Convergent Design's Odyssey7 RAW Monitor & Recorder is an advanced follow-up to Convergent's Gemini 4:4:4 RAW monitor/recorder. The Odyssey7 features a 7.7" 1280 x 800 OLED with a 3400:1 contrast ratio and is equipped with advanced image analysis tools, including Vectorscope, Waveform, and RGB Parade. A compressed DNxHD codec is included and 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 Odyssey7 supports Convergent Design 2.5" SSDs only and has two built-in SSD slots. The monitor features two SDI inputs and two outputs and automatically detects the incoming video format upon input and when possible creates an entire recorder/monitor setup based on camera metadata.

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.
