Hey everyone, happy holiday season. Ok, so I did a search on the forum and found nothing on this product. The Nebtek Odyssey 7. It’s OLED, has on board recording capabilities…


Anyone have any thoughts? Thanks.

I'm on the waiting list for a Odyssey 7Q with Abel right now.  I made the decision to purchase based on it's recording ability.  

It's made by Convergent the same people who make the nano-flash and Gemini recorders.  Out of the box it will record 

DNxHD format.  Depending on what model you purchase you can rent other types of codec recording capabilities on a per day basis.

Sony S-log, Arri Raw etc... The 7Q will allow you to quad split and view 4 inputs at a the same time which is handy in some multi camera setups. 

It has a nice picture, parade waveform, vector-scope and other test functions.   I don't think it could stands up to the rigors of Steadicam operation on a full time basis.  I'm buying it as great AC's monitor that can double as a back up recorder in the event of disaster when I'm far from production resources.

My apologies. It has been brought to my attention that the odyssey 7 monitor is not a Nebtek but in fact a Convergence product. Nebtek had it on their site so it confused me.


Paul thanks for your response.

I saw it at band pro and while the color is spot on and the quad split is nice it's a not a daylight viewable monitor. Convergent suggest that you use a full hood for it
