Panasonic Lumix GH4, 4K Video to Odyssey?

Will this work? GH4 ouputs, I think, 10 bit 4:2:2 in 4K but you need an external recorder.

No, the Odyssey does not currently support recording 4K video from the GH4, only 1080p at ProRes HQ.

I believe CD representatives have said they intend to add support for 4K recording from the Panasonic GH4 and Sony A7S on the Odyssey 7Q.

I am sure they will too, however the question now becomes when will it be available, and will it require the YAGH? More than likely, yes. I can't see the Odyssey 7Q supporting 4K over HDMI without a hardware upgrade to the HDMI connection, but that remains to be discovered. No one knows for sure that I have talked to.

I was told several months ago the the Odyssey 7Q would include 4k codec.
But, I think I will wait for the Atomos Shogun.

What we need is a low cost HDMI cable protector.
Perhaps one with a base and clamp on the connector at the camera port.

I'm sure you were...but compressed 4K won't be in the next firmware update, so you have to wait for the one after the next (or possibly on down the line). And even then you would need the quad input support for getting the signal from the YAGH, and who knows when that is planned for release.

Re: Panasonic Lumix GH4, 4K Video to Odyssey?

Dear Friends,

We are working hard to add support for recording 4K from a variety of cameras, specifically the Sony F55 and the GH4 + YAGH.

And we will provide, via a free firmware update, a feature that will record 4K to a compressed 4K codec.

Thus, the base model Odyssey7Q will support recording 4K from the above cameras; no extra cost option will be required.

And as soon as practical, we will add 4K Compressed Recording to our C500 Option and our FS700 Option.

We will make a formal announcement as soon as possible.

Respectfully,

Re: Panasonic Lumix GH4, 4K Video to Odyssey?

Looking forward to that Dan. BTW - why no cases for the media. It's expensive and really should come with a protective case as they are proprietary and don't fit a standard SSD case. How on earth do you protect the things on the road? You also don't make a proper drive caddy that could be permanently mounted to a computer. Sorry to hijack the thread (a bit)

Respectfully,

Any expected release time for the GH4+YAGHE 4K option. Should it will be 4.2.2. 10 bit 24/25p, from HDMI or SDI. 4069x2064 or 3840x2160.

Almost a new project coming to us and we should take the decision before the end of September.

Thanks so much!
