Convergent Design Announces Support for Panasonic VariCam LT 240fps 2K RAW, and DNxHD for Odyssey and Apollo

LAS VEGAS, NV (April 23, 2017) Today Panasonic announced a free firmware update that adds a 2K RAW up to 240fps to the VariCam LT. All available RAW outputs will be supported by Convergent Design in the Raw Bundle for Odyssey7Q+ and Odyssey7Q via a free firmware update in June 2017.

“We are excited to announce our continued support for the Panasonic VariCam LT. The 2K 240fps update fits nicely into the Odyssey Raw Bundle high frame rate support, and adds versatility to the VariCam LT. The Odyssey and VariCam LT are an ideal pairing and we look forward to our joint firmware release,” said Mike Schell, President of Convergent Design.

Convergent Design will also release free firmware in May supporting Avid DNxHD 4:2:2 for the Odyssey7Q+ and Odyssey7Q in single-channel recording, and for Apollo and Apollo Option multi-camera HD. This upcoming release will support bit rates of 220Mb and 145Mb up to 60p from HD video sources. Broadcast applications, especially in Apollo multi-camera operation, will enjoy a native Avid workflow.
