​Shogun Studio Now Available

Atomos’ 4K/HD, 2ch, dual 7” 3RU rack recorder, monitor and playback deck is ready to buy. Shogun Studio is designed with a rack environment in mind, essentially transforming what was 10RU of space in the rack to a compact 3RU height and less than half the rack depth.

The unit costs US$ 3,495 (€3,495 / £2,595). As well as saving on rack space Shogun Studio will also minimize the number of power sockets required, use less power and create less heat and so is a more environmental option.

“Shogun Studio offers Event, Broadcast and ProAV professionals a solution that saves time, money and space,” said Jeromy Young, CEO/co-founder of Atomos. “For the same footprint of your existing waveform monitor you get a monitor with a full suite of setup tools along with broadcast quality 4K and HD recording, bi-directional HDMI/SDI conversion, playback, audio monitoring and more.

“For live events the unit solves many of the problems faced by multi camera events with long run times,” Young added. “Our Master Caddy delivers affordable & reliable media while features like time lapse, pre-roll cache & 4K/HD simultaneous recording make this the perfect choice for Event professionals. All of these advanced recording functions are in addition to the dual monitors with built in waveforms/scopes for perfect shot setup.”

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 integrating 2 channels of record and playback with dual 7” monitors. The shallow depth of the unit make it ideal for use in monitor bridges and in conjunction with camera CCU providing focus, exposure and white balance assist tools for remote PTZ cameras.

For On-set and DIT carts, the device offers a path from acquisition to editing by recording direct to 10-bit 422 ProRes, DNxHR or RAW all housed within a monitor with test measurement for 4K/2K/HD viewing and setup. Create dual record back ups, RAW to Apple ProRes/ DNxHR high quality recordings with low res proxies with burnt in LUTS.
