The nanoFlash from Convergent Design is the smallest, solid state HD/SD or HDMI recorder/player currently available. Recording to MXF or QuickTime format using 2 x CompactFlash cards, the nanoFlash can be mounted to a camera or connected to any HD-SDI source via BNC coax. The nanoFlash differs from the Flash XDR in that offers an HDMI in/Out, has 2 Compact Flash Slots (instead of 4) and does not provide a professional balanced analogue audio input or output - using instead, up to 8 channels of quality audio embedded in the HD-SDI/HDMI stream. Audio levels are displayed on the LCD panel.
Like the Flash XDR, when ready, you can start and stop recording using the control buttons, your camcorder’s record button or an external trigger. On completion, simply transfer the source files to your laptop editor using a Firewire-800 reader, drop the footage straight onto the timeline and edit while you continue to shoot.
With no moving parts and low power consumption, the nanoFlash is ideal for use in extreme conditions.
