Convergent Design set to Release Odyssey7 & Odyssey7Q Firmware Update


Convergent Design will release a firmware update for the Odyssey7 and Odyssey7Q on July 21st at 10am Mountain Standard Time. This release adds features, improves current functions and fixes some previous issues.

Highlights of the firmware update include:

Advanced Playback Controls
This is a complete revamp of the Playback system. Standard deck-style controls for Play/Pause, single-frame step forward or step-back, and skip forward or back to next/pervious clip. Additionally, an interactive scrub bar allows the user to quickly access any section of a clip simply by dragging a finger across the OLED touchscreen. All recordable formats are supported and more detailed information is noted in the Play List.

Expanded HD Video Format Support In Apple ProRes 422(HQ)
In addition to 1080p video, the Odyssey7 and Odyssey7Q now support 1080i and 720p signals, as well as 24p signals embedded within 1080i video streams using “3:2 Pulldown”. New record formats in Apple ProRes 422(HQ) include: 1080/60i, 1080/50i, 1080/(24 over)60i, 720/60p, 720/50p. Additionally, upon selecting 3:2 PULLDOWN, the Odyssey7 and Odyssey7Q will remove the excess material and record a pure 1080/24p video stream for more efficient storage and ease of post.

Monitoring LUTs For HD Video
Monitoring LUTs for the LOG outputs from several popular cameras are now supported in HD video recording in both Apple ProRes 422(HQ) and Uncompressed DPX (Odyssey7Q only). Cameras and LOG formats supported include ARRI ALEXA (Log-C), Canon C100/300/500 (C-Log), Sony F3 (S-Log), Sony F5/F55 (S-Log2), Sony F5/F55 (S-Log3) and Sony FS700 (S-Log2). All monitoring LUTs conform selected Log signals to REC709. Monitoring LUTs are applied to the OLED screen, video outputs and Image Analysis tools, but not to the recorded files. read more...
