LOCAL AND CLOUD

Choose your workflow

Shogun Ultra has two faces: Local and Cloud. Use it conventionally, and you have an incredible HDR screen, new monitoring tools and both HDMI and 12G-SDI. Turn on its wireless and network capabilities, and you have access to new and productive cloud workflows like camera to cloud and Atomos Edit. You can even edit your project in the cloud and publish directly to social media within minutes of shooting the action.

RAW CAPTURE

Enhance your camera

Shogun Ultra can capture RAW inputs up to 8K at 30fps, 6K at 60fps and 4K at 30fps and simultaneously output a standard viewable video signal via HDMI or SDI for devices that don’t support RAW formats. With a super bright 2000nit 7-inch SuperAtom IPS touchscreen for clear images and easy accessibility to the features in AtomOS, Shogun Ultra has a new operating system and user interface.

NEW FEATURES

The Ultimate
Shogun

In addition to network and SDI connectivity, you get access to super-efficient cloud workflows, and you can cross-convert between HDMI and SDI. Take advantage of the new, ultra-fast and reliable WiFI 6E for more stable connections. Shogun Ultra, which can be remote-controlled over Bluetooth with AtomRemote App, is the most practical and affordable way to stream, transfer and edit in the cloud.

CUSTOM FILE SIZE

SegmentPro

SegmentPro is another powerful new tool exclusive to our completely redesigned AtomOS 11 operating system. It allows you to segment/split long recordings into user-defined chunks, adding even more flexibility to the production workflow. The segmenting can be defined by setting a custom file size limit, in GB or TB, or by time, all without dropping a frame.

With SegmentPro you can fit your files into any workflow – even those that require smaller media (for example, if you are going to edit on an iPad). It’s easier to share smaller files, and safer too: if you lose a big file, you’ve lost everything. Working with smaller files minimizes this risk.

Dual Record

Capture simultaneously up to 4K 60p ProRes RAW and HD 60p H.265

Record full-quality files in ProRes RAW up to 4K 60p while at the same time recording HD 60p to H.265. It’s the best of both worlds. Boost your productivity by storing your definitive copy in ProRes RAW ready for your post-production workflow, and use your H.265 copy for your camera to cloud activities.

camera-to-cloud

Publish from the cloud

Record higher-quality media for instant publishing. The new 4K camera to cloud mode lets you record and upload much higher quality H.265 video with higher framerates.* H.265 files are half the size of H.264 media. They’re small enough for camera-to-cloud workflows but more than good enough for immediate use on social media, sports reporting or news gathering. It’s the fastest way to get your video in front of your viewers (requires Atomos Cloud Studio (ACS) subscription). Also a super useful mode to record proxies at up to 4K 60p to match a original in-camera (OCF) file.

*Classic or Premium Atomos Cloud Studio subscription required.

CODEC Choice

Multiple Codecs

The new Shogun line includes these codecs free of charge, so you can choose the ideal codec for your projects.

  • Apple ProRes
  • Apple ProRes RAW
  • H.265
  • DNx (QuickTime)

Apple ProRes is pre-activated to use out of the box, so you can start shooting immediately. To activate H.265 and DNx, visit my.atomos.com to register your Shogun and follow the simple online instructions.

To activate Apple ProRes RAW, you need to go to my.atomos.com. There is a small additional step to get an activation token to access the codec for free. Simply plug in your compatible RAW camera to complete the process. You only need to do it once to unlock this super-flexible and unique codec without time restrictions.

Video over IP

NDI HD and 4K TX

4k TX is a paid option.

NDI is a way to send video over ordinary networks (including Wi-Fi and mobile) in high quality but with remarkably low bandwidth requirements. It’s increasingly used in live production, and now your Shogun Ultra can take part in an NDI environment. The NDI TX option turns your Shogun Ultra into an 
NDI source, visible to all other authorized devices 
on the network.

SDI CINE

Original camera filenames over SDI

Automatically match filenames, timecode and record triggers from ARRI, Canon, RED and Sony cameras. Previously, camera to cloud relied on matching filenames with hero and proxy files made by AtomOS. Now, thanks to cooperation with ARRI, Canon, RED 
and Sony, Atomos C2C files are matched back to the original in-camera (OCF) filenames. This gives a joined-up process when conforming C2C or SSD proxy files 
in the edit with camera files. On camera or on Atomos: it’s your choice.

Versatility

Any camera, any format. Anywhere.

Pair Shogun Ultra equally well using SDI or HDMI with smaller cameras as part of a minimal setup or with full-size camera rigs on large-scale productions. Shogun Ultra is made from precision materials with a solid aluminium frame, crafted for maximum durability. Weighing only 730g (1.6lbs), you can use it comfortably with a handheld camera. Shogun Ultra includes anti-rotational ⅜ – 16 mount points on the top and bottom. It ships with a ¼ – 20 adaptor for easy mounting on industry-standard equipment from a wide range of manufacturers.

Compatible Cameras

SHARE FROM ANYWHERE

Introducing
RemoteView

Atomos RemoteView lets you share incoming video on your Atomos screen with other Atomos monitors, as well as with iPads, Macs and Apple TVs wirelessly. You can monitor what’s happening on-set and look through any connected camera taking the shot from anywhere in the world.

