The Odyssey7Q boasts a 7.7" 1280 x 800 LCD panel producing a 3400:1 contrast ratio. It is desgined with advanced image analysis tools, Vectorscope, Waveform, and RGB Parade. The monitor / recorder comes with a compressed DNxHD codec included and supports several high-speed RAW and HD recorder options that are sold separately. The included DNxHD codec can record up to 1080p60/50 10-bit 4:2:2. The firmware for the codec is already preloaded and is activated once you install a Convergent SSD. The monitor supports Convergent Design 2.5" SSDs only. The Odyssey7Q features two SDI inputs, two outputs, and two bi-directional SDI ports. It will detect the incoming video format and when possible, creates an entire recorder/monitor setup based on camera metadata. The bi-directional SDI ports can be programed as either inputs or outputs through the menu. When assigned as inputs, the monitor can simultaneously stream four separate 1080/30p/60i signals from a multicam arrangement. You can monitor all four in a quad-split screen, and each signal gets compressed and recorded as an individual .MOV file. The user interface is a capacitive touchscreen. All the controls can be remotely accessed with an iPhone or Android device via Bluetooth. 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 sold seperately.
As a recorder, Odyssey7Q supports a wide range of recording formats including Avid DNxHD (up to 120fps), uncompressed HD/2K RGB 444 (up to 60p), 2K/HD Raw, ARRIRAW (4:3 and 16:9), and Canon 4K Raw. All recording formats are extra-cost options. New 2.5" highly-reliable “Server-Grade” SSD’s in 256GB and 512GB support read/write bandwidths in excess of 500 MBytes/sec per drive, enabling Canon 4K Raw at 60 fps on a single recorder. The unique dual SSD architecture can be configured in spanning mode (to double record times), RAID 1 mode, for auto-backup or in RAID 0 mode for data-rates in excess of 1 GByte/sec.
The Odyssey 7Q ships as a monitor only, which can be upgraded to a recorder as needed. For the first time, support for recording options can be purchased outright or “rented” at competitive rates. Add optional features anytime from anywhere, via a secure online purchase from the Convergent Design website to obtain an activation key, provided at the point of purchase and you’re up and running. Rental of recording options (ARRIRAW, for example) provides many benefits including no shipping hassles, no insurance certificates, and none of the scheduling issues of traditional rentals. Recording options are rented in 24-hour blocks, with unused blocks available for future use.
