 nano Overview


nanoFlash is the world’s smallest, lightest, lowest-power, professional HD/SD recorder/player

The nanoFlash from Convergent Design represents a huge leap forward in tapeless workflows. Easily mounted to your camera, nanoFlash is designed to record higher quality images than the camera itself, by capturing never-compressed video/audio from the HD-SDI or HDMI output. nanoFlash utilizes the very high-quality Sony XDCAM 422 CODEC, recording the video/audio onto affordable and readily available Compact Flash Media, at up to 160Mbps (Long-GOP) or 220 Mbps (I-Frame). The footage can be stored in either Quicktime (MOV), MXF, or MPG file formats, providing near-universal NLE support as well as DVD / Blu-Ray authoring formats.


Record direct from an HD-SDI to cheap and easily available CompactFlash cards and record direct to your NLE systems file type. No more transcoding. With variable frame rates at your disposal you can record at 50/100 Mbps (Long GOP) or 220 Mbps (I Frame only). 


As both a recorder and player, nanoFlash sports HD-SDI I/O as well as LTC in, wired remote control and a power/start/tally light connector. The NanoFlash is small enough to mount on your camera and will add nothing but versatility to your workflow.








       

 Benefits of Using a nanoFlash

 

 Various Applications

  • Upgrade the video/audio quality of your existing camera:
    • 4:2:0 → 4:2:2 (color)
    • 1440x1080 → 1920x1080 (full-raster)
    • 25/35 Mbps → 50/100/140/160/220 Mbps (bit-rate)
    • Compressed 16-bit audio → Uncompressed 24-bit audio
  • Tapeless Workflow
  • Enhance recording capabilities of your camera with pre-record buffer, pull-down removal, interval recording, redundant recording, etc.
  • Portable HD/SD recorder for switcher output
  • Real-time DVD / Blu-Ray Encoding (.mpg file)
  • Field-proven in extreme locations: high/low temps, altitude, underwater, etc.
      
  • Works with most cameras (HD-SD/SDI or HDMI output and compatible format)
   
 
  • POV camera recorder
  • Video Assist
  • Field Recorder
  • Review Footage on any HDTV or HD-SDI or HDMI Monitor
  • Presentations, Trade Shows, Theme Parks, Museums, Libraries, etc.
  • Client / Feature Production Review
  • Helicopters, Race Cars, Airplanes, Jets, and other high vibration applications
  • Weather balloons, underwater footage
