A Brief History of Time...
Our company was founded in 2000 by Mike Schell, an electrical engineer who previously worked in the field of electronic circuit design, specifically in the development of RAM memory chips. The company's original product line consisted of SD/HD signal converters and has evolved through many generations of products to the line of industry benchmark recorder/monitors that we produce for the film and television industries today.
Convergent Design made a name for itself in the industry with products like the Flash XDR HD/SD video recorder that was introduced in 2008 and the highly successful nanoFlash in 2009, which is a prized possession of industry professionals worldwide to this day.
With the Gemini 4:4:4, the first full uncompressed HD and RAW recorder/monitor in the industry, Convergent Design emerged as an industry game changer. With our current Odyssey Professional monitor/recorder line of products, Convergent Design continues to set the standard for performance in a very demanding industry.
Nothing comes easy when your focus is bringing technological advancements and game-changing solutions to the marketplace. It requires a special formula of comprehensive study of existing and emerging needs, feedback from industry professionals, countless hours of planning, design, re-design, and finally, the intricate yet enormous effort undertaken to bring a solution from the drawing board to the shipping dock. These challenges are what we thrive on. Every product is a journey, and from start to finish our focus is bringing innovative solutions into reality. Our customers count on us for products that make great things possible.
We are highly responsive to feedback from industry professionals and our industry alliances enable us to be on the cutting edge of technology, all while preserving the spirit of innovation and creativity that started us out to begin with. Our engineering, manufacturing, marketing and support staff share the philosophy that dedication to our customers and to quality are the cornerstone of our company as we continue to grow.
Our products are available through a broad network of dealers and distributors worldwide, with constantly expanding sales volume. Our team designs, manufactures and supports all Convergent Design products at our new facility in Colorado Springs, CO USA.
We are eternally grateful to our customers and to the industries we serve for their devotion and support over the past 14 years and the years to come.
