Convergent Design Titan Portable 4K Switcher/Recorder

Convergent Design Titan Portable 4K Switcher/Recorder
TITAN

Convergent Design Titan
Many cameras can shoot in 4K today, but most clients still want HD. How can a 4K camera become an enhanced HD device? Introducing Titan.

Titan is the latest option for the Odyssey & Apollo monitor/recorders. Titan 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 file names.

• Shoot a two-subject interview using one camera and Titan and record a Live-Switch of a two-shot plus separate close-ups.

• Record a panel presentation with a wide master plus a single on the moderator and another of the panel, all from one camera.

• Cover a House of Worship service with a shot of the clergyman, another of the chorus, and a wide view of them all – done with the modest investment of one camera and Titan.

• With Titan and a single installed camera capture an entire football field from the 50 yard line, plus follow a player as he runs the course of the field.

Eliminate the render time of reframing in post. Deliver edited content as well as the complete separate angles to your client at the end of the shoot. Shoot a multi-cam job with a kit you can fit in a single backpack.

Titan accepts 4K video signals over HDMI and SDI (original Odyssey7Q limited to 3G-SDI). Titan also accepts 4K RAW data from the Sony FS5, FS7 & FS700 cameras. Live-Switching is available as cuts and dissolves, and an Edit Decision List is generated as an .EDL file for conforming an edit in post. (Read More..)
