OLED Monitor and Professional Recorder
The Odyssey7Q combines Convergent Design's knowledge and experience of both broadcast and cinematography recorders, while adding the capabilities of a high-end professional monitor.

Like Odyssey7, Odyssey7Q is a brilliant 7.7" OLED monitor with 3400:1 contrast and true blacks. The 1280x800 monitor has comprehensive monitoring tools, and an iPhone/Android app for remote control and status. Turn your Odyssey monitor into a professional recorder by inserting the 2.5" SSD media, and begin capturing DNxHD.

Add Options to your Odyssey7Q, including ARRIRAW, Canon C500 Raw, Sony FS700 Raw, Quad-Stream HD and more; purchase a full-license, or simply RENT options on a daily basis, and industry first! Odyssey's unique dual SSD architecture, coupled with 960GB SSD media, gives you long record times and redundant recording options.
