Convergent Design is breaking out of the on-camera field recorder mold with the Athena to deliver a product for production and post. The Athena is a 4K recorder/ player and an encoder/ decoder. Its’ intended uses are for on-location production such as for an EFP crews, live event productions, commercials, and studio productions. As a recorder it has the ability to capture one 4K stream at 60p or two 4K streams at 30p. It can also capture four HD or 2K cameras on location or in the studio with 64 channels of audio. The Ethernet connection allows the Athena to be recording and sending the signal live to post for a quick turn-around edit or another location to view the feed. The Athena, which is the size of half a rack, is also moving into post as a player and decoder. This device can even run point of sale monitors. The Athena is a dedicated hardware device not a computer with software that needs to be maintained, updated, and may crash.
