If you are looking for a capable, versatile advanced monitor for your use, the
Convergent Design Odyssey 7Q+ is the right solution for you. This model comes with a whole range of features that will
amaze you and enhance your video recording experience. It supports different file formats including Apple ProRes, Uncompressed DPX and RAW (this includes with Record Options). You can record these files
through HDMI and SDI using different recording modes such as HD/UHD/2K and 4K. The OLED monitor available with this model gives the best imaging results with 1280x800 pixels that define colors
accurately, extending the color gamut and displaying true blacks as it is.
The Odyssey 7Q+ comes with extensive tools for image analysis including RGB Histogram, Pixel Zoom, a three-mode Focus Assist, an RGB waveform and a monitoring LUTs. The monitor also comes with a
Multi-Stream Monitoring Mode that makes it possible to view up to 4 HD videos at once in a split-screen or live-switching them in full-screen mode. This is a portable model weighing just over a
pound and is an inch thick, making it a great option for in-field assignments. The Odyssey 7Q+ can run on any power source that ranges between 6.5 and 34 volts.
There is no other recorder in the world that can record in as many formats as the Odyssey 7Q+. It records in HD/2K up to 60p and in UHD/4K up to 30p. The monitor can also record HD Apple ProRes422
and provides other record options for rent or purchase including Canon Cinema RAW (C500), RAW, ARRIRAW (ALEXA) and Sony FS RAW (FS7/FS700 and POV RAW). With the Canon Cinema RAW and FS RAW, the
monitor also allows for the conversion of RAW signals into video Apple ProRes 422(HQ). For a high data load and long hours of recording, the monitor comes with 2 SSD slots that support up to 1TB sizes.
Monitoring and Multi-Stream Monitoring
The Odyssey 7Q+ comes with a 1280x800 resolution, 7.7" OLED screen that is highly accurate on colors. To complement its features, the model comes with tools for analyzing images and these include a
programmable False Color, a histogram, a waveform, and Pixel Zoom that can be finger-dragged. Other image analysis tools included are a three -mode Focus Assist and LUTs, which are used in providing
better views of the LOG and RAW modes. Programmable LUTs will be released shortly. With the Odyssey 7Q+, you can also view as many as four HD video signals concurrently by quad-splitting the screen
or live-switching the videos in Full Screen Mode. This makes the camera a great option for internet streamed productions and multi-camera shoots.
Odyssey 7Q+ remains relevant with improved camera recording options. This is so since regular firmware updates on the model continue to expand its capabilities making it applicable today and
in the future. Odyssey 7Q+ monitors are compatible with all modern cameras, and once you add an SSD, the monitor is ready to shoot.
The Full Deck controls coupled with the touchscreen enhances the playback of clips. With an
Odyssey 7Q+ monitor, you can playback all formats instantly once you need to. There are clip markers on
ProRes files that help highlight important materials. The monitor also makes it possible to access analysis tools on Play mode.
Versatile and Affordable
When features are compared against price, no modern camera will beat the Odyssey 7Q+, which ranks as a top on-camera model.
Design and Power
The Odyssey 7Q+ has been cleverly designed using a magnesium alloy. This makes the case durable and easy to lift at slightly over 560gms. The monitor also has a low power consumption rate at 8-19W
and can run with anything between 6.5-34V. Its design involves no fans and hence lacks elements such as noise which makes it quite a comfortable monitor to use.

|Convergent Design Odyssey 7Q+ Review
** Admin ** by 14/06/2017
Odyssey7Q+ Price Reduced to an affordable level & Free Titan HD Extract Upgrade
Convergent Design announced a price reduction of their popular Odyssey7Q+ recorder/monitor to $1495 ($USD). Additionally, all Odyssey7Q/7Q+ and Apollo owners will receive our Titan HD Extract upgrade at no additional charge.
Convergent Design continues to raise the bar among professional recorder/monitor products. The Odyssey7Q+ features a rugged cast magnesium case, gorgeous OLED
display, best-in-class monitoring tools, 3D LUT support, and ProRes Proxy to ProRes 4444 recording, clearly setting it apart from the crowd. Comprehensive
RAW support and the Apollo multi-channel recording options elevate the Odyssey7Q+ to the premiere class.
Unquestionably, the Odyssey7Q+ with the Odyssey RAW Bundle upgrade offers the most comprehensive RAW support available on the market, including full support
for ARRIRAW, Canon RAW, Sony FS series RAW, POV RAW and Panasonic VariCam LT (and soon AU-EVA1) RAW. The dual SSD architecture, found exclusively on the
Odyssey7Q+, enables RAW recording and playback of 2Kp240 and 4Kp60. RAW to ProRes recording is also supported for a variety of different cameras.
The Odyssey Apollo Option (paid upgrade) enables quad-channel HD / dual-channel 4Kp30 recording and playback. Essentially, four recorders in one. The Odyssey
Apollo Option dramatically reduces the amount of gear required for multi-camera production. Most importantly, the Apollo Option saves hours of time in
post-production by recording all streams to a common CODEC, with the same timecode and consistent file naming and starting frame. Apollo's exclusive AV
Align feature can correct audio/video sync issues commonly found in multi-camera productions that use a mixture of different cameras.
Finally, Titan HD Extract, formerly priced at $795, is now available as a free upgrade to all Odyssey7Q/7Q+ and Apollo owners. Titan HD Extract empowers users
to effectively create multi-camera productions from a single 4K camera. Titan records three streams from a single 4K source: one HD downscale of the entire 4K
raster and two HD extracts based on user-defined movable windows (within the 4K image). Multi-camera production has never been more simple and cost-effective.
Convergent Design continues to raise the bar. Today, however, the bar to owning industry best monitor/ recorder, the Odyssey7Q+, has been significantly lowered to $1495.
