Atomos Shogun 7 Announced – 1500nit Monitor & ProRes RAW HDR Recorder

The Atomos Shogun 7 is the most featureful recording and monitoring device on the market, capable of recording 5.7K ProRes RAW, live vision switching and an HDR display that allegedly delivers 15+ stops of dynamic range.

Video Recording Up To 5.7K In ProRes RAW

As cameras continue to grow in resolution, as does the recording technology. The Atomos Shogun 7 can record up to 5.7K resolution recording, up to 4K 120fps and 2K 240fps for super slow motion action in ProRes RAW (dependant on camera capability). At present, there isn’t a recorder on the market that is capable of capturing those resolutions and frame rates in RAW, which is an incredible advancement in recording technology. The Shogun 7 seems to replace the Shogun Inferno as Atomos’ flagship recorder.

10-bit 4:2:2 recording is available up to 4K/60p and 2K/240p in ProRes or DNxHR formats, for richer color.

The Atomos Shogun 7 is not restricted by inputs like in previous incarnations; four SDI inputs support support Quad Link, Dual Link or Single Link cinema cameras. There is also one HDMI input and one HDMI output for tethering to additional monitors and making use of the Dolby Vision HDR output.

Audio inputs have also been considered in the Shogun 7, which can take 48V stereo microphone inputs through a balanced XLR breakout cable (optional). The mic or line levels can be selected and gain adjusted on the device and monitored via the 3.5mm mini jack output. The frame delay can also be adjusted.
