Production powerhouse

Enhance your camera

The new Shogun has an ultra-bright, 7-inch HDR screen that’s easily visible outdoors. Capture RAW video from a vast range of DSLR, mirrorless and cinematic cameras with either SDI or HDMI connections. It’s packed with on-screen tools for focus, exposure, customer LUTs and metadata. Shogun takes care of your workflow while you focus on creative ideas.

Improve your shots through accurate framing and check your exposure and focus on a clear, bright screen. We work with all popular camera manufacturers to support the widest range of cameras. Not just for recording uncompressed video via HDMI or SDI but working with RAW formats and being able to stop/start trigger the camera’s own recording.

RAW inputs up to 6K at 30fps

Ready to RAW

Shogun can capture RAW inputs up to 6K at 30fps and simultaneously output a standard viewable video signal via HDMI or SDI for devices that don’t support RAW formats.

With a versatile 7-inch SuperAtom IPS touchscreen for clear images and easy accessibility to the features in AtomOS, Shogun now has a new operating system and user interface. The screen is designed for outdoor usability, with a generous 2000nits, viewable even in direct sunlight. You can also adjust the screen for optimum performance in dimly lit locations.

NEW FEATURES

Introducing
AtomOS 11

ATOMOS 11

Cleaner,
fresher, faster

Introducing a new version of our operating system, AtomOS 11. Built uniquely for the new Ninja and Shogun series, it not only looks beautiful but introduces a host of great new features. We’ve made the tools more visible and improved the icons so you know exactly what you’re selecting. It’s easier to use, more logical and feels more professional. AtomOS 11 unleashes the full potential of Shogun with new firmware that optimizes memory management for greater responsiveness.

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.

ATOMOS 11

Colorized Exposure

EL Zone System™ exposure referenced colorized image and ARRI False Color

An important new addition to AtomOS 11, EL Zone and ARRI colorized exposure display is a powerful alternative to Atomos false color. It allows Atomos monitors to display consistent colorized exposure across multiple monitors in a production pipeline. EL Zone is designed for camera operators, who can see the true and precise scene-referred dynamic range, colorized in stops, directly from the camera. It’s ideal for assessing exposure in both HDR and SDR production. An established industry standard, it’s the best way to see colorized exposure on a monitor.

ATOMOS 11

TimeLapse

Set up time lapse recording and control it from your Shogun, completely independent of your camera’s controls. Use the Shogun’s screen for accurate visual alignment and its massive removable storage for longer projects.

ATOMOS 11

RecordAssist

Set a time to start recording. It’s ideal for covering pre-arranged events when you need to be somewhere else. If you have several Shoguns, you can even record in multiple locations simultaneously. It’s also a safer way to cover dangerous locations without risk to you and your colleagues. Finally, it’s perfect for wildlife shooting. Want to capture the action by the riverbank at sunset? Just dial-in the time and come back later.

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.

ATOMOS 11

NDI HX2 TX & RX

NDI is a paid option.

NDI is a way to send and receive 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 can take part in an NDI environment. The NDI TX option turns your Shogun into an NDI source, visible to all other authorized devices on the network, whilst the RX option allows you to receive NDI transmissions from compatible NDI devices.

ATOMOS 11

PlaybackAssist

Set a time for your Shogun to play out files and even sequences. Connected to a large screen with HDMI, this is ideal for advertising and digital signage – or just displaying your work at the highest quality.

Industry-standard formats

Feature-packed, 
even more versatile

You can pair the new Shogun with a huge range of video, DSLR, mirrorless or cinematic cameras. Choose from a selection of industry-standard recording formats, including Apple ProRes. Pick the best frame size, frame rate, and codec for your project and delivery requirements. Shogun also allows you to record HDMI RAW inputs up to 6K at 30fps while simultaneously looping out standard YCC video via HDMI to non-RAW compatible devices.

Versatility

Any camera,
any format.
Anywhere.

Pair the Shogun equally well with smaller cameras as part of a minimal setup, or with full-size camera rigs on large-scale productions. Shogun is made from precision materials and crafted for maximum durability with a solid aluminium frame. Weighing only 730g (1.6lbs), you can use it comfortably with a handheld camera. Shogun 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.

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

Your camera’s view, anywhere

Remote view 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 RemoveView feeds on a single screen. It’s all configurable from a simple web interface.

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’.

Frame grab

On set. In post. 
Get creative.

Stage clever cinematic shots and save time in post-production with the powerful Onion Skin and Frame Grab features built-in as standard. Onion skin overlay simplifies stop-motion and jump or match cuts. Capturing frame grabs live on set saves time making thumbnails and acts as a quick reference to share with the team.

Superior Monitoring

A complete monitoring toolbox

Shogun 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.

Evaluate the brightness of your image, regardless of the color

Camera rig

A highly secure
mount

From individuals to large-scale cinema productions, Shogun has been built to fit into any camera rig. It features a versatile mount that can be adapted to suit different industry-standard equipment from a wide range of manufacturers. Once locked in place the mount is highly secure and offers anti-rotation settings, so you can trust Shogun to remain in place at all times.

Atom Remote

Connect.
Control.

Supported resolutions & frame rates

Add value to your production

To save space and support longer recordings, many cameras record compressed 4:2:0 8-bit video internally. If the camera is able to output video via HDMI, the quality can often be preserved in a 4:2:2 8-bit or 10-bit format. Shogun can record more color information and immediately add value to your production with your existing camera rig.

Additionally, if you’re shooting Log footage, the ability to bypass internal compression will offer the best possible dynamic range. Shogun is designed to maximize the quality of your videos and allow you to extend every aspect of your creative vision. Shogun also includes 12G-SDI input, the standard on high-end cinema cameras, including the Sony FX series, Panasonic EVA1, and Canon EOS C series. The robustness and utility of SDI is critical for the productions that rely on it. SDI RAW provides the ultimate experience in terms of flexibility and quality, which makes Shogun the ideal choice for big budget filmmakers around the world.

WIRELESS SYNC

Perfectly synchronised

Atomos AirGlu™ is included with the Shogun 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 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 6K using advanced edit-ready formats including ProRes RAW, ProRes, and DNxHD/HR requires fast, robust, and expansive storage. Shogun 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 Connect without impacting the overall footprint of the device.

6K RAW

High definition recording

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 box.

With Shogun 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.
