Convergent Design’s Odyssey7Q Raw OLED Monitor & Recorder is an advanced follow-up to Convergent’s Gemini 4:4:4 Raw monitor/recorder. The Odyssey7Q features a 7.7″ 1280 x 800 OLED display with a 3400:1 contrast ratio and is equipped with advanced image analysis tools, including Waveform and RGB Parade. It includes the Apple ProRes 422 HQ codec (up to 1080p30) and supports several high-speed Raw and HD recorder options, sold separately. It features two built-in SSD slots and records to Convergent Design 2.5″ SSDs only.
The Odyssey7Q has two SDI inputs, two outputs, and two bi-directional SDI ports. It automatically detects the incoming video format and when possible creates an entire recorder/monitor setup based on camera metadata. The bi-directional SDI ports can be assigned as either inputs or outputs via menu selection. When these are assigned as inputs, the monitor can simultaneously stream four separate 1080/30p/60i signals from a multicam setup, and you can monitor all four in a quad-split screen.
The interface is a capacitive touchscreen and simple to navigate, meaning less setup time. Most of the inputs/outputs are on the bottom, and 1/4″ mounting threads are on the sides. An AC adapter is included for continuous power, and compatible IDX, AB and Sony battery plates are available.
