nanoFlash by Convergent Design

Convergent Design's nanoFlash is the World's Smallest High Quality HD/SD-SDI / HDMI Recorder/Player. It is also the most versatile Recorder/Player in the world in terms of bit-rates, recording options and formats. By adding the nanoFlash, one can meet the 50 Mbps acquisition requirements, for many networks.

The nanoFlash produces extremely Low-Noise Images - Master Quality Modes are Visually Indistinguishable from Uncompressed

Improves the image quality of most cameras as the HD/SD-SDI and HDMI outputs are before the compression stages. Many cameras only record highly compressed 4:2:0 while outputing 4:2:2 over HD-SDI or HDMI. The nanoFlash uses these high-quality uncompressed 4:2:2 images to produce higher quality recordings.

The nanoFlash offers a dramatically better image, free from motion artifacts and other image problems, such as mosquito noise. Typically the nanoFlash offers a better image, even from many high-end cameras.
