(February 27, 2014, Colorado Springs) There are many improvements and added functions in our Odyssey7Q Firmware Update. Sony FS700 4K RAW recording, additional Canon C500 recording formats, and a host of small functions and minor fixes. The most anticipated new function is the popular compressed recording format to complement all of our other recording functions.
One great feature of the Odyssey7Q is the high quality monitor in a slim, lightweight package that can be run off a small battery. Another unique feature is its ability to show multiple HD camera signals at once using the Multi-Stream viewing function. Now these two aspects of the Odyssey7Q can be utilized in conjunction with our new Wireless Battery Plate. This plate attaches to the back of the Odyssey7Q and can hold two Teradek Bolt wireless video receivers, plus battery mounts to power both receivers and the Odyssey7Q. The Wireless Battery Plates are available with various battery mounts, including Sony L, Sony U, Canon, Panasonic, JVC, as well as Anton Bauer and V-Lock. They also are delivered as complete kits with mounting hardware and cabling for power and video.
Watch the video to see how clean and functional this easily handheld kit can be for your next production.
The Odyssey7Q is an excellent monitor. It features an OLED panel, high resolution, lot of scopes and image analysis tools, etc. It also has tons of processing power, as it is a full 4K digital cinema RAW video recorder. When not using that processing power to record 4K, the Odyssey7Q can use it to add another monitoring function unprecedented in a device this size and price: Multi-Stream. The Odyssey can accept up to four full HD video inputs and either show them by switching sequentially through the inputs or by presenting all four simultaneously on the screen in quadrants. These HD monitoring signals are also passed on to the SDI and HDMI outputs of the Odyssey7Q. And these features are included in the Odyssey7Q at no additional cost.

(Colorado Springs, CO) Convergent Design’s Odyssey7Q is the most capable portable monitor/recorder on the market. It can capture and display the signals from more camera systems than any other product. That capability will soon be increased even more as we announce that recording of the 4K RAW signal from the Sony PMW-FS700 will be available in the Odyssey7Q.
4K RAW recording will be a part of the FS700 Record Option on the Odyssey7Q. It will be made available as part of the upcoming February Firmware Update for the Odyssey7Q. Any current owner of the FS700 Record Option will receive the 4K RAW capability as part of the firmware update and at no additional cost.
To use the FS700 Record Option on the Odyssey7Q, an FS700R camera or an FS700 with RAW upgrade from Sony is required. In 4K RAW mode, the FS700 can output 4096x2160 up to 60p. This signal can now be captured on the Odyssey7Q. With the FS700 Record Option the Odyssey7Q can also record 2K RAW (2048x1080) at frame rates up to 240p.
