Atomos has announced the Shogun 7 – price tag $1,499 – a new 7-inch HDR monitor, recorder and switcher that promises 15+ stops of dynamic range and a 1920×1200 panel with a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio.

The Atomos Shogun 7 uses a combination of advanced LED and LCD technologies which together promise deeper blacks and more vivid colours.

A new 360 zone backlight combined with the new screen technology helps deliver a wider colour gamut which is controlled by the Shogun 7’s Dynamic AtomHDR engine.

Atomos has also partnered with Dolby to create Dolby Vision HDR live, which enables users to see HDR live on set. Dolby helped achieve this by optimising its target display HDR processing algorithm, which Atomos has integrated in the Shogun 7.

Dolby Vision HDR brings real-time automatic frame-by-frame analysis of the Log or RAW video and processes it for optimal HDR viewing on a Dolby Vision-capable TV or monitor over HDMI.

What’s more, connect the Shogun 7 to a Dolby Vision TV and the AtomOS 10 operating system automatically analyses the image, queries the TV, and applies the right colour and brightness profiles for the maximum HDR experience on the display.

Recording

Shogun 7 records the best possible images up to 5.7kp30, 4kp120 or 2kp240 slow motion from compatible cameras, in RAW/Log or HLG/PQ over SDI/HDMI. Footage is stored directly to reliable AtomX SSDmini or approved off-the-shelf SATA SSD drives.

There are recording options for Apple ProRes RAW and ProRes, Avid DNx and Adobe CinemaDNG RAW codecs. Shogun 7 has four SDI inputs plus a HDMI 2.0 input, with both 12G-SDI and HDMI 2.0 outputs. It can record ProRes RAW in up to 5.7kp30, 4kp120 DCI/UHD and 2kp240 DCI/HD, depending on the camera’s capabilities.

10-bit 4:2:2 ProRes or DNxHR recording is available up to 4Kp60 or 2Kp240. The four SDI inputs enable the connection of most Quad Link, Dual Link or Single Link SDI cinema cameras. With Shogun 7 every pixel is perfectly preserved with data rates of up to 1.8Gb/s.

Monitor and record professional XLR audio

Shogun 7 eliminates the need for a separate audio recorder. Add 48V stereo mics via an optional balanced XLR breakout cable. Select Mic or Line input levels, plus record up to 12 channels of 24/96 digital audio from HDMI or SDI.

You can monitor the selected stereo track via the 3.5mm headphone jack. There are dedicated audio meters, gain controls and adjustments for frame delay.

Portable multi-cam live switching and recording for Shogun 7 and Sumo 19 Shogun 7 is also the ultimate portable touch-screen controlled multi-camera switcher with asynchronous quad-ISO recording. Switch up to four 1080p60 SDI streams, record each plus the program output as a separate ISO, then deliver ready-for-edit recordings with marked cut-points in XML metadata straight to your NLE. The current Sumo19 HDR production monitor-recorder will also gain the same functionality in a free firmware update. Sumo19 and Shogun 7 are the ideal devices to streamline your multi-camera live productions.
