a very different product. Dual SSD slots are provided for recording video to Convergent Design Premium 2.5" SSDs, which offer high speeds, reliability, and power-loss protection. Select Samsung SSDs are supported as an option to Convergent Design branded SSDs. The monitor features a 7.7", 1280 x 800, OLED, touchscreen display with a 3400:1 contrast ratio, true blacks, and professional monitoring features such as waveform, histogram, vectorscope, and 3D LUT support.

I have a Sony FS5II and want to record 4k on Apollo, I have been spend hours trying to figure it out with out succeed.I have raw external update on the camera. what step should I do on the camera and in the Apollo?
Asked by: sergio
The Sony FS5 mark 2 can offer 4K output either through the HDMI port or SDI when working with RAW. Try to play with the REC OUTPUT function on the camera for the HDMI output. The Apollo is not like the Odyssey 7Q/7Q+ in accepting RAW SDI signal. We can try to assist you further if contacting us through [email protected], live chat, or our call center at contact number 800.606.6969 / 212.444.6615.

Having issue with audio sync. Currently have the ...

Having issue with audio sync. Currently have the audio going from an aja kipro into the Apollo, but the audio is out of sync by several seconds. Thoughts?
Asked by: Jeffrey
If the video is attached to the audio in the same cable feed, then there is either an issue with the original sync of your source video and audio or there is an issue with the Apollo. Although, don't trust sync by visually looking at the Apollo screen while listening with the headphones. Always pull the file that was recorded with the Apollo into the computer to verify audio sync. Next, if you are bringing in a separate audio signal from the video signal, you will most likely always have non-sync. To fix this, if you are using the multi-cam function of the recorder, use the audio sync alignment feature in the playback area function of the recorder. You'll then sync each angle of video source to one of the sources that has the master audio. Without more information of your setup, this is the best answer I can provide.

Is it possible to connect the Apollo to a ...

Is it possible to connect the Apollo to a computer or laptop and have all recordings exported directly into it instead of the SSD?
Asked by: DS
Dan from Convergent is basically correct on one assumption. Although, this is a question about personal preference workflow, based on abilities of the Apollo. Let me explain. The bandwidth and speed needed to record the highest quality signal the Apollo provides, while recording multiple angles plus a program line-cut as you switch the angles... this has to be done on the SSD's. Although, you can output the signal from the SDI output from from only one of the following... one angle, or the program line cut, and record that into an SDI to USB capture device connected to a laptop or desktop... or to an internal SDI capture card installed in the desktop tower. If you do this, you will not need to have the SSD's recording and if I'm guessing correctly, without having to have them in the device. The device should still turn on and work as you set it up, you obviously just will not be able to use the record feature for the multiple angles and line-cut/switch at the same time.

Can the Apollo switch between 3 frames, 2 of which (1 wide and 1 tight shot) are from my main 4K camera using Titan HD Extract, and draw the third frame from a second camera that is facing the audience?
Asked by: bob
The Convergent Design Apollo OLED Monitor, Recorder, Switcher can take up to 4 signals. If you have three separate signals, yes it can do that.
