Atomos just launched Connect, an affordable bridge between professional 4K video capture and UVC streaming over USB (up to 1080p@60Hz). Connect works with any HDMI device, including the entire Atomos range. It has universal support from popular streaming platforms. At only $79 USD, it’s a way for gamers, vloggers and education facilities to up their streaming game using the professional Atomos monitor-recorder ecosystem.
Connect bridges the Atomos world of professional recording and monitoring with popular streaming platforms such as YouTube, Twitch and OBS. Use your Atomos device for professional shot setup and recording and use Connect to simply convert the HDMI output to USB on the go for streaming on your Mac or PC.
With a slim 0.5-inch profile, Connect needs no drivers, nor does it need a power supply, and it allows any HDMI device to be connected to a Mac or PC.
The Atomos Shogun 7 allows you to monitor and record up to four 1080p@60Hz streams simultaneously and then cue and switch in real-time with a simple touch of the screen. Additionally, the Shogun 7 can accept asynchronous feeds (sources don’t need to be locked), allowing the user to use more affordable cameras for multicamera production. Adding in Connect lets you output the switched feed for livestreaming on your Mac or PC. This makes the Shogun 7 Connect package one of the easiest and most affordable options for professional switching.
