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 LCD with a 3400:1 contrast ratio and is equipped with advanced image analysis tools, including Vectorscope, Waveform, and RGB Parade. The monitor comes with a compressed DNxHD codec included and also supports several high-speed RAW and HD recorder options, sold separately. The included DNxHD codec will record up to 1080p60/50 10-bit 4:2:2. The firmware for the codec is preloaded and gets activated once you install a Convergent SSD. The monitor supports Convergent Design 2.5" SSDs only and has two built-in SSD slots.

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. 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 adapter is included for continuous power, and compatible IDX, AB and Sony battery plates are available.
