High Frame Rate (HFR) Recording

The Odyssey7Q+ monitor recorder is capable of recording and processing video at high speeds. With high frame rate (HFR) recording the image can be reach new heights of clarity and smooth motion, or the frames can be played back at standard speeds to create slow motion. High frame rate capabilities are camera system and resolution dependent. The Odyssey7Q+ never “creates” frames, only captures them, so a camera must have an output for a high frame rate in order for the Odyssey7Q+ to record it.


The Odyssey LUT System

(Requires Odyssey Firmware v2015.5)

Contributing to the power and versatility of the Odyssey7Q and Odyssey7Q+ is the ability to display and route 3D-LUTs. Signals with 3D-LUTs applied can be displayed on the OLED, measured on the Image Analysis Tools and output over HDMI and/or multiple SDI outputs.
