*** APOLLO / ODYSSEY FIRMWARE v2016.06 ***

Convergent Design will be releasing Firmware 2016.06, the largest, most comprehensive ever offered by Convergent Design, on Tuesday, 7-June-2016.  

Twenty-three new features cover functions for Apollo, Odyssey7Q+, Odyssey7Q, and Odyssey7. Twenty-Two fixes and improvements to current functions also cover the same models. And there are new versions of two free software apps. Detailed release notes are included below. All of these updates are free to the owners of the Apollo and Odyssey products. Convergent Design continues to expand upon a product line first delivered to clients 2.5 years ago, including gifting features that were previously charged upgrades. 

Of the many new features, fixes and improvements, while some were announced at NAB 2016, most are debuting with this announcement. Because this firmware is so expansive, Convergent Design has produced several videos to help illustrate and explain the new functionality. There is an overview of the new functions as well as four short instructional videos detailing specific functions. Additionally, because the functionality of Apollo was dramatically expanded, a new extensive Apollo Tutorial video is also available. These assets are available for linking or embedding.

Apollo Double Master Recording

Capture files to two SSDs simultaneously for instant backup. Hand one off to production and hold the other for safe keeping.

Apollo A/V Align

Intermix cameras with different signal latency and keep both audio and video in sync. Mix cameras from different manufacturers and with different signal processing and compensate for their delays in outputting signals.

3:2 Pulldown Removal

Intermix HD 3:2 Pulldown video cameras with 24p cameras. Mix cameras that output 24p as 1080i60 with embedded 3:2 pulldown and cameras that output 1080p24, all on the fly with matching timecode.

Live Switching Dissolves

Three speeds of dissolves available in live switching. A shortcut button allows alternating between cuts and dissolves for a more professional live edit.

Eight-Channel Audio

Eight tracks of audio for each SDI video input. Apollo Dual-4K offers up to 16 total audio tracks and Apollo Quad-HD offers up to 32 audio tracks. (All Odyssey models and Apollo)

Sony FS5 RAW

Record in CinemaDNG or Apple ProRes. 4K60p, 4K120p Burst, 2K240p. Odyssey provides the most complete support of Sony FS cameras in the industry. (Odyssey7Q/Odyssey7Q+)
