NAB 2014: Atomos has launched its first 4K monitor and recorder.
The Shogun is a ProRes and RAW capable 12G-SDI and 4K HDMI device that can take 4K and HD clean output from HDMI cameras such as the recently announced Sony A7S, Panasonic GH4 and Canon C500.
“Shogun is the culmination of everything we stand for; amazing edit codecs from the sensor like 4K Apple ProRes and RAW Cinema DNG, affordable 4K recording through raided HDDs and SSDs and unbelievable custom panels for monitoring,” said Atomos chief executive Jeromy Young.
It can record 24, 25 or 30p from the camera and if the camera is capable up to 120fps.
It also has genlock for synced playout and features optional wifi for remote control from iOS or Android devices.
For monitoring, the Shogun has a 1920x1080 SuperAtom IPS 7-inch touchscreen with a 179-degree viewing angle with 400nit brightness.
Priced at “under $2,000” (£1,206), the Shogun is slated for shipping “end of Q3 beginning Q4”.
