ZATO CONNECT

A great little networker

SUBHEADING

NDI on the go

Zato is a lightweight, go-anywhere 5-inch monitor with networking talents. Connect any camera with HDMI or USB/UVC to a network for time-saving and distance-busting workflows like Camera to Cloud and live cloud production, courtesy of Atomos Cloud Studio. Receive and view an NDI | HX2 stream from any device on the network.

Confidence monitor

Pan. Tilt. Zato.

Many PTZ (Pan, Tilt and Zoom) cameras now come with NDI | HX2, a bandwidth-friendly version of NDI that uses H.264 as its compression codec. Simply plug Zato into a network and you’ll see every available NDI | HX2 source. Use Zato’s simple touchscreen interface to select which network channel you wish to view. It’s ideal for large and small scale camera installations, where it can be used as a confidence monitor or for fault-tracing.

Camera to Cloud

The Power 
of Camera 
to Cloud

Zato Connect is packed with all the features you’d expect from Atomos, and streamlined for speed. A brilliant monitor, essential I/O and onboard recording are just the start of it. Connecting to the cloud with Zato gives you superpowers. That’s because you can capture, edit and post your social media content in the fastest possible way.

While you shoot, Zato uploads your video to the cloud. It will just be “there” for you as soon as you’re ready to edit – or a friend can start editing while you’re shooting. There’s no downloading because, with Atomos Edit*, part of Atomos Cloud Services (ACS), you edit in the cloud, via a browser, on almost any device.

Edit in the cloud

While you shoot, Zato uploads your video to the cloud. It will just be “there” for you as soon as you’re ready to edit – or a friend can start editing while you’re shooting. There’s no downloading because, with Atomos Edit*, part of Atomos Cloud Services (ACS), you edit in the cloud, via a browser, on almost any device.

Camera to Cloud (C2C) is a simple-to-use, secure method to share media and collaborate in real-time. Through Atomos Cloud Studio you have a choice of C2C platform: Adobe Frame.io or Sony Ci Media. Zato Connect acts as a gateway to the cloud for an increasingly wide range of digital cinema, mirrorless and DSLR cameras that would not otherwise be able to connect to a network or manage file transfers.

CONNECTIVITY

Stream from anywhere

Connect to the internet using Wi-Fi 5 or Ethernet (via USB-C adapter) via your home/work network or cellular hotspot. Zato Connect is an ideal solution for live streaming in the field, the studio, or practically anywhere else. Mount it directly on a DSLR or mirrorless camera, but it’s equally at home next to a multi-input switcher, such as our AtomX Cast, or a gaming console for a fully computerless streaming workflow. You can power it for hours from a single NP-F battery or use mains power via USB-C PD.

Portable monitoring

A switcher’s new best friend

Use Zato Connect as a portable program monitor and streaming encoder and make it your multi-input switcher’s new best friend. There’s no need for a heavy laptop at every gig: Zato can handle many of its tasks with a much smaller footprint. It fits into any camera bag and comes in super light at 245g.

Multiple I/O

HDMI & USB-UVC

Even though it’s incredibly compact, Zato Connect has input and output ports for both HDMI and USB-UVC. It accepts a wide variety of video sources and can output a live stream – or appear to a computer as a webcam source. It also comes with a 3.5mm audio jack for mic or line inputs, and you can monitor audio via a dedicated headphone output.

RECORDING

Record and Restream

You can record an HDMI or Webcam input or your ongoing livestream or presentation as a backup. Recordings are to an SD card in the bandwidth and storage-friendly H.264 format. You can then use these recordings to stream “as live”. It’s the best of all worlds.
