Atomos Show 4K Shogun and Ninja Star Recorders at InfoComm
Melbourne, Australia – April 29th, 2014: Atomos, the creator of the award-winning Ninja and Samurai camera-mounted recorders and the Connect converters, will exhibit at InfoComm14, 18th -20th June, Las Vegas Convention Center (Booth number C6349).
“InfoComm is the perfect venue for Atomos to bring its product solutions to the professional audio video market”, said Matt Ivey, Atomos President for the Americas. “Our solutions are in daily use across the world in some impressive and challenging event and mobile production installations with broadcasters, universities and community TV. And with our new Shogun we are now able to bring 4K recording and playback to the AV market.”
Visitors to InfoComm 2014 will have a chance to see the brand new 4K Shogun and the compact Ninja Star which were both launched and received numerous awards at NAB in April along with the now shipping Ninja Blade.
The new Atomos Shogun is the world’s first 12G SDI & 4K HDMI I/O monitor recorder and deck and features a stunning 1920×1200 SuperAtom IPS 7″ touchscreen 325 PPI 179-degree viewing. 400nit brightness and multi-frequency (48/50/60Hz) operation, depending on video input, giving super-smooth monitoring and playback.
The Shogun utilizes both 4K and HD clean output from HDMI cameras such as the latest Sony A7S, Panasonic GH4, 4K SDI Canon C500, and can record 24, 25 or 30p from the camera and up to 120fps regular 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.
Like the Samurai and Ninja Blade, Shogun allows you to set up the shot with waveform and monitor assist tools, record pristine, 422 10-bit images straight from the camera sensor directly, all to inexpensive single SSDs or RAIDed HDDs, captured using 4K/HD ProRes, Uncompressed RAW Cinema DNG or Avid DNxHD codecs.
Also new from NAB 2014 is the Atomos Ninja Star and Atomos CEO Jeromy Young said “This is one of our best creations yet!”
The Ninja Star is the next breakthrough in external HDMI recorders based on core technologies that have made Atomos the leader in camera mounted solutions. Its small, self-contained size and flexible mounting options allow DP’s and cameramen to mount it to just about any POV set-up and offer edit ready format recording with ProRes.
The dimensions of the Ninja Star are slender at only 3.5″ wide, 2.3″ tall and 0.8″ deep and it weighs a fraction of a normal recorder at just 100grams (3.5 oz). The Ninja Star is perfect for creative or extreme camera work or in situations where a large monitor is prohibitive or stealth is required.
