New at NAB: AJA Video Systems and Convergent Design Announce Support for AJA Raw on Odyssey7Q+ Recorder


AJA Video Systems and Convergent Design today announced that the Odyssey7Q+ monitor/recorder will support the CION digital cinema production camera’s AJA Raw file format. AJA Raw is the newest format to be supported in Convergent Design’s Odyssey7Q+ monitor/recorder, along with Canon Cinema RAW, Sony FS RAW, ARRIRAW and more. A demonstration of the CION-to-Odyssey AJA Raw recording workflow will be demonstrated throughout NAB, April 13-16, at the AJA booth (#SL2505) as well as in the Convergent Design booth (#C8012).

“Since AJA first announced CION, our customers have been very enthusiastic and were asking us to support it,” said Mike Schell, President, Convergent Design. “CION is a beautiful camera that produces pristine images. Along with our AJA RAW record capabilities, we can integrate with CION the Odyssey7Q+’s image analysis tools for focus, color and exposure, as well as its accurate OLED monitor. Together the CION and the Odyssey7Q+ make a complete professional image capture system.”

“Since its introduction, CION has supported Raw output via Thunderbolt and SDI. In addition to CION’s in-camera ability to shoot ProRes, Odyssey7Q+ offers up a very light-weight, portable way to record our uncompressed AJA Raw format,” said Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems. “Many of our customers shoot with different cameras, often on the same shoot, to optimally capture whatever best fits the job. We’re excited that they now have the option to record AJA Raw to a product that is probably already a part of their standard toolkit.”

The AJA Raw format offers simple post production workflow options as it is processed into a common DNG file wrapper supported by all major content creation, editing and finishing tools, as well as AJA’s Control Room software.
