The Odyssey7Q features a 7.7” OLED screen with 1280x800 resolution. The OLED display provides true blacks and accurate colors. A full complement of image analysis tools include a waveform (luma or RGB parade), a histogram (luma or RGB parade), zebra, programmable False Color, Pixel Zoom with finger drag, a three-mode Focus Assist and LUTs.

The included LUTs provide proper viewing of the LOG and RAW modes available from numerous popular cameras, with programmable LUTs coming in the future. These tools are controlled by the easy to use touchscreen interface and are available to view on the OLED or optionally on the SDI and HDMI video outputs of the Odyssey7Q.


View up to four HD video signals at once as a quad-split screen, or live-switch between inputs. Great for multi-camera shoots and live streaming.


All formats are available for immediate playback directly on the Odyssey7Q. Full deck controls or tablet-style touchscreen scrubbing through clips makes playback quick and easy. On ProRes files, clip markers are available to quickly pinpoint important material. Image Analysis Tools are also available in Play Mode.

LUT Support

The Odyssey LUT System is the most powerful and versatile design available in a single device. Use preloaded LUTs, load from our website LUT Library or design your own and import them using our free CD 3D-LUT Converter App. Send LUTs to the Odyssey screen, to the Image Analysis Tools or to the SDI and HDMI outputs. The Odyssey LUT System allows great adjustability combined with ease of use.

Convergent Design has created an Odyssey LUT System resource page, with illustrations, links to articles and videos, the LUT Library and more.

Focus Assist

Focus Assist mode enhances an image to indicate elements within the frame with sharp edges that define focus. The Odyssey Focus Assist features three display modes. Edge+Video show the video image with sharp edges highlighted in color (aka Peaking”). Edge Only shows only the sharp edges. Edge Enhanced shows some picture information for framing, with sharp edges highlighted in color. In all modes sensitivity and edge color are programmable.

Pixel Zoom

Pixel Zoom enlarges a section of the image on the OLED panel to better judge focus and other aspects of the image. The native resolution of the HD image area on the OLED panel is 1280x720. Pushing the Pixel Zoom button once enlarges the image to fit a 1280x720 window within an HD 1920x1080 frame. Pushing the Pixel Zoom button again enlarges the image so that a 1280x720 window is cut from that native resolution of the image if greater than HD (ie, 1280x720 window within 4096x2160) or doubles up pixels to make the image larger in an HD frame. The Odyssey Pixel Zoom offers the unique function of allowing the enlarged window to be moved within the image frame simply by dragging a finger or stylus on the OLED screen.


A Zebra stripe is an exposure tool to indicate any part of an image at or above a particular brightness.


A Histogram is an exposure tool indicating brightness by volume across a horizontal plane. The brighter the image the farther it is to the right. The more of an image registering at a particular brightness the taller the line graph at that level. The Odyssey Histogram can be set to measure overall brightness (Luma) or the individual color channel brightness (RGB Parade).


An exposure tool that graphically measures the brightness of the image across the frame. The Odyssey Waveform can be set to measure overall brightness (Luma) or the individual color channel brightness (RGB Parade).

False Color

False Color is an exposure reference tool, attributing different colors to various brightness portions of the image. The OdysseyFalse Color mode features five different colors with programmable levels, as well as a monochrome grey scale tone map to register the relative brightness of the rest of the image.

Frame Guides

Frame Guides indicate frame line cutoffs for non-16:9 (aka 1.77) aspect images. The Odyssey Frame Guides include 2.39, 1.85 and 1.33 frames, and a future update will allow programmable frames.

Image Flip

Image flip automatically adjusts the display to the upright position so that the device can be used in a variety of positions and configurations.

  • I just had to let you know how thrilled I am with my new Odyssey....the ease operation is uncanny.It’s all right there. And what a picture! If I only used it as a monitor it would have been money well spent, but the features, the readouts, the operational ergonomics is stellar.
