Multicam Video Recorder, Switcher and Monitor All In One! – Convergent Design Apollo Recorder Review

The Convergent Design’s Apollo recorder is so much more than a simple video recorder. With Apollo, you can record 1 or 2 4K cameras or 4 different 1080p camera signals along with a live edit!

FINAL THOUGHTS

If you need to record and or stream several cameras, there is nothing else on the market like Apollo right now. I think the $3000 is a worthy investment if your productions require multicam. The time I’ve been able to save by using this device has been invaluable and for what it does, the Apollo is a great tool.
