Apollo certainly packs a lot into a small space and a mere 560g. It’s capable of recording up to four HD video signals simultaneously, along with a fifth channel of either a live-switch between the four or a quad-split reference view. It can also function as a four-channel live switcher while simultaneously recording the four isolated HD video signals, which Convergent says is a unique feature that puts clear blue water between it and other devices of its kind.
It’s powered via a camcorder battery (under 20w power draw, 6.5-34v with battery mounts available), has no fans and vents, and as all cameras stay in sync with matching timecode, all of the multi-camera media can be stored on a single SSD, which should improve turnaround time in post. And further speeding things up, by using the new Apollo Media Manager App recordings can either be exported as separate Apple ProRes files or as a single multi-camera QuickTime file that drops directly into the timeline of supporting NLEs such as Final Cut Pro-X.
