Half Price Raw, $495 for a Limited Time

Odyssey and Apollo Upgrades

Convergent Design’s Odyssey7Q+ and Odyssey7Q offer the industry's most comprehensive RAW support. Only the Odyssey RAW Bundle offers RAW support for more than 5 camera manufacturers (including ARRI, Canon, Sony, Panasonic, IO Industries, and IndieCam) and over 10 camera models, making it the most versatile and affordable solution for professional use. With an average free firmware update every 2.5 months since shipping in January 2014, both the Odyssey and the RAW Bundle have seen a multitude of free features and additional support.

When you choose the Odyssey for your RAW workflow
you are getting three years of industry-proven stability
and unrivaled value.

It is with this commitment to excellence we can confirm that we are devoted to the Odyssey and the RAW Bundle support and will not be announcing a product to supersede it at NAB 2017. In fact, the Odyssey RAW Bundle will continue to see free updates over the following months.

For a limited time Convergent Design will offer promotional pricing of $495 for the Odyssey Raw Bundle. That’s $500 off our most comprehensive upgrade option, including:


Unleash the slow-motion and burst capabilities of your camera. Record HFR footage as 2K RAW or HD Apple ProRes.

Capture your camera's RAW output directly as Cinema DNG, ARRIRAW (.ARI), or Canon Raw (.RMF) for the best possible image quality.

When a RAW workflow is data-intensive and time consuming, chose this option to record as an edit-ready ProRes file, saving time and media storage.

Record two simultaneous HD signals as perfectly synched Apple ProRes ISO files, uniquely available with Odyssey+Raw Bundle.

*Please see our website for full details on HFR support. RAW Bundle support for this feature depends on the camera’s functionality and performance capability when output as Raw. Support differs by camera. HFR Support includes; Sony FS700/FS7(and mkII) with XDCA Extension/FS5 2K Raw 240p, 120p, 4K60p, and burst mode; Canon C500 4K 60p, Half Raw 120p, 2K 60p, HD 60p, C300mkII 4K 30p. This promotional offer ends 15 April 2017.
