Convergent Design is announcing two exciting new monitor/recorder products: Odyssey7 and Odyssey7Q. The Odyssey family is intended to follow users as they journey through their careers from DSLRs to high-end 4K raw cine cameras, hugging the ever-changing camera technology curve and adapting to change without invasive hardware changes or costly upgrades. The Odyssey series combines Convergent Design’s knowledge and experience of both broadcast and cinematography recorders, while adding the capabilities of a high-end professional monitor.

The Odyssey family is a professional 7.7” OLED monitor with high-end monitor features, including Waveform, Zebras, Histogram, Vectorscope, Focus Assist, False Color, Timecode Display and Audio Level Meters, and 1:1 Pixel mode. Odyssey7 includes HDMI I/O, and SD/HD/3G-SDI I/O; in both single and dual link configurations. As you have come to expect from Convergent Design, Odyssey is low power, lightweight and comes in a rugged magnesium case.

The Odyssey7Q adds two bi-directional SDI’s (2-In, 2-I/O, 2-Out), enabling a 4K@60fps-ready option. Additional computational power supports recording/playback of up to four-compressed HD/2K simultaneously, support for one video stream up to 120fps and concurrent proxy and raw recording. Odyssey7Q includes a built-in Quad Splitter and Four-Channel Live Switcher.

The Odyssey7Q can be upgraded to a full professional recorder with the following options: Uncompressed HD/2K RGB 444 (up to 60p), 2K/HD Raw, ARRIRAW (full 16:9 and 4:3 support), Canon 4K Raw, and Sony Raw for the FS700.
