Two Free 256GB SSDs Included with Odyssey7Q+

7Q-logo-300x64From our friends at Convergent Design, a DVi sponsor:

Any recorder is only as good as the media it records to. Convergent Design believes that the only safe and proper way to capture professional video and RAW data from today’s modern motion picture cameras is to use media that one can absolutely trust. All Odyssey SSDs are tested, certified and warrantied to work with our Odyssey monitor/recorders. Odyssey SSDs are available in 256GB, 512GB and 1TB. All Odyssey SSDs are compatible with all of the files the Odyssey monitor/recorders can capture, no matter the resolution, frame rate, codec, format, RAW data structure, or bit rate. Odyssey SSDs are the most reliable media available for any monitor/recorder.

For a limited time, the Odyssey7Q+ monitor/recorder will ship with two free 256GB Odyssey SSDs included. With two 256GB SSDs, the Odyssey7Q+ can record more than an hour of 4K Apple ProRes and more than five hours of HD Apple ProRes. Additionally, two 256GB Odyssey SSDs allow for enough data capture speed to record 4K60p RAW from the FS7, FS700, and C500 as well as 2K240p RAW from the FS7 and FS700. All of the other formats the Odyssey7Q+ can capture are also supported. With two SSDs, one can be downloading files while the other is used to record more material, eliminating downtime and delays at the end of the shooting day.

This limited time deal is for the Odyssey7Q+ only. The two 256GB Odyssey SSDs (a $790 value) will ship in the box with the Odyssey7Q+.

Odyssey SSD Three-Year Warranty

Odyssey SSDs are the most reliable media available for any monitor/recorder. They have high sustained read & write speeds to capture high data loads without error and offload them quickly. Odyssey SSDs are rated for long life with high performance throughout, and include Power-Loss Protection so that files are not corrupted or lost if the recorder loses power. They are built to robust and consistent standards set and maintained by Convergent Design.

With the confidence of the performance and reliability of the Odyssey SSDs, Convergent Design has extended the warranty period to three full years. All new Odyssey SSDs will ship with the three-year warranty. For the thousands of Odyssey SSDs currently in use, the next firmware release for the Odyssey monitor/recorders will include an update of the warranty end date that is stored on the Odyssey SSDs. Our next firmware release will automatically update the SSDs when they are inserted into an Odyssey monitor/recorder.

Convergent Design warrants Odyssey SSDs to maintain full read/write performance and stated capacity for a period of 3 years. Physical and/or electrical damage to the SSDs are excluded from this warranty.

Odyssey7Q+ Includes HDMI Cable

Many Odyssey7Q+ owners wish to use their monitor/recorders on small cameras such as the Panasonic GH4 and the Sony A7S. Using thick, heavy HDMI cables can prove difficult, so beginning today Convergent Design will include an HDMI cable solution with every Odyssey7Q+. This cable is three feet long and thin enough to be able to coil up any excess behind the Odyssey monitor/recorder.
