Convergent Design Odyssey7Q to record FS700 4K RAW

17th Feb 2014 - (Colorado Springs, CO)  Convergent Design’s Odyssey7Q is the most capable portable monitor/recorder on the market.  It can capture and display the signals from more camera systems than any other product.  That capability will soon be increased even more as we announce that recording of the 4K RAW signal from the Sony PMW-FS700 will be available in the Odyssey7Q.

4K RAW recording will be a part of the FS700 Record Option on the Odyssey7Q.  It will be made available as part of the upcoming February Firmware Update for the Odyssey7Q.  Any current owner of the FS700 Record Option will receive the 4K RAW capability as part of the firmware update and at no additional cost.

To use the FS700 Record Option on the Odyssey7Q, an FS700R camera or an FS700 with RAW upgrade from Sony is required.  In 4K RAW mode, the FS700 can output 4096x2160 up to 60p.  This signal can now be captured on the Odyssey7Q.  With the FS700 Record Option the Odyssey7Q can also record 2K RAW (2048x1080) at frame rates up to 240p
