The Odyssey family is a professional 7.7" OLED monitor with high-end monitor features, including Waveform, Zebras, Histogram, Vectorscope, Focus Assist, False Color, Timecode Display and Audio Level Meters, and 1:1 Pixel mode. Odyssey7 includes HDMI I/O, and SD/HD/3G-SDI I/O; in both single and dual link configurations. As you have come to expect from Convergent Design, Odyssey is low power, lightweight and comes in a rugged magnesium case.
The Odyssey7Q adds two bi-directional SDI’s (2-In, 2-I/O, 2-Out), enabling a 4K@60fps-ready option. Additional computational power supports recording/playback of up to four-compressed HD/2K simultaneously, support for one video stream up to 120fps and concurrent proxy and raw recording. Odyssey7Q includes a built-in Quad Splitter and Four-Channel Live Switcher.
The Odyssey7Q adds the following important features:
Ability to monitor four separate video streams simultaneously.
Ability to record, with an extra cost feature, four separate video steams (cameras), simultaneously, to a compressed codec (initially Avid DNxHD) up to 30 fps for each.
Ability to playback simultaneously, four separate video streams, recorded in a compressed codec.
Ability to record, with extra cost options, ARRIRAW or Canon Cinema Raw, plus a Proxy file,
with the same filename, same timecode, same starting and ending points, to Avid DNxHD-36 simultaneously. The added computational ability of the Odyssey7Q supports this important feature. Avid DNxHD-36 is the industry standard for offline (Proxy) recording.
Ability to display various image analysis tools in four separate quadrants.
This may or may not be a feature of the Odyssey7 also; this is “to be determined”.
In the Odyssey7, image analysis tools, such as Waveform Monitor may be displayed in either
full screen or as a Picture in Picture (PIP) overlay.
Ability to record 4K, via four separate HD-SDI single-link camera outputs, which some 4K cameras provide, such as the Sony F55.
Ability to output to true 4K Monitors, via four separate HD-SDI single-link outputs,
which is the industry standard for 4K Monitoring.
The Odyssey7Q supports up to four HD-SDI 3G Inputs and two HD-SDI 3G outputs or up to two HD-SDI 3G inputs and four HD-SDI 3G outputs.
The Odyssey7Q adds two bi-directional HD-SDI 3G connectors to the 2 inputs and 2 outputs of the Odyssey7. Both models have HDMI input and HDMI output.
Ability to support high frame rates, up to 120 fps in both compressed codecs
and full uncompressed.
(The Odyssey7 supports up to 120 fps in full uncompressed only, not in compressed.)
The Odyssey7Q will also support recording, with an extra cost feature, up to 240 fps,
from certain cameras in specific modes, such as HD or 2K.
Stay tuned for further important announcements.
The Odyssey7Q has a built-in Four-Channel Live Switcher.
Both the Odyssey7 and Odyssey7Q are monitors only, but both can be upgraded to record via extra cost options.
The Odyssey7 records a maximum of one video stream,
and the Odyssey7Q supports up to four video streams.
