Panasonic announced a free firmware update that adds a 2K RAW up to 240fps to the VariCam LT. All available RAW outputs will be supported by Convergent Design in the Raw Bundle for Odyssey7Q+ and Odyssey7Q via a free firmware update in June 2017.

"We are excited to announce our continued support for the Panasonic VariCam LT. The 2K 240fps update fits nicely into the Odyssey Raw Bundle high frame rate support, and adds versatility to the VariCam LT. The Odyssey and VariCam LT are an ideal pairing and we look forward to our joint firmware release," said Mike Schell, President of Convergent Design.

Convergent Design will also release free firmware in May supporting Avid DNxHD 4:2:2 for the Odyssey7Q+ and Odyssey7Q in single-channel recording, and for Apollo and Apollo Option multi-camera HD. This upcoming release will support bit rates of 220Mb and 145Mb up to 60p from HD video sources. Broadcast applications, especially in Apollo multi-camera operation, will enjoy a native Avid workflow.

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 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.

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.