Atomos technology

Global, low
latency video

RemoteView doesn’t need expensive hardware and uses the public internet, so it’s global. But Atomos technology ensures there are no delays. You can receive up to four RemoteView feeds on a single screen. It’s all configurable from a simple web interface. Atomos RemoteView needs an Atomos Connect but no additional hardware.

Powered by a unique combination of AtomOS 11 and Atomos Cloud Studio, you can share with the person standing next to you or someone across the globe just as easily.

Security

Secure and personalized

For absolute security, you can burn a watermark into each remote video feed, so there’s no risk of copying. You can also brand your footage with your own or your customer’s logo. Or put the movie name, date, type of camera – any information you think will be helpful, burnt into your remote feeds.

Atomos RemoteView requires a subscription to Atomos Cloud Services. It uses Atomos Credits for a simple “pay as you go” service.

Versatility

Stream from Anywhere

Shogun Ultra supports live streaming to a range of online services including acebook Live, Twitch, YouTube, and custom RTMP/S. With Wi-Fi 6E, Gigabit Ethernet, and the ability to join cellular hotspots all built-in, Shogun CONNECT helps filmmakers, streamers, and video content producers reach their audience from anywhere.

Key Features

  • Support for more camera models with 12G-SDI
  • SDI input to HDMI output conversion
  • Wi-Fi 6E and 1GbE Ethernet
  • Stream to Facebook, Twitch, YouTube, and custom RTMP/S services

Superior Monitoring

A complete monitoring toolbox

Shogun Ultra includes comprehensive monitoring tools to help you get the perfect composition and exposure in every shot. Easy-to-use but powerful tools include waveform, focus peaking, multiple false color tools, zoom controls, custom LUTs, and frame guides. Shogun’s new AtomOS 11 software is simple to update with new features and releases – as well as support for new cameras.

WIRELESS SYNC

Perfectly synchronised

Atomos AirGlu™ is included with the Shogun Ultra and adds wireless timecode, sync, and control technology. AirGlu locks multiple Atomos devices or compatible cameras, audio recorders and software applications together so that they share the same frame-accurate timecode. It is also able to relay recording, battery status, and disk capacity information to the server unit. Any AirGlu device can act as the server unit, which means you’ll no longer need a huge budget or get involved in time-consuming post-production workflows to produce perfectly synchronized, multi-camera video. AirGlu BT is the Bluetooth timecode sync protocol adopted by many camera and audio manufacturers, and AirGlu RF is the long-range sync and control protocol between Atomos connect products.

Professional codec support

Versatility
and power

With flexible options for industry standard formats and RAW codecs, Shogun Ultra records visually lossless “hero” files that are ready for editing and proxy/sharable files that look great but are quick to upload.

Shogun is designed to be versatile and meet the requirements of your workflow. Atomos understands the value in being able to select the format, quality, resolution, frame rate, or file size that best suits the needs of your production.

Apple ProRes RAW

Up to 12-Bit RAW via HDMI & SDI.

Apple ProRes

Edit-ready codec from Apple, with scalable levels of compression.

Avid DNxHD/HR

Edit-ready codec from Avid, with scalable levels of compression.

HEVC (H.265)*

A highly efficient compressed codec that allows you to create high-quality, low bit-rate and smaller-sized files for sharing.

You can also create 4K HDR 10-bit deliverables or use the option to bake in custom LUTs to achieve specialist looks during production.

*HEVC (H.265) dual recording is only enabled in Camera to Cloud mode. To use H.265 dual or single recording outside of this mode, a separate H.265 license is required. For more information, visit my.atomos.com

AtomX SSDmini drive

Record without limitations

The ability to record up to 8K using advanced edit-ready formats including ProRes RAW, ProRes, and DNxHD/HR requires fast, robust, and expansive storage. Shogun Ultra supports removable SSD drives, which provide the space and sustained performance to meet these needs.

AtomX SSDmini drives are more compact than standard SATA SSDs and offer an affordable alternative to an SD card of similar capacity or performance. They support up to 4TB storage, sequential read speeds of up to 550MB/s and write speeds up to 500MB/s. The AtomX SSDmini drives are able to record up to 150 minutes of 4K ProRes. Measuring 8cm long, 7.5cm wide and weighing as little as 88g, the custom-built drive neatly fits into the Shogun without impacting the overall footprint of the device.

8K RAW

4TB

Lots of storage

Data Speed

Read and write speed up to 550Mb/s

SSDmini adaptor

More flexibility

There is an optional SSDmini adaptor that allows CFAST II cards to be used, enabling you to recycle older media cards or align with your camera media. Alongside SSDmini we also qualify a range of 2.5-inch SSDs that can be used in conjunction with the MasterCaddy III adaptor in the Shogun Ultra box.

With Shogun Utra the only limitation to how much you can record is the size of the SSD. A core principle of Atomos devices is to provide much more flexibility in terms of recording codec, resolution, and frame rate than is normally available with internal recording. SSD media also provides more GB per $ than camera media cards. This provides extended recorded times for long form productions or recording events.
