AtomOS Shogun 7 Now Enables ProRes RAW From Sony’s FX6

Recording over SDI from the FX6 to the Shogun 7 extends the performance of the Sony FX6 leading by taking 16-bit linear RAW data from its state-of-the-art Exmor R CMOS image sensor and recording it in the flexible and efficient ProRes RAW format.

“Recorded with log 12-bit color depth, corresponding to over 68 billion color graduations. FX6’s standard professional interface of 12G-SDI and SDI RAW output direct from the main camera body allows for a very powerful professional combination when used with the Shogun 7,” explains Jeromy Young, Atomos CEO.

“Content creators and filmmakers also benefit from the storage advantage of ProRes RAW, where the codec harnesses the ability to capture 12-bit RAW in the same file sizes as 10-bit 422 standard ProRes. In addition to their ground-breaking combination of flexibility and performance, Apple ProRes RAW files are smaller than other RAW file types – simplifying and accelerating file transfer, media management, and archiving.

Atomos Shogun 7 users can now update their monitor-recorder-switcher with the AtomOS 10.43 update to enable ProRes RAW recording. The FX6 will come readily enabled with SDI RAW output.
