NAB 2014 – 4K Combination from Atomos and Sony
Atomos just announced an external 4K recorder which doubles at a 7″ screen. We will be covering this hands-on on the floor from when the show starts tomorrow.
For now, here’s the press release from Atomos:
4K Killer Combination from Atomos and Sony
Atomos 7” Shogun and Sony A7S Camera 4K Recording Solution Shown for the First Time at NAB 2014
￼￼￼Atomos, the creator of the award-winning Apple ProRes Ninja and ￼Samurai camera-mounted recorders, and the pocket-sized Connect converters, will show the brand new 4K ￼Shogun 7” IPS monitor/recorder alongside the new Sony A7S at NAB 2014. The Shogun is currently the only 4K ￼HDMI recording solution that can take full advantage of the new A7S’s full 35mm ultra-sensitive 12 mega pixel ￼video sensor, clean HDMI out, 120 fps HD and custom HDMI timecode and start/stop trigger.
￼”Finally the camera the world has been waiting for, Sony has pulled out all the stops to deliver the world’s first ￼Full Frame Video sensor in a camera for the masses.” said Jeromy Young, CEO and Founder of Atomos. “We ￼are very proud to give 4K recording capability to the Sony A7S with our brand new 4K ProRes Shogun which sports a 1920×1200 7” killer monitor and unparalleled affordable 4K recording”￼￼. The Atomos Shogun is the world’s first 4K HDMI and 12G SDI monitor recorder and deck. With clean HDMI out direct to 4K ProRes onto single SSDs or RAIDed HDDs – 4K is now a mainstream ￼reality at the equivalent of $40 per hour for storage media. With Sony’s pedigree and reliability coupled with Atomos’ revolutionary feature set and price points, this combination at under $5K is the most compelling video solution on the market today. ￼Like the Samurai and Ninja Blade, Shogun allows the recording of pristine, 422 10-bit images straight from the ￼camera sensor captured using 4K/HD ProRes, Uncompressed RAW Cinema DNG or Avid DNxHD codecs.￼Waveform and monitor assist tools such as luma parade, vectorscope and tri-level focus peaking offer a very ￼comprehensive test and shot setup tool kit. ￼￼￼launch presentation and Q&A on day one of the show to be held at 12.30pm on the Atomos booth C9532.
￼Pricing and Availability
￼The Atomos Shogun is slated for shipping end of Q3 beginning Q4 2014 for under $2000
￼USD and will be available through the Atomos Worldwide reseller network.
