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.
Matching file names, matching timecode, and Apollo’s AV Align feature saves you hours data wrangling and in post production editing.
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.
No need to transcode disparate codecs as recorded internally from different cameras; Apollo records to edit-ready Apple ProRes.
Using the touch-screen you can easily monitor and live switch your production, giving you a 5th recorded channel of the program stream.
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!
Add frame delay BEFORE you begin shooting and spare the trouble of compensating for any audio/video latency in post production.
Post Made Easy
Apollo records the multiple video signals in a multitrack QuickTime format specifically designed for multiple synced video and audio signals. The ProRes Transfer Tool, available for download from the CD Website, ingests the singular, multitrack file from the SSD card, and separates each track is converted to its own Apple ProRes file, with an extension to link the different matched files together. Each extension is letter A-D to signify to input, or QSLS to signify either Quad-Slip or Live-Switch if this was chosen to also be recorded. An XML file is also created with the metadata tags for Markers and Notations.
