Atomos, an Australian manufacturer of professional video production technology, confirmed that its 4K Shogun has completed its first production run and will soon start shipping.
The product is currently on show at the CCW Expo in New York.
Atomos claims a number of “world firsts” for the Shogun in the 4K/HD monitor/recorder space including; First 4K monitor/recorder with 12G SDI & 4K HDMI connection and first 4K monitor/recorder with SDI to HDMI & HDMI to SDI conversion.
"The wait is over for thousands of video professionals," said Jeromy Young CEO and co-founder of Atomos. "Having been at the factory personally to oversee the production and testing of our first Shogun units, I can assure the world that the final product will exceed already high expectations."
The user interface is powered by AtomOS6 and includes new monitoring features such as 2:1 zoom and various layout improvements designed to simplify camera setup, shot setup and post production work.
The Shogun records all content to 4:2:2 10-bit, giving the user the choice of HQ/422/LT bit rates, the ability to create Favorite/Reject XML file markers. Furthermore, the camera is not restricted by file size limits in the recording.
Other features include: a 1920×1200 SuperAtom IPS 7" touchscreen at 325 PPI and 178 degree viewing; 400nit brightness and multi-frequency (48/50/60Hz) operation; and genlock-in for synced recording and playout.
