Atomos Launches Ninja Star And 4K Shogun

News Image
At this year's NAB Show in Las Vegas, Atomos unveiled its latest innovations in camera mounted recorders, the 4K Shogun and the Ninja Star.

"Shogun is the culmination of everything we stand for; amazing edit codec’s from the sensor like 4K ProRes and RAW Cinema DNG. Affordable 4K recording through Raided HDDs and SSDs and unbelievable custom panels for monitoring," said Jeromy Young, CEO and Founder of Atomos. "Super light and slim and at a price point under 2K. We offer a faster, more affordable camera to timeline workflow with revolutionary 4K cameras from Sony, Panasonic and Canon."
The Shogun is the world's first 12G SDI & 4K HDMI I/O monitor recorder and deck and features a 1920x1080 SuperAtom IPS 7" touchscreen 325 PPI 179-degree viewing, 400nit brightness and multi-frequency (48/50/60Hz) operation, depending on video input.
The Shogun utilises both 4K and HD clean output from HDMI cameras such as the latest Sony A7S, Panasonic GH4, 4K SDI C500 and can record 24, 25 or 30p from the camera and up to 120fps HD, if the camera is capable. It also has genlock in for synced playout and features optional Wifi for remote control from iOS or Android devices. Improved audio handling with the included Lemo breakout cable for XLR Audio gives balanced audio, mic and Phantom power.
Shogun allows users to set up the shot with waveform and monitor assist tools, record 422 10-bit images straight from the camera sensor directly, all to single SSDs or RAIDed HDDs, captured using 4K/HD ProRes.

Also released at NAB 2014 was the Atomos Ninja Star, an external HDMI recorder featuring a small, self-contained size and flexible mounting options to allow DPs and cameramen to mount to just about any POV set-up and offer edit-ready format recording with ProRes.
The dimensions of the Ninja Star are 3.5" wide, 2.3" tall and 0.8" deep and it weighs 100g (3.5 oz).
The Ninja Star can record in both HD and ProRes to capture 422 10-bit images straight from any camera sensor directly to first generation CFast media with up to 3hrs ProRes. It also features Timecode and Start/Stop Trigger along with Audio Line-in.
