Atomos Releases 4K/HD Shogun Studio

Atomos has released Shogun Studio, a 4K/HD recorder, monitor and playback deck which will fit in a 3RU space.

“Combining recording, playback and monitoring with tremendous ease of use, unleashes powerful and unique feature combinations never seen before in a 3RU dual channel product," says Jeromy Young CEO, Atomos. "Customers will not believe the time, cost and space savings the Shogun Studio offers for Event, Broadcast and ProAV professionals, allowing fast migration to 4K and seamless integration to legacy HD infrastructure."

The deck offers 4K and 1080p60 recording to codecs Apple ProRes, Avid DNxHR and Cinema DNG in 10-bit 4:2:2 quality.

Two channels for dual codec, dual resolution recording so you can record simultaneously (e.g. 4K ProRes on one channel, 2K/HD DNxHD on the other) or convert or duplicate files (e.g. create a 4K ProRes version of a 4K DNxHR file).

The combination of playlist generation and dual channel play out in 4K or down scaled HD can be used to schedule synchronized play out for video walls, signage, projection or broadcast.

The 7" 325ppi monitor offers an array of scopes, 3D LUTs, 2:1/1:1 zoom, 179 degree viewing area, safe area grid lines and can be calibrated using the optional Spyder unit.

The Atomos Master Caddy can be used for reliable, affordable open standard media, something Atomos calls 'the new digital tape'. There is built-in continuous HDMI and SDI down conversion and down scaling from 4K to 2K/HD and dual redundant power supplies.

“In mobile production, the tight squeeze on rack space and rising recording resolutions mean that Shogun Studio will be welcomed for the ability to record, monitor, test, measure, convert and play out from a single 3RU device,” says the company.

For on-set and DIT carts, the deck “offers the fastest path from acquisition to editing by recording direct to 10-bit 422 ProRes, DNxHR or RAW all housed within a world class monitor with test measurement for the highest quality 4K/2K/HD viewing and setup.”
