ARRIRAW Option for Gemini 4:4:4


The Gemini 4:4:4 leads the industry as the smallest, lightest weight, lowest power uncompressed / ARRIRAW recorder. Unlike competitive products, Gemini 4:4:4 includes a built-in 5.0" LCD monitor, full raster (1920x1080) debayered ARRIRAW output, full support for ARRIRAW at 60fps without expensive hardware upgrades or the purchase of faster drive media.

The Gemini 4:4:4 production kit includes an SSD transfer station and the ARRIRAW Option includes a DC-to-DC Converter for surge protection and powering the Gemini from the ALEXA, all for less than 25% the cost of competitive solutions!
 
 

ARRIRAW Option


ARRIRAW support is available to the Gemini 4:4:4 Recorder as a paid upgrade to the unit. The upgrade is a FIRMWARE upgrade only, with no new hardware or new SSD media required. Contact your local dealer for pricing and purchasing information.

   

Certified Quality


Gemini 4:4:4 is an ARRI Certified recorder. Therefore, the quality of .ari file you get from Gemini is exactly the same as the quality from any other ARRI Certified recorder. Gemini 4:4:4 also records uncompressed RGB 444 up to 60fps (DPX), and soon will capture DNxHD as well.
             
 

16:9 and 4:3 Support


While current production firmware (1.1.2) supports only 16:9, Convergent Design has announced support for 4:3 as well. This is included in the ARRIRAW Upgrade, and as a free firmware update for current users.
   

60 Frames/Sec


ARRIRAW Option for Gemini 4:4:4 records ARRIRAW in all frame rates up to 60p. Please note that this is the highest frame rates Gemini can capture from Alexa, as it records 120fps internally only.
             

 

Demo Mode


ARRIRAW is available to ALL Gemini 4:4:4 users (firmware v1.1.2 or greater) in demo mode. From the menu simply turn RAW to 'On'! Images and preview will produce a grey bar for watermarking. This lets you test with the files and workflow, and upgrade when your ready!
   

Full Raster Debayer


Unique to competing products, Gemini 4:4:4 has a 5" LCD hi-bright monitor. In ARRIRAW you see a full raster (1920 x 1080) debayered image, with or without LUT applied.
             
 

Save Money


Gemini 4:4:4 with ARRIRAW Option is about $12,000USD, including media! This is less than 25% the cost of competitive products, literally saving you thousands of dollars. You can pay more for ARRIRAW recording, but you won't get any better quality or reliability!
   

No New Media or Hardware


When you upgrade your Gemini 4:4:4, it is only a firmware update that can be done anywhere once you have obtained your Activation Key. Also, there is no new media necessary for high data rate capture or likewise. Convergent Design SSD's work in all Gemini Series products.
             

 

MEGA Metadata


All Metadata from ALEXA is sent over and captured on EVERY file. An .XML file is created additionally, for importing Metadata into your NLE. Coming soon: Full List of Metadata.
 
 

Easy Transfer


Smaller than a pack of cigarettes, the Universal Transfer Station easily snaps into the Seagate GoFlex Adapter of your choice, allowing for fast transfer via Thunderbolt, Firewire 800 and USB 3.0. The first generation Transfer Station provides eSATA transfer.
