New Prices and Compressed Codecs Now Included with Odyssey7 & 7Q Monitors:

Convergent Design have made some significant changes to its Odyssey monitor series lineup introduced at NAB 2013 and now announce the full pricing for the Odyssey7 and Odyssey7Q monitors.

Most notably, DNxHD and any future supported compressed codecs (up to 1080p60 422) will now be included at no additional cost in the base price of the Odyssey. There is no additional firmware option to purchase for DNxHD support. Simply insert a Convergent Design SSD into the monitor and you have activated recording features in both Odyssey7 and Odyssey7Q.

In addition, Odyssey7 will now be a gorgeous 7.7″ OLED monitor with compressed recording capabilities only. Any additional extra cost options and features will ONLY be available on the Odyssey7Q. This makes Odyssey7 a simple solution for DSLR and broadcast, and avoids confusion between it and it’s 7Q counterpart.

Convergent Design is offering all extra cost options and features available to Odyssey7Q customers at a full-license rate, as well as a per-day rental fee, and is reflected as such in the pricing chart below. While the Odyssey7 and Odyssey7Q monitors and 2.5″ SSD media are available through our large Dealer Network, recording options are accessible via the Convergent Design website 24/7 – giving users ultimate flexibility along their journey.

Note: US list prices shown below; prices will vary in different countries.
