NAB 2013 news: Sony and Convergent Design offer 4K NEX-FS700 solutions

Sony’s 4K-ready NEX-FS700 is about to become 4K capable with the release of Sony’s R5 recorder and Convergent Design’s Odyssey 7Q. As Sony’s Juan Martinez explains in this clip from NAB, Sony have finalised the specs and workflow for their own R5 recorder, and have also licenced technology to Convergent Design so that they can come up with an alternative solution.

The Convergent Design Odyssey 7Q will record 4K at up to 30fps, and 2K at up to 240fps. It records to a pair of 2.5″ high performance SSDs, and can fit about 45 minutes’ worth of 2K footage on two 960GB SSDs. However, the most intriguing thing about it is that it actually ships as a 7.7″ OLED monitor, and you subsequently rent or purchase the ability to rent any codecs you need to record in from the Convergent Design website.
