Convergent Design Odyssey7Q Recorder/Monitor

Convergent Design's Odyssey7Q RAW 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 Vectorscope, Waveform, and RGB Parade. 

Add to kit list

The Odyssey7Q has two SDI inputs, two outputs, and two bi-directional HMDI 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. You can monitor all four in a quad-split screen, and each signal gets compressed and recorded as an individual .MOV file.  

The interface is a capacitive touchscreen and simple to navigate, meaning less setup time. All the controls can also 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 adaptor is included for continuous power, and compatible IDX,
