ARRIRAW license for Gemini 444

Hey Guys !

I have the Convergent Design Gemini 4:4:4 and I'm looking to get the ARRIRAW license.
I contacted Convergent Design and they cannot generate any license since they don't have the software anymore to do it. The product is discontinued.

Do you know if it is possible to get or buy the ARRIRAW for this recorder somewhere ?

Would be awesome if you can help me

Cheers,

I have exactly the same problem with sLog&444 licenses for my two PMW-F3’s - yet that involves a bit more hardware logistics, since the license is portable by means of using the secure region of the SxS card - as opposed to a serial number locked RAW license for a FS5, which is generated online, and its still possible to buy a code.

It would be nice if a product which is discontinued would be freed from this licensing hell - as I work with programmable chips and the software there is also locked to certain parts/families/versions, the usual practice is that one can get a full-support license for vintage parts / software versions, as the manufacturer has released universal activation codes for their old software.

I doubt Convergent really has no software for it. They are just refusing to support their customer (who already paid), same way as Sony does not care about the ones who own their gear. Next time, we have to choose a better brand.
