Atomos has released the latest firmware update for the Shogun Connect and Atomos Connect that will now enable Camera to Cloud (C2C) workflows. The company says this means a number of digital cinema, mirrorless and DSLR cameras can deliver media directly from production to post.

Conventional workflows require a significant amount of media movement, which must be proactively managed to ensure footage is tracked, securely backed up and delivered to all the right locations. The C2C workflow claims to skip a number of these steps and provide a direct path for production to send media directly to the post-production teams. Media is transferred from C2C certified devices on set to the cloud, for viewing, approval and editing., an Adobe company, and Atomos say they “recognize a shift in technology that will enable a new kind of filmmaking.”

The roadmap for C2C envisions a tipping point in the next few years where internet bandwidth will become ubiquitous. As a result, Atomos says cameras will be able to dispense with removable media entirely, and it will be common practice for filmmakers to use C2C to upload full resolution 8K RAW files from remote locations. To support this vision, Adobe and Atomos have worked together to make C2C available to more cameras and easier to use for everyone.

When capturing to, the device can be set to record high-quality “hero” and bandwidth-efficient “proxy” files simultaneously. The files are created with matching filenames and timecodes so that they can be easily swapped in an NLE later. Recording in this way produces great-looking HEVC (H.265) “proxy” clips alongside full-resolution “hero” clips in either Avid DNxHR/HD or Apple ProRes.

Atomos Connect and Shogun Connect devices are paired with using ATOMOS Cloud Studio. Once the devices are registered and linked to a account, media can be uploaded immediately. Every file is instantly available to view in, or download into integrated video applications, including Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, and DaVinci Resolve. With C2C and ATOMOS anyone is able to collaborate from anywhere in the world. C2C support is included in AtomOS 10.81 available for download now.
