PROFESSIONAL 3D-HD PORTABLE RECORDER/PLAYER
NANO3D NANO3D NANO3D

The world's smallest, professional 3D, HD/SD Recorder/Player

The nano3D combines two awarding-winning nanoFlashes to create a professional 3D recorder / player.
The nano3D's claim to fame is that it provides easy, on-set, immediate 3D Pixel-Synced Playback!

Thus the nano3D can record two HD-SDI (or HDMI) video/audio streams simultaneously, in-sync, with linked filenames and timecodes.
The low-cost nano3D is an industry breakthrough in allowing instantaneous playback of the two recorded streams so that the 3D images can be checked for quality and aesthetic appeal.


Redundant Recording
The nano3D may also be used to record a single video/audio stream redundantly, creating two simultaneous masters.

High Quality and Proxy Recording
The nano3D may be used to record a single video/audio stream in both high quality and proxy modes simultaneously.

Two Independent nanoFlashes
The nano3D may be quickly seperated into two, fully functional nanoFlashes for when not recording in 3D or recording redundantly. Any two nanoFlashes + a nano3D Kit creates a nano3D.

NANO3D
nano3D Now with Anaglyph
In a major enhancement, anaglyph will soon be added to nano3D in the form of a firmware upgrade (available to existing customers at no charge). Anaglyph allows users to evaluate the stereoscopic effect using a 2D monitor. Anaglyph can eliminate the need to purchase and transport large and/or expensive 3D monitors for field production. In addition to anaglyph, a 50/50 combine function were added to help judge vertical and horizontal disparities. Daniel Symmes (aka Mr. 3D) comments here about the advantages of anaglyph.

Your investment in nanoFlashes has been enhanced by the introduction of the nano3D!

Building on the highly successful nanoFlash, Convergent Design unveiled today, nano3D, the world’s smallest professional 3D-HD portable recorder/player. nano3D combines two nanoFlash recorders/players, for fully‐synchronized stereoscopic recording and playback. Additionally, nano3D can also be used for simultaneous off‐line/online (high quality + proxy modes) or redundant (2 identical masters) recording.

The diminutive size: 3"(H) x 4.2" (L) x 3.8"(W), lightweight (2 lbs), and lower power (12 W), makes nano3D an ideal choice for almost every 3D camera rig. nano3D utilizes the very high quality full-raster 4:2:2 Sony MPEG2 CODEC, but extends the bit-rate up to 280 Mbps for superb video quality. Compressed video and audio are stored on affordable Compact Flash media (now up to 64GB) in Quicktime or MXF file format, providing universal NLE support, including Avid, Final Cut Pro, Edius, Vegas and Premiere.

As a recorder, nano3D features dual HD-SDI inputs as well as a LTC input for time-code. nano3D supports a wide range of video formats, including 1080i60/50, 1080p30/25/24, and 720p60/50/30/25/24. I-Frame only recording (up to 280 Mbps) guarantees that both the left and right frames are processed identically, for superior 3D rendering. Finally, up to 8-channels of embedded audio per HD-SDI stream can be recorded in uncompressed 24-bit 48KHz format, enabling full HD 5.1 or 7.1 program creation.

As a playback device, nano3D offers the standard dual-stream synchronized HD-SDI output. However, what really sets nano3D apart, is the built-in combiner function which merges the left and right video into one of the popular 3D formats such as side by side, top and bottom, or line by line. The merged video is output over a single HD-SDI cable for display on professional 3D monitors. Furthermore, the addition of a low-cost HD-SDI to HDMI converter enables the 3D HD-SDI stream to be displayed on consumer 3D TVs. This is important, as a large-screen is considered essential for critical analysis of 3D material.

”The nano3D is a significant advance, since for the first time, a low-cost 3D recorder / 3D playback solution will allow the immediate critical analysis of footage on-set, allowing for an immediate confirmation that the scene was recorded properly. This will enable 3D projects to be shot with confidence”, said Dan Keaton, Director of Sales and Marketing for Convergent Design.

“nanoFlash revolutionized the market as an affordable high-quality recorder that could be mounted-on and powered-by, your camera. nanoFlash continues to set the standard in terms of size, weight, power, and quality. We expect nano3D, with synchronized record / playback and built-in stream combiner, will now revolutionize 3D production,” noted Mike Schell, President of Convergent Design.

Why Nano Flash Recorder?
1.Enable a camera with Tape recording mechanism to record in a Tapeless format
2.Record in 4:2:2 from HDMI or HDSDI output of camcorder

Camera Codec
Reference: MPEG-2 Color Sampling

Color sampling refers to selectively extracting information by skipping the color difference signal of some pixels. Applying the principle that the human eye is more sensitive to brightness than hue or saturation, sampling compresses signals by eliminating some pixels from the color difference signals to be read.
The color sampling scheme indicates how many pixels out of a four-pixel area (two pixels vertically by two horizontally) are used as brightness and color difference signal information.

In 4:2:0 color sampling, B-Y (Pb) is read in odd rows of pixels and R-Y (Pr) in even rows. Only information of one pixel out of the four-pixel area is read for B-Y (Pb) and R-Y (Pr), but this scheme is identified as 4:2:0 to distinguish it from 4:1:1 sampling.

3.Allow external audio inputs
4.Reliable recorder in a high vibration application ( Race Cars, Airplanes, helicopters etc)
5.Cost saving in the long run...
    6 x 32G CF cards is under USD1500 + 1 Convergent Design Nano Flash (USD2995) = USD4495
    6 x 32G P2 cards is USD3600
    6 x 32G SxS Cards is USD4800 (more expensive as compared to 1xNanoFlash + 6 x 32G CF cards)
