NAB 2014 – Atomos Shogun. 4K recorder for under 2K
Atomos Press release NAB 2014:
Atomos will show the brand new 4K Shogun 7” IPS monitor/recorder alongside the new Sony A7S at NAB 2014.
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 Apple 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.
The brand new 4K Apple ProRes Shogun sports a 1920×1200 7” killer monitor and unparalleled affordable 4K recording. It’s the ￼￼world’s first 4K HDMI and 12G SDI monitor recorder and deck with clean HDMI out direct to 4K Apple ProRes onto single SSDs or RAIDed HDDs.
The Shogun utilises both 4K and HD clean output from HDMI cameras such as the latest Sony A7S, Panasonic GH4, 4K SDI C500, and can record 24, 25 or 30p from the camera and up to 120fps HD if the camera is capable. It also has genlock in for synced playout and features optional Wifi for remote control from iOS or Android devices. Improved audio handling with the included Lemo breakout cable for XLR Audio gives balanced audio, mic and Phantom power.
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. 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.
