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 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.
