Record 4k RAW and monitor with some of the best quality image industry wide.


  • The Odyssey7Q+ is the most advanced, most capable, most versatile monitor/recorder in the world. The Odyssey7Q+ can record HD/2K/UHD/4K. It can record them via SDI and HDMI. It can record RAW (with Record Options), uncompressed DPX, and Apple ProRes 422 (HQ). The Odyssey7Q+ features an OLED 1280x800 monitor with true blacks, accurate colours, extended colour gamut and a 176-degree viewing angle.

    Along with the best image in the industry, the Odyssey7Q+ also features an extensive array of image analysis tools, including an RGB waveform, RGB Histogram, False Colour, Pixel Zoom with finger drag, three-mode Focus Assist and monitoring LUTs.

    The unique Multi-Stream Monitoring mode allows up to four HD video inputs to be viewed at once in a quad-split view or to be live-switched between in full screen. The Odyssey7Q+ weighs a little over one pound, is just one inch thick and can run on any power source from 6.5-34 volts.

    From rapid wake-up to power protection, Convergent Design 2.5” SSDs don’t miss a frame. Our premium drives have proven reliability. All Odyssey SSDs are individually tested by Convergent Design for full compatibility with the Odyssey monitor/recorders. Failures of Odyssey SSDs are nearly nonexistent. In the initial testing phase, Convergent Design has rejected just 0.2% of the assembled units before shipping them to clients. 

    Odyssey SSDs are available in 256GB, 512GB and 1TB capacities. Other memory systems with similar speed capabilities but without the data protection of the Odyssey SSDs are comparable in price. Some memory devices can be many times the cost, and others do not offer the reliability of solid state media.

    From burst length to cue depth, there is a bevvy of technical considerations taken to ensure maximum performance.

    Convergent Design SSDs will recover and close clips in the event of a lost power. Sata Adapter Not Included: See USB 3.0 SSD Adapter. Also recommended, Seagate GoFlex Thunderbolt Adapter (STAE121)

    At Convergent Design we take great pride in the products we design and manufacture. Our products are developed, designed, manufactured, tested and serviced in our facility in Colorado Springs, CO by product designers, engineers and technicians that truly care about the quality and commitment that goes into every unit.
    You can take pride in knowing that your Convergent Design device is manufactured to the highest possible standards and supported by our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.

    The Odyssey7Q+ is supplied with a Convergent Design AC power supply (replacement part CD-OD-AC-PS). This is a universal switching power supply that can be used throughout the world, and comes complete with several interchangeable plug connectors. Only use a Convergent Design AC power supply on the Odyssey7Q+. The Odyssey7Q+ can accept DC power ranging from 6.5-34v. Depending on monitor and record modes, the power draw from the Odyssey7Q+ can range from 8-15w.
