Our company was founded in 2000 by Mike Schell, an electrical engineer who previously worked in the field of electronic circuit design, specifically in the development of RAM memory chips. The company's original product line consisted of SD/HD signal converters and has evolved through many generations of products to the line of industry benchmark recorder/monitors that we produce for the film and television industries today. Convergent Design made a name for itself in the industry with products like the Flash XDR HD/SD video recorder that was introduced in 2008 and the highly successful nanoFlash in 2009, which is a prized possession of industry professionals worldwide to this day.
Field Monitoring Accessories
Accessories and spare parts for popular Field Recorder-Monitors from Atomos, Blackmagic, AJA and SmallHD.
When out on a shoot, it's not always easy to view the camera's built in LCD monitor on the back. It's either not bright enough or too small for a group of people to see, plus, usuallly has very basic features to help you actually monitor your current situation for lighting etc.
Atomos' range of field monitors can also double as recorders in some models, like the Ninja V, which allows you to bypass recording limits on DSLR and DSLM cameras for indefinite recording length and sometimes, a bump up in colour.
SmallHD is now part of the Teradek family, as such, a few of the models of monitors now come with Teradek Bolt functionality for wireless transmission, so you don't have to remain static when monitoring or even operating the camera itself.
