nanoFlash is the world's smallest, lightest, lowest-power, professional HD/SD recorder/player. The nanoFlash from Convergent Design represents a huge leap forward in tapeless workflows. Easily mounted to your camera, nanoFlash is designed to record higher quality images than the camera itself, by capturing never-compressed video/audio from the HD-SDI or HDMI output. nanoFlash utilizes the very high-quality Sony XDCAM 422 CODEC, recording the video/audio onto affordable and readily available Compact Flash Media, at up to 160Mbps (Long-GOP) or 220 Mbps (I-Frame).
