A Production Studio in the Palm of Your Hand...

The Apollo provides unmatched power and flexibility for multi-camera productions.

Apollo is a portable multi-camera monitor/recorder/switcher that can simultaneously record up to two 4K or up to four HD video signals, along with a fifth channel of either a live-switch, or a quad-split reference view.

Sync - Matching file names, matching timecode, and Apollo’s AV Align feature saves you hours data wrangling and in post production editing.

One SSD - Only one 2.5” Solid State Drive is required to record the four video signals and switched program streams into one file on the drive.

One Codec - No need to transcode disparate codecs as recorded internally from different cameras; Apollo records to edit-ready Apple ProRes.

Switching - Using the touch-screen you can easily monitor and live switch your production, giving you a 5th recorded channel of the program stream.

Double Master - Spare the monotonous and time consuming process of duplicating copies of your data at the end of the shoot day, Create a double master while you shoot!

AV Align - Add frame delay BEFORE you begin shooting and spare the trouble of compensating for any audio/video latency in post production.

The All-In-One Production Problem Solver...

Apollo is a portable multichannel monitor/recorder/switcher that can simultaneously record up to four HD video signals, along with a fifth channel of either a live-switch, or a quad-split reference view. Separate ‘Preview’ and ‘Program’ outputs allow you to monitor on set while using Apollo’s touch screen for simple switching with cut or dissolves. Play back in perfect sync while toggling cameras. All of this functionality in a unit the size of a small tablet and capable of battery power for the ultimate portability.
