Erik recently posted an article for NewsShooter discussing the Atomos Connect series with the Atomos Cloud workflows. At NAB 2023, Paul from Atomos gave Erik a full Atomos Connect Cloud Studio workflow tour. It has expanded, and they are introducing an editing platform to the workflow this year and many other features.
The three hardware options are the Atomos CONNECT Network, Wireless & SDI Expansion for NINJA V/V+, Atomos Shogun CONNECT 7″ Network-Connected HDR Video Monitor & Recorder, Atomos ZATO CONNECT 5.2″ Network-Connected Video Monitor & Recorder.
ATOMOS CONNECT is the ultimate accessory for the NINJA V and NINJA V+ and represents a ground-breaking innovation for the NINJA product line. The ATOMOS CONNECT fits to the back on the NINJA V/V+ and features a 12G SDI interface, ATOMOS AirGlu™ wireless timecode for seamlessly synchronizing all cameras, multiple power options to accommodate a variety of on-set scenarios, plus Wi-Fi 6, network Gigabit Ethernet, and Bluetooth LE capabilities for flexible connections. When attached to the NINJA V/ V+, the ATOMOS CONNECT transforms professional cinema, mirrorless, and DSLR cameras into fully integrated devices that support a range of advanced cloud-based workflows.
Shogun CONNECT builds on the pedigree of the ground-breaking Shogun product line. Every detail has been redesigned to make Shogun CONNECT the most powerful and versatile device ATOMOS has ever created. It features a brighter 7-inch, 2000nit screen and multiple recording options to provide a premium experience for HDR monitoring and RAW recording. Shogun CONNECT supports SDI RAW inputs up to 6K at 30fps. It can simultaneously loop out standard YCC video via SDI and HDMI to multiple non-RAW compatible devices.
ZATO CONNECT is the second fully integrated device in the CONNECT range and creates a whole new category of product for ATOMOS. The 5-inch ZATO CONNECT has been designed to be a compact, easy-to-use gateway to ATOMOS Cloud Studio. The device supports nearly all HDMI and USB UVC sources for livestreaming and video conferencing. The device features Wi-Fi 5 and Gigabit Ethernet (via USB-C) to ensure maximum network compatibility. Beyond streaming and cloud connectivity, ZATO CONNECT can be used to enhance web conferencing, via the addition of overlay graphics. The device will also convert HDMI sources to webcam signals, so they can be used with Microsoft Teams, WebEx, Slack, Skype, Discord, Zoom, and other conferencing software. AtomOS Lite software contains all the essential tools and makes the ZATO CONNECT extremely easy to setup and operate.
The Atomos Studio Cloud Studio can be accessed after you have an Atomos Connect device. With the highest tier costing $100 per month, they offer a free version and various additional tiers dependent on your needs. You can use frame.io and stream live to numerous social media sites with Atomos Connect, but you can now do much more.
With the service, you can have a control room-type setup for live productions. This includes talkback and tally for cameras.
Atomos has released Atomos Cloud Edit, as Erik already indicated. With Atomos Cloud-Based Editing, the files are sent straight to a bin in the editing platform, similar to camera to cloud, which pushes files to the cloud. This allows you to begin editing right away. There is no installed software; everything is web-based. XML files can also be exported for usage in NLE programs like FCPX, Premiere Pro, and Davinci Resolve.
According to Atomos, they are the only business with fully integrated cloud services and vertical video capture technology. It offers a connection point between the cloud and cameras made by all major manufacturers.
